 Zombies Descend Upon Right Brain Brewery

Not rain, not wind, not even 45 degree temperatures were enough to discourage the zombie takeover of Right Brain Brewery.  Zombie brides, zombie nurses, zombie ninjas, zombie butchers, zombie dogs on leashes and zombie babies in strollers all waited for 9am on a brisk October Saturday morning.
9am, the official start of the 5th Annual TC Zombie Run that begins and ends at Right Brain Brewery.  Walk, run, crawl and put on your best walking dead face for this 5k course that takes you from the SOFO district through the residential streets of Traverse City.  Locals braved the cold and lingered in the streets for a chance to cheer on and take pictures of  1,300 participants in their zombie best.  

At the finish line, a cold Right Brain brew, zombie cake, and prizes for those finishing first in their age group and best female/male costume.  An “undead”fully great time is had by all as you welcome in the spirit of Halloween, and who doesn’t love craft beer and cake?

Most people just call me Ryder.  I used to be the girl who drank cheap beer.  You know, whatever you could get a 24 pack of for under $12.  All that changed while bartending my way through my second Bachelors degree.  Now my boyfriend calls me "beer snob" because I only drink the good stuff (and PBR, I still love PBR!!) I picked up the hobby of homebrewing in early 2012 and have made it to the "experimenting" stage.  Not bad, not bad at all....although there was that one batch...oh never mind!  I just love beer!
