At GetKnit we understand the value of tradition and are honored that many of you have made ‘Rails & Ales’ a yearly ritual with your friends and family since it’s inception in 2014.  While current restrictions are limiting our ability to all come together to celebrate community and craft beer on one epic day, we wanted to keep the spirit of this experience alive, while creating some needed fun for you during these hard times, and find a way to support our brewery and cidery partners!  In light of that, we’re excited to introduce our Self-Guided Global Pandemic Edition of ‘Rails & Ales’!

While things will certainly look different this year, we encourage you to make this “self-guided” event your own.  Mask up and hop brewery to brewery.  Take some beer to go from some of your favorite taprooms and host your own socially distanced tasting party.  Play it slow and visit a different taproom each week for the full duration of the event.  Or ditch the “credit coin”, slide on your comfy new shirt and keep binging Netflix!  No matter what path you choose, be safe and make sure to check with any taprooms you plan to visit in advance so that you’re up-to-date on their current policies and regulations.

In an effort to help guide you , included with your t-shirt and $5 “credit coin” is an overview that includes a list of featured taprooms along the Green Line, any specials being offered and/or pertinent info you should know, some contests to add to the fun, and some other surprises!  Gather up your family and friends and decide how you want to “crawl”…

Are you excited to enjoy some local craft beer but not ready to do so in a taproom?  Perfect!  Your included $5 “credit coin” is good towards any takeaway beer/cider at our 17 participating taprooms!  Gather up those that you’ve been quarantining with, create your own taproom in your backyard, slip on your ‘Rails & Ales’ t-shirt and go for your “crawl”.

Are you just pumped up to add to your GetKnit t-shirt collection?!  We don’t blame you – they are pretty soft after all.  Your included $5 “credit coin” can be gifted to someone in your life more eager to head out.  Meanwhile you can slip on your ‘Rails & Ales’ t-shirt, marvel at your collection, and go for your t-shirt “crawl”.

Are you ready to mask up, visit some taprooms, and enjoy some socially distanced pints of craft beer?  Wonderful!  Your included $5 “credit coin” is good towards any beer/cider at our 17 participating taprooms!  Before you go, please make sure you are up-to-date on the requirements set by each taproom.  Pick a day, slip on your ‘Rails & Ales’ t-shirt and go for your “crawl”.

Are you looking for an excuse to try some new breweries and visit some old favorites over the course of the redemption window?  Sounds fun!  Your included $5 “credit coin” can be used anytime throughout the 5-week long “event”!  Throw on your ‘Rails & Ales’ t-shirt, head out on a random Tuesday to pick-up a crowler from a new spot, the next week you can visit another, and so on.  Get comfy and casual on your “crawl”.
