A partnership that will make both beer lovers and passionate runners weep tears of joy, City Running Tours Austin and the Hops and Grain Brewery have collaborated in creating the Hops and Grain Brewery 5k! Beer and running coalesce seamlessly into an entertaining 3.1 mile running tour that ends appropriately at the local brewery where each registrant gets a beer on the house.
Originally called Pecan Street, Austin's city architect, Edwin Waller, planned for 6th St. to be the East/West Axis of the city with Congress Ave as the North/South, making the intersection of Congress and Pecan(6th) the epicenter of all social and commercial activity. Waller's planning still holds true today and while Congress Ave features a bustling variety of commercial space, banks, high-end retail stores, etc... 6th St has embraced a reputation similar to Bourbon St. in New Orleans, as a vice-filled line of bars,clubs and occasional restaurant that lures locals and tourists alike in for a wild night of drinking, debauchery, and live music. Our beer route explores the street's rich history as well as its current live music scene, haunted hotspots, and world-famous watering holes that will all culminate at the Hops and Grain Brewery for unlimited beer drinking and an additional tour of the brewery itself.
Event details and schedule
The tour will begin at 12PM CST. A confirmation email will be sent out in the days leading up to the tour.
