Every Tuesday night a group of runners with varying experience meets at a local brewery or craft beer bar and runs between 3-5 miles returning for post-run beer. Past events have taken place in Oakland (The Trappist, Modern Times, Temescal Brewing), Berkeley (Fieldwork Brewing, Gilman Brewing, Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Room), Alameda (Faction Brewing, Almanac Beer Co), and many more locations throughout the East Bay. Running routes are determined several days in advance and are posted in each meetup. We look forward to running and enjoying some beer with you!
