In honor of The Whiskey Shambles‘ win at the Northeast Ohio Blues Association (NEOBA) Challenge, which qualifies them to compete at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January 2015, the band has worked with Cincinnati’s Rivertown Brewing Company to create “Shambling Southward - Dubble Barrel Blues,” a Belgian Dubbel aged with brandy-infused wood chips.
