Bottoms Up Beer Run

The Bottoms Up Beer Run is a fun 4K that combines running (or walking) with homebrewed beer and cider along the way.

Come join us for a fun day of running and drinking homebrew while we raise money for children's cancer research. Proceeds from the race benefit St. Baldrick’s and SAAZ.

Commander SAAZ


Fellow Brewers,

We regret to inform you that Commander SAAZ Interplanetary Homebrew Blastoff events have been cancelled this year due to Hurricane Irma.

The venue which was to host our events sustained major damage and had to cease operations for the foreseeable future. Other venues that would be able to host are booked or damaged themselves. We made every effort to bring the CSAAZ weekend to fruition, however due to the storm we fell short this year and we are truly sad that it’s come to this.

The competition portion is still on! All of the beer is currently being judged (wherever we can find power) and we are taking our time to make sure each entry gets the respectful and thorough feedback you have come to expect from our Florida circuit competitions. That being said we will be sending a follow up email with new judging dates, if you wish to come help us finish up with judging 1st round, 2nd round and BOS.

Medals will be awarded and we are putting together some sort of livestream event, to give recognition to all the Brewers that placed. We want to give you as good a competition atmosphere as we can sans venue.

We appreciate your patience with us as we work hard to finish up judging and get the results out. We commit to having this done in the next couple weeks.

Hotel and lodging info will be handled by the venue (Doubletree).

Cancellation emails are currently going out for all rooms booked. For meal/party tickets we will be working to refund either by PayPal or reimbursement check depending on your original form of payment.

Thank you for your entries and anticipated attendance at our event, we truly wish we could have welcomed you all and shown you a great time. Look forward to an out of this world event next year!
