80-pub bar crawl celebrates Liverpool Capital of Culture

Liverpool is to highlight its pub heritage during its year as European Capital of Culture in 2008 by creating an "around the city in 80 pubs" bar crawl.

According to organisers the Liverpool Culture Company the project will aim to explore and promote those things which make Scouse pubs so special including architecture, music, games, food and beer.

Councillor Warren Bradley, leader of Liverpool City Council and deputy chair of the Liverpool Culture Company, said: "Liverpool is renowned the world over for the character and hospitality of its pubs - they're an integral part of the city's heritage.

"It is an opportunity to look at how pubs have evolved to cater to new tastes and appeal to new audiences, so there's plenty of room for rap and karaoke as well as darts and real ale."

The project will begin in April 2008 with the publication of a guide for the crawl.

A five month programme of activities to highlight Liverpudlian pubs will culminate in September 2008 with a two-week festival, coinciding with the Camra Real Ale Festival.
