Makers Barrelhead


Forty-six bourbon fans graced Fado Pub and Kitchen in Dublin for the public debut of the Fado Gives Back PLF Bourbon ( 

The aptly named Monday Night Bourbon Blitz was held on December 4th as the assembled crew enjoyed tasting various Maker's Mark bourbons, dined on some gourmet tailgate grub from the Fado kitchen and took in the Bengals-Jags game.

Fado GM Cason Peter and Maker's Mark rep Arianna Denenzio spoke on a variety of Maker's samples provided to the crowd as well as the PLF Bourbon. 

The tasty tailgate themed menu provided by Fado chefs Christian Neff and Madison Cullman included:

  • Nacho Bar

  • Nashville Hot Chicken

  • Homemade Cheesy Tots

  • Seasoned Chex Mix Spread

  • Homemade Coleslaw

Plenty of Maker's Mark raffle items were provided by Arianna as prizes and kudos to Jeff Keller for winning the Bottle #001 Silent Auction raffle. 

A great thank you to the following for their involvement in the making the MNBB a great success and memorable event:
