World’s highest beer run?


Oskar Blues is hosting an event that takes the beer run to new heights.

The inaugural Oskar Blues 5K Hash Run takes participants to the top of North Carolina’s Beech Mountain Resort skip slope at 5,500 feet elevation. From there, the runners make their way down the trail with beer stops along the way featuring Dales Pale Ale, Mama’s Little Yella Pils, and Old Chub Scottish Ale.

The beer doesn’t stop at the finish line, where runner and the general public can take part in a VIP pre-tasting of beers available at a beer festival later on.

The beer run is part of the July 19-21 Bikes, Brews ‘n’ Views event, which as the name suggest includes a mountain bike competition and youth bike rodeo, mountaintop scenery, a beer festival and more.

The $40 race entry covers the 5K, beer, prizes, an Oskar Blues/Beech Mountain Resort mason jar, admission to a concert, entrance into the beer fest, free parking and access to shuttles. Not a bad deal.

Thanks to Lee for the heads up.
