Drink Whiskey, Win Prizes: The Beale Street Whiskey Trail

Drink Whiskey, Win Prizes: The Beale Street Whiskey Trail

The weekend of June 5th will be a big one downtown—Saturday is the kickoff concert with PJ Morton for Get Loud, this summer’s totally free live music series in Handy Park. 

To celebrate, Beale Street and the Tennessee Whiskey Trail are teaming up to create the “Beale Street Whiskey Trail”. For that Saturday and Sunday only, nine different Beale Street bars will serve special $5 tasting cocktails made with Tennessee whiskey. Check in at minimum of four locations over the weekend, and you’ll be entered to win big prizes!

Here’s how it works: 

1. Sign up now on the Beale Street Whiskey Trail website. There’s NO APP TO DOWNLOAD, Horray! You can do it all from your phone’s browser and through texts. It’s super simple. Pre-registration is already open.

2. Go to Beale Street June 5th or 6th and order the $5 Tennessee whiskey taster cocktails at participating bars. 

3. Check-in on your phone with a code you’ll get after you order. Tip your bartender or server!

After you’ve hit four spots, you’re automatically entered to… 

4. Win Prizes! First prize is a two-night Memphis vacation/staycation at a downtown hotel, with tickets to Sun and Stax, plus dinner at B.B. King’s. Second prize is ten bottles (!!) of Tennessee Whiskey and Tennessee Whiskey Trail merch.

Pro tips: 

  • Make a weekend of it! Hit up Beale for happy hour on Friday for a drink or two, come back on Saturday for pre-PJ-Morton concert drinks.
  • Hydrate. 
  • Sunscreen.
  • Eat something! You’ll thank me in the morning. If you need some ideas, here are 8 places to eat on Beale Street.

Drinking not your thing? Just come for the music! The Get Loud concert series is Saturday June 5 and then every Thursday after that through August. Check out the lineup here.
