Pints in the Pines
Oct 07, 2017 - Oct 21, 2017
What could be better than sampling Texas-brewed beers aboard a historic train as it travels the Piney Woods of the Lone Star State? Savor the rich flavors of harvest season while enjoying the scenery and leisurely pace of a train ride with Texas State Railroad’s Pints in the Pines. Ranging from light, summery Kolsch and wheat-rich Hefeweizen to high-octane lagers and IPAs, from coppery-red Scotch ales to dark stouts and chocolate porters, these craft beers may have German roots but all are produced in Texas breweries.
Departing at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday’s October 7th and 21st, Pints in the Pines takes place on board the train as it travels between Rusk and Palestine and back. Texas State Railroad’s very own version of “Oktoberfest” will include a souvenir tasting glass for each participant and a barbecue dinner during the stopover in Palestine. The return excursion to Rusk allows ample time for all craft beer lovers to savor a full serving of their favorite brew, comparing notes and sharing stories with friends and loved ones. Everyone must be 21 years or older to participate.
