• 2018 Craft Beverage Tour

  • While Paso Robles is well known for it's lush hills of rolling vineyards and enchanting tastings rooms there is a wonderful new experience growing rapidly in what was once just wine country. No longer just a place to get a great meal paired with a local glass of world class wine, Paso Robles is now home to a growing craft beer and distillery movement. Join us while we visit just a small sampling of this up-and-coming movement!

    Our trip begins in downtown Paso Robles at Santa Maria Brewing Co. where we will enjoy breakfast burritos, samplings of what's on tap and an education on the differences in brews. We will then load up on a 40 passenger luxury bus provided by SLO Safe Ride. The bus boasts leather seats, your own private usb port and large flat screens.

    Next stop... Azeo Distillery...to taste their vodka made entirely from apples! Learn what the word azeotrope means and witness their distillation process.

    Do you know how botanicals are infused into a neutral spirit to make gin? Our visit to Calwise Spirits Co. will show us how that happens. While there we will enjoy lunch and tastings with an opportunity to purchase one of their signature cocktails.

    And what better way to learn how to use all these great spirits than a mixing class with Yes Cocktail Co! Impress your friends with your new-found mixology skills.

    No craft beverage tour would be complete without a visit to Firestone Walker Brewing Company. Firestone began their rich history in Paso Robles in 2001 and since has claimed numerous fans throughout the "805".   At Firestone you will get a guided 45 minute tour of the whole Firestone facility. Your tasting experience will be one of a kind as you get to taste both before and during your guided tour of the brewery.

    This is our fourth Craft Beverage Tour and it has become an annual favorite with our members, many of which will be joining us again this year. Don't wait too long to reserve your spot today!
