The 12 Bars of Christmas

Cigar City Cider & Mead, 1812 N. 15th St., Tampa.

Dec. 15, 6 p.m.-midnight. $17 in advance, $20 day of.


The 12 Bars of Christmas started, as many of one's greatest ideas do, during a night of drinking. This seasonal pub crawl is now in its 20th year, and remains a festive tradition that locals observe by hitting up 12 watering holes around Ybor City — all while spreading do-goodery.

On Saturday, Dec. 15, net proceeds from the hop benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which received $1,313 from the 12 Bars of Christmas in 2017.

The fun kicks off at 6 p.m. at Cigar City Cider & Mead, followed by Rock Brothers Brewing. Register online.
