Jenner launched her 818 tequila brand, named after her area code in Los Angeles County, in early 2021 and was in Tuscaloosa to promote it during brand takeovers at each stop.

The stops drew large crowds of fans and a sizeable police escort that moved with Jenner from stop to stop.

When one local motorist stopped to ask why so many people were outside Innisfree trying to catch a glimpse inside, one young fan summed it up well enough with her answer, "It's Kendall Jenner! She's a Kardashian!"
