On Wednesday night, 65 members of the Yelp Elite Squad (YES!) braved the snow for a whiskey party at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. From educational distillery tours and delicious bites from Roaming Buffalo BBQ, to a seasonal craft cocktail menu and warm vibes, it surely was a night to remember.
Back in March, Yelp released its Top 50 Whiskey Bars in the U.S., to which Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey landed the #1 spot. Due to their utilization of Rocky Mountain ingredients for their signature single-malt whiskey and their cozy whiskey-themed lounge, it’s no wonder that Yelp reviewers across the country unanimously awarded Stranahan’s the top honor.
After guests checked in, they immediately made their way to the bar for a Stranahan’s seasonal cocktail. The Barrel Aged Old Fashioned and the Go Shawty It’s Sherbet Day! were two of the fan favorites throughout the night.
Roaming Buffalo BBQ, a Denver staple in the BBQ world, pulled out all the stops with an amazing array of delectable bites. Crowd pleasers were the Lamb Tamales, Andouille Sausage & Roasted Corn Grits, Deviled Bacon Eggs and Mini Pecan Pies. Talk about the perfect food offerings to soak up Rocky Mountain Whiskey!
No trip to Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey would be complete without a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility. Tours were led by Keith and Dave, two industry professionals with enough passion and humility to go around for miles. Their expertise regarding Stranahan’s unique distilling process kept guests engaged throughout both tours, making for one of the most in-depth distillery tours in the nation.
Yelp Colorado would like to thank the Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey bar and distillery team, including Marketing & Hospitality Supervisor, Sarah McLoughlin, for providing guests with a 5-star experience.
