Wow! I am so impressed with the Poulsbo Beer Run I hope I never miss another one. Why? The sheer fun of enjoying some much needed exercise, drinking beer, and being a part of a superb community event.
+1 For Dogs. They make exercise seem like fun.
+1 For Local Breweries. Opening their doors off schedule, making every participant feel welcome, and serving up copious amounts of local beer.
+1 For Awesome Volunteers. A person assigned to watering the dogs at every brewery? +2. Volunteers helping at each brewery direct traffic, keeping the event rolling, and ever so helpful. Except for the Banana. he got distracted easily. because he’s a banana.

+1 Shawna & Dave. Amazing event. Extra Sani-Cans at each brewery. Rolling out runners in waves, and having 3 starting locations. The PBR is evolving nicely.
+1 Costume Contest. Another nice touch to make this event more fun.

Details: The Slippery Pig, Vahöll Brewing, & Sound Brewery all joined to put on the Poulsbo Beer Run (PBR), a 4 mile circuit “race” with a beer at each brewery. Plenty of SWAG, including a commemorative PBR Pint Glass. A poker run, and dogs encouraged. Also on tap were brews from Rainy Daze Brewing and Bainbridge Island Brewing. So many interesting people showed up, with serious runners, joggers, and walkers. Yes, we the people of Kitsap are not afraid to walk between breweries. Sometimes it’s just the best way to get your next beer.
I have no images of the 3rd or 4th beer. I was spent. I am eager to join the next one. Thank you to all the breweries, volunteers, Dave & Shawna, and the City of Poulsbo!
