Deschutes race awarding weight in beer

CATEGORIES: Beer   Beer Runner  


Deschutes Brewery is capitalizing on the popularity of the beer mile with a race of its own, and the winning team will take home its weight in beer.

The Oregon brewery is hosting the Brewers Cup Relay, a 4-kilometer race for teams of two or four runners. Participants will run a 1K lap and drink a Pacific Wonderland Lager before tagging a teammate to repeat the process.

There’s also a division for breweries to compete—all team members must be currently employed at the same brewery—with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to a charity of the brewery’s choice.

Prizes include winning the team’s weight in Deschutes Brewery Pacific Wonderland Lager; Deschutes Brewery Public House gift certificates; and Deschutes Brewery swag.

The relay will take place on February 4th after the 2017 Cross Country championships in Bend, Oregon. Sign up here.

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.
