Town Branch Distillery was the eight stop for my wife and I while taking the Bourbon Trail. At this point in the week we thought that this would be a similar stop and we would likely be most interested in getting our Bourdon Trail Passport stamped. We were wrong! The first stop on the tour was the 'Brewery'. I wish... More

Nice facilities - Mike did a great job as tour guide. It was our first stop on our Bourbon Tour, so we learned a lot to add to our coming attractions. Their beer is good - especially the Bourbon Ale. Their spirits were nothing special. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

Thank you for the wonderful VIP tour. We really enjoyed the tasting. We came at the tail end of a day of tasting and your team adjusted on the fly telling us more unique details.

I have been to Kentucky before with friends and visited Woodford's distillery which had been a great tour but wanted to try something different on this trip with my husband. He has some difficulty walking so also thought this might be easier for him, and I was right! I also liked the fact that it was a smaller group and... More

I also liked the rye whiskey. I would recommend this place to any beer or liquor fans. Seven beers to taste and five liquor... More

My husband and I went here on a recent trip to Louisville on the recommendation of our friend and are SO pleased we did! With both beer and spirits making operations there was a lot to learn and try!

Unique experience where you can get a brewery tour and distillery tour in the same place... taste both.. and compare the process of the two. Good beers... I thought the coffee stout was very good.... and great spirits.
