Blue Pit is mostly known for its amazing selection of barbecue and its outdoor seating in the warmer months. But lovers of “John Barleycorn” know that Blue Pit also serves up a selection of 40-plus bourbons. If you’re a newbie, the bartenders will guide you through the world of America’s spirit. Prices range from $4 for the lower end Ancient Age to $30 a glass for the Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece and one of six bottles in Maryland of the rare Colonel E. H. Taylor Cured Oak. Most of its bourbons aren’t for “shots” so sit back, sip, and enjoy.
