How to Plan a Craft Collective Getaway
Where: Central Waters Brewing Company
Grab lunch at Emy J’s Coffee House & Café in Stevens Point. Indulge in their lunch menu that features wraps and sandwiches, with fresh and organic ingredients. Round out a healthy, locally-sourced meal with a cup of fair trade organic coffee, a fresh fruit smoothie, or a scoop of icecream.

Explore the 29-mile Tomorrow River State Trail. The level trails are a great place for a hike or a bike ride through some beautifully scenic terrain. Further east, the trail explores more of the land shaped by glaciers that passed through central Wisconsin more than 10,000 years ago. (For more fun, don't miss the Ice Age Trail.)
Then, stop in to Central Waters Brewing Company in Amherst for a tour of their environmentally friendly facility and a tasting of the 12 beers available in their taproom.

Pull up a chair at The Landmark in Amherst, open for dinner Friday and Saturday nights. Known for fresh, natural and homemade meals made with local, organic ingredients, you’ll often find live music to accompany your meal in this beautiful and historic setting. (Watch for live music events held here throughout the year.)
Grab breakfast at Ruby Coffee Roasters. The cafe in downtown Stevens Point features their homemade coffee that rotates often, espressos, and a sweet menu filled with crepes, salads, and some treats from Main Grain Bakery. Afterward, check out the murals nearby, including one on the side of Cozy Kitchen by local artist Greg Luedtke.
