Have you ever wanted to travel the open seas while listening to music and drinking copious amounts of craft beer? Well, now there is a cruise specifically designed for you.
Dubbed The Lebrewski Cruise, the voyage was brought together thanks to music cruise company On the Blue, and will feature the top names in the craft beer industry and some of the most popular bands in the world.
Passengers will be treated to daily craft beer tastings, food and beer pairings, meet and greets with bands and brewers, home brewing workshops, concerts, beer-related activities and events dedicated to the cruise’s namesake, The Big Lebowski.
The voyage will depart from Miami on March 1, 2016, and will embark on a four-day journey through several islands in the Bahamas. The journey will take place on the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship, which holds 2,394 passengers.
The cruise will be hosted by brewmaster and musician Kyle Hollingsworth, and it will feature an eclectic mix of beer makers and musical acts. Guests will be able to meet and converse with brewery representatives like Stone Brewing Company’s Jeremy Moynier, Boulder Beer Company’s Jeff Brown, Cigar City Brewing’s Justin Clark and Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Ron Lindenbusch.
With a unique mixture of brewers and beer styles, it fits that the music being played throughout the cruise should represent several different genres. Bands such as O.A.R, Molly Hatchet, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, The Samples, Jared & The Mill, Blackfoot (featuring Rickey Medlocke of Lynyrd Skynyrd) and more will be playing on one of the five stages set up throughout the ship for this journey.
For those looking to take advantage of the early-bird discounts, passengers who book by Wednesday, Sept. 30 will be eligible for rates starting as low as $499 per person. More information can be found at The Lebrewski Cruise’s official website.
