Run to any of the 3,400 small, independent craft brewers in the country and then check in on Untappd to unlock the American Craft Beer Week (2015) badge. OK, you don’t actually have to run there to get the badge, but it makes it more rewarding.

Head to the famous Shoes and Brews in Longmont, Colorado for their Thursday night social runs. This week partners with Upslope, and you can also run an 800 meter and the cost of your next pint is your time.

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.
