Whiskey School at Monk's BBQ

Monk's BBQ

Catoctin Creek's Scott Harris will teach about How Whiskey Came to America:  Scotch and Irish Whisk(e)y

After the last SOLD-OUT session of whiskey school, you'll want to join Scott Harris, founder of Catoctin Creek, for a night of fun, barbecue, and whiskey at Monk's!  Scott will hold a discussion on the history of whiskey, and how it came to America, with examples of Scotch and Irish Whiskey.  You'll have the opportunity to taste several whiskeys, including Catoctin's own Roundstone Rye.  Additionally, we'll talk about how rum (yes, rum!), Bourbon and Canadian Rye fit into this history, and their place in modern whiskey production.

Whiskeys we will taste during the event:

1.  Glen Moray 16 year old (Speyside)
2.  Oban (West Highland Malt)
3.  Ardbeg 10 year old (Islay)
4.  Jameson 12 year old (Irish)
5.  Roundstone Rye Single Barrel (100% rye to finish the night)

This should prove to be a fun and local event, so come on out and join us!

The ContendersAbout the Artists: The Contenders

The legend Levon Helm said that if you give it good concentration, good energy, good heart, and good performance, the song will play you. If that’s true, then Jay Nash and Josh Day are well and truly played by the set of songs in their debut EP, “Meet The Contenders.” The collection breathes with musicality and grit in the tradition of heroes—The Band, Tom Petty, The Dead, Dylan. Thrumming and heady, with a steady heartbeat and a hint of honky-tonk, this EP speaks of wanderers and highways, lovers and losers, good times and missed chances,swimming pools and movie stars, all with a ferocity born of hard work and honed skill. Nash and Day have been players and poets for the better part of two decades; they have been making music, telling tales, drinking whiskey,and having fun touring together as The Contenders since 2012.
