Paddles and Pints Combines Beer and Adventure
Sometimes there's nothing better after a day of exertion than a good beer. The 2010 Paddles and Pints rafting trip combines both. Rogue Wilderness Adventures is partnering with Oregon brew master Mark Vickery for three days of whitewater rapids and tasty brews. For the last five years Mark has been the head brewer at Golden Valley Brewery in McMinnville, Oregon and he has over 20 years of brewing experience. This trip will be a rafting excursion down the wild and scenic Rogue River Canyon in Oregon. During the day, the staff of Rogue Wilderness Adventures will take paddlers down one of the most beautiful whitewater rivers in the country. Evenings will be spent camping on sandy beaches as guides serve dishes like steak, grilled shrimp, and fajitas paired with a variety of beers. Mark will be lecturing each evening on his favorite beer types and how each one is created. The trip runs Friday August 27, 2010 to Sunday August 29, 2010 or Friday September 10, 2010 to Sunday September 12, 2010. The cost is $899 per person. Other special trips are available including the Paddles and Paws Rafting trip that pairs dogs and owners for an exhilarating adventure.
