Inaugural Missoula Brews Cruise

Townsquare Media, Montana Brewery Passport, and Missoula Bike Source have teamed up to present the inaugural Missoula Brews Cruise on Saturday September 19, 2015. This day-long event features a poker run by bicycle, where participants pedal to Missoula breweries and bars to collect cards. Proceeds go to MTB Missoula, the area’s only mountain bike advocacy group.

“Our radio stations reach a diverse audience, but a love for local beer and riding bikes is a common thread,” says Christy Lefler, Marketing Specialist for Townsquare Media. “Our team has been looking for a unique way to blend bicycles and Missoula breweries, and thanks to Ryan Newhouse and his Montana Brewery Passport, and Chris Larson at Missoula Bike Source, we were able to collaborate and create this amazing event.”

Participants can register for the event online at http://bit.ly/brewscruisemsla or at any of the participating locations (see map below). Registration will close on Thursday September 17.

On Friday September 18, participants can pick up their registration bags at Bayern Brewing between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m., when it is expected that Bayern will be offering its new food menu to the public.
On the day of the event, riders will meet at Kettlehouse-Northside at noon and begin their poker run through Missoula. In order to participate, riders will need to stop at a minimum of five partner locations to collect a card. When they have collected their cards, they will be turned in at Great Burn Brewing starting at 5:00 p.m. (but no later than 6:30 p.m.). The best male poker hand and female poker hand (ties will be broken) will each winner a new cruiser bike, courtesy Missoula Bike Source.
