Local and visiting brew enthusiasts have another reason to toast this autumn.

After a roaring success this spring with over 3,000 check-ins, Visit Lebanon Valley’s Libations Trail is set to make a spirited return this fall on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Launching with the CLA’s Music & Brew Fest at Coleman Memorial Park, this self-guided trail offers attendees an eight-week adventure through the Valley’s finest craft breweries. Using a digital passport, participants can check in at various locations, accumulating points to earn prizes such as a Libations decal, coaster set, and even a Libations trucker hat.

The trail promises a rich blend of old and new, featuring the Valley’s latest addition, Schaylor Brewing Co.

“Sharing our craft with a new community here in the Valley has been great and we can’t wait to continue that with this trail,” said Lucan Schmidt, Schaylor’s co-owner, in a press release about the trail.

The trail will run through Saturday, Nov. 11. Other participants include Rotunda Brewing Co., Under the Bridge Hard Cider, Snitz Creek Brewery, Lebanon Valley Craft Brewery, and Isaac’s Craft Kitchen & Brewery.
