Whiskey & War Stories - Horse Soldier Bourbon Event

EVENT DATE: Monday, October 2nd

EVENT TIME: Doors open 5:30 PM, Presentation 6:00 PM

LOCATION: Engrained Brewing Company



Days after 9/11, a group of 12 Green Berets rode into Afghanistan on horseback. The mission, completed by these Horse Soldiers, inspired a book (Horse Soldiers; by Doug Stanton), a movie (12 Strong) and a 9/11 monument.

Today, members of the Horse Soldier team have banded together to form American Freedom Distillery. The distillery offers award winning bourbon in bottles pressed with molds forged from steel from the Twin Towers.

On Monday, October 2nd, you have the opportunity to meet Mark Nutsch, one of the original 12 Horse Soldiers whose story inspired the 2018 film, 12 Strong. In the film Chris Hemsworth plays Captain Mitch Nelson, U.S. Army Special Forces Officer and ODA 595's commander, inspired by Mark Nutsch. Hear Mark's stories about war, bourbon and family while enjoying a taco bar from our neighbor Casa Real and a bourbon tasting with the three Horse Soldier Bourbons.

Come hear the incredible origins of this fantastic bourbon from one of the 12 Green Berets himself and take home a signed bottle of Horse Soldier Straight!

These bottles are beautiful and designed with symbolic meaning, from their broad shoulders to the hatchet and arrows, they are truly eye-catching.

Join us for this honorary event and take home your very own signed bottle of Horse Soldier. Click here for tickets.
