Running every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. beginning January 5, 2013, tours will explore the groundbreaking brew houses scattered throughout the Rogue Valley. During excursions, which step off from the Indigo Creek Outfitters Rafting Center, participants will explore the nooks and crannies of three to four nanobreweries. Depending on the day, participants might sample Apocalypse Brewing Company's signature northwest pale ale (NPA), pick the brains of the brewers at Bricktowne Brewing Company, or explore the cavernous interior of Southern Oregon Brewing Company's 11,000-square-foot facility. Walkabout Brewing Company and Portal Brewing Company round out the list of potential destinations. Along the way, participants can refuel with light bites from Bricktowne's kitchens and sips of beers drawn straight from the source.
Indigo Creek Outfitters
Though Will Volpert founded Indigo Creek Outfitters in 2011, his river-touring experience began much earlier. As a kid, his parents ran an outfitting business in Salmon, Idaho, where salmon guides would stay with them for the summer. During six-day rafting trips, he learned the ways of river culture and fell in love with fishing and navigating rapids. Today, he shares his expertise with families of all experience levels, leading whitewater trips on the Rogue River and building custom vacations in Oregon and Idaho. For a bit of local flavor, the staff also organizes walking tours of local restaurants and tastings at nanobreweries.
