Brewery Running Series

Sat April 13 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us for a fun-filled day of running, beer, and good vibes at Utepils Brewing.

Nestled on the banks of Bassett Creek between the Harrison and Bryn Mawr neighborhoods of Minneapolis - we've mapped out a 5k-ish course that starts and ends at Utepils' iconic Fernweh Taproom. Run, walk or jog before enjoying a locally-made craft beverage in the serene outdoor Beer Garden.

Whether you're a seasoned runner or just looking for a good excuse to be active, this event is fun for all. The 5k course will take you through scenic routes, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings while getting your heart pumping.

After crossing the finish line, reward yourself with a well-deserved pint of craft beer from Utepils Brewing. Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment and the taste of a refreshing brew!

So gather your friends and come join us at Utepils Brewing on Saturday, April 13. It's our first official event of the 2024 season and it's sure to be a great start to spring!

This event is part of our 12th annual, 2024 Minnesota Brewery Running Series Season

All participants receive:

  • (1) craft brew at the finish line from Utepils Brewing
  • Choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
  • A chance to win sweet prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or beer to take home
  • Access to event festivities like live music, games and goodies with our partners and sponsors
  • And more!

Our mission is to be active, have fun and give back. A portion of all proceeds from our events supports local nonprofits - over $500k raised to date! This event will add to that tally by donating 10% to local organizations like: LivingWell Disability Services. So not only do you get to enjoy some healthy activity and great, local beer - you are helping us support local organizations that do important work in our community.

Registration is limited to the size of the taproom and many of our events sell out. Sign up today!
