WHAT IS THE COLORADO BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?
WHO WE ARE: Colorado Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Colorado breweries. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great outdoors and the great craft beer that Colorado has to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music!
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT: Our motto = be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits, In 2019, we happily partnered with more than 10 Colorado non-profit organizations, and we are very proud that the Colorado Brewery Running Series has so far donated over $25,000 to local non-profits!
WHAT’S NEXT: In our four years here in Colorado, we have hosted over 80 events at nearly 60 different Colorado breweries, with over 10,000 runners completing our courses. As word-of-mouth spreads and awareness continues to grow, we are looking forward to 2020 being our biggest, best, and most brewtiful year yet!

2020 PARTNERS & SPONSORS
The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. Turns out, a few thousand other locals share those same interests! A few years and tens of thousands of beers and miles later, they decided to branch out.
The Colorado Brewery Running Series is locally owned and operated by Denver resident – Brady Archer. He is the mastermind behind the Colorado schedule and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
2020 will be the FIFTH year that runners have been enjoying beer run fun as part of the Brewery Running Series in almost every corner of Colorado.
Over 80 events and 50 Colorado breweries and counting!!
