Drink Like A Thirsty Swagman

Not everyone can drink in one-thousand bars in a single year, and lord knows I will never be able to do it again. But that doesn't mean you can't do some legendary drinking. A fellow I ran across via Facebook runs some tours that involve some pretty legendary drinking in some legendary places. The fellow's name is Kenneth Hart and his Tour/Drinking company is Thirsty Swagman. As you may guess from the name, it is based in Australia. Drinking beer with Australians is always a risky business. Kind of like drinking Vodka with Russians.

Anyway, he has an upcoming tour in August, the Ale Of Man tour, that looks like fun. Ireland, Scotland, the U.K. A few others scheduled for next year as well in Asia and Spain. You might want to check them out.

You can find all the information you need the Thirsty Swagman website which you can access by clicking on Swagman Pubcrawls under My Favorite Links to the right, just under the picture of the Mysterious Chinese Woman.

Hope you and yours are all doing well, Dan. Keep us posted. I really miss your musings - from Brooklyn to Minnesota to Mexico, pig roasts, street fests and an afternoon drink or two down at the corner bar with friends.

I do plan on posting more often. Glad to see there are some long-time followers.

Oh, there are long-time followers! I found your blog back in 2008 when I was planning a five-borough pub crawl (I live in DC). I think someone was interviewing you and asked for your favorite bar in each borough, so that was my plan. (I think it took 12 hours but that's because I decided to do it "linearly," without doubling back, which made it a much longer circuit.) I then started following your blog. You are living the dream!

Last year I again did a five-borough crawl and this time I brought my mom along. Happy times.
