Oct. 20, 2019: Berwick Brewing Co.

Join us for a beautiful fall float on the section of the Susquehanna that started Canoe and Brew!  We’ll paddle past Hubie the Heron’s island by Mocanaqua, drift over historic eel walls, and pass the infamous Nescopeck Falls, which killed off the only riverboat ever to attempt reaching our neck of the woods. (Don’t worry, you won’t go over them unless you want to. There’s a good alternate route.)  If we’re lucky, we’ll be treated to some nice fall foliage, too!

Five Mountain Outfitters is taking care of our  shuttle, which will cost $12 per person, including shuttling the boat.  They’re also renting boats, if you need one, for $42.40, including the shuttle and tax.  Make arrangements for shuttle or boat rental directly with them.

Once we arrive, we’ll enjoy the fabulous pizza and brews of Berwick Brewing – if we’re lucky, their vanilla porter will be on tap, but if not, the stouts are always excellent, as are the lighter beers.
