7th Annual Rails & Ales: Self-Guided Global Pandemic Edition

Anytime between Saturday, September 12, - Sunday, October 18, 2020

While things will certainly look different this year, we encourage you to make this “self-guided” event your own. Mask up and hop brewery to brewery. Take some beer to go from some of your favorite taprooms and host your own socially distanced tasting party. Play it slow and visit a different taproom each week for the full duration of the event. Or ditch the “credit coin”, slide on your comfy new shirt and keep binging Netflix! No matter what path you choose, be safe and make sure to check with any taprooms you plan to visit in advance so that you’re up-to-date on their current policies and regulations.

In an effort to help guide you , included with your t-shirt and $5 “credit coin” is an overview that includes a list of featured taprooms along the Green Line, any specials being offered and/or pertinent info you should know, some contests to add to the fun, and some other surprises! Gather up your family and friends and decide how you want to “crawl”…
