Colonel Harland Sanders, the founder of KFC, was indeed involved in a shooting incident on May 7, 1931. The confrontation occurred in North Corbin, Kentucky, where Sanders operated a Shell gas station. The dispute was with Matt Stewart, who ran a competing Standard Oil gas station and repeatedly painted over Sanders’ advertising sign. When Sanders, accompanied by two Shell employees, confronted Stewart, a gunfight ensued. Stewart shot and killed one of Sanders’ companions, Robert Gibson. In self-defense, Sanders fired back, wounding Stewart.

Stewart survived but was sentenced to 18 years in prison for murder, while Sanders was not charged as he acted in self-defense​ 

Slow and Steady

Keep in mind that a beer festival lasts for several hours. Don’t be hasty, take your time, enjoy. To really take your time, get a weekend pass. That way you won’t miss out on any great beer.
