Block, Beer & Bourbon returns Jan. 11 to Raise Funds for Public Radio

The Friends of KLRE/KUAR will host the fourth annual Block, Beer & Bourbon (and Burgundy!) event Saturday, Jan. 11, to celebrate public radio and to raise funds for UA Little Rock Public Radio’s stations, KUAR FM 89.1 and KLRE Classical 90.5. 

Block, Beer & Bourbon will take place from 6-9:30 pm at the Albert Pike Masonic Center, 712 Scott St. in downtown Little Rock. Block, Beer & Bourbon showcases jazz artist Rodney Block, who will perform with the Rodney Block Collective, as well as a curated selection of beers, bourbons, and Burgandy wine from O’Looney’s Wine and Liquor and food from The Pantry. 

This year’s event features a pre-party VIP reception from 6-7 p.m. and a tour of the historic Albert Pike Masonic Center building, and exclusive tastes of extra rare bourbons, beer, and wines. Attendees will also get commemorative tasting glasses to keep.

Proceeds from Block, Beer & Bourbon support programming and operations of the two listener-supported public radio stations licensed to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Nearly 70 percent of KUAR and KLRE’s funding comes from listeners and businesses. 

General admission tickets are $75 and VIP Tickets are $150. Tables and sponsorships are also available. For more information, contact Vanessa McKuin at 501-569-8485 or Purchase tickets or tables at
