Time to get ready and rowdy for summer River Tubing & Brewery trips! That’s right folks, our very popular river tubing & brewery tour has finally made it to the District. After all, what could be better than spending a summer day floating down a river followed by a trip to an awesome brewery to enjoy a few cold ones? In our view, nothing.

Meet your bus and guide at one of our pickup locations and we’ll take care of the rest. After a short drive, you’ll enjoy a relaxing 1.5-2-hour river tubing experience (depending on river speed) down the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. And since we know you’re going to ask, yes coolers are permitted on the water. After you’ve gotten your fill of floating, hop off the river and head back to our tubing center to enjoy a hearty BBQ lunch.

After some lick-smacking good food, change and hop back on the bus for a quick drive over to Vanish Farmhouse Brewery. Not only does Vanish brew more than 20 of their own beers, they also grow hops on site that helps allow other regional breweries to keep their ingredients local. See what all the fuss is about and relax after tubing to enjoy a beer inside or outside at this beautiful brewery.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab a friend, significant other, roommate, co-worker, parent, acquaintance, or stranger off the street and join us for an epic day out of DC on this River Tubing & Brewery Tour.
