do you have a bucket list?
if you do you might have “go on a safari” somewhere on it. most people with bucket lists have that sort of thing on it.
the thing is, safaris are
a.) really expensive,
b.) you have to travel really far to do them.
of course you could always go to a lion country drive through safari down in Florida or new jersey, but let’s face it, driving your honda civic through a bunch of over-medicated farm animals is not really the same as a Hemingway safari.
out in the bush. guides beating the tall grasses, the snows of Kilimanjaro in the distance, the lion roar. the crack of a gunshot. they really don’t do that kind of safari anymore either (and that’s a good thing).
nowadays you go to africa and you try to see the big five. And if you go chances are you’ll see a hundred elephants and water buffalo, maybe a few lions. if you’re really lucky you might see a rhino or a leopard. it’s like they loaded the list with some easy to spot stuff so that everyone got a trophy. Come on.. water buffalo? those are like cows over there. might as well put zebra on the list. we heard from someone who went on safari that zebra burps smell like scotch tape (how they found that out we don’t know- and don’t really want to know).
what if you could do a safari close to home?
what if you could win prizes for completion of the safari?
what if the safari involved beer instead of wild animals?
well you can do all that. we’re having a beer safari through march 17. here’s how it works.
come in to little pub , get a game card, drink dogfish beer, get your card punched. once you’re all punched up enter your card to win prizes.
here’s our safari big 7
we have limited supplies of dogfish 75, raisin d’extra, 120, and old school so only around 30 people will be able to complete the entire safari.
we have kegs of 120 and old school, so that’s a great way to get your card punched for those beers. stay tuned to facebook for when those go on. the contest ends on march 17th so come on in, get your card, and get started. good luck!
