Holland, MI, March 9, 2020 — New Holland Brewing, craft brewery and distillery based in Holland, MI, today announced a partnership with Ragnar Trail Series as the race’s Official Beer Partner. Renowned for flavorful and unique craft beer offerings, New Holland will offer runners and attendees high-quality craft beer, and opportunities to not only interact with the brand but to enjoy its thoughtfully constructed brews post-race or post-loop.
The Ragnar Trail Series launched with five races in 2013, and has grown to 19 in 2020. The race entails teams of 8 running roughly 120 miles, in three repeating loops, on wilderness trails that meander through mountains, valleys, forests and dales. Overnight camping in a communal campground, Ragnar Village, offers a location for downtime in between loops and the New Holland booth will undoubtedly be the spot to convene and enjoy a craft beverage or two.
“Ragnar Trail Series is thrilled to announce this partnership with New Holland Brewing,” said Tanner Bell, CEO and Founder of Ragnar. “They are a great addition to our event series, offering refreshing beers post-race and elevating what the Ragnar Trail Series is about; community and outdoors immersion – we’re like summer camp for adults – with trail running and race medals.”
“We are excited for this year’s race series, and to be involved on a partnership level, having been Ragnar enthusiasts for quite some time,” said Adam Dickerson, Brand Manager for New Holland Brewing. “Our newly announced Lightpoint Functional White Ale, made with coconut water, raw honey and orange rind and with only 86 calories, will surely be the highlight of many competitors’ post-race experience. Alongside a number of our other delicious brews that suit the outdoors and active lifestyle, we are thrilled to bring that sense of community, joy and achievement to all Ragnar Trail racers and attendees.”
The partnership is a natural fit, given that the Trail Series perfectly embodies New Holland’s passion and dedication to community and the outdoors. Together, New Holland and the Ragnar Trail Series will work to construct rich, collaborative, community-building experiences for everyone.
