Starting June 18th, Napa Valley Wine Train will be offering a brand new experience made for beer enthusiasts: the Hop Train.

“We’re putting beer before Bordeaux and cans before corks,” the Hop Train website says. “Join the beer guys in wine country — the Napa Palisades Beer Company — for a Wine Train takeover.”

Guests will join the beer company each Monday night for a once-in-a-lifetime two-hour train ride through Napa Valley. During that time they can test out some local flights of beer and snack on some tasty bites while enjoying 360 views of the landscape.

According to the website, a few of their signature brews include the 1849 Gold Rush Red, an “American style with a smooth mouthfeel that is slightly dry with a touch of caramel, smoke, and honey.” There’s also the Loco IPA, a “new brew, a citrus-filled tropical IPA with rich mouthfeel that finishes with a touch of bitterness” or the Little Loco Session IPA, which is described as “light and crisp, slightly bitter with citrus flavor and a hint of pine on the finish.”

Tickets for the Hop Train will cost $75 a person, though if you’re local to the Napa area you can get them for $50.
