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 its inception in 2014.  We are very excited to announce the return of ‘Rails and Ales’ for the eighth year in a row!  This year’s event has been reimagined to create a new self-guided experience that will take place over the course of 3 days, with the goal of creating a fun-filled weekend (Friday, October 1 at 4 PM through Sunday, October 3 at 6 PM).  With more time to explore, you’ll be able to visit even more taprooms, all while not having to fight crowds during these unusual times.  Join us as we come together to celebrate community and craft beer on one epic weekend on this year’s 8th Annual ‘Rails & Ales’!
