Pints in the Pines

All Aboard!

What could be better than enjoying the beautiful East Texas Piney Woods from a vintage train whilst wetting your whistle with some tasty local ales?

Make memories with friends by taking a journey on our “Pints in the Pines” excursion.  This is an adult-only excursion departing promptly from Palestine, TX at 6:30 pm. We will travel through the Piney Woods of East Texas to our Rusk, TX Rail Depot while sampling several local or regional beers and appetizers.  If you are not a “beer” drinker, don’t fret!!  We have a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase onboard.

Upon our arrival at the Rusk, TX Depot, we will enjoy a catered dinner with dessert outside as the sun sets and the night sky falls upon us. On our journey back to Palestine, we will enjoy a final tasting and share laughs and conversation with family and friends.

This excursion is approximately 4 hours in duration, including our time on the grounds at Rusk.  The ticket price includes beer samplings, dinner, dessert and a Texas State Railroad Pint Glass as a special memento of your journey with us.

Several seating and pricing options are available with restrooms on board as well as temperature-controlled passenger cars.  We do offer an ADA-compliant railcar; however, reservations must be made directly with our reservations desk at 855-632-7729.

Reserve your spot today as this event will sell out!  Come and make memories at our “Pints in the Pines” 2024 excursion!

You must be 21 to participate in the beer tasting. The menu and breweries will be announced closer to the event date.

This is NOT a steam event.

I have ridden on it twice. Take a ride into the past. A slow relaxing ride through some pleasant countryside.
