Perk Alert - Trails on Tap!

Trails on tap logo 1400x1200

There's a new traveling pop-up beer garden waiting for you this summer! Trails on Tap, from the creators of Parks on Tap, will appear in different parks throughout Montgomery County along the Schuylkill River Trail from now until August 4th. They’ll be visiting three more parks over the course of the summer, and will be open weekly from Wednesday thru Sunday. You can get food and drinks, and the whole pop-up garden is family friendly, with free bike and kayak shares on certain days. And you've got Perks! Get $1 off your first drink when you flash your SEPTA Key or Pass!

A portion of all their proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Schuylkill River Greenways and will be reinvested toward protecting the river and expanding the Schuylkill River Trail.
