Actual Brewing Co. Offers Pokemon, Beer Safari

Actual Brewing Co. Beer Connoisseur

You knew it was coming. Just a matter of time. Craft beer stays on top of trends, and nothing is trending harder than the virtual quest to be the very best, like no one ever was.

For those without skin in the pocket monster acquisition game, we're talking about Pokemon Go, an app that has shattered records for frequency of downloads, use, and pulled humanity one step further into the vortex of meta-reality. Columbus, Ohio-based The Actual Brewing Company has announced its inaugural Pokemon Beer Safari. The brewery will charter a bus Sunday from 6 P.M. to 9 P.M. for wannabe Poké-trainers.

The itinerary?

In the words of the brewery: "The adventure begins at Actual Brewing's east side production facility, where PokéTrainers catch a chartered bus powered up with Actual beer. On this 3 hour tour, we'll visit intriguing PokéStops, hunt for elusive monsters, and act like this is all perfectly normal. There may be a chance to catch a rare beer in the wild. Beers on the bus are included in purchase price. Must be 21+ to attend."
