Billings TrailNet has been putting a charge in the Billings community for 20 years by raising money Ales for Trails and giving the proceeds to the City of Billings to develop multiuse trails for everyone to enjoy.
Help us celebrate the event’s 20th birthday on Sept. 10, 2021, at ZooMontana! This outdoor venue is an ideal gathering spot for trail enthusiasts who can ride to the celebration down the popular Shiloh Road trail.
We look forward to enjoying live music by Counting Coup, the Brian Zoller/Jodie Johnston duo and Lindsey Jacobsen and the Caledonians!
As always, there will be more than 50 local and regional microbrews, a variety of wines and nonalcoholic drinks, Giant Beer Pong and Silent Disco!
Ales for Trails guests also have the opportunity to win the coveted New Belgium Fat Tire Bike donated by Briggs Distributing, plus a Traeger Grill from Ace Hardware, a Yeti cooler from Big R, or a backpacking bundle from REI, which includes a tent, sleeping bag and mattress.
To add a competitive edge, breweries at Ales for Trails are awarded trophies for the three most popular beers. Gold, Silver and Bronze Pedal awards have taken the shape of bicycle pedals, beer taps and even unusual lamps. This year, realtor Jodie Stovall, the executive director of BEST, Billings Environmentally Sustainable Transportation RePEDAL, which is a nonprofit that promotes benefits of bicycling, is creating the awards with bike parts in the shape of antler mounts.
The past 20 years of Ales for Trails has helped Billings TrailNet raise more than $1M for the trail system, and donate more than $600,000 to 18 different trails in Billings.
Guests are encouraged to be vaccinated and follow Covid-safe guidelines such as masks and distancing from other groups while celebrating at Ales for Trails so everyone can enjoy the event in a safe and responsible manner.
Ales for Trails tickets are on sale online online, or at sponsor locations, including Yellowstone Fitness, The Base Camp, The Spoke Shop and The Bike Shop.
