Rails & Ales 2016
Rio Grande Scenic Railroad's most popular event sells out earlier each year. Don't miss your chance to experience Colorado's most unique brew fest.
Don't wait to buy tickets, this event sells out fast and the 9th annual Rails & Ales promises to be the best yet.
Rails & Ales combines some of our favorite things: classic rail equipment, rustic Rocky Mountain setting, live music, smoking hot BBQ and handcrafted brews from the region's best. There's just something so special about hopping on a train with friends to the wide open space we call Fir Station - our "little piece of Heaven" custom-built for the railroad meant to highlight how nature can so perfectly complement music.
The Rails & Ales Brewfest brings together brewers and their devoted fans, a hardy group that understands the simple truth of this event - you only get here by rail and it doesn't get any better than this.
