Frazier History Museum kicks off new exhibit by pouring 'Bourbon' on Main Street

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A whole lot of bourbon was spilled on Main Street in downtown Louisville early Thursday.

Don't worry, it was only water. 

This morning's event kicked off the Frazier History Museum's newest exhibit, "Spirits of Bluegrass: Prohibition and Kentucky."

During the Prohibition era bourbon barrels were emptied in the streets by police. 

"There is no greater story for us to tell than the story of Kentucky bourbon," said Penny Peavler, president and CEO of the Frazier History Museum. "This is a story that is about farmers, it's about the corn crops, it's about the entrepreneurial spirit of the people." 

The Frazier History museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday Noon to 5.
