A bar for those willing to go far...

The Stubborn Bar is a private pop-up whiskey bar from Fierce Whiskers Distillery located in a place that’s intentionally hard to get to — the middle of Lady Bird Lake. It’s the only bar where you can try our first release, a two-year Texas Straight Rye. Because it’s not easy to properly age a premium whiskey in the unrelenting heat of Austin, Texas. It took years of hard work, an unwillingness to cut corners, and a lot of stubbornness. We believe the first pour should go to those who are just as determined.

The only way to get into this bar is to get your name on the list. Reservations are released randomly each week of the activation to those on the waiting list and offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. The entire experience is free.

In the meantime...

Don’t miss the official launch party of our Texas Straight Rye on June 10 at the distillery with performances by Neil Frances and THEBROSFRESH.
