The Butter Run Saloon: A great track record
Located near Detroit, in a town of under 60,000 people, this saloon boasts 757 whiskies (and counting)—everything from Jack Daniel’s to Balvenie 30 year old. The website offers a convenient way to track the whiskies you’ve sampled and make a plan of attack for future visits. But what the heck is a butter run? The name comes from owner Dave Harden’s family ritual of the men going out to pick up butter—which, of course, required grabbing a beer after accomplishing the task.
