I am not a runner, but when there is beer involved I will run for beer. This will be the second year that I will be competing in the North Portland Craft Dash. The event is organized by a couple of my favorite beer bars, Saraveza and the Hop & Vine. Not only do they know their beer, but they teamed up to put on a great event.

Here are the details of the event from the organizer:

Sat. July 10 (same day as Mississippi St. Fair): The North Portland Craft Dash is a “good cause” 5k that celebrates the neighborhood and it’s best beer offerings! You’ll have a chance to visit some of the neighborhood’s favorite beer stops while sampling NoPo beers including Upright , Lucky Lab, Amnesia, Lompoc and Breakside! The race starts at Killingsworth’s Hop & Vine and ends at Amnesia Brewing’s patio, where you’ll be presented with prizes and a drink ticket for the Mississippi Street Fair.

In signing up for the Craft Dash, you’ll receive a commemorative t-shirt and pint glass, a ticket for a beer at the Mississippi Street Fair Beer garden and craft beer at each stop. North PDX artist Zach Johnsen is creating the Craft Dash’s commemorative artwork . All proceeds go to No Po’s Open Meadow Alternative School.

Sign up today at the Hop & Vine or Saraveza! Space is limited! $30 cash/$33 if paid with cc. Must be 21 to participate!!

The last day to sign up and get the t-shirt is June 10th, but if there are spaces left, people can still sign up even though t-shirts cannot be guaranteed.

For updates on the Craft Dash sign up follow Saraveza and The Hop & Vine on Twitter!
