The B-Line [B Is For Bourbon]

Find Your Sipping Point in Northern Kentucky.

The B-Line passport
Visit bourbon bars, restaurants and distilleries on The B-Line.

Six is your new lucky number.

Sure, once upon a time you thought it was 21, when you’d finally be of legal age to drink alcohol, hang out at bars with friends, order that bourbon-drizzled dish without getting the side-eye from your parents. But now that you can do all that, you’ve discovered a detail overlooked in youth: It all costs money.

The B-Line can get you doing a happy dance. Do it and you get free bourbon swag.

That’s right: Free!

Collect just six stamps in the free passport and then place an order with The B-Line’s online shop. Choose a snazzy T-shirt, hat, coaster, glass, oval car magnet, or even temporary tattoos. When your goodie box arrives, it feels part souvenir, part prize.

The B-Line adds a new twist to Kentucky bourbon country as it showcases four distilleries plus five cool bourbon-centric bars and five snazzy restaurants in Downtown Covington and the surrounding hills of Northern Kentucky.

The B-Line makes it easy to plan a trip whether you come for a day, weekend or longer: Hit up the participating stops for a fun, flexible itinerary. Stick close to the city or take a day trip to Maysville. Buzz to each stop during one visit or use The B-Line as an excuse to keep coming back. Focus solely on bourbon or dip into rye whiskey, too. The choice is yours. Best of all, it’s not possible to make a mistake unless you miss out on The B-Line altogether.
