Beer and Fitness: The New Happy Hour with Markeita

Beer in Exchange for Exercise? Deal!

Events pairing beer and exercise have become increasingly popular around the country. It’s a fun way to feel the burn and grab a pint at the same time. Whether you want to hit the mat and relax or lace up your sneakers for some fresh air, there are plenty of events and groups to choose from here in Atlanta. So, grab a friend or make a new one and check out this new fitness trend.

Become a Beer Yogi.

Beer yoga is by far the most popular in the beer fitness trends. There are several yoga studios that host monthly events.  Sacred Thread hosts Yoga on Tap (my personal favorite) at various breweries across the city and The Georgia Beer Garden hosts Yoga and Beer with Jen every third Thursday of the month. Both events have an admission fee that include a 60 minute yoga practice for all levels followed by a beer tasting.

Join a Run Group.

Those that prefer to pound the pavement might enjoy a running group. Social running groups like Running for Brew Buckhead meets for a weekly 5K and a stop afterwards for beer at a neighborhood bar. Running for Brews has numerous groups around the country; the list can be found on the website. If you’re looking for a little more fun, the Brew Mile is a yearly event sponsored by Beer Fit Running Series. The race includes a beer every quarter mile and ends with two post-race brews along with other goodies. Cities and dates are listed on the website.
