With Siskiyou County’s endless opportunity for outdoor adventure, it also packs with it some of the best craft beer in Northern California. Take your time over a weekend and follow this road trip route to enjoy it all!
Siskiyou Beer Trail
Next stop is Mt. Shasta, where you’ll find two craft beer tap houses worthy of a stop: Pipeline, Mt. Shasta’s newest craft kitchen in downtown, as well as The Garden Tap, a fun craft beer garden experience surrounded by the Native Grounds Nursery.
Spend the night in Mt. Shasta or Weed. Hit up a delicious hangover breakfast at Seven Suns, the original Black Bear Diner or the Hi-Lo Cafe. Then, continue on the Siskiyou Beer Trail at Mt. Shasta Brewing in Weed, a longtime local brewery known for their distinct beers and quirky alehouse.
Finally, head west “over the hill” on Highway 3 from Yreka to the tiny town of Etna, a Pacific Crest Trail hotspot where Paystreak Brewing keeps the downtown neighborhood lively with its craft beers such as Callahan Gold and Streaker IPA. For a fun detour to Callahan for which that beer is named, head 12 miles south on Highway 3 to the Callahan Emporium. You’ll find a great roadside dive experience and can take a six-pack to go!
