Since you're in Colorado, you can also rest assured that the lineup of brewers, though largely local to Durango, is a ridiculous list of ace breweries. BREW, Steamworks Brewing, Ska Brewing, Animas Brewing, and Carvers Brewing have been the regulars since they're based right in Durango. (Though, BREW is now closed.) In 2018, the line has additionally invited Four Peaks Brewing (Tempe, Arizona) and Left Hand Brewing (Longmont, Colorado) to join the trek. The full lineup for 2019 has yet to be announced, but you can rest assured there will be quality beer on the train.
The fall trips will take place on August 31 and September 28, with three ticketing options, including standard, deluxe, and first-class fares. The summer rides will only have one pricing tier and with treks taking places on June 15, 22, and 29; July 6, 13, 20, and 27; and August 3 and 10. Move quickly, though. Last year's rides sold out fast. It's easy to understand why. Riding a train loaded beer through the mountains should probably make an appearance on your bucket list.
