Adventure Club

Auburn is the Endurance Capital of the world and with some of the best hiking running and riding trails in California on our door step, we decided to create the Alehouse Adventure Club. Owners Lisa and Brian Ford have always had a love of the outdoors and obviously a passion for great beer so we combined the two! We are looking for some like-minded individuals that want to get together, head outside, get a sweat on and enjoy a great craft beer when we are done. You could say we are a beer club with an adventure problem.

The membership is $50 and includes:

  • Your membership card - valid until you have used all the punches!
  • 12 sessions with a certified personal trainer who is also a certified kayaking instructor and white-water rafting guide
  • 12 visits to the Annex or Alehouse where your beers are $1 off
  • $5 off your bill coupon
  • $10 off your bill coupon
  • One piece of member only limited-edition swag
  • $1 off a crowler fill 

We will offer two classes a week which will vary in the style of class. Our goal is to offer a variety of training so you can get a mixture of activities or pick and choose what classes you want to come to. We hope to offer: running, hiking, bootcamp workouts, yoga, Pilates and eventually extra sessions where we go kayaking, river rafting, mountain biking etc. Some events are kid friendly. Any children under 13 can attend these events for free but must still sign a waiver.

We also have a Facebook Group with more tips and tricks for health and wellness with videos and links for new workouts, stretching and more. 

You can sign up for a membership at the Alehouse at any time during regular business hours or at the beginning of any event! 

Half Marathon Training

We are so excited to be sponsoring the Shamrockin’ Half Marathon again this year in Sacramento on November 1st. We are organizing a team to run with us and providing a half marathon training course as part of the Adventure Club. Any level of runner can join and feel confident they will succeed! If you are already an established runner, you can join the training runs later when we are running a longer distance. You will need to register and pay for the event on your own but we will all run as a team! Look out for a 5k and 10k run to take place earlier in the summer for anyone who would like to build up to 13.1 miles!
