Charleston’s 5k Brew Run & Craft Brew festival is all about supporting both an active lifestyle, as well as the local craft brewing industry—the perfect activity to add to a Charleston vacation itinerary. It’s starts with a 5k, then ends with a 3-hour celebration, complete with unlimited beer samplings from local breweries, a branded pint glass, live music and individual and team awards. It’s going to be an amazing time!
You don’t have to be a craft brew aficionado to participate, nor do you have to be an avid runner. You do, however, have to be 21 or older. Sorry kids!
