    All breweries will be showcasing their finest hand crafted beers and have their own unique atmosphere that will energize you for the next leg of the route. Music, entertainment, fresh air, beer education, brewery tours, beer games and of drinking!

    Icon Beer The Finish Line!!! And Transportation?

    This is in fact a GREAT question. Our recommendation for the day is to have a friend or family member drop you off at the start and pick you up at the finish and OR bus, uber, taxi, or walk to your closest and safest destination. You could even have a combination of all of them! Carpool! Thanks so much for being responsible.
