The Filson just received a menu from the Old house restaurant from the 1960s. It is interesting to look at the Bourbon Selection (85 cents per drink) that included a lot of known products of today, but also local brands such as Brown-Kaiser. In the back they had a special menu with products like Old Astor Made 1890, bottled 1916 at 26 years old, Four Roses Antique, Old Grand Dad 118 and Weller Anitique 110. Gary, here is some proof of an older, pre-prohibition Bourbon.
