The 2021 Shamrock Beer Run will be virtual due to the pandemic.  Please plan to join us on March 20th.

Start the race with a toast of craft beer. Then you get beer samples along the 5K at roughly each kilometer along the course.

Plus you may enjoy a complementary pint of beer before or after the 5K.

34 ounces total included.

Are you ready to Party Shamrock Style?

The 2020 Brewfest event will feature a Kick-A DJ, music, food and plenty of beer!

We’re working hard to improve your experience. Once again in 2020 we’ll have giant beer pong, corn hole, leprechaun’s dancing for all your fun beer loving shenanigans…

This year, everyone is a VIP! We will have tents, tables, chairs, and heaters if Mother Nature doesn’t play nicely.

Don't do 5K's? No problem.
Sign up for Brewfest Only!

We get it. 5Ks are not for everyone. But, you still want to take part in the festivities after the race, or better yet, quaff a few while your friends and others are out on the course. Enjoy the music, food, and comfort of the tents with tables, chairs and heaters (in case the weather doesn’t play nice).
