Louisville and bourbon country on the cheap

funklight | Jan 27, 2009 01:03 PM

A coupe of friends and I are planning a week long trip to Louisville, KY this March. None of us have ever been there before, but we all share a great affinity for bourbon, and we'd like to check out a few of the many distilleries in the area. Aside from the big establishments (Jim Beam, Maker's Mark, Buffalo Trace, etc), are there any small (dare I say artisanal?) distilleries that we could visit for a tour and maybe a taste?

Also, any suggestions for good food in Louisville? We will most likely be on a pretty tight budget so anything too upscale is probably out of our league, but we want to experience some local cuisine (street food is a plus).

One more: how about local bluegrass clubs?

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank You!
