As part of the DSMBW Kick-off event, we will have the 3rd annual Beer Mile at one of America’s greatest beer bars, El Bait Shop. Beer runners take off at 6:00 p.m.

CHECK-IN: The beer mile check-in is at the Des Moines Beer Week tent on the patio at El Bait Shop the day of the event from 4:00 – 5:45pm.

Do you think you can run a mile fast? Do you still think you can run it fast while drinking 4 beers? A beer mile is just that — 4 laps; 4 beers. Last we knew, the world record for completing a beer mile is UNDER 5 minutes — 4:48 to be exact. Join us at El Bait Shop for our unique beer mile course. Whether running or watching, this is an event you’re not going to want to miss! Costumes welcomed and encouraged 🙂

“This year’s official Beer Mile beer sponsor, SingleSpeed Brewing, has brewed up a crushable beer just for this year’s race!”
