The last six months have been an exciting time for Bourbon & Banter. Our Facebook community has grown significantly, and we were able to launch our website just a few weeks ago. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to our success. Your posts, photos and stories are what B&B is all about. I want to launch a new feature for the website starting today – The Bourbon & Banter Member Spotlight.
To kick things off, I’d like to introduce you to Steve Lewis. Steve has been an active voice in the community for quite a while. When he sent me the photos below, I just knew I had to ask him to be our first member in the spotlight. I hope you enjoy this new feature. Please share your feedback with us via the comments feature after the post.
- Name: Steve Lewis
- City: Kennesaw, GA
- Favorite Bourbons:
- Everyday – Buffalo Trace | 1792| Elmer T. Lee
- Top Shelf – George T. Stagg | Pappy Van Winkle | Blanton’s
- Least Favorite Bourbons: I’m sure I’ve had bad bourbon; I just don’t remember when.
- How I Drink My Bourbon: Neat–always. If it’s a high proof like GTS, WLW, or Bookers, I will add a dram of water.
- What is it about bourbon that you enjoy the most?: Since I learned that bourbon is best sipped and savored, and not as a “shot”, I’ve learned to relax and enjoy my bourbon. I enjoy the personality of the bourbons. There are times when I want a Blanton’s and times when Buffalo Trace is on my mind. I like it best, sitting in my chair, with my wife, watching one of our crime shows.
- How did you come to be a bourbon fan?: Literally, it’s in my genes. My daddy was a Jim Beam man. I can remember him fixing a hot toddy for me when I was a kid. Unfortunately, my father passed when I was a teenager and I never got to share a glass with him. Thirty-plus years later, my brother and I still enjoy a good glass while we chill out.
- What do you enjoy most about the Bourbon & Banter community?: I enjoy sharing information about what’s new and on the market, as well as sharing comments and thoughts about what I’m having–along with who and where.
