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 an amber harvest while drinking in the scenery and leisurely pace of a train ride. Texas State Railroad’s Pints in the Pines departs at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday’s October 7 and 21. This inaugural event will include a variety of local ales complemented by zesty beer snacks during the outbound train journey. Frothy favorites 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. Texas State Railroad’s very own version of “Oktoberfest” will include a souvenir tasting glass for each participant and a barbecue lunch 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. Must be 21 years or older to participate. Pints in the Pines takes place on board the train as it travels between Rusk and Palestine, and back, in select cars. Event options include First Class, the luxurious Presidential Car or the privately-chartered Caboose.
