WHAT IS THE BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?
The Oregon Brewery Running Series is about inspiring Oregonians to Get Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host untimed family-friendly 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.
Participants walk or run 3.1 miles, then drink beer! Everyone is invited to enjoy the day’s entertainment: live music, great food, giveaways and activities with partners and sponsors. Everyone receives a craft brew, and a collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item. 10% of our proceeds help support our nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside. Drew and Nathan are thrilled to partner with several great craft breweries and other local partners during our 2018 season.
A Brief History
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. The idea took off, and 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.
When two friends, who were connected to the series, relocated within a year of each other to Portland, they all decided to see if the Rose City, a craft beer and running oasis already, would be a good place to reproduce what they experienced in Minneapolis.
2018 will be the third year Drew and Nathan have been enjoying beer run fun in Oregon. Join us!
Miles Run in 2017
Pints Drank in 2017
A novice at so many things, soccer, basketball, baseball, stand up paddle boarding, camping…you get the picture. One thing I am not a novice at is the Pacific Northwest, we love living in the Portland area and exploring all there is to offer especially the breweries that saturate our great area.
Nathan started running when he was 14. 20+ years later, he’s still going. When he’s not running, he enjoys exploring the city with his son, reading books with his twin daughters, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking. He loves dark beer, dark chocolate, and dark coffee.
Support the Community you Love!
Giving back to our community and supporting great causes is part of who we are. 10% of our proceeds help support these non-profit organizations.
The Oregon Brewshed® Alliance is a coalition of Oregon brewers, brewing community partners, and conservationists who understand the value of clean water and protected forest watersheds. Beer is over 90% water after all, and that water is a product of the land that it flows through. Alliance members work together to educate the craft beer drinking community about protected watersheds and their essential role in Oregon’s celebrated craft brewing industry.
Latest Podcast Episodes & Blog Posts
In today’s show, Nathan talks with the co-founder and head cider maker at Portland Cider Company, Jeff Parrish. They met up at the Portland Cider House on Hawthorne Blvd in south-east Portland to talk all things cider. That location is best described as a pub and has a rustic farmhouse vibe to it, with lots of unfinished wood, and interesting art on the walls. They discuss Jeff’s cidery journey, what he’s learned along the way, new stuff they have coming out, our run on February 10, and more! Also, listen carefully for a unique promo code!
Happy New Year! Today on the show, I’m talking with Matt Rasmussen from the Run Oregon Blog. Matt is an expert when it comes to finding races around Oregon and SW Washington.

We’d love it if you participated in ALL of our 2018 brewery running series events, but that still leaves a whole bunch of free weekends. Today on the podcast, Matt and Nathan talk about which races are on their calendars, and a few others worth checking out.
