Beer-lovers unite! Journey to the most prolific beer-producing region in America to meet experts who have perfected the art of turning water from pristine Rocky Mountain snowmelt into delicious beer. Visit several breweries for an insider’s look at their beer-making craft and, of course, tastings of their acclaimed brews. Then let the same clear water used in Colorado’s world-class beers carry you down the Wild and Scenic Cache La Poudre River on a whitewater rafting adventure. Field trips along the way include a local organic farm, the Fort Collins Old Town Historic District and the state-of-the-art, interactive Fort Collins Museum of Discovery.


• At New Belgium Brewing, learn how America’s seventh-largest brewery produces more than two dozen beers while watching out for Mother Nature.
• The same pure, refreshing water used in local beers propels your raft down the Wild and Scenic Cache La Poudre River while you learn about local ecology.
• See the inspiration for Disneyland’s Main Street USA when you explore Old Town Fort Collins.

Activity Notes

Walk two miles, multiple flights of stairs, standing up to two hours in breweries and on field trips.
