REI and Sierra Nevada have joined forces to offer a unique hiking and beer sampling adventure, because we all know that a cold brew tastes even better when it's enjoyed outdoors! REI's professional guides will meet the group at Sierra Nevada, then travel together to the trailhead in Pisgah National Forest. We'll hike a moderate 5-mile loop, taking in fresh mountain air and gorgeous views along the way. After our hike, we'll return to the brewery to meet our Beer Guides, who will facilitate a private tasting session. We'll enjoy trying several of Sierra Nevada's craft brews and eating southern-inspired hors d'oeuvres, prepared just for us. After our tasting, continue the adventure on your own by exploring Sierra Nevada's state-of-the-art brewery and enjoying another beer on the terrace or in the Taproom. All participants must be at least 21 years old, with valid ID.
