Last week I went to an exclusive tasting dinner organized by America's Best Racing (ABR). ABR is a platform designed to increase awareness of North America's best thoroughbred racing events. They even have a luxury "ABRV," a coach bus that travels around the country to major racing events including the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes. The tasting dinner included roundtrip transportation on the ABRV, which just so happens to be the same bus the University of Kentucky men's basketball team uses. I must say, the bus was pretty badass. I felt like I was in a boy band.

Why were we headed to Beverly? It's the site of Horse Thief Hollow Brewing. The name for the far South brewery comes from the history of the area. In the 1850s, Beverly was known as the "Horse Thief Hollow" because horses stolen from Missouri brought for selling in Chicago were hidden in the dense forest of the area. The brewery played host for our three course dinner which featured a variety of dishes paired with Horse Thief beers and spirits from Andersonville's KOVAL Distillery.
