Because I am lazy, here is the description from the Cal Academy: What fun are bourbon and whiskey tastings without a mechanical bull and some honky tonk?

Plus, enjoy the acoustic stylings of Jeanie and Chuck's Country Roundup, and learn about the science of distilling from Nancy Fraley, Director of Research at the American Distilling Institute.
