Craft Beer Tasting on the River

Why does beer taste so good after a day of whitewater rafting? That’s a deep question…or not. In any case, we think you’ll agree that after an active day of adventure, sipping an ice cold microbrew next to a rushing river is about as good as it gets.

OARS Craft Beer Tasting trips are the beer lovers’ alternative to our regular departures. After each action-packed day on the water, kick back in camp with friends, maybe try your hand at a round of Bottle Bash and crack open a few cold ones from our longtime partners at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Payette Brewing or 21st Amendment Brewery. 

In addition to a nightly selection of craft-brewed lagers and ales provided by some of the best brewers in the West, enjoy the elevated catered camping experience you can expect on every OARS adventure. Cheers to that!
