I noticed a couple things when I started doing ultra-trail-mountain races last year:
1. A tight-knit community of like-minded people that are very supportive of each other, AND
2. Runners that really love to kick back after a long run, eat a ton of great food and drink tasty beer (those fellow runners over the age of 21 of course)!
Now on the last thought I got to thinking of how refreshing an adult beverage is and how sharing a new set of brews with runners while sharing “battle stories” from the trail/race can be a very rewarding experience. I’m not a total beer snob (I’m a “wannabe beer snob”), but I will say that IPAs have a special place in my heart and I genuinely enjoy the taste of a quality beer with my dinner after a challenging workout day . But I think a lot of us crazy ultra runners have a similar palate for these indulgences in life (and did you know having some beer helps with recovery and reduces inflammation due to polyphenols?!). …I think that that’s an awesome thing.
So anyway, I’m very proud to announce that Avery Brewing Company (local to Boulder Colorado) is going to be sponsoring me! It’s always been my dream to help support and spread the word about local brands dear to my heart and Avery totally fits the bill. They make an amazing selection of craft beers that will whet the palate of beer snobs across the country. Whether you like IPAs, Porters, Stouts, Pilsners, Amber Ales, Brown Ales, Belgian Wheat, etc., Avery Brewing has a beer for you! I look forward to helping spread the word about such quality beers from a company that really cares about promoting events that get people together! Thanks for all the support and best of luck with your running (and beer tasting).
