Run and sip your way around Long Island City in the crisp Autumn weather with the rockin’ crew of Rockaway Brewing Co and City Running Tours. The first-ever ALE I SEE Run is a guided running and sightseeing tour that starts and concludes at Rockaway Brewing Co, with a meandering loop of LIC.
This 4-mile route, led at a casual pace, will feature beautiful views of Manhattan along the Waterfront and stops at cultural landmarks like PS1 and Silvercup Studios, while immersing runners in the history of Long Island City and the Queensboro Bridge.
Along the way, we will also stop at Big Alice Brewing, LIC Beer Project, and Transmitter Brewing for small tastes and an introduction to each brewery’s offerings. The run culminates at Rockaway Brewing Co where we’ll warm up with a pint of Rockaway beer and mingle in the hidden upstairs space (song requests optional).
Your ticket includes small beer samples at each brewery, a celebratory Rockaway pint, a commemorative T-shirt, and the priceless feeling of knowing that you just ran 4 miles. $5 from each ticket will go towards Recycle-a-Bicycle. Rockaway Brewing Co calls Recycle-a-Bicycle neighbors in LIC and we like to celebrate human-powered modes of transportation, not to mention their youth programs and environmental initiatives.
$50 tickets are limited to 40 spots and are available here.
UPDATES AS OF OCTOBER 15:
From 2-3pm we will have the upstairs space of the brewery to ourselves as we listen to various songs requested by runners (aka optional power hour). Grilled Cheese Alley will sell grilled cheese and soups, perfect to pair with beer!
Brown Paper Tickets is matching the donation to Recycle-a-Bicycle, meaning $10 from each ticket will go towards them. Exciting stuff.
