All the Fun Photos from CityBeat’s HopScotch Event at Newport’s New Riff Distilling


CityBeat's HopScotch — our annual celebration of non-bourbon whiskey — returned to Newport's New Riff on Oct. 24.

The tasting event highlighted Scotch, Irish whiskey and American whiskey for the whiskey-curious and longtime liquor enthusiasts alike to come together for an evening of booze-infused revelry. Attendees were able to sample over 50 Scotch and whiskey varieties from distilleries at home and abroad, ranging from Bardstown, Kentucky’s Preservation Distillery to Ireland’s Slane Whiskey and more paired with light bites from some of Cincinnati’s most-loved restaurants, including Nicholson’s and Lydia’s on Ludlow.
