BB Dining Cruises

Craft Beer & BBQ Cruise

Fridays June 3rd thru September 30th
Boarding at 6:30pm
Sailing from 7:30pm - 10pm

BB Riverboats and some of our wonderful Craft Breweries have teamed up for a wonderful evening! Come aboard one of our beautiful riverboats for an included tasting of some of the participating brewery's premium brands. A member of the brewery will be directing the tasting and talking about the history of the brewery and the principles of their beer. Once you have figured out which is your favorite, you can enjoy it with a scrumptious buffet featuring BBQ Ribs, Marinated Chicken and Pulled Pork. Music will be provided by a local area band for your entertainment.
