Antique Roadshow La Mesa Bar crawl

11/10 1pm

Join Thorn Brewing, Latchkey Brewing, Second Chance Brewing, and Burning Beard Brewery as we walk the streets of La Mesa looking for delicious local craft beer, and special one of a kind antiques!


  • Event starts at 1pm at The Hills. If you want to show up earlier to eat something, probably a half decent idea.
  • The staff at each place will decide how we win prizes.
  • Teams of 5 for each brewery.
  • Teams must wear shirts of the respective breweries they’re representing. This will help us herd cats.
  • Probably a good idea to bring backpacks/bags for treasures/alley beers.
  • Around 2pm we’ll walk or uber down to Centifonti’s
  • Centifonti’s, you guys, they have a boot. And Ice Cream.
  • Curbside is right next door!
  • Head to Reanimated Records to buy things that we don’t really need, but actually like totally do. We collaborated with them on a record bag for the day.
  • Stroll leisurely to Hoffers. Each team needs to buy at least one cigar. They will award us prizes based on our taste.
  • Walk to the Riviera and drink some alley beers. Can take an Uber, but then alley beers in parking lot
  • Hopefully we’re there by 6. Hopefully.
  • Big Nate has offered to be our Antique Assessor, waiting on confirmation for that. If he can’t, I’ll ask Throop. Each team will go up and he will determine the value/probably talk a lot of shit. It’ll be great!
  • Eat steaks, hot wings, drink martinis.
  • Celebrate they fact that we made it out of Beer Week alive.
