Event description



Paddle For Pints is a fun and memorable way to experience up to five local breweries, all accessible via the Boardman River. Paddle for Pints will launch four waves of paddlers on all event dates; each wave is limited to the first 50 participants. All Paddle for Pints events begin with a check-in at The Filling Station Microbrewery, where we encourage participants to enjoy lunch and a beer, then proceed to launch from Hull Park, steps away.

After launching from Hull Park, just a short walk from The Filling Station Microbrewery on Boardman Lake, the group will paddle to Right Brain Brewery, Rare Bird Brewpub, end up at Clinch Park then walk to The Workshop Brewery and Monkey Fist Brewing Co.
