WHAT IS THE BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?/ running. beer. fun.
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.

Ambassadors are passionate about being active, having fun, and giving back!; dedicated team players who are willing to go the extra mile to help our runners have a great experience; and enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with others. As a Brand Ambassador you would volunteer at our events, spread the word about BRS, and help recruit additional volunteers and participants. As part of the BRS team, we’d hook you up with some great swag, craft beer, and race entries for you and your friends!
VOLUNTEER AT OUR EVENTS!
Every event we need a group of volunteers to help check-in participants, setup, cheer along the running course, and other misc details! Volunteers get rewarded with smiles from our participants, Beer, and cheers! Time commitment is 1hr prior to the start of the run, for a 2hr duration total.
