The LA Beerathon is for the brave, the strong, the weak, and the meek. This year after five consecutive Beerathons in New York City the knock-down-drag-out course will be organized in Los Angeles. Do you have what it takes to conquer 26 beers at 26 different bars?
Pick up a ticket for $55 and be greeted with a map of the city identifying 26 different locations in Downtown LA that each has a 12oz pour of craft beer with your name on it. Assuming that you’ll still be able to identify your name by the end of the night. Enjoy beers from Black Sheep Brewery, Eagle Rock, and Black Market Brewing Co. to name a few.
So far the venues have been kept top secret but promise to include some of LA’s best bars, breweries and even more anticipated are the more unusual venues like a movie theater, rooftop pool and music video release party with more than one DJ along the trail. Slurry requests for “California Love” will surely ensue. If that happens be sure to pour one for Pac.
The full list of venues will be revealed in the coming weeks via twitter so while you’re in “training” for the LA Beerathon keep one hand on your pint glass and the other on your smart-phone. The event comes with a bold proclamation that “The LA Beerathon is the greatest day of your life.” This may or may not be true depending on your track record and your level of dedication to a life filled with fine beverage events of the highest order.
One thing is for certain: You’ll leave with some great memories, or none at all.
