In 2012, Morgan Jappe and Nate Herrington had a simple question: How could they best fuse their twin passions, craft beer and running? They answered themselves by founding Brewery Running Series, a family-friendly event that starts with an untimed 5K, set around a local craft brewery, and culminates in craft brews, food, live music, giveaways, and activities with partners and sponsors. Every runner gets to take home swag and a keepsake pint glass, too, a reminder that combining running and drinking doesn't always mean outrunning a keg rolling down the street. 10% of the event's proceeds help support local nonprofit partners such as the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.
