What better season offers the perfect reason to savor the Arizona outdoors than Autumn? The cooling temperatures inspire the riparian foliage to mellow, filling the Verde Canyon with gold, amber and scarlet.
The ripened bronzing of the wilderness is echoed by rich Arizona craft beers served during Verde Canyon Railroad’s ever-popular Ales on Rails event September 18 – October 31, 2018.
Ales on Rails: All Beers are Local Arizona Craft Beers
The opportunity to savor these frothy delights will start each day at 11:00 a.m. on the depot patio with a great selection of Arizona craft beers.
Ranging from light and summery Kolsch to high-octane lagers and IPAs, from coppery-red and Scotch ales to dark stouts and chocolate porters.
These Oktoberfest-style brews may have German roots but all are produced in Arizona breweries. The party continues on board where beers may be purchased during the Fall Colors Tour.
Enjoy this Sedona area beer tasting tour while riding through Verde Canyon. Running through the heart of this Canyon is the Verde River—the life giver to millions of beings—where nature still acts out its natural evolution throughout each and every season, giving birth to new life.
