Where you'll be

Clark (Richard) Playlot Park, our start and end point, is an awesome newer park with a big boat ramp for ease of river access. Then we will paddle to two different breweries. The first of two is a newer age brewery with lots of interesting beer that is truly one of a kind. The second brewery is a more traditional german brewery which holds true to many classic beer standards.
