KQED MonsterI wrote about the Great KQED San Francisco Pub Crawl this morning in my column. Also did a slide show, which you can find here.

A bit of background. KQED, the public radio-tv station in San Francisco asked me to put together a pub crawl. The crawl was sold on KQED’s online auction. Three Silicon Valley couples were the winning bidders.

We did the crawl on Dec. 8.

Here are the stops we made on the crawl

    Gee Bruce, that was nasty. What;s a local beer to you? Mine’s Pliny the Elder, which we consumed on that pub crawl, along with a couple of dozen others, all but one or two made within 30 miles of the crawl.
