Party like a Ragstar

CATEGORIES: Beer Editor   Beer Runner  

There’s always been a connection between beer, running and sleep deprivation.

Now you can show others that you’re into all three with the official RAGNAR Relay pint glass and medal holder. My friends at the beer-friendly overnight relay race series are giving away the prizes (a $60 value) in a random drawing.


We’ll pick a winner on November 1st, so don’t delay entering.

You can also get a medal that doubles as a bottle opener by running the race. If you want to learn more about the series, follow them on Twitter here and like them on Facebook here.

After alternating legs and running for two days straight, the finish line parties are somewhat legendary. Below is a finish line party account from Sara Adgate, who I wrote about here.

I went for the Belgian White which was refreshing, while some of the guys tried out the Maibock, Black Ale and American Copper Ale. At the end of the race on Saturday afternoon, our two beer options were locally brewed in Nashvile. They were the Yazoo Dos Perros Ale and the Yazoo Hefeweizen. During the end of our race, our van was still finishing up. I was the last of the 36 legs to run…finishing in Nashville. My van dropped me off to begin my run and I was jealous of the fact that now the entire team was there at the end enjoying victory beers while I was finishing the last 5.7 miles of our 196.1. tweet

And the best quote of her story:

“Going on 2 hours of sleep that night, I was ready for the finish line and my beer.”

The new IPA

Cloudy, hugely flavorful and a lot less bitter, the new breed of IPA is earning high scores and high praise from fans.
