River rats have married beer and rafting for decades, but more recently raft companies have institutionalized the pairing. Northwest Rafting Company’s four-day Brews with Views raft trips on the Rogue River ($895; are just one example. (O.A.R.S. also has new trips on the Tuolomne, Rogue, and Main, Lower, and Middle Fork Salmon rivers.). By day, rafters ply the Class II and III rapids and marvel at the lush gorge on this Wild and Scenic stunner. By afternoon, beer experts from one of three esteemed breweries—Sierra Nevada Brewing, Deschutes Brewery, and Double Mountain Brewing—extol the virtues of their ales and offer unlimited tastings on remote, sandy beaches.
