    - FOR MEN WHO ENJOY BOURBON
    The Bourbon Brotherhood is a monthly social gathering of men who enjoy bourbon and camaraderie. Is this politically correct? Probably not.

    For more information: BourbonBrotherhood.com Bruce C. (502) 569-4117

    We have some amazing events planned for 2016. Here is a brief tasting of what's in store for the next few months:

    Apr 27: Distilled Spirits Epicenter.

    This unique Louisville micro distillery is known for such programs as Moonshine University. We will enjoy a truly unique bourbon experience, tasting spirits individually distilled from the grains that make up bourbon: corn, wheat, rye and malted barley. We'll drink some bourbon too, of course.

    Join us at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter on April 27th for a unique experience where you will have the rare opportunity to taste spirits distilled from the individual grains that make up bourbon: Corn, wheat, rye and malted barley. Then we'll taste some bourbon so you can pick out the individual grain flavors, and see how they combine to create a balanced bourbon flavor profile.

    The tasting will be led by some of the Epicenter's top industry experts, who regularly teach classes and act as advisors in every facet in the art of alcohol production.

    The Epicenter is an international distilling center located in downtown Louisville. They have something for everyone with a passion for the time-honored craft in both the science and art side of distilling. From Moonshine University, where visitors learn how to build, open, and run their own distilleries, to their fully-equipped Grease Monkey Distillery, which when not in use for classes, is available to develop mash bills, create prototype batches, experiment with processing, or for full run productions.

    Ticket includes a tour of the micro distillery, the spirits tasting and a delicious Chinese buffet.

    A cash bar will be available as well, with bourbon drinks starting at $5.50. Amazing door prizes will be provided as always.


    May 25, 5:30 to 7:30. Whiskey & Warbirds II. At the Vintage Warbirds Hangar, Bowman Field

    Warbirds Hangar
    2800 Moran Ave.
    Louisville, KY 40205

    Event Details:

    In honor of Memorial Day week, we will be drinking bourbon at the Vintage Warbirds Hangar at Bowman Field.

    This is going to be a very fun event, sponsored by Joe Clay of Liberty Mutual Insurance.

    Our featured bourbon will be Old Forester! Old Forester was the first bottled bourbon. The Old Forester Mint Julep is the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby and Churchill Downs. They are also investing $35 million to build a new Old Forester distillery and visitors center at Whiskey Row on Main St., Louisville, scheduled to open in 2017.

    Old Forester will be providing a tasting of their newly released Whiskey Row series of bourbons which includes their historic 1870 Original Batch and the 1897 Bottled in Bond editions.

    We will also have a bar offering Old Forester neat, on the rocks or in a variety of cocktails crafted by an expert mixologist.

    More details are in the works, including food.

    There will be some great door prizes too! The Brotherhood always has fun, but this is one event you won't want to miss!


    June 22, 5:30 to 7:30. Oxmoor Country Club. A tasting of Calumet, Lexington and Bird Dog bourbons.

    Oxmoor Country Club
    9000 Limehouse Lane
    Louisville, KY 40220


    There is a legendary Thoroughbred farm in Lexington known as Calumet, which has produced some of the greatest race horses in history, including eight Kentucky Derby and two Triple Crown winners.

    Join us at the Oxmoor Country Club in Louisville for a bourbon tasting of products from the Western Spirits Beverage Company including Calumet, Lexington and Bird Dog.

    We will have our own private room and bar with bourbons in the $5-7 price range (including Woodford, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden, Jefferson's Reserve and Maker's Mark).

    Those who wish to enjoy a cigar may do so, just outside on the Veranda overlooking the golf course. Admission price includes the tasting and delicious food. Amazing door prizes will be provided as always.

    - Wine has been around for centuries, and there are some health benefits to drinking a glass! Moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL.

    And a glass of wine won’t add to your waist line. According to Delish.com, a five ounce glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free.

    So...Raise your glass and celebrate the day!

    - Successors often find themselves in the shadow of their parents, making it difficult to establish credibility in the family business and tap into their own strengths. The stress of emulating a parent begins to clash with who they are and who they want to be as a leader. In groundbreaking research, Andrew Keyt interviewed more than 25 successors of family business legends including Massimo Ferragamo, Bill Wrigley Jr., Christie Hefner, and John Tyson to find out how they overcame the challenges successors commonly face.

    What will I learn?
    How to step out of the shadows of your predecessor
    How to win over those still loyal to their former leader
    How to build your own credibility, separate from your parents
    How to take the reins and be the effective leader your business needs
    How to honor the past while charting a “way forward”

    - Synergy Trade Group: Property Solutions Louisville

    The ability of a group to outperform even its best individual member. That is the concept behind our SYNERGY trade groups; instead of networking for ourselves individually, the team networks on each of its member’s behalf. The purpose of SYNERGY is to build trusted, lasting business relationships, grow professionally, and establish a referral network.

    Groups meet; take time to let each member explain who they are, their business and the products their business offers. During meetings you get a chance to know each other much better and build permanent relationships with each other that will lead to strong referrals. The SMACC Synergy Trade Groups are up and running, these groups are full of Chamber members that are getting to know wall about one another and how they can refer business.

    Currently we have two active groups, but we encourage any member who is passionate about this program or programs like it to think of new groups and get involved today. Our groups right now are Real Estate and Senior Services.

    If you are not signed up for a group, or are interested in getting one started please call Glenn Knight with the Chamber at 502-899-2523 or email glennk@stmatthewschamber.com.
