WHAT IS THE BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?/ running. beer. fun.
The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – to be active, drink beer, and support their community. It 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.
Participants walk/jog/run a 5k-ish course 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. A portion of all proceeds goes to benefit the Oregon Brewshed Alliance and the Portland Parks Foundation. Drew and Nathan are thrilled to partner with several great craft breweries and other partners during our 2017 seasons.
EVENTS & MARKETING – OR 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.
EVENTS & MARKETING – OR 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, playing with his twin daughters, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking. He loves dark beer, dark chocolate, and dark coffee.
GIVE BACK / support the community you love.
We love giving back to our local community and partnering with great organizations. A portion of all proceeds go to benefit these Oregon non-profits.
Portland Parks Foundation
Since many of our events run through parts of Portland’s park system, what they do is amazing! The Portland Parks Foundation mobilizes financial and popular support to ensure a thriving and accessible park system for a healthy Portland. They accomplish this mission through delivering leadership, partnership and funding that advances a commitment to excellence, accessibility and good stewardship of our parks. Their primary partner is Portland Parks & Recreation.
Oregon Brewshed Alliance
An outreach initiative of Oregon Wild, 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.
Media & Press
Running and beer are perfect partners. In this podcast episode, I talk with Jeff Seibel, the unlikely creator of Ghost Runners Brewery, a brewery built on the idea that we should reward ourselves when we play hard, and that reward should be really good high-quality craft beer.read more
