You’ve never seen day drinking like this. Trains may not be the first thing you think about when searching for a good place to have a beer but that’s all about to change.
Riding a train probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you’re looking for vacation ideas unless you primarily vacation in the late 19th century. The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is betting it can convince you that’s a mistake.
A couple times each year (only once in 2018, unfortunately), the Durango Brew Train rides through the Colorado mountains, loaded with craft beer. The authentic 1920s steam locomotive starts in Durango on a trek through the scenic ridges and along the Animas River. You get to enjoy the sublime scenery while Colorado brewers walk through the cars to make sure you’re well lubricated.
“The breweries are very liberal with their pours, too,” Christian Robbins, marketing director for the train line, tells Thrillist, in case you’re somehow worried about not getting enough beer on a train loaded with brewers.
