A Very U.S. Open Redhook Putt Putt Golf Pub Crawl Sequel

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

Here are a few snapshots from yesterday’s action:
