Beer on the Rails

Inspired by the success of the annual Wine Tasting Specials, Niles Canyon Railway will have something special for beer aficionados this year as they host Beer on the Rails, a fundraising event, on two Saturdays: June 4 and 18. Be treated to a two-hour ride while tasting beer from local breweries and accompanying food.

According to Donna Alexander, Sunol station agent, We have been doing our Wine Tasting Specials for about 15 years. We noticed that beer was becoming a big draw at events, so our commissary department decided to try a beer train. We had our first Octoberfest Beer Train last year, and it was very successful. We decided to try it again in the summer.

Sample a variety of beers from Altamont Brewery, Workingman Brewery, 8 Bridges Brewery and more. There will be a representative from the different breweries pouring at each table onboard; they can answer any questions about their brewery. Passengers will be able to walk around the train and sample the beer as well.

There will also be music on board by the Edgewood Mountain Boys, a bluegrass Americana duo. Food is included in the price of the ticket; passengers will be served Polish sausages in buns, choice of potato salad or macaroni salad, and chips.

50 years of Lake Chabot

Resting along the southwest corner of Anthony Chabot Regional Park sits 317 acres of pure aquatic beauty. For the last 50 years, Lake Chabot has been a destination for many East Bay locals. This year, the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the lakes opening to the public with the Lake Chabot 50th Anniversary Festival and Fishing Derby on Saturday, June 4.

Festivities officially kick off at 9 a.m. and attendees will be able to enjoy free lake tours aboard the Chabot Queen (while tickets last), nature hikes, educational fishing clinics and demonstrations, and much more. We will have a fishing derby kick-off, paddle boat races, and live entertainment with a rock tribute band TinMan, said EBRPDs public information representative Isa Polt-Jones, continuing, There will be activities for the kids, a barbeque, and a beer garden sponsored by Drakes Brewing Co. of San Leandro. While the event is free, food and other items such as the fishing derby tickets, commemorative T-shirts, and Drakes special Kick-Back Ale brew can be purchased.

Newark Symphonic Winds Free Summer Concert
