You guys, we can’t even contain our excitement for this event. The Brew Hop, the coolest 5K on the planet, is taking place Sunday, September 18th at 10:00am, and we want YOU to join Team We Heart Astoria!

What is The Brew Hop? It’s a 5K run/walk on Randall’s Island, followed by a beer and food festival with live music. Yes, an event that combines all of our favorite things: fitness, drinks, tunes, and great eats! AND a portion of the proceeds goes to a fantastic cause: City Harvest, working to end hunger in NYC.

Oh, and one more thing: If you sign up for our team, you’ll be entered to win pretty sweet prizes from some of our generous friends in the community, including Sweet Afton, QED, Sac’s Place, and The Bonnie. So it’s a win, win, win!

A link to register for Team We Heart Astoria can be found here. NOTE: If you are asked for a password, it’s “astoriaheartsbeer.” Be sure to follow this link to join our team specifically! More information can be found on the event’s official Facebook page here.

Your 5K registration fee includes the run, unlimited beers from all participating breweries for the duration of the festival, a koozie and pint glass as a souvenir, a finisher’s medal, and access to the festival (food trucks, live music, lawn games, etc!) There is also an option to purchase festival-only tickets for those who aren’t interesting in the 5k portion (but it’s worth noting: no one will judge if you power-walk!) There are also VIP options if you’re looking to treat yo’ self: those tickets include things like massages and private restrooms. You can check out the event’s FAQ section for answers on any burning questions you may have!

So what breweries will be there? All of our favorites, including beloved neighborhood spots like Singlecut and Rockaway Brewing. Here’s the full list!
