Start time is 11am, Saturday, Dec 6th.  A first of its kind! A 0.5k Winter Beer Dash between BauHaus Brew Lab and 612 Brew….wearing Ugly Seaters!!!  Included with your registration is 1 beer at each brewery, a sweet Ugly Sweater, live music, and a fun time …all while raising money for local nonprofit Bolder Options!

We encourage you to bring a non-perishable food item to support local food shelves! Also, there will be MN Brewery Running Series logo’ed pint glasses for sale for $2 or 4/$5 with 100% of all sales going to Bolder Options!

Event Details

Registrants gather at Bauhaus Brew Lab in NE Minneapolis to start and will be navigated along a 0.5k route to 612 Brew. Upon arriving to 612 Brew you will get a ticket redeemable for 1 delicious pint of 612 Brew beer. Then, after you are done at 612 Brew, DASH back to BauHaus to recieve another tasty brew!

Your one-of-a-kind Beer Dash Ugly Sweater will be distributed at BauHaus Brew Labs, available for pick up at any time during the event.

This will be an OPEN course, meaning roads will not be closed. There will be volunteers directing you along the course.

First one accross the Finish line wins the Golden Growler, good for one free Growler of Beer to take home with you!

Registration is limited to 150 people ONLY! You must bring a valid ID to check-in & get your free beer.

Let’s consider this an “Un-Race” as it goes against many principles of those fancy 5k races around the Lakes of Minneapolis or along the River by Harriet Island in St. Paul that you may be familiar with….I mean, this is a 0.5k run…yes, 0.5k…not 5k, 0.5k!

  • This is not timed
  • You will not get a medal when you finish
  • There will not be t-shirts given away (but you get a really cool ugly sweater!)

You can run, jog, or walk –  your choice, no one cares!!!! The only advantages of finishing quicker is colder beer!

What you will get is:

  1. A beer from each of the breweries!
  2. A limited edition event Ugly Sweater!
  3. A fun time!
  4. A warm-fuzzy feeling that a portion of this events proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit, Bolder Options!
  5. and, a chance to win the GOLDEN GROWLER!

Have fun & drink responsibily.
