Feet First and Latona Pub Toast Earth Day with the Great Beer Hike
Seattle- For the fourth year in a row, Latona Pub continues the tradition of showcasing a selection of craft beers transported by foot, bike, and sailboat from local breweries to the Green Lake area pub during the week leading up to Earth Day. The sustainable beer transportation events will culminate in a celebration at the pub on Sunday, April 20.
Volunteers from Feet First will deliver the final keg—Hand Truckin’ Amber Ale—after a 10 mile walk from Two Beers Brewery in SODO to Latona Pub in Green Lake. A midway stop at Zeeks Pizza in Belltown for lunch will keep participants’ energy and spirits high.
WHAT: An Earth Day celebration featuring Hand Truckin’ Amber Ale, a special edition draft beer brewed in tribute to people powered beer transportation. Volunteers will transport the ale 10 miles on foot in order to make this a zero-carbon event. The event will benefit Feet First, a non-profit organization working to make Washington more walkable.
