The Paristown Barrel Roll


Here Comes Paristown!

Not familiar to you yet? No problem. You may not know that PARISTOWN will be the site of the second Kentucky Center for the Arts to the tune of $12 million dollars. That LOUISVILLE STONEWARE, a staple of Paristown since 1940 is spending $6 million to re-brand itself as The Stoneware Art Factory. That the state of Kentucky and Louisville Metro Government have commited some $2.2 million in improvements to the area.

Other venues are expected, such as Number 15, the first food hall in Kentucky. It is budgeted at $6.5 million and should start building this autumn and opening next October.

The idea is this – Celebrate and introduce you to Paristown the same way our favorite libations are introduced to us – Barrels! If it comes in a barrel, come out to the Paristown Barrel Roll!

“In partnership with HB Productions, we are thrilled to host ‘The Barrel Roll’ – “a festival that is as unique and authentic as the historic Village of Paristown,” said Steve Smith, Managing Partner of Paristown.  “Louisvillians can expect to create many great memories at a variety of festivals, concerts and events in this revitalized cultural arts and entertainment district for many years to come.”

Trevor Cravens, HB Productions states, “Purveyors of beer, wines and spirits have given us so many wonderful creations to taste alone, or as a cocktail component, or a barrel aged beverage. We have great appreciation for all of these ideas brought to life, but we also like to imagine how these things come together.  Why do bourbon barrels produce great wines? What do reposado tequilas have to do with beer?”  Example: Taste a Spirit Neat, then a beer aged in the spirits barrel, then a mini cocktail made with the spirit!



WHAT:         A Tasting & Pairing Event Integrating ingredients, processes, passion of the Spirits Distillers, Wine Makers, Brewers including party food and live music.
