Adventure Club

Auburn is the Endurance Capital of the world and with some of the best hiking running and riding trails in California on our door step, we decided to create the Alehouse Adventure Club. Owners Lisa and Brian Ford have always had a love of the outdoors and obviously a passion for great beer so we combined the two! We are looking for some like-minded individuals that want to get together, head outside, get a sweat on and enjoy a great craft beer when we are done. You could say we are a beer club with an adventure problem.

The membership is $50 and includes:

  • Your membership card - valid until you have used all the punches!
  • 12 sessions with a certified personal trainer who is also a certified kayaking instructor and white-water rafting guide
  • 12 visits to the Annex or Alehouse where your beers are $1 off
  • $5 off your bill coupon
  • $10 off your bill coupon
  • One piece of member only limited-edition swag
  • $1 off a crowler fill 

We will offer two classes a week which will vary in the style of class. Our goal is to offer a variety of training so you can get a mixture of activities or pick and choose what classes you want to come to. We hope to offer: running, hiking, bootcamp workouts, yoga, Pilates and eventually extra sessions where we go kayaking, river rafting, mountain biking etc. Some events are kid friendly. Any children under 13 can attend these events for free but must still sign a waiver.

We also have a Facebook Group with more tips and tricks for health and wellness with videos and links for new workouts, stretching and more. 

You can sign up for a membership at the Alehouse at any time during regular business hours or at the beginning of any event! 

Monthly Schedule

Hello Adventure clubbers. 

Can you believe that it's already September? This summer has been pretty crazy with COVID and all the fires. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. As you may have noticed there was a small break in the action. We apologize but are back up and running with all the behind the scenes stuff taken care of. We are now ready to roll!

Here are the events planned for September:

Sunday 5th  Hike in the canyon. Meeting at Robie Point at 9am. The hike will be approximately 3 miles round trip. This usually takes about 2 hours. Bring water and a snack. I recommend wearing a cap and sun glasses. I like to use trail shoes but normal walking shoes work too.

Sunday 12th Mountain biking. We will meet on Russell road at the trail head of Stage Coach at 8:45am. The ride will take approximately 2.5 hours. Bring plenty of water and a snack. I usually take about 1.5 liters of water in a backpack and a 500ml bottle on bike. I rearly use that much water but I like to have some left over incase I end up out there longer than I planned.  

Wednesday 22nd Yoga. Meeting at the Aid Station running store in Downtown Auburn at 6pm. Our instructor Alison is amazing and will cater to all levels so if this is your first time you will fit right in.  Bring your own mat and water bottle. We will be sticking around for a quick drink after if you would like to join.

Sunday 26th Beginner Mountain bike class/ride.  Our coach Dave has so much knowledge and experience in mountain biking that you don’t want to miss this. Even if you have some experience riding I would still recommend  coming along because you are bound to learn something, plus any day on your bike is a good day. More info on location and time to come. 


21st - Bike Mechanics Class.  This is a great chance to learn some techniques on how to maintain your bike. if you are an avid mountain biker, road biker or a cruiser I recommend this class.  Plus we will be drinking beer during. It's a win win. Please RSVP if you plan on going. See you there.

28th Beer pairing dinner. Beer pairing dinners are fun especially when its Alehouse beer and food. price is $40 for Adventure club members and $50 for non members. This dinner will be a 5 course meal and you can buy beer in between courses if you want. More information about the menu will come out soon. See you all there. Please RSVP if you plan on going. thank you.


21st Hike on Steven's Trail in Colfax. Its been a while since we have gone on a hike so its time lace up the trail shoes or boots and get out in nature. We are meeting at 9am and parking can get a little crazy at this trail head so maybe plan to get there a little early. I will be keeping an eye on the weather but a little rain won't ruin our hike. Just plan to have a rain jacket with you. If anyone needs directions contact me and i can send you a location. See you all at the trail head. 

25th Thanksgiving Mountain bike ride. What better way to build up some hunger for thanksgiving dinner than a mountain bike ride and some fresh air. We will meet on Russell road at the entrance to Stage Coach trail head at 9am. Depending on how much time the group has and skill level we can drop down into the canyon and go over to culvert trail, or have just as much fun on the Auburn side with plenty of trails to choose from. All level are welcome. If anyone really wants to go but doesn't have a mountain bike please feel free to reach out and we will try figure something out. See you on the trails.

Updates you need to know

There are a couple reminders for everyone:

  • If you plan on attending an event you MUST RSVP by at least 5pm the night before. You can contact us via either the Group Facebook Page or by texting Phil directly at 530-320-6516.
  • You must bring your membership cards with you to every session.
  • If you are a member and have not signed a waiver, please be prepared to do so at the next event. IF you still have it at home, please mail it back.
  • Non-members are only allowed ONE free session and they must sign a waiver before the session. WE have to stay strong on this rule. It's only $50 and the benefits far outweigh the price. So get your friends on board if they want to come have fun with us!
