Oskar Blues brews specialty lager for race

CATEGORIES: Beer   Beer Runner  

Oskar Blues is known for sponsoring beer-themed races, such as the Beer Relay at Burning Can and other beer festivals.

They’re adding another beery twist with the debut of a specialty 4-Mile Lager at the upcoming Oskar Blues 4-Miler; the beer is brewed and released just for this race.

The runner-friendly 5% ABV beer will benefit the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Brevard. Winners of the March 5th race will also take home beer steins.

With their entry, runners get a beverage from Oskar Blues, T-shirt, live music, pastries from Bracken Mountain Bakery,  awards from Mud Dabbers Potter.  Online registration can be found here.

Oskar Blues has become known for hosting running events featuring beer. In 2015, they created The Beer Relay with six hours (!) of trail running around a 5K trail loop overlooking waterfalls and the Rocky Mountains.

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.
