Beer Quest! Oregon Brewery Running Series & StormBreaker (drink ‘Stormtoberfest’ at the event on June 15th!)

I love beer. After now having visited over 490 different breweries, it’s fair to say I have sampled a lot of beer (follow me on Untappd). From post-race pints and run club meeting locations, to beer miles and relays, running and the kegged nectar seem to go hand-in-hand in Oregon. Our Kegs and Legs feature is where beer cider drinking runners like me can go to find some new favorite beverages. Check out previous posts here!

Coming up THIS WEEKEND, is Beer Quest held at StormBreaker Brewing in North Portland in conjunction with the Oregon Brewery Running Series. This event is super fun and unique, and something you won’t want to miss. Simply put, it is a running event- but with a twist – there is actually no standard course. In order to earn your beer at the brewfest, runners will have to meander around NOPO and their bevy of great breweries, receive hole punches in cards at each location, and then turn in back at Storm Breaker to redeem a 4 ounce pour of that brewery’s beer. However, it’s not just about being the fastest, as there are additional and secret ways to gain points along the way to be crowned champion of the event. Your ticket to the event will include entry, an event taster glass, 8 taster tickets, live music and a great time.

Make sure you check out Stormtoberfest Marzen Lager when hanging out at the event (or any other time you are at StormBreaker). It may sound and feel like a fall beer, but this is one of my more favorite lagers out there (this ain’t your Bud Light lager)! It’s much more complex and drinks super smooth!

See you at Beer Quest!
