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

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!

Inside this post, is a recap of our winter season, a few updates about what we’ve been up to this past month, a promo code, and more!
