Bourbon, Beer, & Barbecue!

March 2nd at Valiant Vineyards Winery & Distillery
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

There will be tables set up for tasting the Bourbon and Rye Whiskeys from Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota, North Dakota, Indiana, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota, Idaho, Canada, and Japan. Names you know and some you do not know! Taste craft Beers from Fernson, Ben’s, and Remedy, with a few rums and wines. Check-in for the event is from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm.

When you arrive, you will be given your RESERVED TICKET at the door, which entitles you to the tastings, barbecue, and entertainment. You will be given a wristband and a whiskey-tasting glass. Present your ticket to the bartender, and you will receive a mystery Bourbon cocktail created by Eldon Nygaard using Clay Turner Small Batch Straight Bourbon Whiskey. A QR code will be at the bar to give you the recipe for the “mystery cocktail.”

Tasting and music begin at 7:30 pm and continue until 10:00 pm.

The Barbecue Buffet will begin at 7:30 pm and continue until 9:00 pm.

Live music by the incredible Collin Donley

Collin Donley’s brand of country has emerged and grown like prairie fire since releasing his debut EP through SMC Records in summer of 2023. A multifaceted performer, he has quickly garnered opening slots for Black Hawk, Tim Montana, Jared Niemen, and Dylan Scott. With his first-rate work ethic, he has been pounding the pavement throughout the Midwest, from Montana to Iowa, and he’s built a reputation on his red hot band, gritty and soulful vocals, and a mischievous persona that engages his audiences to holler and misbehave at every show.


Guests can buy either a ticket for tastings, which includes all of the above, for $75.00 (they will be given a wristband, and their ticket will entitle them to the special cocktail at the bar) or you can buy a ticket for just Music and Barbecue Buffet for $35.00 (no drinks included).

All TICKETS must be reserved and purchased in advance of the event. Call 605-624-4500 or email to make your reservation for Bourbon, Beer, and Barbecue.
