For 10 years, the Sir Walter Miler has brought the best milers in the world to Raleigh on the first Friday of August. The Sir Walter Miler was born and endures because of a local running scene that thrives on, and supports, excellence. We wanted to create a beer and brand that matched the event.

Ian VanGundy of Blackbird Brewery has made some of our favorite beers over the years, and his accolades speak for themselves. From medals at GABF to the World Beer Cup, we couldn’t think of a better brewer (and fellow runner) to bring this vision to life

Years in the making, the partnership is a new venture that will aim to create runner-friendly beers, without sacrificing taste or quality.
