[Description] NOTE at bottom for those who like beer and socializing but don’t want to hike!!
The most final of details won’t be released until I have time to flesh them out, but here are the general principles:
– 6 highly rated breweries in Orange County
– 16 miles round trip
– finish at a nice restaurant for a sober-up post-march banquet
The idea is to walk a 16 mile loop, stopping at each brewery for a few tasters or a pint (whatever floats your boat). We will start and stop at the brewery I choose that is nearest a quality eatery so when we are done, we will have somewhere to relax, sober up if necessary, and get some grub before calling it a day.
– Old Orange
As spoken by our fearless leader, “let no man cast asunder what has been written this day!”
The only word of warning is that I don’t know a damn thing about public trans in OC, so I can’t give you any good drop-out spots; if you plan to do the hike, you are committing to the whole thing or else you’ll have to provide your own transportation somehow. Bring a cell phone!
Also note, this will be a slightly faster paced walk – not speedwalking by any means, but no loitering or lollygagging; we have to finish before the breweries close up shop!
For those who can’t or don’t want to do the hike part, you are encouraged to meet us at one or more locations along the hike, or just walk to the first one and back with us, or whatever you want. I will be Tweeting and Facebooking our location as we go, so you will have an idea of when we will be at each spot.
