On Saturday, May 28, GetKnit Events is hosting the ultimate St. Paul brewery crawl.

The Brews & Buses: St. Paul Brewery Bus Crawl will start at 11am at Union Depot and last until 6pm, and use more than 20 buses to deliver hundreds of beer lovers right to the door of any and all of the 11 breweries within St. Paul’s city limits.

Each participant will receive two tokens good for a pint of beer at any participating brewery, an event T-shirt (which doubles as a voucher for special discounts at the breweries), and an event passport that includes maps and information to guide them through the city and individual breweries.

After getting their swag at Union Depot, brewers embark on a self-guided “choose your own adventure” tour, riding the bus circuit to whichever brewery their heart desires. Every stop will offer a specialty beer on tap, activities, and discounts on food, brews, and merchandise throughout the day.

“Each brewery offers not only a variety of unique beers, they also have their own unique atmosphere and vibe,” GetKnit’s Nick Blake said in a press release. “[…] It’s a great way for people to not only taste the beer in its freshest form, but also to experience the nuances of each taproom, meet some of the brewers, and see where their beer is being made.”

Last year’s bus crawl attracted over 1,200 craft beer drinkers and sold out, so get your tickets now. Tickets went on sale today (Tuesday, March 22) at 12pm, and will be available for $45 until April 29.

MN Brewery Running Series Announces 2015 Schedule

Out of the dozens of serious and casual runners in my group of friends, there’s something I’ve noticed they have in common—every one of them loves beer.

It may be coincidence, but with scientific studies pointing to beer as a superior post-run beverage to water, the recent record-setting sub-5 minute beer mile, and a running store in Colorado that serves 20 craft beers on draft, it seems that the beer and running cultures are inseparably connected.

Here in the Twin Cities, the beer and running worlds aligned back in 2012 with the creation of the MN Brewery Running Series—a series of 5k runs ending at local taprooms and pubs for a pint of local brew. These 5k runs/walks aren’t as competitive as other 5ks in the Twin Cities running circuit, instead MN Brewery Running Series opts for a more relaxed event to recruit people new to running. Since it’s inception the series has grown to include more of the ever-growing list of local brewery taprooms, attracting more beer drinkers to running and runners to beer drinking.

On February 15th, the MN Brewery Running Series announced the 2015 schedule featuring 28 different 5k runs ending at breweries, brewpubs, cideries, and even a local distillery—the company’s longest season yet. Runners receive a free pint of beer at each taproom (or liquor sample at the distillery), but also a seasonal merchandise, and post-run entertainment including live music, giveaways and offers from partners, and access to local food trucks.

It’s a chance to kill three birds with one stone: cross local taprooms off your wish list, get in your daily exercise, and reward yourself with a cold beer. The season kicks off at April 4th at Dangerous Man Brewing in Minneapolis and runs through January 2, 2016 for a fun Lose Your Resolution event at Day Block Brewing.
