Co-founders Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe joined forces to start a series of events combining their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. Turns out, a few thousand other MN locals share those same interests! Since their inaugural event at Fulton Brewery in 2012, the structure remains the same. Participants walk / jog / run a 5k course and then drink beer. It’s that simple! Everyone is invited to enjoy the day’s entertainment: live music, food trucks, giveaways and activities with partners and sponsors, and all finishers get a FREE craft brew and collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item. Icing on the cake? A portion of all proceeds goes to benefit local non-profits. Nate and Morgan are thrilled to partner with even more great craft breweries this year and expand the series throughout the state.
We love giving back to our local community and partnering with great organizations. A portion of all proceeds go to benefit these MN non-profits:
“My husband and I LOVE the MN Brewery Running Series!!”
“This was my third MN brewery series run and would definitely do it again. The staff are enthusiastic, the shirts are awesome, and the beer was an added bonus!”
“Very fun energetic people putting the race on. It was my first of the series and I will do another! Please have more deals for them!”
“We were greeted right away, the bar was open and friendly and expecting the traffic. They held onto the glasses as promised until we were ready to leave. Great group of outdoor running people, nice! Well laid out with people marking turns. Loved it.”
“Staff in restaurant and the volunteers were so kind! I had such a great time! Love my glass! Loved that you had a small sheet of paper with the route on it! Thank you:)”
“Loved it! Beautiful venue, grat beer, fun music and helpful, CHEERFUL volunteers. Thank you and we will do another! Wearing my shirt today!”
