Pair your trip with a pint

Reap your reward for all of the hard work you do on the trails and treat yourself to a post-ride, barley-based electrolyte drink. Here’s some of our recommendations for three awesome weekend trips this year.

Camden Trail, Camden State Park and Brau Brothers Brewing

Kick off your riding season with a trip down south. Marshall, MN is home to a network of city trails and the Camden Regional Trail into Camden State Park. Experience them both and quench your thirst at the nearby Brau Brothers taproom. If you time it right, you can visit during the 2023 Made in MN Craft Beer and Wine Festival.
