Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. Swiss bartender Josh Hill, now, about to become the 2015 U.S. Open Redhook Putt Putt Golf Pub Crawl champion. It looks like a mirac… It has hit the cans! It has hit the cans! It has hit the cans!
Hill wasn’t the only pub golfer not to score a hole-in-one in Redhook’s indoor miniature golf contest at three Tacoma pubs yesterday. Hill missed the hole-in-one on The Swiss Restaurant & Pub course. Many others missed the prize at the other two spots — Rock The Dock Pub & Grill and The Valley. This isn’t a cakewalk.
Redhook Ale Brewery — by far the largest brewery in Washington state with more than 4.6 million gallons, or 149,000 barrels of beer in 2013 — hosts day two of its two-day pub crawl/putt-putt golf course this afternoon. Customers will receive three chances to putt a hole-in-one on custom miniature golf hole courses with each Redhook beer purchased.
Here are the fairways and starting times for today’s 2015 U.S. Open Redhook Putt Putt Golf Pub Crawl:
4:30-5:30 p.m.: The Cloverleaf (ESB draft), 6430 Sixth Ave., Tacoma
5:30-6:30 p.m.: Pint Defiance. Specialty Beers & Taproom (Big Ballard IIPA), 2049 Mildred St. W., Tacoma
