Knob Creek Rye and Jim Beam Rye are from the same distiller but are marketed differently, according to George Reilly, owner of The Twisted Tail, a whiskey-oriented bar in Society Hill.

At the 2019 American Whiskey Convention on Friday, April 5, more than 250 American whiskey and bourbon brands will be poured. 

This year, the event will be at the Penn Museum, which is filled with art and artifacts from all over the world, including Egypt, Greece and the Middle East.
