All Aboard the Beer Tasting Train


Ever since reading The Boxcar Children series as a kid, I’ve had a fascination with trains. There’s something so peaceful about passing time as town and state lines become blurred outside your window.

If you are like me and you like trains and beer, then you’ll be interested in the collaboration between the Cape Cod Central Railroad, Independent Fermentations Brewing, seven of the state’s craft breweries – and one craft distillery! Hop along the Cape Cod Central Railroad for a three-hour journey from Buzzard’s Bay (and back). In addition to stopping at eight locations, guests will pause in North Falmouth to catch the sunset.

There will be brewers on board to educate passengers and answer any looming questions. In addition to 5 ounce beer servings, each brewery will offer locally-inspired snacks.

Beer Tasting Train, July 11, $64 per person, 21+. To purchase tickets and to view a full list of participating breweries, please visit Cape Cod Central Railroad’s website.
