The ultimate finish line beer

Go ahead, reward yourself


After a hard run, some people like to reward themselves with the cold and refreshing carbohydrates in a craft beer.

Other times, runners want to get something a bit more substantial with a treat like ice cream.

Now you don’t have to decide between the two at the finish line. As you can see above, New Belgium is teaming up with Ben and Jerry’s for a Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale.

The collaboration will hit the shelves in the fall, just in time for peak marathon season. You can sign up for an alert to find when the beer comes to your area, which includes a “marathon distance” away.

This isn’t the only beer that combines runners’ post-workout indulgence. You can also get a chocolate milk stout from Odell, brewed with milk sugar and milk chocolate and “reminds us of a cold glass of chocolate milk.”

So go ahead, reward yourself.
