Meet local artisans, sample local brews, and drive around beautiful Eastern Oregon on this guided half day craft-focused tour. You’ll visit and talk to the minds behind a local brewery, winery, distillery, malt shop, and chocolatier. At each stop you'll have access to exclusive deals. This tour involves a short walking portion in downtown Baker City and light historic interpretation.
Meet your guide at 1PM for complimentary pick-up at your Baker City hotel. Hop on board the tour van and receive your customized paper itinerary featuring brief explanations of the stops, the deals at each location, and a space for tasting notes.
Your first stop is Eastern Oregon’s only winery. Located in the high desert, you’ll cross the Oregon Trail and drive by expansive century farms and ranches. After hearing the winemakers unique small-town story, and sampling wine in the homemade tasting room, you just might have enough time to take a private tour of the family’s vineyard.
Next, it’s back to Baker City for a quick stop to explore the agricultural side of beer brewing. Tour the small factory of an artisanal manufacturer of malted barley. Taste the grain and remember what you learn because later in the tour you’ll sample the intoxicating end product at Baker City’s premier brewery.
Bring comfortable shoes for the following walking portion of the tour as you head to historic main street. Enjoy some light historical interpretation during your stroll down Main to a distillery, brewery, and, time allowing, a chocolatier. Your guide will hand it over to the pros as they lead you through guided tastings and private tours of the facilities not usually open to the public. You’ll end your day at the brewery, just in time for happy hour. Alternatively, jump back in the van for a complimentary drop off at your hotel.
