Proving that his interests go beyond great cocktails and fine spirits, 213 Proprietor Cedd Moses is teaming up with The Beer Chicks (Christina Perozzi and Hallie Beaune) to present the inaugural L.A. Craft Beer Crawl, taking place in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, September 25th. For the price of one ticket, Crawlers will get unlimited samples of 50 craft beers, including Allagash, Brouwerij West, Craftsman, Dogfish Head, Eagle Rock, Jolly Pumpkin, Lost Coast, Stone, Telegraph, Unibroue and many more. The Crawl will be hosted at 213 bars Seven Grand, Cole’s, The Varnish, Las Perlas, Casey’s, Golden Gopher, Broadway Bar and Caña. The beer selection is curated by Perozzi and Beaune, authors of The Naked Pint: An Unadulterated Guide to Craft Beer.
The Crawl begins at Casey’s Irish Pub, where Crawlers will get a 6-ounce tasting glass, wristband and map (sure to come in handy after a few samples). Each 213 venue will offer its own distinct vibe and host different craft breweries: Seven Grand will pour barrel-aged beers with scotch and bourbon enhanced notes; The Beer Chicks will sign books at Golden Gopher; Pulitzer Prize winning food writer Jonathan Gold will host the VIP Room at the Varnish, where guests can enjoy Cole’s French Dip sandwiches paired with top German-style taps, as well as beer cocktails and a meet and greet with brewers.
To help Crawlers soak up the suds, Gold has selected some of L.A.’s top gourmet food trucks, including Grilled Cheese Truck, LudoTruck and Manila Machine.
Included in the ticket is admission to an afterparty at Casey’s, featuring live music and a dozen craft pints.
