Experience summary

Floating on the river and drinking beer—it’s a dream come true, we know. The Paddled Pub has partnered with the premier brewery in Grants Pass, Oregon (Climate City Brewing) to create a one of a kind river experience. Sitting around our custom designed pub bar the space feels familiar, like your local, “where everybody knows your name” kind of pub. But when you get a little splash from the river and look around you quickly remember this is not Cheers and not your local pub. You are on a raft floating down the majestic Rogue River.

At the end of the float trip, our van returns your group back to Climate City Brewing, where the trip began. Head inside, sit around the fire pit, order some food, and keep the great day going in Grants Pass’ best brew pub.

The afternoon float is a refreshing experience, enjoying the middle of the day.  Light snacks are provided.

The sunset float is very arguably the most beautiful time of day on the river.  Watch the sun dip out of the sky from the vantage point of the river.  The crowds are gone, the wildlife is out, the heat of the day has passed.  Dinner is served on the sunset float.

Important: We are now including the cost of two “Crowlers” in the price of your trip.  The beer is provided by Climate City Brewing and in the confirmation process of your reservation you will be able to choose your two beer types. We have a limit of 2 Crowlers per person on the boat. Wine is also available for a $5 upgrade. If you choose wine you only get one beverage choice.

How to dress:

Our boat does have a sun-shade but hot days are still warm. The river wind combined with the little splashes and the sun shade typically keep things comfortable. On the sunset float or cooler days, we recommend bringing a jacket just in case. Even with our sun-shade, sunscreen and hats are advised. A little splashing may occur on this trip so wear clothing you will be comfortable in if it becomes a little wet. Your feet are likely to get wet, so sandals are recommended.

  • Load into the van.

    When everyone has their beverages in hand, you’ll head outside and load into the van. The group will have a five-minute drive to our launch point on the Rogue River. At the river, the guide will give a brief orientation on the boat and our river travel before everyone loads up, the back rests are put in place, and we start our two-hour float down river through the town of Grants Pass.

  • Head down the river.

    Once floating, our server will get everyone a pint glass for you to fill with your personal beverage out of the cooler. Once your beer is poured and snacks are being served, just sit back, take in the surroundings, enjoy your friends and love where you are.

  • Arrive at the takeout.

    After about 7-river-miles, a few small rapids, and hopefully a few pints, the group arrives at the takeout for the trip. When everyone has made it off the raft the group will load into the van and return to Climate City Brewing, where we strongly recommend going inside and grab one of Southern Oregon’s best meals.

The Brewery

Climate City Brewing Company is one of the newest additions to the craft beer scene in Southern Oregon. Their year round beers include Nookie IPA, Yellow Belly Blonde, Rainie Falls Red, and Hyperion Porter. We highly recommend that, before or after your float, you spend some time in the brewery enjoying a delicious meal from their up-scale pub menu and partaking in a few of their exceptional seasonal beers.

The Paddled Pub raft.

The Boat

Working with SOTAR Manufacturing, the world’s premier raft builder, (who happens to be local in Southern Oregon), we designed a 20-foot raft with a custom frame designed for sitting around a pub style bar while floating. Our raft is navigated by a skilled oarsman on a stern frame in the back of the boat.
