BOURBON TAKES FLIGHT AT LOW BAR

When the Prohibition era-inspired Low Bar opened last fall in Traverse City, it replicated the same innovative spirit that had already been applied to its upstairs brother bar, 7 Monks Taproom.

Riffing off a common winery and brewery practice, owners Matt Cozzens and Jim Smolak debuted Low Bar’s new bourbon flights program, procuring varietals like the legendarily rare Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve.

“It’s hard enough to find a bottle; this is one of the only places I can think of where you can try a pour,” said bartender Jessie Deiss of the highly sought-after bourbon.

Pick any three brands off Low Bar’s bourbon, rye and Scotch list to create your own flight, containing three, .75 ounce pours for 50 percent off the listed menu price.

The basement level bar even has its own in-house bourbon, the Low Bar Single Barrel Journeyman Featherbone created exclusively for the bar by Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Mich.

Another incentive for bourbon fans: A bottle of Low Bar’s house spirit comes included free with a locker rental, where for $450 per year frequent customers can store wine and liquor bottles on-site for future visits.

Locker members also receive an engraved rocks glass, discounts on wine and spirits, x and complimentary mixers and invitations to members only events . For more information, visit lowbartc.com.
