Craft Beer Tasting on the Tuolumne River 2 Days


Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Chico, CA

Founded in 1979, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has been making beer for over 40 years and won the US Environmental Protection Agency’s “Green Business of the Year” award for 2010. Inspired by the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains, the beers are designed to be as bold, wild and unwavering as those storied granite peaks.  Enjoy a classic Pale Ale, seasonal Summerfest, or dare to down their Torpedo Extra IPA, described as “aggressive yet balanced,” much like our beloved Tuolumne!

The Wild & Scenic Tuolumne River may just be the ultimate whitewater rafting trip in California. Beginning near Yosemite National Park, it flows through an incredible wilderness canyon and offers eighteen miles of exciting, Class IV+ rapids and plenty of hiking, fishing and swimming opportunities. The Tuolumne River is considered by many to be the best whitewater trip in California which is why we have chosen it as one of our “Seven Whitewater Wonders” of the World. Tumbling creeks and glassy pools adorn the river corridor and its side canyons, creating the perfect outdoor experience for rafting, hiking, fishing and swimming.
