Jungle Jim's Whiskey Night: Prohibition Style

Join us for a swell night of jazz, cigars, and whiskey at our annual Whiskey Night: Prohibition Style! With more than 60 whiskeys and bourbons, you can tilt a few, discover new favorites, and have an all-around hotsy-totsy time!

Since we think they’re just the bee’s knees, we’re bringing back Cincinnati’s finest jazz group, The Dirty Shirleys, to serenade us throughout the evening! And, in addition to the wide variety of whiskeys that will be available for you to try, The Oscar Event Center’s Executive Chef will be crafting a variety of bourbon-themed delicacies for you to enjoy all night long!

We want to see all of you cats out here in your finest, so put on your glad rags and don your finest top hat or break out your sequined headband! We might even have prizes for the best-dressed gangsters and flappers! So get ready for the best night of the year, because it’s time for the 2019 Whiskey Night!

The Festival


It’s All About the Whiskey Your General Admission ticket comes with 8 samples and a bonus cocktail, access to master distillers who will happily answer any and all of your questions, and, of course, you’ll be treated to a fabulous array of delicacies crafted by The Oscar Event Center’s Executive Chef! One of the most unique features of Jungle Jim’s Whiskey Night are our Whiskey 101 classes. Throughout the evening, we open a “classroom” to a limited number of festival goers for discussions and conversations with some of the best and brightest from the world of whiskey (and other fine spirits).


Upgrade to VIP to Experience More Rarities  Limited, just like the whiskeys and bourbons you’ll be sampling, your VIP ticket offers you more time to sample, and more samples to try! As a VIP, you can enter the festival at 6:00 PM, an hour earlier than General Admission attendees, and you’ll get to try 10 rare or limited samples with a bonus cocktail! Plus, you’ll enjoy an incredible array of decadent food crafted just for you by The Oscar Event Center’s Executive Chef!

Guest Speakers

Beth Burrows Beth Burrows is the Kentucky Bourbon Ambassador for Beam Suntory. A New York Native, she grew up in the restaurant and education world. With a teacher for a Mother, a Chef for a step-father, and a childhood rooted in hospitality, she naturally developed a sophisticated palate and a passion for educating and leading others. Her passion for bourbon came many years later, while she was working behind the stick in Louisville, KY. It was there that she quickly found a love for bourbon education and cocktail mixology, developing bar programs and competing in cocktail competitions. Over the span of three years, Beth moved up the ranks of Down One Bourbon Bar – from server to General Manager, where she garnered respect and praise from both colleagues and customers. Her time in the restaurant world and constant involvement in the cocktail community prepared her for her current role where she utilizes her cultivated palate, broad bourbon education, and cocktail background to bring a new dimension to the Beam Ambassador position. When she is not spreading the good word of Jim Beam Bourbon, you can find her jamming to nineties music, crafting new cocktail recipes and attempting to uncover perfect bourbon and food pairings.

Peter “Whiskey Pete” Wagner Peter “Whiskey Pete” Wagner has been the Ambassador to Brown-Forman for over eight years, and a Certified Spirits Specialist for over 4. He is a graduate of the Ohio State University with close to 20 years of experience in the finest bars and restaurants throughout the Columbus area. In his earlier years, Peter worked at both 93Q and 88.3 WXUT, in Toledo, where he was part of two different radio shows. Additionally, Peter took part in an internship with the Walt Disney Corporation, where he worked closely with their culinary, hospitality and theme park executives. Peter’s current duties have him traveling throughout the state of Ohio lecturing to people on Brown-Forman’s Whiskeys and Tequilas.
