Legacy Business Pub Crawl


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.

Frequently Asked Questions

pintglasswebWhat do I get when I register for the Historic Pub Crawl?
You receive a guided, walking history tour of three downtown Salt Lake City establishments.  No food or drink is included with your registration.  Drink 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 Historic Pub Crawl, you must register in advance.   After registering, you will be emailed the location of the meet-up/first stop.  While we are not revealing the pubs on the tour, they are all in lower downtown Salt Lake City, within 1-2 blocks of each other.

When should I register?  Do you sell out?
The Historic Pub Crawl has been an overwhelming success and very popular.  We have sold out almost all of our crawls, so we encourage those interested in purchasing tickets get them at least a few days in advance.  The crawls are limited to 20 people per crawl.

How do I get there, around, and back?


The Historic Pub Crawl is a walking tour of three establishments, within 1-2 blocks of each other in south 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?
We do not provide refunds. The Pub Crawl is an all-weather, rain-or-shine, warm-or-cold event; dress appropriate to the weather.
