After a rousing and successful season in 2018, the Napa Valley Wine Train plans to re-launch its Hop Train for the summer and fall seasons. The Hop Train will take over the wine train to bring together beer lovers from across the region and nation.


Operated by the team from Napa Palisades Beer Company, the two-hour train journey will take place Monday nights from June 3 until the end of October.


Guests will be able to sample two free Napa Palisades pints, like the Loco IPA, the 1849 Gold Rush Red Ale or the Little Loco Session IPA, as well as snacks, as the train snakes through Napa’s scenic wine country. The train’s open-air car (a.k.a. the Vista Dome) allows passengers to soak in panoramic views of the vineyards, and on-board musical acts will provide entertainment throughout the evening.


Beyond the two free beers, guests will also be able to purchase more beer as well as wine and cocktails.


Tickets can be purchased on the Hop Train website for $80. The train departs every Monday starting at 6 p.m., and the price includes two pints of beer, entertainment and “bar bites.”
