Bublr & A Beer

Jump on a Bublr with us for a casual spring ride on the Hank Aaron State Trail between two popular destinations in the Menomonee River Valley - City Lights Brewing Company and Miller Park. Jump on a Bublr with us for a casual ride on the Hank Aaron State Trail between two popular destinations (and Bublr stations!) in the Menomonee River Valley - City Lights Brewing and Miller Park. Along the way, we'll stop to talk about some of the sights, quiz you on your Valley facts, step back into history and this area’s significance in carrying Milwaukee’s name across the country, and some innovative landscaping that protects our natural resources. We'll ride a casual four miles roundtrip between the Valley's two Bublr stations and share a cheers with a complimentary beer at City Lights at the tour's culmination. City Lights has an awesome menu if you're interested in sticking around for dinner. Bublr Bikes and Menomonee Valley Partners are teaming up to bring you this ride. The Menomonee River Valley has seen a major transformation in the last 20 years, including City Lights Brewing Company, Bublr bike stations, and the much-loved Hank Aaron State Trail. Please arrive by 4:45pm to claim and adjust your bike. This fun ride is limited to 20 riders - reserve your spot today! Your $20 gets you a whole lot - the tour, use of a Bublr, and a beer upon our return to City Lights Brewing. Please arrive by 4:45pm to claim and adjust your bike.

Ultimate Beer Run 3.7K

The Ultimate Beer Run is a high energy run/walk with hops, high fives, a mid-point beer, and a finisher beer at City Lights Brewing and Third Space Brewing. Wow! Two complimentary beers and you don’t even have to wait until the end to cash in! Half of the group will start at Third Space Brewing and make their way, some faster some slower, to City Lights Brewing where they will enjoy a delicately handcrafted beer. The other half of the group will start at City Lights and head to Third Space where they will enjoy their very own freshly brewed beer. After getting a taste of goodness at the midway point, registrants complete the loop to their starting points where their taste buds will bask in the goodness of yet another beer! You can run, jog, walk, or crawl this 3.7k. After rehydrating at the finish line, stick around for the day’s entertainment: food, fun, more beer, yard games, and the best hits from 1999 to celebrate 20 years of transformation in the Menomonee River Valley. Top off the fun by donning your best 90s garb. The Valley isn’t the only thing that’s changed in the last 20 years! For just $35 ($45 after September 8), you get: • to tell all your friends you dominated the Ultimate Beer Run (and we’ll leave the definition up to you!), • innumerable high fives as you pass runners going in the opposite direction, • TWO, yes TWO, incredible Milwaukee-made complimentary beers, • a super soft commemorative T-shirt, • $1 off each beer at City Lights Brewing and Third Space Brewing for the WHOLE day on September 21 (block the day!), • the satisfaction of knowing that all net proceeds will benefit Menomonee Valley Partners (MVP), a nonprofit that has been working to make the Menomonee River Valley the best it can be for the last 20 years. The first male and female finisher at each brewery will get the best gold medal of all, a growler full of a freshly brewed beer of their choice. You must drink your midpoint beer to claim a prize!
