It’s our first-ever major event at Perfect Plain Brewing Company, and we’re so excited to band together with Vinyl Music Hall, Breakthru Beverage and John Hodgdon and Bluewater Wealth Strategies to bring you the first Perfect Mile this Saturday, October 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It’s one part Beer Mile Relay, one part free live music block party in the heart of downtown. We will have Garden Street completely shut down for your enjoyment of watching the race as well as a stage right in the heart of it all for an incredible concert with two nationally touring acts.

So what’s the Perfect Mile? We can catch you up on all the logistics and race rules – AND YOU CAN REGISTER YOUR 2-PERSON OR 4-PERSON TEAM – at PerfectPlainBeerMile.com or right here on our Facebook Event Page.

What’s going on?

It’s a half beer relay, half street party taking place in the middle of Garden Street between Palafox and Jefferson Street. We will start the morning at 10 a.m. with the races, but we’ll have bars, beer and cocktails, live music, food trucks, football on TV and art booths going all day long.

Here’s a look at the map:
