Jim Beam Distillery Opens Fred's Smokehouse

CLERMONT, Ky., Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beam Inc. (NYSE: BEAM), a leading global premium spirits company, recently celebrated the opening of Fred's Smokehouse on the grounds of its flagship distillery in Clermont, Ky.  Named after seventh generation master distiller and great-grandson of Jim Beam, Fred Noe, Fred's Smokehouse embodies the same heritage of the historic Beam family smokehouse built by Jim Beam himself and still located in Bardstown, Ky., while offering a modern, bourbon-inspired twist to traditional Kentucky fare.  Inspired by the bold, rich flavor of some of Beam's best-selling whiskies, the menu includes selections such as Devil's Cut™ Pulled Pork BBQ on a Brioche Bun, Aunt Mimi's mouthwatering bourbon baked beans and a signature homemade chocolate bourbon pie with Graeter's Jim Beam® Bourbon ice cream.

"What an honor," said Noe. "Not only does the distillery's first cafe bear my name, but Fred's Smokehouse truly embodies my family's heritage. It's a place where our friends can pull up a chair, enjoy some bourbon favorites and be a part of our family."

Adjacent to the Jim Beam American Stillhouse, the bourbon-inspired cafe is a casual respite for guests looking for one more way to enjoy the world's No. 1 selling bourbon as they soak in the distillery history.  The red-barn building, which was originally built on the distillery grounds in 2005, was used to house Jim Beam's antique fire truck until the distillery restored and reopened it as a counter-service cafe overlooking the rolling foothills of Kentucky and the historic Jim Beam Distillery. Callahan's of Louisville caters the restaurant and its menu, made mostly of Kentucky products and featuring select recipes from Fred's personal memoir Beam, Straight Up (Wiley; September 2012).  Menu prices range from $1.49 to $8.99
