Beer & Charity

Once thing we at Sir Walter Running love to do is contribute to charities that we, as runners, enjoy every day. One way we can do that is by having charity beers at the Sir Walter Miler Pre and Post Party. So every year, we reach out to some of our favorite breweries and ask them to contribute a “runner-friendly” beer. All sales of these beers go towards the charity of our choosing. We have contributed to the Umstead Coalition, Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the East Coast Greenway Alliance, and are excited to keep working with incredible breweries and running-centric charities every year. Please support the breweries below, and check out the charities as well to find out more!

Our 2018 Beneficary & Breweries

The 2018 benefiary is Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a local 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to the fight against all Women’s cancers.
WW_Logo_Color Wicked Weed is a long time friend of Sir Walter, and in 2018 the have created an exclusive Pale Ale called “Run for El Dorado,” based on Sir Walter Raleigh’s “Quest for El Dorado,” and the El Dorado hop.
RBC Not only the home of the Pre and Post Party, Raleigh Brewing Co. has always created special brews for the event, and this year they have created “Sir Sandman Kolsch,” a hoppy, true to style Kolsch style ale that should be quite refreshing on an August evening.
For the Rocket Mile, Rocket Mount Mills-based Hopfly created a Mint Julep Beer for Derby Day packet pickup. For Sir Walter, they will bring “Beach Beer,” a session New England style IPA. Juicy, Hazy, Citrusy. Only 4.9% ABV. The perfect way to rehydrate after a run!
You can support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund by purchasing these beers at the Pre and Post Party, and you’ll be able to purchase Wicked Weed’s “Run for El Dorado,” and other Wicked Weed offerings, at the Sir Walter “Extra” Miler on Saturday, August 4th at 4pm at Tasty Beverage. RSVP here!
