Here are some photos from our 2002 Classic City Pub Crawl...
The Bass and Guinness were tasting sweet at
Classic City Saloon on that faithful night. 
Heavy rain came down all day and stopped just in
time for our Classic City Pub Crawl.
Joanne, Mark, Dean, and everyone else who traveled
 together in our group enjoyed dinner and a rich,
chewy Bock beer at Athens' only
brewpub -- Copper Creek Brewing Company.
Owen (center) gave the camera up to mug for this photo
over a pint of Fullers ESB at the Globe.  The Globe
is an extremely pleasant bar at the corner of
Clayton and Lumpkin Streets in Athens.
Joanne, Martha, and Mark were happy that
although participating pubs were only asked
o donate half pints, most of the pubs thankfully gave
us full 16 oz. pints.  Wow!
What can you say about lovable Larry Johnson?!
 Even the cute bartenders all want their picture taken with him.
Jeff and Martha  
Here are Jeff and Martha pausing to enjoy their ale at the Globe.

Pasha, Larry and Thel are quite pleased at the intense
flavor of Terrapin RyePA on draft at Wild Wing Cafe. 
Terrapin is a new microbrewery that is starting
production in Athens, GA.
You can't go into the famous Georgia Bar
without raiding the free popcorn machine!
As always, Tiffany at Wild Wing was happy to p
our pints from their excellent draft beer selection.
Our last two stops of the night were the patio at
Athens Steam Company pub (above) and Molly O'Shea's. 
Everyone had a marvelous time and all are looking
forward to next year's trek through the best pubs of Athens.
