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 and Dollar For Portland.


2019 will be the fourth year Drew and Nathan have been enjoying beer run fun in Oregon. Join us!

Our Team


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. 25+ years later, he’s still going. When he’s not running, he enjoys exploring the city with his son, reading books with his daughters, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking. He loves lite beer, dark chocolate, and strong 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.

Oregon Brewshed Alliance

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.


Dollar For Portland

Dollar For Portland helps local families pay overwhelming medical expenses with the power of a community that gives just $1 a month. 100% of every dollar goes directly to families in need. Sign up today


Life Vest Inside

Life Vest Inside is a 5013 non-profit grassroots organization based in New York City whose mission is to inspire, empower and educate people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. We’re partnering with the local chapter in Vancouver, WA.



We’re so thankful to be joined by some amazing local companies!

The People and Beer of Eastern Oregon

Today on the podcast, you’ll get to hear a few clips from participants, volunteers, partners, and the founder and president of our local nonprofit Made to Thrive. We’ve been working with local nonprofits at several of our events outside of the Portland metro area, and are excited to further our mission of being active, having fun, and giving back.

A Quick Review of the Food, Beer, and Community at Victor-23 Brewing

We recently sent two scouts ahead to review of the food and beer at Victor 23 Craft Brewery in Vancouver. (spoiler, it’s amazing!) We’re running there on August 10, 2019. Since this is one of our new brewery partners this year, we thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about them. A sort of “pre-run-party” if you will. Check it out then register to run with us on 8/10!

A Quick Review of the Food and Beer at Backwoods Brewing in the Pearl

I recently asked two of our amazing regular volunteers, JJ Grinvalds and Brittany Beem, to share a review of the food and beer at Backwoods Brewing in the Pearl. We’re running there for our FINAL event of the spring 2019 season. Since this is a relatively new brewery in Portland, we thought it would be good to learn just a bit more. A sort of “pre-run-party” if you will. They self describe as, “just a couple of Run-Loving, Beer-Drinking, Food-Eating PNWesterners with years of eating and drinking experience, but no formal training on how to talk about it.” Enjoy!
