Now, I've done RACES that have ended at a brewery in the past, but a group run? On a random Saturday? Where we had to wait outside in the cold for an hour just to GET INSIDE the brewery? Definitely a first.
The event was put on by some of the wonderful ladies at Chicago Running Bloggers. OF COURSE, the second I saw brewery tour, I was totally in. So instead of my normally wordy entries, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
(I stole these photos from Anne and Pete... I don't run with my phone. Blogger fail.)

|So. Close. To. Beer.|

|FINALLY inside and ready to taste!|
|I tried the Lager, Alpenglow, and Space = 3 new beers!|
|I was still listening to the leader at this point... must have been the 1st beer.|
|Crystal meth?! Ohhh, crystal HOPS.|
|I don't remember when we took this...|
|...was it before or after the tour guide yelled at us?|
|What, you don't bring your own snacks to the brewery? Amateur.|
|This is the "after" picture.|
