Drew Estate Announces The Return of The Barn Smoker in 2022

February 19, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

Drew Estate’s Barn Smoker Program is returning in 2022 and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before! Announced during the Feb. 17 “Freestyle Live” broadcast on Drew Estate’s Facebook and YouTube pages, the 2022 Barn Smoker program will consist of these five epic and memorable events:


Florida Barn Smoker                                        Clermont, FL               May 13-15

Pennsylvania Barn Smoker                              Strasburg, PA               July 15-16

Connecticut Barn Smoker                                Ellington, CT               Aug. 12-14

Kentucky Barn Smoker                                    Hopkinsville, KY            Sept. 30-Oct. 1

“Barn Smoker Presents—Savage Feast”          Parker, TX                   Oct. 21-22

We’ve blended new elements into these “Greatest American Tobacco Experiences.” On the Friday night before every Barn Smoker, Drew Estate will host DE25 Exclusive Pre-Parties, where those lucky enough to attend will be the first to experience new Drew Estate cigar launches! The DE25 Exclusive Pre-Parties take the place of the original single-day DE25 event that we postponed last year due to Covid-19. These five new DE25 Exclusive Pre-Parties will allow us to share our milestone with more people in a more intimate setting to enjoy spirits and appetizers; savor succulent pork roasted from a heritage pig; dance to live music entertainment and beats spun by DJ Eli; meet Drew Estate’s Ambassadors and enjoy their special cigars, as well as experience Drew Estate’s newest cigars.

We’re also incorporating all-new swag, expanding the Florida and Connecticut Barn Smokers to two single-day events and introducing new brand activations. Additionally, the 2022 Barn Smoker Program will debut “Barn Smoker Presents—Savage Feast,” a blockbuster Medieval-style Barn Smoker extravaganza at the South Fork Ranch in Parker, Texas, on Saturday, Oct. 22. Tickets for “Barn Smoker Presents—Savage Feast” will also include entry to the DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party on Friday night, Oct. 21.

In addition to interactive, fun and informative farm tours, all Barn Smoker attendees will experience an immersive deep dive into a variety of unique sensory activations that will focus on Undercrown, Herrera Estelí, Pappy Van Winkle, Joya de Nicaragua, Tabak Especial and ACID; and for the first time ever, include sessions with Subculture Studios and the “Sticks & Sips” Tiki Bar. They’ll also chill with Drew Estate ambassadors, including company Founder and President, Jonathan Drew; Master Blender, Willy Herrera; and La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate Factory Spokesman, Pedro Gomez; along with their favorite Drew Estate sales force members.

“We love our extended Drew Estate family, and Barn Smoker 2022 will set a new standard in celebrating the art of premium leaf, our iconic brands, and honored company culture … together in true fellowship,” says Jonathan Drew, Drew Estate’s Found and President. “Barn Smoker is seriously evolving into a complete Drew Estate festival, unlike anything else in the world. The aspect I’m most excited about this year is that Barn Smoker attendees will be the first to see, taste and experience all new Drew Estate cigars. Our most loyal fans should be the first to try our new stuff, that’s how I see it anyway.”

Every Barn Smoker has four ticket tiers that range from $100 to $350 based on the swag and experience options guests choose. General Admission tickets enable consumers to attend one day of the Barn Smoker event and includes a packet of swag and 10 Drew Estate cigars. Those who purchase a VIP ticket will receive exclusive VIP swag along with 10 Drew Estate cigars. Guests who purchase the DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party tickets in addition to their General Admission or VIP Swag Barn Smoker tickets, will enjoy early entry to the Barn Smoker for a Tabak Especial breakfast and receive the DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party experience, swag and cigars, and they’ll be the first to experience the debut of new Drew Estate cigars.
