Ides 30: Run TO

Wheat Beer4.5%

One day, Dan Grant thought, “I could really use a beer.” Then he thought, “I need to go for a run.” He ended up doing both. Now, Dan sometimes finds himself leading as many as 250 runners to beer. RunTOBeer — the largest free running community in Canada — visits breweries all over Toronto, is open to anyone, and raises thousands of dollars for local charity Good Foot Delivery. “Beer and running are two very social things and both are very democratic,” says Dan. “Just like there’s a beer for everyone, there’s a run for everyone.”

This year, Dan was asked to create the first official Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon beer, with the help of Elite Canadian marathoners Rachel Hannah & Reid Coolsaet. We were glad to work with Dan to create the perfect beer to reward yourself, whether you’ve completed a 5K or a full marathon: a dry-hopped Wheat that is refreshing and thirst-quenching with a modest ABV of 4.5%.
