Ooowee Baby, Won’t You Let me Take you on a Beer Cruise?

beershipAnd, yes, we know the 1959 Frankie Ford hit is actually “Sea Cruise.”

But what’s being billed as the first pair of craft beer-themed cruises (the first sets off next month from Mexico to Hawaii) in the industry sets sail from San Pedro next April.

From the press release:

The seven-night California Beer Festival at Sea departs on April 12, 2014 from the Port of Los Angeles and will travel up the California coast with stops in Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Monterey, Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico. Included are specially planned beer and lunch pairings, craft beer round table, and CBF Craft Beer Heaven with Ninkasi Brewing Company and Lagunitas Brewing Company participating. Prices start at $639 per person for an inside stateroom to $1.089 per person for Concierge Class.

Celebrity Cruises have apparently converted several of their Michael’s Clubs that used to serve cognacs and other fine liquors into craft beer venues that serve about 60 microbrews including Celebrity Century, the vessel hosting the California Beer Festival.
