We see the same thing every year: people make these uber-healthy New Year's resolutions, then they abandon them before we even get to February. We've heard them all, from "I'm going to run more!" to "I'm going to start CrossFit!" and "I want to do yoga every day!" Part of the problem is actually finding the motivation to make your resolution happen. 

To kick off a healthy and balanced 2017, we've created the Brew Year's Resolution challenge to get as many people as possible out to fitness activities happening at breweries, restaurants, and bottle shops around Charlotte. We've found that enjoying a beer with friends after your workout is a pretty good motivational tool! 

But we wanted to give people even more incentive to keep their fitness resolutions—so we partnered with local breweries to offer weekly prize packs to those who come out to beer fitness events around the Queen City this January.

Read on to learn more about how you can win prizes from Triple C, Legion, Free Range, and Lenny Boy for sticking to your 2017 fitness resolutions!

How It Works

The Brew Year's Resolution challenge is pretty simple: 

  • Work For Your Beer will attend a different beer fitness event every day of January. (You can see our schedule for the month below, or you can find it again later on the Calendar page!)
  • Each Sunday of the month, we'll send out the week's schedule as well as details about the week's prize pack on our blog, social media channels, and Weekly Brewsletter. 
  • If you come to any of the events we attend each week, you'll have the chance to enter to win that week's local brewery prize pack. 

How to Win Prizes

In order to enter to win each week's prize pack of local brewery swag, you first have to show up to the events listed on the calendar above.

Once you're there, entering to win is easy! All you have to do is:

  • Show us that you follow Work For Your Beer on Facebook
  • Show us that you follow the week's prize pack sponsor on Facebook
  • Write your name and email address down on a raffle ticket​

Then we'll choose a winner at the end of each week! You'll be contacted at the email you provided if you were chosen as the winner. 

The Grand Prize

In addition to the weekly prize packs, we'll also be offering one grand prize to the person who attends the most beer fitness events on the calendar above! We'll be keeping track of how many events each person attends using the raffle tickets they submit at each event. We'll give updates each week on the Top 3 people who have attended the most activities.

Whoever comes to the most events on the Brew Year's Resolution calendar throughout January will be the lucky winner of four tickets to the Queen City Brewers Festivalso be sure to get out to as many of these events as possible if you want to win! 

What Could You Win

Each Sunday of the month, we'll announce who the week's prize pack sponsor will be, what their prize pack includes, and some details about how they're involved in the beer fitness scene. We'll kick things off with our first prize pack sponsor, Triple C Brewing Co.

Week 1: Triple C Brewing Co. Prize Pack

  • Triple C hat
  • 4-pack of 3C IPA
  • 4-pack of Golden Boy
  • Limited edition Triple C backpack cooler (fits 18 cans)

Beer Fitness at Triple C Brewing Co. 

If you didn't already know, Triple C hosts two of the most popular run clubs and yoga classes in Charlotte—on the same night, in fact! You heard correctly: Thursday nights at 6:30 PM, you can either bend for your beer with an athletically inspired yoga class led by The Yoga Dude, or you can join the runners for a 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 mile run through South End. Then runners and yogis can mingle while they enjoy their post-workout beers and some delicious burgers from the Bleu Barn food truck. 

Good Luck!

As a reminder, here's our schedule for the first week of January. Stop by these events to enter to win the Triple C prize pack above:

The Triple C run club was voted Best Beer Run in Charlotte in both 2015 and 2016 in the ACA Beer Run Challenge, and the Triple C yoga class was named one of the most challenging beer workouts in the Queen City—so whatever activity you choose, you're in for a good workout (and a great ​beer!). 

We can't wait to see all you Charlotteans out there living healthy, balanced lifestyles at beer fitness activities throughout the city this month!
