Hit the Road for the 3rd Annual Poulsbo Beer Run

B, double E,  double R , U N  – beer run. Great, now that Todd Snider song is stuck in my head. It’ll be there for days.

You’ve heard of the Bermuda Triangle, right? Well this is more like the Beermuda Triangle. That’s the nickname many people have given Poulsbo. Visiting all three tasting rooms in one session is known as the Poulsbo Trifecta: Sound Brewery, Slippery Pig Brewery, and Valhol Brewing.

On Sunday, March 17th you are invited to participate in the 3rd Annual Poulsbo Beer Run. True to its name, the Poulsbo Beer Run sees participants visiting all three breweries. You choose at which of the three breweries you will begin, then visit the other two before returning to your “home brewery.” And yes, there will be beer involved. Dogs are welcome to participate, in the running at least.

Enrollment is limited to just 300 runners. Be sure to sign up early to qualify for some incentives. Go to the official website. More details below.

This is a 4 mile Run that includes tasting Poulsbo’s best beers along the way. Visit Slippery Pig Brewery, Sound Brewery, and Valholl Brewing. Three breweries, 4 miles, a beer at each.

You’ll start with a beer from your “Home Brewery” and run to the other 2 breweries. At each brewery you’ll enjoy an awesome beer. Then when you return “Home” you’ll have a beer from a one of the guest breweries. The guest breweries will be as follows: Slippery Pig–Rainy Daze Brewing; Sound Brewery–Slaughter County Brewery; Valholl–Bainbridge Island Brewing.

We will hold a raffle drawing on February 15th for those who have already registered. If your name is drawn, your registration fee will be refunded! You can only win if you are registered by February 14th at midnight, so SIGN UP NOW!
