Cheers to Sacramento’s impressive railroad legacy and long brew history, too!
Celebrate the beginning of autumn in rail-related style with the California State Railroad Museum Foundation during a one-night-only “Ales on the Rails” brew sampling event on Friday evening, October 2, 2015.
Amid the historic backdrop of the California State Railroad Museum and while surrounded by remarkable vintage full-size cars and locomotives, this special fundraising event will highlight some of the area’s most exciting restaurants and breweries, and will include an indoor/outdoor tasting experience, entertaining live music by Hot City, a silent auction and more.
“Ales on the Rails” ticket holders will enjoy sampling scrumptious appetizers provided by a number of leading local restaurants and catering companies such as Capital City Catering, Courtyard D’ORO, Crisp Catering, Fat’s Family of Restaurants, Howe It’s Done Catering and The Melting Pot.
As a centerpiece to the event, brew samples will be provided by nearly 20 outstanding breweries that include the following: Amador Brewing Company, Carneros Brewing Company, Device Brewing Company, Gordon Biersch, Heretic Brewing Company, Hoppy Brewing Company, Knee Deep Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Mraz Brewing Company, New Glory Craft Brewery, New Helvetia Brewing Co., Rubicon Brewing Company, Six Rivers Brewery, St. Killian Importing Co., Track 7 Brewing Co., Wildcard Brewing, WildCide Cider and Yolo Brewing Company.
To help keep the beers cold and refreshing, a much needed supply of ice will also be generously provided by Arctic Glacier Inc.
Regular “Ales on the Rails” admission tickets cost $50 per adult and include beer and appetizer samplings, a commemorative glass and access to live music. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $65 each that also include entry to VIP tasting cars, exclusive beer and food samples, and a VIP swag bag. In addition, designated driver admission is $25 per person and includes all general admission perks except for the brew sampling. All guests must be 21 years or older and a photo ID must be shown when picking up tickets at Will Call.
Proceeds from “Ales on the Rails” benefit the California State Railroad Museum Foundation whose mission is to raise awareness and generate revenue to support the prized and world-class railroad destinations that include the California State Railroad Museum, Railtown 1897 in Jamestown and the future Railroad Technology Museum.
