Where the Locals Drink: The Urban Bourbon Trail

Do you like collecting stamps? Yeah, us neither...unless we’re getting stamps for drinking bourbon. And that’s exactly what you can do at Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail!

Stop by the Louisville Visitor’s Center to pick up your Bourbon Passport, or download the app and get electronic stamps as you progress. Either will lead you through the Urban Bourbon Trail - just pick six stops and collect a stamp at each to complete your bourbon journey. Bring your filled out passport to the Visitor’s Center and redeem it for a prize!

Enough talk...let’s get to the bourbon stops!
