Named after the Town Branch of the Elkhorn river, which flows alongside it, this new lounge and taproom allows Barrel House Distilling Co. to showcase inventive cocktails made from their products: Pure Blue Vodka, Devil John Moonshine, Kentucky Oak Rum and RockCastle Bourbon. A selection of other spirits and a beer and wine menu is also available. The building is the original barreling house of the James E. Pepper Distillery, founded in 1780, and the decor reflects that rustic and historic theme, with natural wood accents and copper bar tops and ceilings. 

We are please to announce that we are now serving food! Whether you're looking for something light like a charcuterie board, something more substantial like a homemade bowl of Elkhorn Burgoo or even something sweet like our rotating pie - we have something to satisfy your appetite. Check back soon for a full menu!

And don't forget about us when you're planning your next event! You can also rent out the Elkhorn as a space for your birthday, corporate event, holiday party, wedding reception and more! Contact Jeff at for more information!
