Heather and co-host Mike Moran are on-site at last weekend’s Great Beerd Run 5K for this show. The event, held Saturday, Nov. 12 on the grounds of the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, celebrates all things beards (natural and otherwise) and Michigan beer.

Runners show up donning beards of their own making — and beards that they carefully crafted themselves (race swag includes your own knit beard cap and a bottle opener finisher medal).

Big BeerdThree breweries are featured at this untimed fun run: Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City, Shorts Brewing Company in Bellaire and Beards Brewery in Petoskey. This Michigan craft beer makers not only part of the post-run festivities, they also offer up tastings on the course.

Heather and Mike talk with race director Kelly Yauk pre-run, sharing the race atmosphere and vibe, and then post-run, runner and brewer Jeff Houser joins in the conversation to talk about his love of the Great Beerd Run (he’s won it a couple of times in the past, though this year he took a different approach to the event). The guys’ interest in wooden ships also comes up…hear how they all try to bring it back to running and beer. It’s an interesting and fun show, to say the least — and there’s even some live music in the background.
