LA Beerathon Reveals 26-Venue Event Course One Beer at a Time [UPDATED]
The inaugural Los Angeles Beerathon is fast approaching, but all 26 locations on the Downtown "course" are being kept under wraps, with one location and one beer selection revealed each day via the event's Facebook page.
So far, we know that Magic Hat Brewing Company's Magic Hat #9 will be served at The Downtown Independent, Spaten's Spaten Pils, will be featured at Wurstküche, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery's Orange Wheat will be pouring at Salvage, and Pilsner Urquell will be at SILO: Vodka Bar. That's four down, and 22 to go in the 22 days until the March 31 event.
"The course is designed by a certified Beerathon Course Map Veteran, having extensive experience planning prior Beerathons to include only the most fun venues," explains the official LA Beerathon site.
It's not mandatory you finish to soak up any glory, and team participation is encouraged.
The L.A. Beerathon is happening Saturday, March 31st, 2012. Tickets are $55, which will have you checking in at a designated first location, and getting your map and pass, which will get you your brews at the other 25 spots.
