About us

Running. Beer. Fun.
No items found.

The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis, MN in 2012. Co-founders Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe joined forces to start a series of events combining their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community.

The Illinois Brewery Running Series is locally owned and operated by Chicago residents Serena Pomerantz and Rob Hendler. They are the masterminds behind the Illinois schedule and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!

Across all our events - participants walk / jog / run a 5k course and then drink beer. It's just that simple! Everyone is invited to enjoy the day’s entertainment: live music, food trucks, giveaways and activities with partners and sponsors, and all finishers get a FREE craft brew and collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item.

Icing on the cake? A portion of all proceeds goes to benefit local non-profits.
