Drew Estate’s Barn Smoker event series is back for 2019 with five events.
It’s the same five places—Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana and Pennsylvania—as last year. The one notable change is that the company will offer a VIP package, which will give ticketholders three “rare Drew Estate cigars,” as well as premium swag like a torch lighter, cutter and rocks glass, as well as an exclusive dinner hosted by Jonathan Drew the night before the Barn Smoker events.
Currently, VIP packages are offered for the Florida and Pennsylvania Barn Smokers, priced at $195 compared to the regular ticket price of $100.
Dates for the 2019 Barn Smokers are as follows:
- Florida Barn Smoker (Clermont, Fl.) — May 18, 2019
- Pennsylvania Barn Smoker (Strasburg, Pa.) — July 20, 2019
- Connecticut Barn Smoker (South Windsor, Conn.) — Aug. 10, 2019
- Kentucky Barn Smoker (Hopkinsville, Ky.) — Oct. 5, 2019
- Louisiana Barn Smoker (Convent, La.) — Oct. 26, 2019
“The Barn Smoker Program is constantly evolving. From adding new locations, to transforming the event into a furious festival of brands, it’s going to be a sight to behold. We’re talking about a whole new level of Mega-ness,” said Jonathan Drew, the company’s co-founder, in a press release. “For those who join us at the VIP dinner the night before, you will get to enjoy rare smokes and an intimate night with Fabien, Willy, Pedro, Henry, Frankie Dranks and myself, plus a whole crew of amped-up Drewpees.”
