Beer Mile Details: This is all about fun and celebrating Antietam Brewery beer! The Antietam Brewery Beer Mile will be 4 laps, consuming a 12 ounze beer before each lap, capped at 30 participants. The race begins with the sound of the starting horn and participants will drink their first beer prior to leaving the beer drinking zone. Once the beer is consumed they will run a lap counter clockwise around the building and return to the beer drinking zone. They will repeat until 4 beers and 4 laps are complete and on the final lap they will finish through the finish arch. The course is flat, paved and fast! Anyone who vomits at any point will be required to take a 5th lap if they want to complete the event officially.
The official beer that will be consumed during the Beer Mile will be the Antietam Brewery’s General’s Golden Ale, in a can. This is a smooth and delicious beer that will go down easy during the race! It has 5.4% alcohol, meeting the 5% minimum requirement for the Beer Mile.

The “Beer Mile” event has been gaining in popularity over the past few years. However, only a brave few have given it a try. Some top runners have set some incredible records (Men’s Record is 4:33.6 set by Corey Bellemore in 2017 from Canada, Women’s Record is 6:08.0 set by Erin O’Mara from USA) and you can find events all over the country. Most beer mile events are held on a track but some have taken to the streets. The Antietam Brewery Beer Mile will be on black top navigating around the building where the brewery is located. Spectators will enjoy watching the 30 individuals make an attempt to successfully complete the 4 laps and 4 beers. We have provided some links below to help you get educated on this type of event.
