The annual Rails & Ales event showcases the Twin Cities’ growing beer scene through a self-guided ride along the Metro Transit Light Rail. The pub crawl is a two-city adventure that encourages people to try new things, including rare and special one-off beers only available for participants. A whopping 19 locations are hosting revelers, so you probably shouldn’t plan to hit them all: Choose from veterans like Town Hall and Fulton, hotspots like Barrel Theory and Modist, newer businesses like Number 12 Cider and Stacked Deck, and plenty of other destinations along the way. Tickets score riders their first two pints, chances to win cool prizes, special prices on food and drink, and a commemorative T-shirt. Your journey will begin at either Union Depot in St. Paul or Target Field Station in Minneapolis. Find tickets and more info at getknitevents.com. 21+.
