Crawl For Cancer (credit: crawlforcancer.org)
Colorado has established itself nationally as a leading state for many of the finest award-winning breweries and microbreweries. While the Mile High sunshine warms our most brilliant seasons, why not get out and experience the variety of what Denver pubs have on tap? And what complements a cold refreshing beer during the heat of the season better than good company? Below are a few pub crawls in Denver that you can plan with friends, sign up for and even one that gives back.
Crawl For Cancer
The Crawl For Cancer is an innovative pub crawl with heart as full bodied as the beer it serves up. This organization is driven by one thing: the celebration of life and the determination to raise funds for the cure. With more than 20 crawls across the country, Denver will host its own Crawl For Cancer on August 17. To participate in this pub adventure, you will need 10-12 teammates and a team captain. Teams will crawl to five different bars and be given four pitchers of beer at each location. In addition, there is an after party once the pub crawl is completed that will have live music and, of course, more beer. Team entry is $500 before July 12 and $550 after and includes all of the beer, a t-shirt, the after party and a drive-safe taxi voucher for each participant. When you can enjoy good company, beer and raise money for a cure at the same time, this is one pub crawl bubbling over with purpose and life-saving savvy.
Pedal Hopper Denver
Why wait for someone else to organize a pub crawl for you when you can create your own and pedal around town with an exclusive group of your friends and loved ones? Pedal Hopper Denver provides you with such an adventure, from the planning to execution. The Pedal Hopper is comparable to a party bus-type experience, only this one is powered by a pedaler. You can reserve and rent this licensed and insured party on wheels which holds up to 16 guests, as well as a sober pedaler. It gives you the freedom to pick your locations, your theme and the people that surround you while you crawl – err pedal, from pub to pub. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience entirely customized by you and your guests.
