The 50 State USA Bar Crawl Challenge (21 August-5 September 2020)
17 Days, 50 States, 12 Adventurers and a few mysterious beers along the way...
Are you searching for the ultimate road trip? Then join us for the ultimate bar crawl, an epic 8,000 mile two week adventure through small town USA visiting an amazing selection of small breweries, dive bars and pubs in every US state including Hawaii and Alaska!
Our travels will see us ditching the big city crowds as we explore the most charming off the beaten path towns that America has to offer. We will be searching for the weird and the wonderful, inquisitive friendly locals, old diners, cheap beer and a way of life that hasn't changed for decades. Our adventure will be as spontaneous as possible with perfect playlists and nothing to worry about except where the next bar is located. And best of all? You won’t know what bar or brewery we’re going to next until you get there. It could be a biker bar and then onto a weird themed sports bar. It's really going to be a truly mysterious journey as we discover the best and weirdest drinking spots in the USA! Expect a bit of media coverage along the way too…
This is a perfect tour for beer lovers, the adventurous, lovers of the classic road trips as well thosewho don't have much holiday time and need to cram as much as possible into a short vacation.

Although this trip is described a 'Pub Crawl Tour' it doesn't mean that you have to drink alcohol every day of our journey.
On each stage of the trip we will recommend local tipples including soft drinks and alcohol free cocktails.
If you choose to drink you need to know your limits. The UK Chief Medical Officers' low risk guidelines suggests 14 units of alcohol a week for both men and women. This is equivalent to 6 pints of beer, 6 glasses of wine or 14 shots of spirits.
