While Simran chases Raj on the train in the movie DDLJ, beer aficionados can chase their love on this brew train in Colorado, USA before it leaves the station. The beer vacation on Durango Brew Train is where the passengers can spend their day chugging beers and soaking in the views of the Animas Valley.
You may have missed a few trains in your life but you will deeply regret it if you miss this one. Durango Brew Train in Colorado, a 20th-century revived steam engine locomotive, takes you on a two-hour journey through the wilderness offering fresh beer and good food. While the freshly brewed beer will give you the buzz, it is the astounding views on the journey that will leave you intoxicated.
Why Should You Take A Beer Vacation On Durango Brew Train?
The answer is really simple and we even have a four-point reasoning for the same.
A. It’s vintage. Who does not like traveling in an authentic locomotive from the 1920s? It is always fun! Ask Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory.
B. There’s beer. Colorado’s best brewers will walk through the cars pouring the finest beers you have ever tasted. And, they are generous with their pours too. BREW, Steamworks Brewing, Ska Brewing, and Carvers Brewing are some of the local ace brewers serving on the Durango Beer Train. If you are a beer connoisseur, this is an experience of a lifetime.
C. The views are sublime! Enjoy a picturesque ride through the Colorado Mountains offering you the jaw-dropping views of ridges and river. Before the train stops in the middle of the San Juan National Forest at Cascade Canyon, look forward to the dramatic highlight; gaping over a huge 500-ft cliff down on the Animas River from your window seat.
D. And, it only happens once (sometimes, twice) a year. The train journey is packed with full-on entertainment which includes good food, live music, and wilderness. Why miss it, then?
