Join us for a very special event – LEAP BEER SNOW DASH between Dual Citizen Brewing Co and The Lab Brewery + Pilot Facility on Saturday, February 29 @ 11AM.

These two taprooms border our fine Twin Cities and are less than 1/2 mile apart. That + the fact that 2020 is a leap year + the fact that year rhymes with beer is all the reason we need to celebrate!

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.

JOIN OUR BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM!

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!
