5th Annual Whiskey Throwdown and Doughnut Showdown

McNichols Building

5/20/2017 3:00 PM
Held every year on National Whiskey Day, May 20 for 2017, this once a year event is a can't-miss, incredible experience with more whiskey and doughnuts than you could possibly sample in three days, much less one afternoon. Local artists are also painting live, a DJ provides the tunes, and tons of door prizes are given away!

This is a tasting unlike anything you have experienced before, purposely focused on the local craft scene with a few old favorites you'll quickly recognize. The Colorado distilling scene is on fire, with more than 65 distilleries currently active in the state, many of whom will be on site. There is not a more affordable or accessible way to sample so many incredibly fine spirits.

Get ready to enjoy the most sugar-focused event of the year, nothing compares to the sheer amount of goodness that is about to enter your mouth. Local doughnuts vendors from all over the front range of Colorado pull all nighters to make enough doughnuts for this event. You will not be disappointed!

Didn't think this event could get any more awesome? Think again.

Whiskey + Doughnuts as always been about more than just great food and drink; it's about a creative concept taken to an ever-increasing level, resulting in something so much greater than the sum of its origins. Whiskey + Doughnuts is a sampling event on the surface, and a performance at its core. We bring together creators, craft distillers, artisanal bakers and deep fryers for one afternoon of absolute intestinal debauchery. If you haven't been, you have to come see for yourself.

Still not convinced? Well, how about free stuff? Listen to the DJ for giveaways; you never know what we might hand out! Skis? yep. Fancy sunglasses? yep. Doughnuts for life? YEP, ten times over! Yes, we have given away more than 30 aluminum anodized, personalized and laser engraved cards good for unlimited lifetime supply of your daily doughnuts. Calories don't count when they come from doughnuts.
