High West Park City (High West)

The James Beard Foundation selects High West to host two Friends of James Beard Benefit events to support their Open for Good campaign. On Friday, April 9, High West will partner with Louisville-based Copper & Kings, an American brandy distillery influenced by whiskey and music for “A Taste of Kentucky in the West,” a dinner of crafted cocktails, straight pours and inventive cuisine. On Saturday, April 9, High West will host “The Art of Craft,” a special evening featuring finely crafted food, exclusive spirits from the vault, and handcrafted tableside cocktails. The evening will be led by High West Executive Chef Michael Showers, Master Distiller Brendan Coyle, and Beverage Manager Holly Booth. 

“It’s an absolute honor to be chosen to host two Friends of James Beard Benefit events by the James Beard Foundation, and we are excited to host our friends at Copper & Kings Distillery Louisville,” said High West Executive Chef Michael Showers. “We look forward to sharing our world-class hospitality with our guests to help support the independent restaurant industry across the country.”

Funds raised for these Friends of James Beard Benefit events will directly support the James Beard Foundation’s Open for Good program. The campaign aims to help independent restaurants survive the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, rebuild better, and thrive for the long term. Through critical resources, advocacy, and emergency and investment grants, Open for Good aims to help restaurants come back stronger, more equitable, more sustainable, and more resilient.
