HopSwap18_medal_CS6OK, technically it’s a half marathon and a 5K.

But really it’s an excuse to get all our brewery friends together for a big party.

On Saturday March 31st, we will once again kick off NC Beer Month with the HopSwap Half Marathon/5K.

For those of you signed up — can’t wait to see you!

For those who haven’t signed up but still want to run – there’s still time. (you can also volunteer.)

Last year, the inaugural year of the HopSwap, we were joined at the finish line by 6 of our fellow Triad breweries, who graciously donated their time (and beer) to help out our race charity, Yadkin Riverkeeper.

Apparently word got out about how much fun this race is – because that number has doubled this year.

Counting us we will have 13, count ’em, 13 breweries awaiting all those thirsty runners (and everyone else who comes out). In addition to more Triad breweries coming, we have friends coming from as far away as Charlotte and Rocky Mount – even one from South Carolina.

From the Triad we’ll have Foothills, Brown Truck, Four SaintsJoymongers, Preyer, Natty Greene’s, Hoots, Fiddlin’ Fish, and Wise Man.

Two of our favorites from Charlotte are also coming – Wooden Robot and Legion.

Koi Pond is coming from Rocky Mount – as is Quest, all the way from Greenville South Carolina.

Yadkin Riverkeeper will be selling beer tickets ($5 each), good for a pour at any of the participating breweries.

This will be the single biggest gathering of NC breweries in the Triad during NC Beer Month. Don’t miss out!
