These tours kick off when groups meet their guides at The Ginger Man's bar. Founded in 1985, The Ginger Man was one of the country's first multitap specialty bars—and to add to its cultural clout, it's named for the oft-banned J.P. Donleavy novel. On its premises, tour groups sample brews and, weather permitting, enjoy the breeze in the outdoor beer garden. After an hour there, guides lead them to two other nearby pubs, choosing from the Kelvin Arms, Hans Bier Haus, Sherlock's Baker Street Pub, and other local watering holes. For tour times and further info, see the beer crawl page.
