It looks like Santa is trading in his milk for some local brews to pair with his cookies this year — and you all (at least those 21+) are invited to join during the Chattanooga Santa Pub Crawl.

Brought to you by the folks at Nooga Nightlife + Chatt Taste, you’ll be able to stop at 30+ destinations across the Scenic City on Saturday, Dec. 16 to sip all night long from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Take a load off and grab your Santa gear, we’re here to tell you everything you need to know. To start, each stop will have drink specials + themed fun for all with free GoCart rides available so you can keep the party going.


This event will benefit Toys for Tots — bring an unwrapped and new toy donation for a $5 discount. Wristbands are also available at full price and half off for designated drivers. Pick up wristbands + drop off toys during:

MAINx24 | City of Creators Vendor + Food Truck Market, 12-4 p.m.

Santa Pub Crawl | Kickoff Party at The Big Chill and Grill, 3-6 p.m. | Sing It or Wing It, 6-7 p.m. | The Moxy, 7-8 p.m.

Bonus: The first 1,000 to register will get a limited edition koozie and entry in special raffle prizes.
