This Colorado Brew Train Is One Of The Most Scenic Ways To See The West

If your idea of a perfect day is supping craft beer while enjoying the beauty of nature, this Colorado train ride may just be heaven.

The Durango Brew Train brings passengers aboard a vintage 1920s steam train for an afternoon of sampling craft beer, learning from real brewers, and appreciating the stunning Colorado wilderness.

Local brewers will pass out samples of delicious beers that range from bright IPAs to rich stouts.

While enjoying those beers, you’ll wind your way hundreds of feet above the Animus River in the Sa Juan Mountains, glimpse snowy mountain peaks, and enjoy panoramic views of farmland and canyon.

Finally, passengers will alight at Cascade Canyon in the San Juan National Forest for a two-hour party packed with live music, Bavarian food, and plenty of beer.

You can grab first class seats in a glass dome car for $180, standard seats for $116, or gondola seat that are angled towards the view for $116.

The Durango Brew Train normally ferries passengers along the Animus River twice a year. However, due to mud slides, only one trip will be happening this year.
