The Twisted Tail will host the 3rd Annual Whiskey Bonanza in late Sept.

Southern-inspired restaurant The Twisted Tail will host the Third Annual Whiskey Bonanza on Sept. 22, in celebration of National Bourbon Heritage Month (bourbon is considered America's native spirit).

The ticketed event runs from 7-10 p.m. During that time attendees will have a chance to sample more than 60 varieties of whiskey. There's also an option to join a VIP session before the festival begins -- when rare and hard-to-find whiskeys will be served.

“It’s great to have that collection of whiskeys in one place,” George Reilly, owner of The Twisted Tail, stated in a press release. “It’s not too often that people are able to have that comparison side by side.”

Plus, there will be competition for bartenders to create a winning whiskey cocktail. Attendees will sample and vote on their favorite to determine the winner.

Chewy's Food Truck, which serves fare like food and BLTs, will be on-site from 8-10 p.m. for hungry Bonanza-goers. A southern pig roast is also in the works.
