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.
We've put in the work researching, reviewing and rounding up all the shirts, jackets, shoes and accessories you'll need this season, whether it's for yourself or for gifting purposes. Sign up here for weekly style inspo direct to your inbox.
