BradtoberFest 2014! Sunday, October 5

Though we aren’t doing a “traditional” BradFest this year, Friends of Brad is gearing up for fall events in the merry spirit of Bavaria’s famous Oktoberfest celebration. The BradtoberFest Run/Rawk/Crawl will take place in Duluth, MN on Sunday, October 5.

Eventbrite - BradtoberFest

The event will connect Duluth’s craft beer, music, and running communities, offering participants a unique opportunity to sample local beer and music while traversing a path that links local breweries and beer-centric venues. Proceeds will benefit young musicians, supporting programs such as the Duluth Music Resource Center and FOBMF‘s scholarship, fellowship, and other charitable programs. Stay tuned for more info!

Sponsors (so far) include:

Bent Paddle Brewing Co., Blacklist Brewing, Borealis Fermentery, Canal Park Brewing Company, Carmody Irish Pub & Brewery, Castle Danger Brewery, Dubh Linn Irish Pub, The Duluth Experience, Endion Station Public House, Fitger’s Brewhouse Brewery and Grille, KUMD – 103.3 FM, Lake Superior Brewing Company, the Red Herring Lounge and 7 West Taphouse
