Raft California & Crooked Lane

Announcing the official Raft California and Crooked Lane Brewing Company Collaboration 

As we continue to work together in 2021, our two companies are dedicated to giving our guests the best that California and the West have to offer – Award winning Craft Beers & the Most White Water Rafting Trips in the West.

Want free beer?

Special Celebration Promo – reserve your Middle Fork or Multi-day white water rafting trip by April 30th & we will email you a voucher for a 4 pack from Crooked Lane Brewing Company. The Brewery is located in Auburn, CA & features a fantastic outdoor biergarten, you can redeem your voucher via order online or at the taphouse.*

Enjoying a cold beer after an outdoor adventure has become a ritual for many. There’s nothing like a cold brew (or seltzer, or sour) after a day of fun in the sun, Raft California & Crooked Lane staff agree!

In 2020 we started meeting our Class 4 Middle Fork American River trips at the Brewery in Auburn. This new meeting location was the perfect pairing to the upgraded rafting trips we offer. Crooked Lane allows us use of their clean and private restrooms in the morning and has cold drinks brewed on location for after your trip.

Our staff has enjoyed all types of drinks at Crooked Lane, some of our favorites include the 1-2 Punch, SR-16, Blood Simple and any flavor of seltzer. Another staff favorite is the food – on most days, a food truck is parked at the brewery serving tasty food!

The Crooked Lane staff has also enjoyed rafting on the American River. In the year of working together we have only grown more fond of each other’s companies, our employees, and values. We are really excited to continue to work with each other and bring the love of fun, beer, and the great outdoors to our guests. 

Check out Crooked Lane Brewery to get a sense of who they are and the incredible beer they brew.

We look forward to seeing you on the rivers & the brewery!
