Pints in the Pines
Coming back in May of 2019

Pints in the Pines:

Piney Woods Beer-Tasting Tours

What could be better than sampling Texas-brewed beers aboard a historic train as it travels the Piney Woods of the Lone Star State?  Savor the rich flavors of an amber harvest while drinking in the scenery and leisurely pace of a train ride.

This optional experience is available during our Starlight Rides.

This event will include a variety of local ales complemented by zesty beer snacks during the outbound train journey.  Frothy favorites ranging from light, summery Kolsch and wheat-rich Hefeweizen to high-octane lagers and IPAs, from coppery-red Scotch ales to dark stouts and chocolate porters, these craft beers may have German roots but all are produced in Texas breweries.

Texas State Railroad’s very own version of “Oktoberfest” will include a souvenir tasting glass for each participant and dinner during the stopover in Palestine. The return excursion to Rusk allows ample time for all craft beer lovers to savor a full serving of their favorite brew, comparing notes and sharing stories with friends and loved ones.

Anyone consuming alcohol aboard Texas State Railroad must be 21 years or older.

Pints in the Pines takes place on board the train as it travels between Rusk and Palestine, and back, in select cars.  This optional event is offered in our first-class VIP car.
