UPDATE: On Wednesday morning Flotrack announced that the Beer Mile World Championships will be held at the Circuit of the Americas. The previous venue was Yellow Jacket Stadium.
Austin based Flocasts is hosting the first ever Flotrack Beer Mile World Championships where athletes run a mile — but they have to drink a beer before each lap. The World Championships will feature elite athletes from around the world, including Olympians and members of Team USA. Further, there will be open heats for Austinites to attempt the Beer Mile.
Hops & Grain has stepped up as official beer for this inaugural event with a beer specifically brewed for running and chugging. The beer is a German style blonde ale, very similar to a Kolsch style with a small amount of dry-hopping to give the beer a spicy hop character that adds a clean, crisp finish.
Come by and watch! Spectating is encouraged and it's free to attend.
