Local Brew Trail Celebrates Local Breweries and Encourages Craft Beer Lovers to Explore the Variety of Craft Beers in the Susquehanna River Valley
LEWISBURG, Pa. — The River Rat Brew Trail is inviting the public to take a tasting tour with its 2018 Summer Passport.
Passport holders will receive a free collectible glass at each of the 9 participating breweries from June 1 to Aug. 31. Participants who have their passports stamped at every location and submit their completed passport will receive a River Rat hooded sweatshirt created only for this promotion.
Participants do not need to make a purchase at the breweries to have their passports stamped, but they are encouraged to sample amazing beers paired with great snacks appetizers or meals while on their journey.
This year’s participating breweries are Rock God Brewing Co., Old Forge Brewing Co., Three Beards Brewing at Spyglass Ridge, Rusty Rail Brewing Co., Selin’s Grove Brewing Co., Covered Bridge Brewhaus, Marzoni’s Brick Oven & Brewery, Civil War Cider Co., and Eclipse Craft Brewing Co. All 9 fall within an approximately 13-mile radius, though the passport can be completed over several trips throughout the summer. Eclipse Craft Brewing Co. was scheduled to be open in June of 2018, but their timeline has been delayed slightly. If the brewery is unable to open in time for the end of the passport promotion, the River Rat Brew Trail will honor the passport completion without the Eclipse Craft Brewing Co. stamp.
Passports cost $35 and can only be purchased at www.riverratbrewtrail.com beginning May 1. Only 500 passports will be printed. Completed passports can be mailed to or dropped off at the Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureau or the Susquehanna River Valley Visitors Bureau along with contact information and shirt size to receive the free hooded sweatshirt.
