Want to attend the event, enjoy the great local craft beer, but not interested in doing a 5k? Great! Register for the BrewFest!  Includes a Pint of beer and all the benefits to the entertainment and fun without having to walk or run 3 miles to get to where everyone wants to be anyway…. The post race party!

This is a standalone event, and while there is a 5k run/walk going on, we get hundreds of people who show up just to sample the Craft Beer Options and the brewfest party. So whether you have friends in the 5k, or just want to join the party, this option is for you!

This entry is good for admittance to the Brewfest only and includes 1 Pint of Craft Beer. Additional Beer is available for purchase prior to the event or at the event.

Open to ages 21 – 999.
