Roadtrip Idea: Siskiyou Beer Trail

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

Start in south Siskiyou with Dunsmuir Brewery Works, known for its delicious beer and fantastic food. Then, make your way to Siskiyou Brew Works in McCloud, a favorite local nanobrewery and pizzeria.

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 with a vast beer selection and diversely delicious menu.

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!
