Houston's Saint Arnold Brewing Company - which is Texas' oldest, and largest, craft brewery - has been hosting pub crawls in various parts of Houston for a number of years. Due to their popularity, those pub crawls have eventually started taking place in Austin recently as well. Now, for the first time ever, the Saint Arnold Pub Crawl will be happening in College Station this Saturday March 1st.
Before we get into filling you in on all the details, I want to strongly emphasize a few quick things up front...
1. Drink Responsibly
2. These pub crawls are SUPER fun.
3. You don't have to drink at every stop on the crawl.
4. Pace Yourself.
5. DRINK RESPONSIBLY.
Craft Beer is not Coors Light or Keystone, so just keep that in mind as you make your way through the pub crawl. OK, moving on.
Saint Arnold will utilize their "open house" schedule for the first seven stops, which is typical for all of their other pub crawls. This means you can visit those stops in any order. You'll get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first, and from there you'll visit the other seven seven stops. We will be handing the tickets out between 2:00 and 3:00 PM only, so make sure you get out there by 3:00. It's important to remember that you don't have to drink a beer (or anything at all) at every stop.
At 6:00, everybody will gather at the final stop - Blackwater Draw - and that's where the prizes for completing the pub crawl will be awarded. As is the case for all Saint Arnold pub crawls, the prize for completing the crawl is a handsome Saint Arnold pint glass. There will be a large but limited supply. Designated drivers are always eligible for the award and encouraged to attend!

While it's not mandatory to drink Saint Arnold beers on the pub crawl, it is strongly recommended and there will be a number of great options depending on what bar you're at. Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect to find:
Spring Bock (Bock)
Santo (Black Kolsch)
Endeavour (Double IPA)
Icon Red (Bohemian Pilsner)
Amber (Amber Ale)
I'll be there pub crawling myself, so come on out and say howdy. If you're trying to find my whereabouts, you can probably do that by following me on Twitter. I can't make any promises, but if the Good Bull Hunting koozies survived the #GBHMeetup I'll see if I can have some of those with me. Trust me, these pub crawls really are a lot of fun so if you're at all considering doing it, I strongly suggest it. Hope to see some of y'all there! Cheers!
