MICRO-BREW AT ITS FINEST
Salida is a beer lover's paradise. Adding to the beautiful surroundings, brewers have flocked to this area and created a micro-brew community on par with any place in the State.
See things unavailable to the general public. Nowhere else can you experience a behind-the-scenes look at select local breweries. You'll learn fascinating details about the art of brewing, discover how your favorite beers get created and learn about the canning process.
The tour begins at 146 Taphouse--a unique watering hole with 40-taps but no bartender. Uncover how this operation works, including the computerized system controlling everything from keg to tap.
"The tour was awesome! The guide was great, funny, and very informative. I seriously wish it was longer. Had the time of my life!"
THREE STOPS & 9 BEER SAMPLES
The first brewery on your tour is Tres Litros, the newest entry into the Salida beer scene.
The name of this place is as intriguing as the beer is tasty. For as long as beer has existed, laborers and field hands were given three liters (tres litros) of local beer as a part of a day’s work. The beer was safer to drink than the water and kept locals in good health to work hard.
One of the owners of this company will guide you through their creative process, sharing the inspiration behind their unique brews, and offering up three samples to give a wide range of tastings.
"The tour was excellent, we had a great time and an excellent tour guide!"

VISIT WITH MASTER BREWERS
The final stop on this three-hour deep dive into all things beer is Moonlight Pizza & Brewpub.
If you've only visited here for food, you're missing out! The team at Moonlight currently brews 15 different types of suds!
The history of the location of this brewery is as intriguing as the beer is tasty. The first church in Salida was built on this location in 1880--you'll learn more facts as you sample three beers direct from the tap.
A beer trivia contest, prizes, tidbits of local history, and fun are all part of this brew experience.
"The tour was interesting and the guide was very friendly and engaging!"
