6th Not Annual St. Paddy’s Half K


Let’s play a game where we avoid mentioning the reason why this is the second time in three years that we have prepared to host the 6th now not annual St. Paddy’s Half K. Ready, go.

Some shirts happened. And some other unused swag, but that’s about it. Because March 2020.

That was surprisingly easy. Kind of like “running” 0.310686 of a mile. Which is why we host this spectacle of sport. Part of our mission is creating happy fun times, not sustainedly increased heart rates.

Wanna buy some tickets?

The Half K is happening Saturday March 18th, right where the beer is made, which is neat.

Tickets are available here.

Here’s the download on the day:

11:00: Drink free coffee provided by D & M Coffee while registerering

Noon: Group stretch it out with Brewer and Track Coach Josh

12:15: Half K heats begin

1:30-3:00: Live music with Celtic Jam Group

4:00 – 6:00: More live music with Killdeer String Band

8:00: [ the tap room ] closes

Plus a bunch of stuff sprinkled in throughout the day, such as but not limited to:

Food for purchase from Swiftfired Pizza and Tacos Califas

Festive costume contests and other shenanigans for prizes because, “I have a buttload of growlers to giveaway,” said Christina.

Meet Christina, event coordinator cousin extraordinaire , who is leading the crew in building a new Half K experience at the brewery. When she’s on the job, you know it’s gonna be a big time.

So like, how about some tickets for you?

More info you crave?

Your ticket includes:

One aluminum Irish Death pint

One beer ticket

One Irish Death handkerchief made just for this event by Shirtworks

Kids are cool. In general, and they are very welcome at this event. If you bring some, they may need to run the course more than once to get sufficiently tuckered out. There will also be games kids like.

When in doubt, ticket it out.

You know who else is cool? And so much more helpful than children? Sponsors. When the Irish Death logo shaped Bat Signal lit up the Kittitas Valley sky, local heroes of the business community responded. Not sure where we’re going with this metaphor from here, but just be sure to seek these fine providers of good goods and local services when you need stuff and things.

They are Batman.
