Craft Beer Cannonball

Featuring Rivertown Brewing Co. and Lock 27 Brewing

Take a trip back in time with LM&M Railroad.

In 2019 the LM&M Railroad will be presenting two craft beer train experiences at different price points.

Our premium tasting experience is a must for any craft beer enthusiast. The tasting experience will feature a rotating selection of local brews and a short presentation from a company representative.

The general admission experience, featuring national brands, is ideal for those that want to kick back and have a few drinks with their friends in the exciting on board atmosphere.

Passengers must be at least 21 years of age to ride this train. Passengers will be carded before departure.

Boarding begins at 5:30 so passengers can enjoy early access to the tavern car!

General Admission Experience

Passengers riding in our general admission coaches will include two 12oz cans of beer and access to self-serve light snacks.

Passengers will be able to sit any available deluxe coaches for no additional charge.

Additional drinks and snacks will be available for purchase on board the train from our tavern car.

Tasting Experience

Only 45 tickets each night will be offered for the Craft Beer Cannonball Tasting Experience. Each departure will feature a different local brewer:

2/22 - Rivertown Brewing, Monroe

3/15 - Lock 27 Brewing, Centerville

Each Tasting Experience ticket includes three samples of beer and a light pairing of mixed nuts.

Additional drinks and snacks will be available for purchase on board the train from our tavern car.

A representative will be aboard to explain each selection and answer any questions. Passengers will be seated in a climate controlled deluxe coach.
