People are fascinated by the origins of things they love, which explains the popularity of brewery tours or visits to the factory where little sisters are made. See where it all began with this Groupon.
$59 for Bike and Brew and Alpacas Too Tour ($120 Value)
Tours meet at 106th Street and Central Park West in New York at 9:15 a.m., where a shuttle waits to trundle beyond city and state limits to New Jersey farm country. After stopping at a historic stone brewery dating back to 1776, groups mount their bikes and ride a New Jersey rail trail that runs along a river, granting glimpses of alpacas, llamas, horses, and a cheese farm. At the conclusions of the tour, groups return to the brewery for beer and socializing. Tours return to the pickup location at around 7 p.m.
Customers have the option to rent a hybrid bike ($35) and purchase a Panera Bread boxed lunch to eat before the trek ($12). Those who opt not to purchase lunch should bring a meal of their own. This Groupon covers photos of the event and the first round of beer samples. Click here for available tour dates.
