Hipster In A Bottle – Bourbon Podcast #8

In Podcast by Patrick "Pops" Garrett and Bob BennettLeave a Comment

Episode 8 of the official Bourbon & Banter podcast – Hipster In A Bottle –  is now available for your listening pleasure.

In this episode we take a bit of time to discuss Bourbon & Banter's plans for 2021 including some thoughts on how we're going to reinvent bourbon reviews for the masses. Then it's on to Whiskey News where we explore the reality that very few people have any clue what they're drinking and bars that cheat their customers are assholes. And of course, another industry breaking update regarding the upcoming release of Millennial Bourbon - a bourbon for hipsters, made by hipsters.

While this episode's Craft Shoot takes us back to Kentucky for a little déjà vu, the Bourbon Bullshit segment goes off the rails as we try to figure out what they hell Terry Bradshaw was thinking when he decided to launch his new bourbon. As a bonus, we also take LG's Craft Ice Making refrigerator to task along with Sazerac's Autumn Collection release from their Last Drop Distiller's line of rare spirits.

The fifteen months Bob Bennett spent living in Lebanon, KY, as a child may have laid the groundwork for what would happen years later (something in the water…literally). Originally from Corning, NY, he grew up in a household where happy hour was celebrated every night. Surprisingly, Bennett didn’t start drinking until he was 23 years old. He quickly made up for lost time, gravitating to bourbon as his preferred libation immediately, and proudly filled the bar that was passed down from his father. In the years that followed, not only did he develop a deeper appreciation for bourbon, but began to cherish the opportunity to talk about the spirit he has grown to love. As the Artistic Director for Jazz St. Louis, Bennett has become the unofficial bourbon ambassador of jazz, spreading the gospel of good taste to musicians everywhere. It also helps endear him to the St. Louis community, which is needed, as bleeding Dodger Blue tends to rub those Cardinal fans the wrong way.
