San Francisco, Calif. (August 14, 2018) — Sufferfest Beer Co., maker of functional beer worthy of athletes and adventurers, is proud to be TransRockies Run official 2018 beer partner. The coveted position levels up Sufferfest’s commitment to their trail running and ultra running community for the six-day, 120-mile, and 20,000-foot elevation gain race through the Colorado Rockies.

“We love being the finish line beer for badass feats of athleticism and grit. TransRockies is one of our favorite kinds of Type II fun,” says Margaret Link, Sufferfest marketing director. “There’s nothing like cracking a cold beer to celebrate a good effort.”

The event spans six days, with stages broken into segments from 13.3 to 24.5 miles. Capping each leg is “Chillville”— a refreshment arena where exhausted participants are greeted with a cold beer and other amenities and experiences.

Sufferfest’s “beer with benefits” features high-powered ingredients like blackcurrant, salt, and bee pollen, all with an eye towards bettering your ability to perform and recover, but also bettering that post-sweat celebration.

“We are so excited to be working with Sufferfest! Their beer is delicious and our runners definitely love finishing the day with a well-earned cold one that truly acknowledges their feat. We’ve never gone through beer as quickly as we are in 2018,” said Kevin “Houda” McDonald of TransRockies Run.

Sufferfest Beer Company replaces Michelob Ultra as the title beer sponsor.
