ALWAYS AN ATHLETE
Welcome to the Athletic community! We are an active bunch of weekend warriors, amateur athletes, professional parents, and regular folks who love Athletic Brewing. Athletic Ambassadors have earned a place on this page with their enthusiasm and dedication to the brand. Our goal is twofold: 1) To highlight their accomplishments, and 2) To showcase those who truly believe in our mission here at Athletic.
Professional Obstacle Course Racer, Vermont native, and conditioning coach for High School and Collegiate athletes. Ryan encapsulates the Athletic Brewing way of life in the most positive way possible. He competes as one of the top professional athletes in Spartan Race where he finished the 2019 US National Series in 3rd place. Passionate about mentoring young athletes, Ryan works with youth athletes to teach them how to move fluently, care for their body, and reach their peak athletic capability. As part of his training, he drinks Athletic to feel healthy at all times, but still enjoy a well-deserved beer once in awhile! Ryan has been shocking the sport of Spartan Racing this season and he is far from reaching his full stride.

Rachel is a model Athletic ambassador. In July of 2017, she found herself in the dreaded and deadly obese territory, and was not the wife, mother, daughter, or friend she wanted to be. Rachel's journey started by changing one thing - swapping high alcohol craft beers for NA beverage options. Going alcohol free opened the door to many new healthy habits and opportunities. To date, she's lost 75 pounds, and has been reconnected with her inner athlete. Thanks to Athletic, she no longer suffers from beer envy when hanging out with friends, and most importantly knows she can enjoy beer without compromising any of the positive momentum that’s happening en route towards a healthier lifestyle! Most recently, and to celebrate her 40th birthday, she completed over 28 miles of the PCT to raise money for Make-A-Wish foundation.

As an athlete, Eric was tired of waking up groggy after too many craft beers at local Portland breweries. His training and races have improved greatly since he gave up beer, but still loved his IPAs, and was excited to find the best non-alcoholic beer ever! (his words). Eric has run over 150 Marathons and Ultra Marathons, consisting mostly of marathons, 31 milers and 50 milers, in addition to the Rocky Raccoon 100 miler in Texas. (Came in 3rd-Masters) and recently reaching his goal of running a 100 miler in under 24 hours.(Pigtails 100 miler-in Washington 22:15).

We set out on this mission of great beer for healthy & active adults hoping we'd find a community of people waiting for us. It's been awesome to have so many of you with the same interests reach out and ask how to help spread the word. Well, we'd love to have you help.
Athletic Brand Ambassadors come in many forms - those who love great beer, good food, having fun, being a weekend warrior, being a mindful parent, and those who want to share their amateur or professional athlete status with the world. We are proud of living healthy, active, mindful lives. We seek to drink the best and share our discovery of non-alcoholic beer with our friends. We congregate on the trails, at triathlons, at marathons, at parks, in tap rooms, at ski resorts, and anywhere good, active times are being had.
Some perks of being an Athletic Ambassador are branded gear, occasional race sponsorships, network access, and ability to represent the Athletic brand both digitally and in person.
If you're interested in becoming an ambassador, we'd love to hear from you. Please fill out our application and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks!
