Fireworks. Grilling. Your weight in beer.
Avery Brewing is working on establishing an annual Independence Day tradition with a 4-mile race, where the winner can take home 6 to 7 cases of beer.
On July 4th, the overall winners of the Four on the Fourth 5K will earn their weight in Avery beer, with age group winners receiving a case of Avery beer.
The competition may be stiff.
U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier and an elite ultra-distance trail runner Sage Canaday, for instance, is a fan of Avery’s White Rascal Belgian Wheat Beer and the Four on the Fourth competition.
“They make great craft beers and they do a lot for the local Boulder running community,” he told Competitor. “And they sponsor a race where you can win your weight in beer!”
Avery has long been a supporter of earning your beer with sweat. They have also hosted bike rides that start and end at their Tap Room.
