You could easily convince us to take a ride in a 1920s steam locomotive through the Colorado mountains without offering us beer. So it should come as no surprise that a trip on the Durango Brew Train sounds a lot like heaven. An authentic 1920s steam locomotive takes passengers through the Animas Valley, high above the Animas River, through to San Juan National Forest, all while you enjoy beer from Steamworks, Ska, Animas Brewing, and a few other craft breweries from the area. That’s all the good news. The bad news is the Durango Brew Train doesn’t run often, so it’s best to keep tabs on its website so you can reserve your place aboard this magical, drunken journey.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
