There is no shortage of ways to earn your beer throughout the week at the West Sixth Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky.

Monday nights are for the cycling club.

Tuesday nights are for the running club.

Wednesday nights are for yoga.

And every night is for beer.

The fun runs, cycling club and yoga classes are all offered for free, and all are highly popular in the community. As many as 300 people show up for the weekly runs in the summer, cycling draws a big regular group and spots fill up quickly at yoga.

Beyond the community aspect, there are extra incentives for showing up to sweat, including free post-run pretzels and credits that can earn you shirts or water bottles.

For more info, you can find the yoga, cycling and running clubs on Facebook.

Read up on the brewery’s stouts, IPAs, lemongrass wheat beers and more on their website.

    Thanks for the Lexington shout-out! West Sixth is a great local business offering up cool initiatives such as the exercise + beer nights and they also are constantly giving back to the community (as are Blue Stalion, Country Boy and Ethereal here in town). Their beers have infinitely improved in recent years in my opinion, because of the variety they offer. They definitely help make our city a tasty and fun place to live!
