The 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby served as the perfect backdrop for this Derby Day show from Southern Arizona’s expression of Churchill Downs, Three Canyon Beer & Wine Garden!

David Arnce, Jonathan Hebert, Matt Russell, Kyle Blessinger & Cory Jochems

Our celebrity co-host was David Arnce, principal of The Shop Beer Co., who got us current on his line-up of suds and what’s making brews news in his Tempe taproom. We also sat down with Cory Jochems, certified sommelier with Quench Fine Wines, who revealed his personal picks for wines that go well with the great outdoors (like Derby parties!). Jonathan Hebert of Mr. Cookman’s New Orleans BBQ truck also rolled in to the conversation with his take on southern cuisine. And his ribs? Righteous! We also got caught up with Kyle Blessinger, GM of Three Canyon, who talked about his desert oasis for beer and wine lovers and how his “third of an acre of outdoor drinking space” has become so popular.
