Take an experiential journey on the Eastern Railway of the Milwaukee Road and enjoy beer, rails, and the forests and foothills of Mt. Rainier June 3-4, July 2, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
Rails to Ales features various craft breweries using Pacific Northwest hops and across Washington state. You’ll be treated onboard to a light sampling which may include porters, stouts, IPAs, Hefeweizens, sour ales and witbiers.
Arriving at the Railroad & Logging Museum, full samplings from breweries will be set up, where you can learn how each beer is made. Live music entertainment and hors d’oeuvres round out this 3-hour event!
Located in the small town of Elbe, a heritage railroad south of Mount Rainier National Park offers passengers a chance to enjoy steam train rides through the forest and across the glacial fed Upper Nisqually River to a museum located in Mineral, Washington.
Museum exhibits offer a chance to explore a comprehensive collection of steam logging locomotives and discover the stories behind the pioneers of railroad logging camps in the early to mid 1900’s.
Excursions and museum visits are scheduled May through October.
