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!

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 episode of the podcast, Nathan sits down for a chat with the co-owner of Portland Running Company, and co-organizer of the 2018 Portland Marathon, Dave Harkin. In this episode, we talk about what runners can expect from the new and improved “PORTLANDATHON” a few of the new things with the 2018 race (like Rogue beer and HIT MACHINE at the finish line), as well as some general training tips. Listen now.
Today on the podcast, I sit down for a chat with John Frausto, one of the Pub Managers at Fort George Brewery in Astoria Oregon. In our conversation, John and I talk all about the ethos and culture of Fort George Brewery. As best I can tell, they’re really only about two things; the community and the beer. Everything else is secondary. We talk about what they’re doing to invest in the community of people at the brewery, which includes everyone from their team, residents of Astoria who frequent this fine establishment, as well as the thousands of tourists from all over the world who stop in for a beer. And of course anyone lucky enough to live in the radius where Fort George Beer is distributed. You might just learn a thing or two, so stick around.
It’s summer in Oregon, which is as beautiful as always! We’re in the middle of our summer running series, which is a good time for a little reminder about the importance of staying adequately hydrated. 2018 is going in the books as it breaks records for the hottest temperatures ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere. Dehydration can strike anyone at any age but senior citizens and children have an increased risk. Even those of us who have been running for years aren’t any less likely to become dehydrated. Here are a few quick tips, and an infographic about what happens if you’re not properly hydrated.
Today on the podcast, we’re talking all about Laurelwood Brewing. We’ll be running there on August 11, 2018, for the third year in a row, and hope you’ll join us! Laurelwood caters to families, and as you’ll hear from co-founder and co-owner Mike Dekalb, that was 100% intentional, and part of the driving motivation to open the brewpub in the first place. But Laurelwood isn’t only about dinosaurs, Little Tikes play kitchens, and being cool about continually cleaning up ketchup explosions. They also serve delicious food and award-winning beers. We’ll dive into some of that, and talk about the new beer they have on tap, with their brand new brewmaster, Eric Ebel. While Eric is new to this position, he’s been at Laurelwood for four years and was eager to talk about what they’re brewing.
