Day One Recap: Fingers and Bones at Indie Alehouse
Day one of the inaugural Toronto Bourbon Week was a saucy success, with Indie Alehouse hosting a full house of hungry and thirsty patrons serving ribs, wings, bourbon and beer at our opening event entitled Fingers and Bones.
Tickets to the sold-out event went fast, and Indie didn’t disappoint with their delicious lineup of food and drink to kick off Toronto Bourbon Week.
The menu for the evening included a choice of “bones” – smoked ribs with a sweet and spicy bourbon BBQ sauce and braised ribs with a bourbon and hoisin BBQ sauce, plus smoked chicken wings in either a spicy or sweet bourbon sauce. All of these were paired with sides which included fried polenta, salad, potato salad and fries.
The “bones” were delicious, as were the “fingers”. Diners were able to choose from a great lineup of bourbons which included Bakers, Bookers, Blantans, Basil Hayden, Elijah Craig, Knob Creek, Knob Creek Reserve, Bulleit, 1792, Four Roses and Woodford Reserve. Along with the bourbon, diners received a selection of Indie’s house-brewed beers, three of which (Breakfast Porter, Double Team and Sweep the Leg) were aged in bourbon barrels.
Fingers and Bones was a fantastic kick-off to Toronto Bourbon Week, with a scrumptious menu of food and drink and the great atmosphere and hospitality that one can always expect to find at Indie Alehouse. We hope that everyone who made it out enjoyed themselves, and we’ll see you at the Amsterdam Brewhouse for day two!
