Saint Arnold – Pub Crawl, AHA Rally, Austin Pub Crawl and MORE!
WHY TO HAVE SAINT ARNOLD ON HAND THIS WEEKEND IF YOU ARE ROOTING FOR THE SAINTS?
What better beer to show your team allegiance than a saintly beer like Saint Arnold! Plus we have as many people from New Orleans living in our area as New Orleans does. We’ve noticed on our tours a predominance of people wearing their black and gold jerseys.
Our Amber Ale and Brown Ale are great additions to gumbo and jambalaya as evidenced by the them at our One Pot Showdown this past weekend where shouts of “Who Dat?” could be heard coming from the decoratively festooned tents.
WHY HAVE SAINT ARNOLD ON HAND THIS WEEKEND IF YOU ARE ROOTING FOR THE COLTS?
It’s dang good beer.
Hope everybody enjoys the Soup or Bole this weekend!
SPRING BOCK PUB CRAWL IN THE HEIGHTS THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5
We will again utilize our “open house” schedule for the first 3 stops. This means that we will be signing tickets at all of the first three stops for three hours so you can enjoy a beer at each one with only a third of the people crammed into each establishment. You will get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first. But, VERY IMPORTANT, we will only be handing out the tickets between 6 PM and 7 PM. Thus, you still need to start between 6 and 7. Then, at 9 PM, everybody will gather at one final stop and that is where we will award the glasses. The prize for making all four stops will be our pub crawl or Spring Bock pint glass. We will have a large but limited supply of glasses. And as always, designated drivers are both eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! So here is the layout and our vague directions:
The first three stops:
All three will be located at the intersection of White Oak and Studewood. The stops will be on the Northwest, Southwest and Southeast corners.
The final stop:
At 9:00 we’ll head west about 0.2 miles down White Oak for the final stop.
Remember that cash is helpful, be kind to your waitstaff, and always, always appear in public enjoying a Saint Arnold. We hold those that arrange for transportation to and from or use designated drivers in the highest regard!
