On July 17, the inaugural Glier’s Goetta Pub Crawl takes place in advance of the annual Glier's Goettafest on the Newport riverfront, which has pulled a Coachella and is now a two-weekend affair July 25-28 and Aug. 1-4.
The crawl will take over The Banks from 6-10 p.m., starting with a special keg tapping at the Moerlein Lager House.
Moerlein has crafted a special Glier's Goetta-inspired lager for the event, brewed with smoked malt, sea salt, black peppercorn and oats from Glier's.
The rest of the crawl will include beer and chef-prepared goetta specials at stops including the AC Hotel, Jefferson Social, Galla Park and more.
Each "goetta crawler" will check in at the Glier's Goetta mobile kitchen to obtain a menu and a wristband. Each time you visit a different crawl location, get your menu punched. At the end of the crawl, return to the mobile kitchen with your menu to grab a "I Ran the Goetta Gauntlet" T-shirt and register to win Yeti cooler chock full of Glier's Goetta and goetta beer.
Tickets are $10 and proceeds benefit the pediatric-cancer-fighting Dragonfly Foundation.
