519 Events & Promotions is throwing a launch party for Dresden’s Sod Buster Brewing Company, and inviting guests to explore the 12 Bars of Christmas in Downtown Chatham on Friday, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Modeled after the popular pub crawl concept in cities such as London and Toronto, the DT Chatham 12 Bars of Christmas allows guests to discover unique places to grab a drink in the downtown core, 519 officials said.
The self-guided crawl starts at the Capitol Theatre in the Main Street Lounge where guests will enjoy a free sample of Sod Buster beer, mingle with other guests at a Christmas-themed party, and then make their way through downtown Chatham.
Participants will visit locations such as Frendz, the Elephant’s Nest, and Sons of Kent. Less well-known locations serving drinks will also be included such as the Kent Club on King Street, Sam’s Percolator, and Glitter’s Fun Eatery.
Organizers believe that shopping locally can also be extended to entertainment. The event features businesses located within Chatham-Kent, highlighting not only their drink selections, but also their venues, menus, and atmospheres.
Tickets are $25 per person and include entry into the Sod Buster Launch Party, a free sample of beer, a swag bag with commemorative pin, and more.
Tickets can be purchased on Event Brite, Facebook, and in-person at the event.
