Boilermakers & Beer Can Chicken

Great whiskey, tasty food at Tried and True


This Saturday marks the official first day of fall. And that officially means you can no longer get away with drinking fruity tropical drinks with umbrellas.

People will talk.

So you need a new place to throw back two of man's greatest libations: whiskey and beer. Alone, or together in a Bartender's Boilermaker of the Day.

At the brand-new venture from superstar restaurateur Nick Badovinus, Tried and True, you'll find one of the city's most well-curated whiskey programs in a rustic, laid-back setting.

Featuring mostly Kentucky straight bourbons and other solid whiskeys, the list is broken down into regions and styles. Ranging from five bucks to $50 a pour, there's something for every taste and budget. An impressive beer list provides further treats for your tongue.

Country ham, whiskey pate, and crackling pork rinds
are all designated bourbon-friendly snacks. Or there's always those beer can chicken tacos.

You know, just like Jack Daniels would've made.
