Are you a bonafide beer geek? Well then, we have some news for you: The third annual L.A. Craft Beer Crawl is coming back to Downtown L.A. Saturday, August 18th. Over 50 craft beers will be poured for the sampling at Cedd Moses' bars, which include Casey's, Cole's, Seven Grand, Las Perlas, Caña, Broadway Bar, Tony's Saloon, and the Golden Gopher. The event is a collaboration between Moses, Hallie Beaune, and Christina Perozzi. Beaune and Perozzi, better known to the community as the Beer Chicks, will be on hand for various activities throughout the day. They have been consultants on Moses' bars since last August.

The crawl will feature some of the top craft and artisanal brewers in the country, all within stumbling distance of each other. Breweries so far include:

Allagash Brewing
Craftsman Brewing
Deschutes Brewery
Noble Ale Works
Uncommon Brewers
Ballast Point Brewing

In terms of specialty tasting sessions, the Beer Chicks will be hosting one on their favorite beers of the crawl, as well as a Scotch and craft beer pairing with Highland Park. There will also be a panel highlighting the Italian craft beer movement with beer expert Tomm Carroll. David "The Gueuzehound" Watrous of Beachwood BBQ will lead a class on sour beer.
