Unlikely as it might sound, running and beer drinking might go together better than you expect. Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, the founder of Brooklyn-based Evil Twin Brewing and former beer director at Noma and author of our guide Where to Drink Beer, was a serious athlete before he was a serious beer lover, running for Denmark in the World Junior Cross-Country Championship in Budapest back in 1994.

Though you’re more likely to find him in a bar than on the track these days, he hasn’t forgotten his love of running. Working with Sam Anderson – fellow runner and former beverage director at the acclaimed NYC restaurant Mission Chinese Food – he’s developed Race Day, a sour IPA with pineapple, aloe vera and – pay attention athletes – electrolytes!



Anderson, who also designed the track-inspired label on the can, says the beer is also good for “endurance and adventure athletes, runners, rock climbers, cyclists, and even Muay Thai fighters.”
