Four breweries, four races, and four finish line beers added up to a marathon of fun for the 2016 Race To The Taps, powered by Asheville’s Mix 96.5. If you tapped every event, you earned your medal running a cumulative 26.2 miles, and we had such a good time with you along the way! Coming in 2017, Race To The Taps returns with new distances, courses, and breweries. Keep watching this space for details. Pre-registration specials for the new year begin in December, so you can give the gift of a beer run.

Former TV weatherguy who never got it right, til the day I predicted mostly cloudy skies with a 100% chance of unemployment. I've survived stints as a morning radio host, stay-at-home dad, and lab assistant. All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
