Next month, Boulevard Brewing Co. celebrates 25 years in business. To celebrate its silver anniversary, the brewery is organizing — what else? — a pub crawl through Westport.

The crawl, scheduled for 2-8 p.m. on Nov. 8, is a joint effort by Boulevard and Colorado’s Odell Brewing Company, which also collaborated on Boulevard’s Silver Anniversary Ale. The strong American ale comes out in early November.

Stops on the crawl include the Riot Room, the Foundry, Kelly’s Westport Inn, Harpo’s, Westport Ale House, Preservation Market, Harry’s Bar & Tables, Buzzard Beach and Green Room Burgers & Beer. Boulevard marketing manager Julie Weeks said most of those bars have committed to have Silver Anniversary Ale on tap and offer pints of other Boulevard and Odell beers for $3 each.

Tickets to Boulevard’s 25th anniversary pub crawl cost $12 at Eventbrite and come with a beer passport and commemorative T-shirt — but the T-shirt is guaranteed only if you sign up by Oct. 24. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit a charity agreed upon by Boulevard and Odell, Weeks said.

Tickets, passports and shirts will be available for pickup from 6-9 p.m. on Nov. 7 at Boulevard Brewing Co., 2501 Southwest Boulevard. For more info, check out the pub crawl’s Facebook page.
