The 2013 Whiskey Rebellion Dinner

The 5th annual Whiskey Rebellion Dinner was held on Friday July 12th at 6 pm at the George Washington Hotel.    The 2013 dinner sold out in record time with an impressive amount of business sponsors and returning patrons filling the main floor and balcony.  The signature beverage was Jim Beam's Ghost, a white whiskery distilled for one year!

The guest speaker was Fred Noe, a returning favorite from Jim Beam!  Fred Noe is the 7th in the line of bourbon distillers to take on the family business and grew up in the middle of the bourbon industry like his father and grandfathers and is proud of his lineage and the opportunity to "share the product my ancestors made."

Thank you to our Dinner Sponsors:  Jim Beam, The George Washington Hotel, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, The Washington County Chamber, First Federal, Ameron Water, State Representative Brandon Neuman, All Ways World Wide Moving, Coca-Cola and the Washington County Bar Association.



The 2012 Whiskey Rebellion Dinner was held on Friday July 27th.

The Whiskey Rebellion Dinner is a reception and dinner benefiting the David Bradford House Museum, home of one of the leaders of the Whiskey Rebellion. The Whiskey Festival History and Art Show moved into the George Washington Hotel Friday evening for an exclusive preview for Dinner guests.

The theme for the 2012 Whiskey Rebellion Dinner was "The Great Whiskey Debate: Scotch vs. Bourbon", playing off the debates in this Presidential election year. We are looking forward to a "spirited" debate between Simon Brooking, the kilted Master Ambassador of Laphroaig and the Ardmore Single Malt Scotch Whiskies and Natalie Banks, one of the nation's top experts and educators for Jim Beam, America’s largest bourbon distiller. This theme played well in this election year.

In four short years, we have grown from a Whiskey Rebellion Dinner that attracted 100 people to a three day Festival that attracted 8,000 people to downtown Washington, PA to enjoy history, whiskey and music.

Once again the Whiskey Rebellion Dinner was a highlight of the festival selling out at 300 people. In the end, we had to turn seating requests away.

We appreciate the support that Jim Beam and Southern Wine and Spirits has given the David Bradford House. Other sponsorships included NSA Security, Buchanon, Ingersoll & Rooney, Observer Reporter Publishing Co., Washington & Jefferson College, Chesapeake Energy, Columbia Gas, Washington Hospital, Meadows Racetrack & Casino, WBDA, Peacock Keller, Ameron Beverage Distribution LLC, Always Moving, Coca-Cola, Rice Energy, The Three Rivers Auction Company, Washington County Bar Association, The Uram Family, Councilman Joe Manning, Allegheny Crane and KP Builders.
