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!

Our Team

DREW KLINSING

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 FREEBURG

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.

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.

Humble, Respectful, Celebratory Beer with DJ Moxley from Grixsen Brewing (podast)

Today on the podcast, our guest is D.J. Moxley, the brewmaster and one of the owners at Grixsen Brewing. Grixsen Brewing is located at 10th and Division in Southeast Portland, and we’ll be running there on July 28, 2018. In this episode, we chat about DJ’s journey to becoming a brewer shortly after high school, and how he has turned his hobby into a thriving business. We’ll unpack the three words he uses to describe Grixsen (humble, respectful, celebratory), and discuss what makes them unique in their approach to creating great beer. He also tells me a few ways Grixsen likes to give back to the community. Listen to the WHOLE episode because we share two promo codes somewhere in the middle for discounts to the Grixsen run.

Highlights from the 2018 Oregon Brewshed Alliance Brewfest (podcast)

This episode of the podcast was recorded live at the 3rd Annual Oregon Brewshed Alliance Brewfest on May 16th, 2018. We had a table at the event where everyone was there to celebrate “Oregon craft brews and the forest watersheds that make them possible!” Hosted by Brewshed® Partner McMenamins Kennedy School, over 30 local Oregon breweries and other businesses poured great brews and donated great raffle prizes for this great cause. We talked to several of the brewery reps, Marielle Cowden, (who heads the Alliance), as well as some volunteers and other partners. It’s a quirky little episode, but we think it will give you a fun sense for the event.
