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.


Do you love being active, having fun, and giving back?  We’re looking for Brand Ambassadors to join our Minnesota team for the 2018 season!  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
  • Enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with others

How does it work? As a Brand Ambassador you would help increase the brand presence of Brewery Running Series in Minnesota through volunteering at our events and recruiting additional volunteers and racers, as well as being a key contributor to our social media content.

What’s in it for me? As part of the BRS team, you’d be participating in our mission of being active, having fun, and giving back. Additionally, we’d hook you up with some great swag, craft beer, and race entries for you and your friends!
