If you’re looking for some delicious food to go along with the home-brewed beer at Country Boy Brewing, then look no further than their parking lot. A variety of food trucks stop there to feed the drunk masses, however our visit allowed us to taste delicious food from Fork in the Road. There you will find traditional fare with a twist and a good dose of butter. There’s nothing better than a hearty meal to go along with that Jalapeño Smoked Porter or Peanut Butter Stout. You just need to travel to Lexington, Kentucky.
Kentucky is Bourbon country. There are a ton of bourbon distilleries in the area. So much, in fact, that there are more bourbon barrels than there are people in the state. Some of the biggest names come from here. Why? Well it’s all thanks to the limestone water, hot summers and cold winters. The conditions are perfect for the creation of some of the best bourbon in the world. The Bourbon Trail will bring you to 7 different distilleries in the area, but there are a lot more. We were able to hit 6 of the 7 in two days. We could’ve made the 7 but we had no idea a new distillery had been added to the trail, so we didn’t get to schedule it in. Maybe next year.
I had a lot of people ask me why I was going down to Kentucky. In fact, I was starting to wonder that myself. Did I really want to go to a bunch of Bourbon distilleries in the course of two days. I had just learned that I didn’t get Columbus Day off so sadly we had to make the trip back on Sunday (a ten hour drive). I felt bad because I couldn’t drive so my friend, Jill, had to drive all the way down and back both days. That’s a lot of driving. For some reason, my travel never goes according to plan.
