The Whiskey Rebellion Dinner
The 2012 Whiskey Rebellion Dinner was held on Friday July
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
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.
We look forward
to a bigger and better event in 2013.
The 2013 Whiskey Rebellion Dinner will be
held on Friday July 12th.
