Tahoe’s Ale Trail
Whether you have been biking, hiking, or kayaking, you can take a load off and wet your whistle with a cold beer at one the 16-20 established trails that end up at a local watering hole.
As most cities and visitors groups try to attract more vacationers, apps and maps seem to be the go to resource. Yet, when the local visitors bureau was trying to decide develop a local brew pub map, they knew that incorporating outdoor activities was the the best way to go.
“The vibe that makes North Lake Tahoe so authentically alpine is the fact that outdoor activities are ingrained into every aspect of the culture.
Locals and visitors alike spend the majority of a day outside exploring, and frequently end the activity with a great beverage. The Ale Trail simply expanded upon a pattern that has always existed in the area.” Andy Chapman, President/CEO of the Incline Village Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau.
Try Some of These Trail to Ale Combos:
- A kayak paddle along east shore of the lake from Chimney Beach to the floating Pier 111 bar
- Trek the Flume Trail on your mountain bike from Spooner Lake into the Tunnel Creek Cafe near Incline Village. Also in Incline Village, Alibi Ale Works, a craft brewery that opened in late 2014.
If you’re up for it, a 36-mile route from Tahoe Triangle at Kings Beach to Tahoe City and back. The reward is ending up at Jason’s Beachside Grille and a Tahoe Sunset cocktail with passion fruit vodka, cranberry, pineapple, grapefruit juice and lemon-lime soda along with some beer-battered onion rings.
