Brewtruc, the mobile taproom aboard a converted schoolbus run by Hugh Schick, is taking people out for spins during both the weekends of Beer Week. It's a good option for those overwhelmed by the myriad options at myriad bars and restaurants on the schedule beginning on Friday, and the deal is simple: $25 gets you a 90 minute shuttle ride and three ten-ounce pours of craft beer, as well as a comfortable ride and guided tour between beer destinations. As Schick puts it, "Jump on the brewtruc, grab yourself a beer, and park yer semi-drunk ass in a leather seat ... En route, we'll tell you what's up, who's sold out, and where the real buzz is." You can opt to pay $50 for the whole evening, or two full loops, as well, and the shuttle is running February 8, 9, 15, and 16 between 8 and 11 p.m. Purchase tickets here, and seriously, if you plan on doing any serious crawling, this is a far better deal than a cab or Uber cab.
