Back in June, Charleston’s Palmetto and COAST breweries joined together to celebrate the passage of the Pint Law with an event dubbed Pint Pedal. The event was a blend of biking, drinking, community and all-around revelry, and on November 2, the breweries will be doing it again.
Pint Pedal 2: The Mustache Ride will be similar to the inaugural event. The ride begins at Palmetto, traveling a leisurely 5 miles to COAST for beer and food. Then it’s back to Palmetto for more drinking and fun. The 10-mile round trip runs from 11 AM to 3 PM.
Tickets are $5 and you must be 21 to participate. Proceeds will support Movember and Team ‘Creepy is the New Black.’ Mustache-themed costumes are encouraged. The event is already more than halfway sold out, so get your tickets here while you still can.
