About the event
The Brush, Bottle and Barrel of the Bluegrass is Legal Aid Society's signature event supporting our mission to pursue justice for people in poverty. Each year, the legal community comes together to celebrate civil legal aid, enjoy great food, and one-of-a-kind spirits!
The Brown-Forman Spirit of Justice Award
Legal Aid Society annually recognizes an exceptional community member who has dedicate their life's work to pursuing justice. Past recipients include Ned and Nina Bonnie, R. James Straus, the Honorable Boyce F. Martin, Jr., and last year's recipient, Stephen Reily.
The Brush, Bottle and Barrel of the Bluegrass is your opportunity to sample some of Kentucky's finest wines, bourbons and beers. Our guests enjoy traditional drinks and new takes on old classics. In the past, we've hosted Bluegrass Brewing Company, Alltech Lexington Brewing Company, Goodwood Brewing Company, Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, Barton 1792, Heaven Hill, Wight-Meyer, and Elk Creek.
