So what exactly is it?

It’s really quite simple — The Craft Brew Race is a timed 5k open to beer lovers of all speeds, combined with a beer festival highlighting the local craft brewing scene. The 3-hour post-race celebration features sampling of more than 30 breweries, including homebrew samples poured by members of the Rhode Island Brewing Society, live music, and food trucks.

Beer festival only tickets are also available for those not wishing to participate in the 5k

What do I do

Step 1. Run, or walk a relaxed, but timed midday 5k open to runners and walkers on scenic courses. Costumes encouraged!

Step 2. Relax and hydrate at the 3-hour post-race craft brew festival featuring free sampling of over 30 local breweries.

What do I get?

All 5k participants and festival-goers receive a pint glass and entry to the festival — including beer sampling, live music, vendors and food trucks selling onsite. All Designated Drivers ticket holders receive a different bracelet at registration. They are welcome to enjoy the festival and designated snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
