Philly Beer Week 2011: Come join us for a Run (beer, pizza, and live music too)

I've already received RSVPs for my Philly Beer Week event, an event that I haven't even officially mentioned here at The Brew Lounge. To say that I've been quite a bit behind (and quite a bit of a behind!) is an understatement. It's on the official PBW calendar and Dock Street's marketing materials. So it's high time I get the word out around here, y'think?

For the 4th consecutive year, I'll be teaming up with Dock Street to conduct the Philly Beer Run.

This year, we're going back to the 2009 concept and beginning the run in Society Hill at the street named Dock Street and will be ending in West Philly at the brewery/restaurant also named Dock Street.

The date is Sunday, June 12 and we'll gather at 10:30 a.m. at the plaza by the intersection of Dock and Front streets across from Sheraton Hotel and Society Hill Towers.

Participants will need to find their own transportation to and from the beginning and finish points.

Runners will run either solo or in teams of two through the city from point to point collecting "clues" along the way. If you participated in 2009, you'll recall how this works. If not, as the day draws near, I'll share more details. These clues will become important in earning points that can win prizes for you or your team at the finish.

Best of all, there is no fee to participate and the prizes will be awarded at Dock Street just prior to the 2 p.m. kickoff of their annual Music Festival. Those who attended last year can attest to the great music and fun had by all after the run at Dock Street.

An RSVP is required so that proper planning can be made at Dock Street.
