Fun and Games 
On the Ridgeline Craft Beverage Trail


In a place known for an extraordinarily broad array of outdoor recreation choices, there is no better way to wind down after your adventures than relaxing with friends and family on the comfortable patios, decks and landscapes found at our partner locations. Whether situated in one of our vibrant downtowns, along scenic riverbanks or framed by the gorgeous views of mountain peaks and rolling farmlands, you will want to see these perfect post-activity recovery spots for yourself. Several include live music, full menus, food trucks and other events. At each location, you’ll enjoy warm smiles and welcoming interactions with staffers and fellow patrons.


The Passport Game

Recently, Gaston County Travel and Tourism added a gaming aspect to the trail. By signing up for a digital passport on a mobile phone and simply visiting the businesses along the trail, users earn prize credits. This opportunity is open to local residents and visitors alike. Pass-holders checking in at six of the ten locations over the course of the year are rewarded with a custom Ridgeline Craft Beverage Trail baseball cap, produced and shipped on demand. Prizes are available while supplies last.


From east to west, here are the businesses comprising our trail; all produce beverages on location––the one qualifier needed to be listed on the Ridgeline Craft Beverage Trail:
