When I first wrote about Craft Brew Races a year ago, they were a start-up series with a cluster of races in the New England area.

They’re growing quickly.

In 2015, the events are moving westward with 10 total locations that include Austin and Boulder.

Those two cities make sense for locations, with Austin being the location of the Beer Mile World Championships and Boulder is, well, Boulder.

Each event is a 5K that features individual prizes as well as team awards for largest team, fastest team and largest team from a brewery.

Last year’s inaugural series featured more than 100 local craft breweries at the races, and this year is looking to be even bigger. They’re still gathering sponsors but have already partnered with Sam Adams and Traveler Beer.

You can find all of their events via Facebook and learn more on their website.

Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
