The light-bodied beer features a fresh, clean and subtle hop aroma, delicate malt sweetness and a crisp finish that delivers the ultimate refreshment. For more information, visit www.BudLight.com.

Jack Daniel’s Experience: The “Taste of Tennessee” invites visitors to come out and tour the nation’s oldest registered distillery from outside the Jack Daniel’s Hollow. The Jack Daniel’s Experience, a mobile museum, is bringing a little of the much-loved distillery from Lynchburg to anywhere in the USA. Visitors will learn who Mr. Jack Daniel was and how he ended up with the best selling whiskey in the world. They’ll get to see (and smell) whiskey dripping slowly through charcoal and the new oak barrels used in maturing Tennessee’s finest whiskey. Once you tour the Experience and spend some time with the folks from Jack, it’ll make you want to plan a visit to Lynchburg, Tennessee to see how and where they’ve made Jack Daniel’s since 1866. The Experience is open to all folks, 21 years old and up, for tours free of charge. Games and giveaways will also be part of the entertainment at various times throughout the festival.
