What you'll do

This unique departure is sure to please all of your senses, from aromatic craft beers to stunning mountain scenery. And on this inagural trip, participants will be charged with naming the beer specially created for this trip by the master brewer at South Gate Brewery. So lace up your boots, grab your favorite stein, and let's head into the high country! "Hopportunity" is knocking!

The Ansel Adams Wilderness is one of the best-kept secrets of the High Sierra. Located on the southern border of Yosemite National Park, you’ll find mile upon mile of sweeping granite ridges, spectacular vistas, wildflower-strewn meadows and a lifetime of fishing possibilities in hundreds of sparkling high mountain lakes. We'll spend our days exploring this rich mountain environment, via established on- and of-trail routes. There's even the option of a peak ascent of one of the 10,000+ ft peaks making up the southern border of Yosemite!

In the evenings, we’ll enjoy hand-crafted beers from the Southgate Brewery, including our own unique brew created just for this trip. You’ll have a chance to get some tips on brewing from the owner/brewmaster of Southgate during happy hour, as well as an insiders' tour of the Brewery during the trip orientation.
