SOLD OUT FOR 2018- Brats and Beer Cruise

Join us for our “three B” cruise! Beer, Bratwurst, and Beautiful fall foliage on the Connecticut River. A great night is in store for you from the minute you smell the brats sizzling on the grill to the last sip of beer as you glide into dock after a stunning sunset. “The Southern Voice Band” is sure to be a fun addition to both cruises, playing an awesome selection of popular hits!

Ride our vintage train & riverboat while enjoying tastings of several carefully selected craft beers. Help yourself to a buffet of brats with all the fixin’s. Additional beverages and snacks available for purchase on boat.  Take home a gift bag that includes an engraved beer glass as a memento. Four beer tastings provided by Thimble Island Brewing Company of Branford, CT.
