Beer: Indy Pub Crawl

Indy Pub Crawl is a bi-annual pub crawl around downtown bars/restaurants. The organizers have apparently been doing this for 10 years! Their summer crawl will take place on Saturday, June 28th and the tentative schedule is:

11:30 The Living Room Lounge
12:10 The Elbow Room
12:50 The Front Page
1:30 Rathskeller
2:20 Bourbon Street (lunch stop)
3:10 AJ’s Lounge
4:00 Buggs Temple
4:50 Spencers Tavern
5:40 Baseys
6:30 The Dugout
7:10 Radio Radio
7:50 Mystery Stop
8:40 Subterra

The list isn't 100% confirmed yet, but given the distance between some of the locations (particularly Buggs->Spencers) they're going to have a bus. A small donation will be required to cover that cost. More information here.

With that list, think of all the variety in beer you could have!

Seriously though, Gina and I talked about doing something like this with HBG/Brewer's Guild but she doubts that there's enough interest for us to cover costs.

I think I might go on this crawl, though I can definitely see myself tapping out at Spencer's. That would be a healthy 8 stops into the crawl. I like Spencer's a lot and Dustin is always fun to chat with about beer if he's tending bar.

I wanted to do this a couple years ago. I haven't been to most of the bars on that list as I just don't get out downtown too much. Going to mark this on the calendar and hopefully should be able to make it.

I have done a few pubcrawls in Milwaukee that are just unbelievable. $20 up front and you get a T-shirt commemorating the event as well as 1 beer at each bar on the list. When you walk into the bar, you hand them your checklist and they cross their name off the list and hand you a beer. I should mention there were 20 bars on the last one I did and you get a full 12oz sized pour. Beers ranged from Pabst to New Glarus Spotted Cow to Tyranena IPA, each bar having a different keg 'donated' to it for the cause. I don't really know how that got organized to have that much beer flowing at that low of a price and to throw a T-shirt in as well.
