Does carbo-loading work if the carbs are beer, and you drink it after a race? Probably not, but we recommend it – you’ll want to reward yourself with one anyway post-run, and what better place to enjoy a beer (more like many beers) at the second annual Brew Hop 5k and Craft Beer Festival.

Held in Randall’s Island Park on Saturday, October 21, you’ll start off with a 5k race, and beyond the finish line waits a festival filled with music, lawn games, bites from local food vendors, and of course, a brewery row. Runners (and non-runners!) will be able to enjoy unlimited tastings from some of our favorite craft breweries such as Brooklyn Brewery, Sixpoint Brewery, Bronx Brewery, Interboro Spirits and Ales, Kings County Brewers Collective, Coney Island Brewing Company, Captain Lawrence Brewing Co., Brewery Ommegang, Southern Tier Brewing Company, Citizen Cider, SpikedSeltzer, SingleCut Beersmiths, Rockaway Brewing Co., and more to be announced.

This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Oceanic Global. Tickets will go fast, so get on that – you can purchase them here. Happy running (and drinking)!
