Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour Bound for Cleveland


The Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour is like a politician’s whistle-stop tour but in place of empty promises there is delicious American whiskey. The unique bourbon pop-up experience is making stops in just four U.S. cities before the end of the year: Denver, Houston, Cleveland and New York City.

Four well-known brands will be represented: Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Knob Creek and Basil Hayden’s. At each stop, distillers, bourbon experts, and even family members behind the iconic brands will lead bourbon tastings, interact with guests and present a multi-sensory experience designed to raise a person’s “Bourbon IQ.” Visitors will enjoy bourbon tastings, bourbon cocktails, Kentucky barbecue, live music and more.

The event, which rolls into town on October 12-13, is free and open to anyone over the age of 21. But space is limited and bourbon fans interested in attending must RSVP at least 24 hours in advance at to obtain an access code and secure a spot. The precise location (near downtown) will be revealed upon confirmation of your reservation.
