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.
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
Our guest, today on the podcast, is Ross Putnam, co-founder, and general manager at Base Camp Brewing Co. in SE Portland. We’ll be running at Base Camp for our final run of 2018 on November 3. Register now and join us for a remarkable run through the Buckman and Laurelhurst neighborhoods of Portland.
On this episode of the podcast, Ross and I dive into a bit of Base Camp’s history, as well as his peculiar path to co-found the brewery in 2012. During our chat, we tasted four Base Camp beers. Ross also shares what he views the true meaning of Base Camp to be; the causes they care about, what that looks like in their business, and how all of that informs the beer they make and the vibe their going for in the taproom. LISTEN NOW!
Today on the podcast, we’re learning a little bit about one of the most iconic craft beverage, hotel and music venue institutions in Oregon, McMenamins. We’re running at the historic Kennedy School on October 27, and rather than just tell you about that location and brewery, today’s episode is going to be a sort of brief overview of the company, from the perspective of Conners McMenamin, son of Brian McMenamin, one of the two McMenamin brothers who founded the company back in the early 80’s.
Conners and I will talk a bit about his memories of growing up while this great company was being built, as well as the role McMenamins has played in shaping the craft beer world. We’ll also give you a very brief history of the company and talk about just a few McMenamins properties, and some fun tidbits about the company, so listen now!
Today on the podcast, I sit down again with Matt Rasmussen from the Run Oregon Blog to discuss other races you can run this fall to help you stay active even when the weather starts to turn a little crummy. As you know, we’re all about helping people get active. Of course, we want you to show up and do that at our events, but we also want to introduce you to some of the other amazing races taking place around the PAcific Northwest. While the vast majority of the races we mention are in Oregon, the Run Oregon race calendar does list runs from all over.
Today on the podcast, we’re talking all about the brewing and community philosophy at 54-40 Brewing in Washougal Washington with the owner and head brewer, Bolt Minister. We’ll discuss how his history degree turned into a love for craft beer, and how that combined with his love of family and community morphed into his desire to own and operate his own brewery and tap room. We’re running there on October 13 of 2018, and if you want to join us, listen carefully to today’s episode. I share a few promo codes that will be good for free and discounted entries! So keep listening and get your registration clicking fingers ready!
