Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years.

There is no better time than March Madness to look into the early years of Coaches Adolph Rupp and Bear Bryant at the University of Kentucky and their ongoing battle with the NCAA over the commercialization of college athletics.

Bring your friends and join the conversation with sports historian Chad Carlson, Ph.D., author of an article on this subject in the Register of the Kentucky Historical Society.

We’ll examine the successes and scandals that defined the years from 1946 to 1955 when these two coaching powerhouses defied the NCAA – sometimes successfully and sometimes with consequences – as they worked to build up two of the nation’s winningest teams.

Carlson, an assistant professor of kinesiology and head coach of the men’s junior varsity basketball team at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, also wrote Making March Madness: The Early Years of the NCAA, NIT, and College Basketball Championship Tournaments, 1922-1951 (University of Arkansas Press, 2017).

6:00 – 7:30 pm – History of Bourbon II • Bourbon University, at CastlePost, 230 Pisgah Pike, Versailles

From the dark days of the 1970s and 80s, bourbon has risen to unprecedented heights today.

A few stats:
• More than 1,000,000 tourist stops at Kentucky bourbon distilleries the last two years,
• Since the turn of the century Kentucky Bourbon production has skyrocketed more than 315 percent to 1,886,821 barrels in 2016, and
• More than $1.1 billion in capital projects has been completed or is planned and underway in the past five years and the next five years, including new distilleries and aging warehouses to bottling facilities and tourism centers.

🥃 With over 30 active and planned distilleries in Kentucky, the question is: how did bourbon get so big?

In this class, we’ll look at the premiumization of bourbon; the introduction of single barrel bottlings, small batch offerings and limited releases; bourbon tourism; plus craft and experimental products and ‘near bourbons.’ We’ll trace a line from Elmer T. Lee and Booker Noe through new concepts like second maturation and unusual grains to the plethora of options available to consumers today.

(statistics courtesy the Kentucky Distillers’ Association)

🥃 Why is bourbon back? Come taste and learn! 🥃

This class is the third in our year-long “Bourbon University” with a new theme offered each month. No need to attend them all – mix and match as you like!

$35 per person, class includes guided bourbon flight and light food. Dinner reservations at Castle Farm Restaurant available for after the class.
