What's the Beer Stroll about?

It's a stroll with beer. We have found that folks come with friends who want a taste of beer and something to do. So we send you off with a taste of beer. You walk a mile. You have more beer. It's fun! You also get the same schwag as your over-achieving front or spouse who's running the full race. You don't have to be over 21 to take part in the Beer Stroll. Only if you want the beer part.
