About This Activity

This is a sampler event, meaning there will be multiple craft beers to sample for FREE! Our best yet! But before tasting the suds, join us for a fun run/walk......then drink beer (or Soda for the kids!)...all while raising money for local nonprofit Bolder Options!
Registrants gather at Kieran's Irish Pub, located in downtown Minneapolis, to start and will be navigated along a 5k route through the area around the pub. When finishing, you will be rewarded with a FREE samples of local craft brews (or a Soda) and a FREE collectors glass!

This will be an OPEN course, meaning roads will not be closed. There will be volunteers directing you along the course.

First one accross the Finish line wins the Golden Growler, good for bragging rights & some extra Beer!

Registration is limited! You must bring a valid ID to check-in & get your free beer.
Let's consider this an "Un-Race" as it goes against many principles of those fancy 5k races around the Lakes of Minneapolis or along the River by Harriet Island in St. Paul that you may be familiar with.

  • This is not timed
  • You will not get a medal when you finish
  • There will not be t-shirts given away

You can run, jog, or walk -  your choice, no one cares!!!! The only advantages of finishing quicker is colder beer!
What you will get is:

  1. FREE BEER...multiple samples from multiple local craft breweres! and a FREE Collectors Beer Glass
  2. A fun time!
  3. A friendly run/jog/walk with other great people through a fantastic part of Minneapolis!
  4. A warm-fuzzy feeling that a portion of this events proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit Bolder Options!
  5. and, the first one accross the finish line wins the GOLDEN GROWLER, redeemable for some extra beer!

Have fun & drink responsibily. There will not be bag checks at the event.

Parking: We always encourage carpooling and public transit of course! There is plenty of pay-for parking in ramps and on nearby streets. Allow for extra time navigating the downtown streets!
