San Francisco Magazine - July 2013

The next time you cruise Class III rapids, leave the Bud Light and soggy chips behind. O.A.R.S. rafting company's new Epicurian Adventures on the Tuolumne and American rivers cook up a four-course meal—such as skirt steak and rosemary Yukon potatoes—with a rotating cast of brewmasters and vintners to keep you hydrated. Catch 21st Ammendment's Shaun O'Sullivan over the Fourth of July weekend, pairing his hoppy brews with Cypress Grove Chevre cheeses on the Tuolumne River shores for three days. Or opt for the Fork, Cork and Paddle evening series, with local wineries like Lava Cap at O.A.R.S.' new luxe River Park Adventure Campground on the South Fork American. Not bad for river fare.
