Enjoy local beer guilt-free by combining it with a four-mile neighborhood run.
Rockaway Brewing Company will host the first-ever Ale I See Run, a four-mile run that will showcase the neighborhood and allow participants to stop at breweries and sample beer along the way.
The run will start and finish at Rockaway Brewing Co., located at 46-01 5th Street, on October 25th from 12:15 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Participants will run at a casual pace from Rockaway Brewing Co. to Big Alice Brewing, LIC Beer Project and Transmitter Brewing, where they will receive a small tasting of each brewery’s offerings.
The run will end at Rockaway Brewing Co., where participants will receive a pint of beer and mingle in the upstairs space of the brewery.
Runners will also stop at cultural landmarks like MoMA PS1 and Silvercup Studios, while enjoying the view of Manhattan along the waterfront.
Tickets for the run cost $50 and only 40 spots remain open, according to the website. The ticket includes a beer sampling at each brewery, a Rockaway pint, a commemorative T-shirt and “the priceless feeling of knowing that you just ran four miles,” the website says.
$5 from each ticket will go towards Recycle-A-Bicycle, a non-profit organization with programs for youth. The brewery considers Recycle-A-Bicycle their neighbor as they have a workshop set up at 5th Street and 46th Avenue.
The brewery teamed up with City Running Tours, a tour group that helps organizes runs around New York City, to host the beer run.
