If you enjoy exercising and drinking locally tapped beer, and if you like doing both at the same time, Saturday’s St. Patty’s Day Poulsbo Beer Run is right up your alley.
This special event is limited to the first 900 runners registered and is sure to sell out, according to poulsbobeerrun.com. Participants can choose to start and end their run at any of the six breweries in town, such as Slippery Pig Brewery, Valholl Brewing, Rainy Daze Brewing, Downpour Brewing Pop-Up and ENVY Bar & Grill featuring Silver City Brewery.
The route is nearly four miles long, which encompasses all six breweries. Enjoy a beer at every stop! Each brewery will be featuring a Kitsap brewery guest tap for your first beer to start the morning. Once participants have visited all six breweries, they will head back to the starting point to receive a seventh beer and a finishers prize.
According to the Poulsbo Beer Run website, there is no time limit for the run to be completed, but volunteers generally start leaving around 11:30 a.m. Drinking all the beers is not required. You can even ask the beer tender for a “short pour.”
Each brewery will have a blue bin for non-perishable donations to the North Kitsap Fishline. For more information, visit poulsbobeerrun.com.
