Hops and Grain Brewery 5k - Austin, TX, TX 2020
A partnership that will make both beer lovers and passionate runners weep tears of joy, City Running Tours Austin and the Hops and Grain Brewery have collaborated in creating the Hops and Grain Brewery 5k! Beer and running coalesce seamlessly into an entertaining 3.1 mile running tour that ends appropriately at the local brewery where each registrant gets a beer on the house.
Originally called Pecan Street, Austin's city architect, Edwin Waller, planned for 6th St. to be the East/West Axis of the city with Congress Ave as the North/South, making the intersection of Congress and Pecan(6th) the epicenter of all social and commercial activity. Waller's planning still holds true today and while Congress Ave features a bustling variety of commercial space, banks, high-end retail stores, etc... 6th St has embraced a reputation similar to Bourbon St. in New Orleans, as a vice-filled line of bars,clubs and occasional restaurant that lures locals and tourists alike in for a wild night of drinking, debauchery, and live music. Our beer route explores the street's rich history as well as its current live music scene, haunted hotspots, and world-famous watering holes that will all culminate at the Hops and Grain Brewery for unlimited beer drinking and an additional tour of the brewery itself.

CRT FAQ -
1) Is tipping allowed? Yes. While tipping is in no way required - your smiles are their own reward - your guides certainly welcome it if you wish to show your appreciation through a tip. 2) Will you cancel in the case of bad weather? The weather would have to be really, really bad for us to cancel a tour. We run in all weather, and we love it. We might cancel if the ground were going to be so icy as to be dangerous. In that event, we notify runners ahead of time and reschedule them for a future date. 3) Is there a place to leave my things? No, our tours do not have coat checks. Your guides can carry small items for you if need be. 4) What happens if I am late? If you are the only person booked for the tour, your guide will wait 10 minutes past the scheduled start time if they've not heard from you. They will make reasonable accommodations if you call to tell them you're on your way. If others are also booked for the tour, we will start at the scheduled time if we have not heard from you. If you call your guide, they will delay the start no longer than 10 minutes, out of courtesy to the other participants. We strive to make sure that everyone has the best possible experience with us.
