Check out the Best Places to Drink After a Run Picked by The Brew Hop Founder Joey Garofalo

On the heels of a successful first annual event in 2016, the 5K + Craft Beer Festival will once again give attendees the chance to combine their love for running and craft beer. The day starts off with a 5K race (Check In starts @ 10am | Race @ 12pm) followed by a festival until 4pm for attendees to indulge in the best beer and food New York City has to offer. The post-race festival will feature music, lawn games, brewery row, local food vendors such as Dom’s Mac Truck and Sweet Chili, and seating areas.

The post-race festival will feature unlimited tastings from craft breweries around the Greater New York area and beyond, such as: Brooklyn Brewery, Sixpoint Brewery, Bronx Brewery, Interboro Spirits and Ales, Kings County Brewers Collective, Coney Island Brewing Company, Captain Lawrence Brewing Co., Brewery Ommegang, Southern Tier Brewing Company, Citizen Cider, SpikedSeltzer, SingleCut Beersmiths, Rockaway Brewing Co., and more to be announced over the next few weeks!

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Oceanic Global, an organization that taps into universal passions of art, music and emerging tech to educate individuals on issues impacting our oceans and provide them with solutions for driving positive change. Beer festivals and race events typically produce a lot of waste. For more information, please visit:

Best Places To Drink After A Run

Williamsburg – Croxley’s

Huge craft beer selection that specifically says no Bud, Coors, or Miller, and delicious bar food. Not to mention 40 cent wings when games are on. Perfect hang after a run on Kent. 


West Village – Blind Tiger

Some of the best craft beer selections in the city and just a few blocks from the popular running route along the Westside Highway. 


Lower East Side – Top Hops

Small craft beer bar with a highly curated draft list plus refrigerators in the back with selections of beers from all over the world. Grab some bar snacks and post up. 


Greenpoint – TORST

Rated one of the best craft beer bars in the world, (yes, the world) the Danish bar has a rotating tap list and a massive bottle list that will keep you occupied for hours. Also great vibes and music to wind down to after a run. 


East Village – Proletariat

For those looking to expand their craft beer horizons, go to this hidden bar and get schooled by some of the most knowledge bartenders in NYC. There are only ten seats, but plenty of beer to quench your thirst after a run along the East side. 


Upper East – Pony Bar

Run your way through Central Park and over to 1st Ave to their rustic bar featuring incredible regional craft beers and a reasonably priced food menu filled with burgers, wings, and BBQ. 


Hell’s Kitchen – Valhalla

Equidistant from the SW corner of Central Park and the Westside Highway, Valhalla has a curated list of 48 beers on tap at all times with great bar food.
