How to see all of St. Paul’s breweries in one fell swoop

On Saturday, May 28, GetKnit Events is hosting the ultimate St. Paul brewery crawl.

The Brews & Buses: St. Paul Brewery Bus Crawl will start at 11am at Union Depot and last until 6pm, and use more than 20 buses to deliver hundreds of beer lovers right to the door of any and all of the 11 breweries within St. Paul’s city limits.

Each participant will receive two tokens good for a pint of beer at any participating brewery, an event T-shirt (which doubles as a voucher for special discounts at the breweries), and an event passport that includes maps and information to guide them through the city and individual breweries.

After getting their swag at Union Depot, brewers embark on a self-guided “choose your own adventure” tour, riding the bus circuit to whichever brewery their heart desires. Every stop will offer a specialty beer on tap, activities, and discounts on food, brews, and merchandise throughout the day.

“Each brewery offers not only a variety of unique beers, they also have their own unique atmosphere and vibe,” GetKnit’s Nick Blake said in a press release. “[…] It’s a great way for people to not only taste the beer in its freshest form, but also to experience the nuances of each taproom, meet some of the brewers, and see where their beer is being made.”

Last year’s bus crawl attracted over 1,200 craft beer drinkers and sold out, so get your tickets now. Tickets went on sale today (Tuesday, March 22) at 12pm, and will be available for $45 until April 29.

All Aboard the “Beer Train”

Visit Castle Danger on the North Shore Scenic Railroad

North Shore Scenic Railroad

Back in the early 1900s the Northern Pacific Railroad would deliver barley, hops, and grains to the A. Fitger Brewery in Duluth, MN. Now, that railroad is used to bring nature and beer lovers together on a trip up the North Shore.

Rides on the North Shore Scenic Railroad will be on Saturdays, staring June 28th and ending on September 13th. They will board in Duluth and travel along side Lake Superior all the way up to Two Harbors, where there will be an included tour of the Castle Danger Brewery, new taproom, and their new beer garden.

Castle Danger, Minnesota is a small community nestled between Two Harbors and Beaver Bay on Lake Superior that is home to Castle Haven and Castle Danger Brewery, both owned and operated by Clint and Jamie MacFarlane. Castle Haven is a family resort built by Jamie’s grandfather in 1933 and has been turned into a resort-brewery welcoming families, beer lovers, and lovers of the North Shore year round.

Saturday trips up the Shore will provide passengers with a tour of Castle Danger Brewery, samples of their three beers on tap, a cold pint of beer, and a lunch from Vanilla Bean Cafe and Bakery. To see the itinerary and dates, view The Growler Events Calendar and to reserve your trip for just $47 per person, call 800-423-1273 or visit DuluthTrains.com.
