Pour Trail Bus Tour, Hosted by The Franklin County Visitors Bureau

September 17th, 2022 * 10:45 AM to 6:30 PM
The Franklin County Visitors Bureau started 2022 by launching the Franklin County Pour Trail to highlight beer, cider, wine, and distilled spirits in and around Franklin County PA.
The trail kicked off during IceFest 2022 and featured sixteen breweries, wineries, and distilleries.
To connect fans of locally crafted spirits, Franklin County Visitors Bureau is offering a Pour Trail Bus Tour.
The tour organizes at the Franklin County 11/30 Visitors Center, located on the southwest portion of the Chambersburg square.
Participants enjoy finger foods in the Visitors Center, pick-up a goody bag, and receive a Pour Trail Passport.
The Passport is a fun way to collect Pour Trail prizes, such as t-shirts, hats, and stickers.
Visit the stops along the Pour Trail, make purchases, and save the receipts.
Each dollar spent equals one point.
For example, a purchase of $25 equals 25 points.
With sixteen stops, points add up quickly.
As a bonus, all participants of the Pour Trail Bus Tour receive 100 points.
Tickets for the day-long excursion are $75/person and include a German meal at Renfrew’s Oktoberfest as well as fifteen samples of Pour Trail beverages and a signature cocktail.
The tour begins in Chambersburg with tastings at Jan Zell Winery in Jim’s Country Market, GearHouse Brewing Co., and Liquid Art—formerly Roy Pitz.
Next stop is Waynesboro, where participants will have a German meal at Renfrew’s Annual Oktoberfest where they will also have a chance to try Rough Edges seasonal Lederhosen Mentality-Oktoberfest beer, then a tasting at 633 Brewing.
The tour heads to Mercersburg and the James Buchanan Pub for a signature cocktail in the Beer Garden.
The Pub is the boyhood home of 15th American President James Buchanan.
The tour wraps up at Cold Spring Hollow Distillery, also in Mercersburg, with a special tasting of distilled spirits.
