Before we’ve even caught our breath from Bonnaroo, we are onto the next big gig — the first-ever Bourbon & Beyond Festival. On September 23 and 24, music, food, and bourbon will collide in Louisville, Kentucky, and we’ll be there. The weekend’s lineup includes Stevie Nicks, the Steve Miller Band, Amos Lee, Band of Horses, Buddy Guy, Nikki Lane, Fantastic Negrito, and many more, plus a slew of celebrity chefs and a bevy of tasty bourbons.
