The fifth annual Ales for the Trail is back this year at the newly remodeled McEuen Park in downtown Coeur d’Alene. Brewers will be on hand and ready to pour on August 12 from 2-8 p.m. In addition to 25 of the Northwest’s best breweries, there will be also be three cideries at this year’s event. Ales for the Trail is the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year, and proceeds from the event go towards trail expansion and improvement projects such as repainting the Stateline Bridge and paving the last mile of the Prairie Trail. According to newly appointed Executive Director, Todd Dunfield, “this event provides an opportunity for the trail loving community and local brewers to get together for a great cause.” The price for this year’s event is $30 for 6 tickets, and each ticket is good for one 5 oz pour of your choice. The first 550 people to purchase their tickets will receive a commemorative Silipint, an unbreakable, unmeltable silicone drinking glass with the Ales for the Trail logo printed on it. Food will also be available to purchase and there will be live music performed by KOSH and Nu Jack City. For more information visit http://www.alesforthetrail.org. //
