The mining and railroad boom brought immigrants to Utah from around the world. With them they brought their well-established drinking habits. Rather than lose money to outsiders by importing beer, the first "buy local" movement was initiated by men with a knack for brewing beer. Through the past year, we've enjoyed sharing this history with you, and want to have some more fun by going on an epic pub crawl. Starting with the three we have seen over the past year, and finishing with the three we're featuring now, we invite you on the Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl!
On the Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl, Utah Heritage Foundation tells the history of beer in Utah and takes you into not just three, but six of Utah's most well-known watering holes, with a special Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl pint glass included with your registration!

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I get when I register for the Historic Pub Crawl?
You receive a guided, walking tour to six downtown Salt Lake City establishments, a limited edition Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl pint glass, and a tour brochure that provides a brief history of beer in Utah and on each location. No drinks are included with your registration. Drink or food purchases, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, are not required to participate in the crawl.
Where do I show up? What pubs are on the Historic Pub Crawl?
To attend the Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl, you may register in advance or you may purchase tickets at our headquarters on the day of the Crawl. After registering, you will be emailed the location of the meet-up/check-in. While we are not revealing the pubs on the tour in advance, they are all in downtown Salt Lake City, between 50 East and Main and 100 South and 400 South.
How do I get there, around, and back?
The Historic Pub Crawl is a walking tour of six establishments, within walking distance in downtown Salt Lake City. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the crawl. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you drink responsibly and utilize public transportation via UTA Trax and buses that are convenient to the crawl stops; after you register, you will know where the stop is and how to arrange transportation.
Is there an age requirement?
You must be 21 years old or older with a valid ID or Passport to participate in this event. If you are not 21 and you sign up for the tour but are denied entry to any of the establishments, you will not receive a refund.
Can we bring our own alcoholic beverages or carry cocktails from bar to bar?
No outside alcohol is permitted and no alcoholic beverages may leave the establishments.
What if my plans change?
Because this is a one-time special event, we will not issue refunds for any reason. Also, the Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl is an all-weather, rain-or-shine, warm-or-cold event; dress appropriate for the weather. Utah Heritage Foundation also cannot guarantee that any or all establishments on the tour are ADA accessible.
