This Halloween Sunday October 31st the SE 28th street neighborhood host to numerous bars and restaurants gets its own Pub Crawl, Night of the Living Ales celebrating the great beer bars that line a short area from Glisan to Ankeny along 28th.
Night of the Living Ales offers a halloween event for adults who want to have a good time without the hoopla of various gigantic parties/shows in PDX. NotLA also has something for the discerning beer geeks of Beervana with special rare and even exclusive beers from some of Oregon's best breweries like Upright Brewing, Double Mountain Brewing and Ninkasi Brewing plus a beer made by event organizers specifically for the crawl that will likely only be on tap Halloween, a 10 gallon batch of Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout!
Beer O' Clock host Lisa Morrison, the Beer Goddess, will be leading the 28th Street Pub Crawl -- a guided drinking tour through some of the best watering holes along 28th street beginning with Migration Brewing, then heading to Spints Alehouse, Beulahland and Coalition Brewing. At each stop a different themed costume contest will be held to give everyone a chance to win swag from various breweries and pubs as well as other giveaways. Each location will offer a Happy Hour drink menu with exclusive beers and/or cocktails to members of the crawl with wristband purchase for $5 available at any of the participating bars right now or on the day of the crawl, or for $5.50 via paypal on the website:
