7 ways to celebrate Craft Beer Week

Drink beer, stay active

It’s officially American Craft Beer Week, May 11-17, 2015. Here are seven ways to celebrate all week long across the country, from sea to shining sea. 



Sign up for the Philly 10K road race through the heart of Philadelphia, which opens for registration today. The popular race (the site keeps crashing from registration traffic) features a Bibs & Beers Pick-Up Party plus finish line beer courtesy of Philadelphia Brewing Company.

Run to any of the 3,400 small, independent craft brewers in the country and then check in on Untappd to unlock the American Craft Beer Week (2015) badge. OK, you don’t actually have to run there to get the badge, but it makes it more rewarding.

Head to the famous Shoes and Brews in Longmont, Colorado for their Thursday night social runs. This week partners with Upslope, and you can also run an 800 meter and the cost of your next pint is your time.

To cap off the week, join the Minnesota Brewery Running Series at Indeed Brewing Co for a fun-run 5k throughout the surrounding neighborhood & parks. All participants receive a craft brew from Indeed and get to take home a collectors pint glass or “seasonal swag item.”
