Beam Brands are Hitting the Rails for the Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour

Bourbon Legends Boxcar

Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Knob Creek, and Basil Hayden’s are hitting the rails this fall and coming to a train station near you with the Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour.

Just as bourbon traveled by boxcar across the US in its early days, four of Beam Suntory’s most well-loved bourbons have teamed up for the Bourbon Legends Boxcar Tour to offer bourbon fans the opportunity to explore the distilleries, people, and stories behind today’s bourbon boom from their hometowns.

The Boxcar Tour leaves the station from Louisville later this month. It will make stops in four major markets: Denver, Houston, Cleveland, and New York City. While wandering through four distinct event spaces at each stop, guests will be able to meet some of the legendary distillers and families behind the brands, enjoy tastings designed to up their “Bourbon IQ,” and try craft cocktails and Kentucky BBQ in a multi-sensory experience for both beginners and experts.

Fans interested in attending the event must RSVP 24 hours in advance here or at Here’s the full schedule:
