Eight Row Flint

"Say Goodbye to Our Pappy" event at Eight Row Flint -- Every year at this time, the beverage industry loses its mind, stressing over Pappy Van Winkle bourbon allocations since each bar and restaurant is only allocated a certain number of bottles, if any. So for one day and one day only, Eight Row Flint is giving it away at cost. Prices will range from $4.47 for 1.5-ounce of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year to $28.50 for 1.5-ounce of Pappy 23. Festivities take place on Monday, December 26 at 5:30pm. Everyone that walks in the door will be given a wrist band and a number, based on arrival time. Eight Row Flint guarantees 100 people will receive one 1.5-ounce tasting.
