Well, if there’s any better reason to drink today than losing your job, I’m not sure what it is. Never mind … I know there are plenty of worse things that could be happening right now — and are happening — so I should be thankful to have my health, my friends, my family and my bourbon.
But yes, as of Aug. 7, 2019, Insider Louisville will be no more. It was a good five-year run for me and I’ve had the opportunity to immerse myself in the culture beat — including bourbon coverage — and write about what I deemed important. Or rather, what I believe my readers thought would be interesting.
It was great not having anyone standing behind my back telling me what to write and how to write it. I basically spent the last five years meeting awesome artists, performers, writers, brewers, distillers, marketers, bartenders — you name it: If they had an interesting story to share, I helped them share it.
So now it’s on to bigger and better things, hopefully. What that involves I have no idea at the moment. But I do know that I plan to ramp up this website and continue writing about bourbon, whiskey, beer, gin, rum and, yes, even White Claw. I hope to make my Tasteless Tastings more of a regular feature and bring you all the latest news as far as releases, distilleries, distillers, etc. go.
For anyone who would like to keep in touch and/or send me some news about all things bourbon, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, of course, you can also find me giving tours with Bourbon City Cruisers on any given night or weekend. Speaking of which … you should get six of your friends together and book a tour! We offer Distillery Tours during the afternoons and Cocktail Cruises in the evening.
