Beer on the Rails

Wine trains across the State have been a big draw for years, but beer drinkers can now get on board the tasting train. On March 18, Niles Canyon Railway will host Beer on the Rails. Guests will enjoy a two-hour ride while tasting beer from local breweries and enjoying a polish sausage sandwich complete with potato salad and coleslaw.

According to Donna Alexander, Sunol station agent, ÒWe have been doing our Wine Tasting Specials for about 15 years. We noticed that beer was becoming a big draw at events, so our commissary department decided to try a beer train.Ó The RailwayÕs first Octoberfest Beer Train ran in 2015 and was very successful.

Participating breweries this year are Schubros, Strike, and Das Brew. Representatives from the different breweries are happy to answer any questions about their fine imbibables. Passengers are free to walk around and talk to them all. Guests also get to enjoy the live music of Razz.
