Thirsty Swagman is a tour operator specializing in pub-themed tours.

In 2008, the company started offering an "Around the world" pub crawl that visits 60 bars in 11 cities in 28 days.[1][2][3] According to a November 2007 article by United Press International, the Australian Medical Association called the tour plans "dangerous and irresponsible."[2][3] The round-the-world pub tour is scheduled to run again in 2015.[4]

In 2011, the company announced plans to offer beer tasting on sub-orbital spaceflights[5][6][7] and zero gravity flights.

The company was founded by Kenneth Hart in April 2007, and is based in Perth, Western Australia.[8] with a subsidiary in Weil am Rhein, Germany.
