I think that we can all agree that two of the best things on the face of the Earth are beer and traveling. Yes, I know they seem like two completely unrelated subjects, but they’re both pretty great, aren’t they?

When I was 15 I was a part of a student ambassador program that allowed me to visit England, Wales, and France for three weeks. I even got to turn 16 in England. It was pretty cool. Ever since then I’ve been addicted to travel and adventure. And of course, my love for beer skyrocketed after I graduated high school.

I’m an aspiring beer snob and love trying different kinds of craft beer. I said all that to say this – I’m pretty stoked for the River Hopper Expedition that Beaver Island Brewing and  Clear Waters Outfitting are having.

The experience includes a scenic canoe trip down the Mississippi River where paddlers will be able to explore & float through the Beaver Islands, before heading back to the Beaver Island tap room where you’ll receive an exclusive experimental IPA, a tour of the on-site, and a beer brat buffet.

Catch beer and brats at 8:45 am and the first expedition at 10 am on June 1st. It begins at the Beaver Island Brewing Tap Room. I’m definitely going to check this out. Tickets are available now for $55. It sounds like an awesome time.
