Durango Brew Train

August 3 - 31, 2019

Event Description

What better way to experience spectacular fall colors! The Durango Brew Train has 3 dates in August, with two separate adventures offered.

On August 3rd and 10th, hop onboard a historic narrow gauge train at Rockwood Station bound for Cascade Canyon! Choose between an gondola or a closed coach. An optional brew van service will be available for people who do not wish to drive to Rockwood.

On August 31st, hop onboard a historic steam train in Durango bound for Cascade Canyon! This excursion is SOLD OUT.

Travel through the Animas Valley and on up and over the dramatic highline, hundreds of feet above the Animas River to Cascade Canyon. On board, knowledgeable local Durango craft brewers will introduce you to a light sampling of their fine ales and educate you about the process required for crafting each brew! 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 buffet 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. During the return trip to Rockwood or Durango, dessert and coffee will be served.
