MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- All aboard! Milwaukee's streetcar, The Hop, will host its first 'Hops and Stops" pub crawl on Saturday, April 4 from 12-5 p.m. 

The Hop announced a new partnership with Beechwood Sales and Service for the inaugural event. 

The Hops and Stops pub crawl will take place along the streetcar route, making stops at eight bars and restaurants along the way offering food and beverage specials.

“This partnership is a fantastic opportunity for us to introduce streetcar riders to the outstanding downtown bars and Wisconsin craft breweries that make our city special while also bringing a new audience on board The Hop to learn how easy it is to connect with great downtown entertainment destinations via the streetcar,” said Dave Cartwright in a news release, Director of Sales and Marketing at Beechwood Sales and Service. “We’re looking forward to a fun afternoon on board The Hop and in many of our great partner bars and restaurants along the route.”

Participants will be able to get a passport at any of the participating locations and then collect stamps for each stop they visit -- including a stamp for riding the streetcar. Completed passports can be submitted at any participating location for the chance to win great prize packages donated by the breweries.

To celebrate the occasion, the streetcars have gotten a facelift featuring beer and logos of each participating Wisconsin-based craft brewery: 3 Sheeps, Central Waters, Good City, Hinterland, Milwaukee Brewing, New Glarus and Third Space. 

Participating bars and restaurants in the inaugural “Hops and Stops” event include Café Benelux, County Clare, East Town Kitchen and Bar, My Office, Oak & Shield Gaming Pub, St. Paul Fish Company Tiki Bar, The Wicked Hop and Y-Not II Tavern.
