Oskar Blues Brewery Austin, the original craft beer in a can, will offer participants and spectators 21 and older their award-winning, Austin-brewed beers on race day. The Austin Marathon’s beer garden will provide runners and their friends and family a place to gather. They can also listen to live music, relax, and celebrate their accomplishments. They’ll enjoy any one of Oskar Blues’ signature craft brews post-race. Available beers include Austin’s own Dale’s Pale Ale, Mama’s Little Yella Pils, and a few other locally-brewed Oskar Blues beers. If runners visit the brewery after race day, the first beer is on the house when runners show their bib.

“Our partnership continues to grow just like the popularity of the Oskar Blues Brewery beer garden on race day,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “The post-race celebration lasts for hours as friends and family celebrate their Austin Marathon accomplishments on historic Congress Avenue.”
