Beer Mile: The Film




What started as an underground event has transformed into a wildly-competitive, international phenomenon. How is it possible to run a sub-4 minute mile while chugging 4 beers? How will a tight-knit community, born out of making running a little more fun, receive Olympian Shelby Houlihan who is currently serving a suspension from track and field? Relationships will be tested as athletes from around the world strive to break records, make friends, and fight to be crowned Beer Mile world champions.

If you asked us how much money we would spend on the Beer Mile in 2023, we would probably have chuckled and said "hopefully not enough to piss off our wives." Yet, here we are after an absolute rollercoaster ride of a year. Not only have our families and friends supported us hosting the biggest Beer Mile World Classic ever, but the community as a whole launched the Beer Mile into the stratosphere, amassing more than 30 million views.

While this has been an amazing year for the Beer Mile, much of the production came from our personal bankroll. We felt that it would be a disservice to all of you to not pursue putting this crazy story into a film - but we need your help! It would mean the world to us if you supported the documentary on Kickstarter

If you have been following along for a while, you know we never do anything half-assed. We will be entering this documentary into film festivals around the globe, aspiring to win awards and bring the Beer Mile to even more eyeballs. Your support allows us to give this film all the tender love and care needed to accomplish this.
