Usually, a garage sale is a great place to get some cheap flatware or a vintage dress. It’s not often you can pick up an exclusive bottle of Pinot noir-finished bourbon.
Watershed Distillery will host a garage sale at its Chesapeake Avenue location Saturday, Oct. 17. The sale will offer up limited run bottles not available in stores, as well as barrel parts, Watershed merch, and other “rare finds” from its warehouse.
“Garage sales are always sort of a treasure hunt; you never know what you will find,” Claire Spurlock, marketing manager of Watershed Distillery, said in a press release. “We want the Garage Sale event to be an opportunity for our supporters and craft spirits fans to uncover something special.”

The sale will take place on Chesapeake Avenue, which Watershed has closed off for the event. In addition to rare bottles and odds and ends from the warehouse, garage sale shoppers will be able to reserve whole barrels for purchase that will be available after they are emptied later this year. A portion of all proceeds from the sale will go to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective.
The full list of exclusive bottles on offer can be found on the Watershed website and includes spirits that were made in collaboration with local eateries such as Hotel Leveque and The Barn, which were never available in liquor stores.
Ramble Coffee and Lion Cub’s Cookies will offer refreshments at the event, including a limited-release bourbon pecan cookie from Lion Cub’s that uses Watershed bourbon.
The garage sale will be the only way to get the cookies in person. They can be ordered online for delivery beginning Oct. 14, although they will only be available for Columbus delivery this weekend and delivery to select suburbs early next week.
The garage sale will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 17. All sales are first-come, first-served, and strict masking and social distancing rules will be enforced.
