How To Score a Taste of Pappy Van Winkle in Fort Thomas

The Midway Café is hosting a 1920’s Prohibition Party on December 1, 2017. Entry time is 9:00 p.m.

"We're releasing eight bottles of Pappy Van Winkle," said Erika Kraus, one of the owners of Midway. "We're really excited to be able to offer them to our local friends and customers who have been so great to us."

The Midway was able to acquire the extremely rare bourbon from a distributor. They'll have the 10 year, 12 year, 15 year, and 23 year available.

"We wanted to price the bourbon for people to enjoy, not just to sit on our shelves," said Staci Edmonds, another owner of Midway.

So, how can you join in on the bourbon-fun?

1) Get your password. 

Comment on this article or ask for the password on Fort Thomas Matters social media pages. Once you have that, give that to the doorman for the night. Midway will be closed to the general public at 9:00 p.m.

2) Dress in your favorite cocktail party or 1920s attire.

3) Have fun. 

Fort Thomas Matters and Living Media, Inc. has purchased a pour of Pappy 23 year that one lucky person in attendance will receive.

Braxton Beer will be there with six beers named for the Roaring '20s.

A $5 cover will support The Care Closet, who's mission is to support students in Campbell County by providing clothing, furniture and everyday needs.
