PB&G at the Four Seasons Walt Disney World Resort

It’s off to the races for the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 2, 2015 and Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort invites guests to break out their Derby hats and suit up in seersucker for a viewing party at PB&G from 12:00 noon to 8:00 pm.

Enjoy watching the races from the restaurant televisions and sip on one of the beverage specials offered to revelers throughout the day. PB&G will debut its special bourbon in partnership with Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, with the traditional Jessie’s Mint Julep for $8. Take a “Tour of Kentucky” with bourbon flights and sample the PB&G bourbon from Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, Bulleit and Woodford Reserve. For the beer fan, Kentucky Bourbon Brown Ales will be on tap for $4 and local Fort Lauderdale brewery Funky Buddha will feature the hard-to-find More Moro IPA for the occasion as well.
