AUSTIN, Texas, February 12, 2019 – High Five Events, one of the largest privately owned event production companies in the United States, brings Oskar Blues Brewery back as the Official Beer Sponsor for the 2019 Ascension Seton Austin Marathon presented by Under Armour®. For the third year in a row, the Austin Marathon will feature Oskar Blues signature Austin-brewed beers at the finish line festival’s beer garden for finishers aged 21 and over.
“If there’s anyone who deserves a cold, fresh beer, it’s the person who just finished the Austin Marathon or Austin Half Marathon,” said Oskar Blues Marketing Director Dave Taylor. “We’re honored to share our brews with those hard-working finishers and with the City of Austin.”
Oskar Blues Brewery Austin will offer finishers and spectators Austin-brewed craft beers on race day. The Austin Marathon’s beer garden will provide runners and their friends and family a place to gather, relax and enjoy select Oskar Blues’ craft brews post-race. Available beers will include Austin-brewed voluminously hopped Dale’s Pale Ale, refreshing Mama’s Little Yella Pils, and sessionable Pinner Throwback IPA.
“The popularity of the Oskar Blues beer garden at our 3-block-long finish line festival continues to grow,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “Participants love celebrating with friends and family with a cold beer that is brewed right here in Austin.”
