Spend any time with local non-competitive running clubs and you’ll notice a recurring theme: every run culminates with beer. Sure, the sudsy stuff may not be what your needs after a workout, but it’s mostly water and carbs anyway, so no harm no foul. In celebration of the running community’s well-established love for cruising and brews-ing, Brooks Running teamed up with Deschutes Brewery to bring us the Run Hoppy Collection a limited-edition, beer-themed bundle of shoes and apparel, as well as a beer brewed just for the occasion.

Known for its lightweight design and smooth, responsive cushioning, the Brooks Ghost 14 tops the podium with its beer-infused upper. The breathable fabric boasts an all-over print of foamy growlers, mugs and pint glasses, while a large golden stripe runs through the midsole. It’s followed to the finish by a set of his and hers beer-themed running shirts, a hat and a pair of tempo knit-in running socks. But our favorite addition is undoubtedly the Run Hoppy Golden IPA that’s available in Portland and Bend, Oregon where Deschutes brews its beer.
