The October 8 outdoor Muse concert will be just one of many complementary events that will comprise an all-expenses paid weekend trip to the Distillery. As explained in a statement received by Mashed, the trip includes transportation to and from the Distillery, lodging at the Hotel Distil, meals at the Distillery’s The Kitchen Table Restaurant, tours of the Distillery (including bourbon tastings, bourbon-and-food pairings, and cocktail-making classes), as well as opportunities to tour the old Kentucky home of the Jim Beam in Louisville.
But those who wish to enter will have their work cut out for them. It starts with clicking on this link and scrolling allllll the way down to the very bottom. You’ll know you’ve reached it when the black letters on a white background give way to white letters on a black background, as pictured above. There you’ll find an invitation to submit an anecdote from your own life to Jim Beam that captures the “communal spirit” of a live music show. “If you’ve ever gone to a show and met a new friend, sparked an unexpected love interest, or converted a face in the crowd to a drinking buddy over a glass of whisky, we want to hear about it,” prompts the bourbon maker.
Contest entrants must be U.S. residents over the age of 25. Entries will be judged by a panel of Rolling Stone magazine representatives, according to the contest rules.
