In addition, whiskey expert Megan Breier will be discussing the unique whiskey selections for the evening. Tasting tickets include samples of four bourbons and start at just $30 in advance on warrenstation.com. Come out for a night of inspiration and bourbon tasting at Warren Station on Saturday, April 8th.
Amy Purdy grew up with a passion for snowboarding and dreamed of traveling the world…and despite obstacles that perhaps should have stopped her dead in her tracks that passion carried her not only to the upper echelons of athletics but onto the dance floor of Hollywood and well, well beyond. This young woman has defied the odds throughout her life and overcome a near death-experience to accomplish some extraordinary things.
She is a NY Times best-selling author whose story is published around the world. She has toured with none other than Oprah Winfrey. She has been featured in a Superbowl commercial, driven the pace car at the Daytona 500, won a medal at the Paralympics and last summer was the featured dancer of the Opening Ceremony of the Rio Paralympic Games in a performance that was literally seen by hundreds of millions of people around the world.
There is simply never a dull moment for Amy Purdy. Don’t miss her extraordinary presentation.
Born and bred in Kentucky, Megan has spent the last two years putting her Bluegrass state savvy to good use as the Bourbon Ambassador for Jim Beam in the home state. After training at the Jim Beam Distillery and working alongside Master Distiller Fred Noe, Megan is excited to share her Southern charm with the West Coast! Prior to her ambassadorship, Megan was immersed in the hospitality industry operating the award winning Garage Bar in Louisville, KY and coordinating major events for 21c Hotels.
Megan is known for creating unique and approachable events centering on bourbon education. Megan most recently earned her Certified Spirits Specialist accreditation and is working towards becoming a Certified Spirits Educator with the Society of Wine Educators.
