TRAIL RUNNING, IN THE WINTER?!?
Remember when you were a kid, after that big snow hit and you couldn't wait to get outside? You would pull on your jacket, boots and gloves and spend hours playing in the fluffy white stuff.
Winter is the best time for trail running in Colorado. No crowded trails, no rattlesnakes and you definitely won't overheat!
Imagine running through forest and field, where sparkling snow blankets the branches and the crisp mountain air refreshes the soul. This special 4.5 mile course winds along the base of the iconic Bergen peak through open fields and Evergreen forests where you can frequently see large herds of Elk grazing.
Finish to hot chocolate at the finish line and then head back to the brewery for an Evergreen brew, a hot bowl of delicious homemade chili and raffle giveaways from our sponsors and partners.
Make sure to give back to your favorite local trails through volunteer work! Jeffco Open space offers a variety of educational programs and trail work volunteer opportunities throughout the year, learn more
Our traditional brew run events include our famous "Beer Olympics games". Since the weather is variable this time of year we are waiting to see what games will be possible and we might have some new winter themed ones under wraps.........a keg sled pull relay perhaps??
$40 includes run entry, coffee and hot chocolate, an Evergreen brew, lunch, fun coaster, our "carb loading" pint glass, and fun swag donations from sponsors.

We start and finish from the brewery and run the single track trails winding along the base of Bergen peak. The course includes some moderate climbs, rolling hills and is at over 7500 feet elevation so prepare those lungs and legs! There may be snow and ice on the course so plan accordingly for any weather and trail conditions. A cup of hot chocolate will be awaiting you at the finish line.
IMPORTANT EVENT INFO:
- Due to the terrain we are not able to setup a water station on the course. Be prepared to carry your own hydration/snacks and we will have plenty waiting for you at the finish line!
- No Dogs allowed on the course, however your 4 legged friends are welcome and on the outside brewery patio.
Make sure to bring your ID, extra cash for additional brews + TIPS for your bartenders, food and apparel for any weather
We've had some questions about the weather and here is all we can say: WE LIVE IN COLORADO PEOPLE! Predicting the weather here is just about as accurate as predicting the next lotto winner. Yes, it may be 80 degrees one day and snowing the next but that's what you gotta love about this state. The brew run is on sunshine, rain or snow!
We can use a handful of volunteers!
If a friend or family member wants to come along but doesn't want to run or walk and can help out we can offer them a free brew, pint glass and a good time!
Fill our our volunteer form and we will be in touch soon!
