The Flyathlon is a new multi-sport event that integrates three activities that are currently surging in popularity in the Western U.S.; trailrunning, fly fishing, and craft beer. While many enjoy these activities independently, we have found over the last several years that putting them together is even more enjoyable. Simply put, many of the best and most beautiful places to fish are way back in the woods, and the quickest way to get back to these remote places to maximize fishing time is to trail run. And once you have run back from that mountain lake or stream, all of that effort is rewarded with high quality, local craft beer. Run. Fish. Beer.
The goal of the Rare Fish Rare Beer Project is to partner with conservation-minded breweries to develop innovative, highly local, limited-release craft beers that focus on native fish within their home watersheds. With these rare beers, we seek to educate craft beer drinkers about the diverse challenges facing these native fish species while simultaneously raising money for projects that benefit their preservation.
