(2019 Itinerary coming soon)

Overview:  Hop onboard an authentic 1920's steam locomotive that will pull a narrow gauge train through the Animas Valley and on up over the dramatic highline, hundreds of feet above the Animas River.  On board, knowledgeable local craft brewers will introduce you to a light sampling of their fine ales and educate you about the process required for crafting each brew! Breweries represented include Brew, Steamworks, Ska, Animas Brewing Company, and Carvers Brewing.  In addition, guest brewers will be joining this train as well!  Guest brewers for Sept. 29 will be Four Peaks Brewing and Left Hand Brewing (from Longmont, CO).

Once at the Cascade Canyon Wye, deep in the wilderness of the San Juan National Forest, you'll have two hours to taste more offerings from all of the breweries, listen to excellent live music by local bands and have your palate satiated with an exceptional  luncheon provided by one of Durango's top catering companies!

Each brewery will tell their own story about their history and unique brewing process and will keep you engaged and wanting to know more!  And of course, you will have unsurpassed photo opportunities and a chance to stroll along the river and over the Cascade Canyon footbridge.
