Bent Paddle Brewing Co. Is a New NSIM Sponsor!

The NorthShore Inline Marathon is incredibly excited to welcome Bent Paddle Brewing Co. on as a sponsor for the 2017 event! Bent Paddle’s Duluth roots and their delicious beer make for a great partnership.

The entire NSIM crew wants to wholeheartedly welcome Bent Paddle on as an Advanced Sponsor. They will be providing beer for our VIP area, kegs for the post-race party/awards ceremony at Grandma’s Sports Garden, and free pints for our Skate ‘N Sip skaters.

From Bent Paddle co-founder Laura Mullen: “We are so excited to come on as a new sponsor of the NorthShore Inline Marathon as well as being their new Skate n’ Sip weekly brewery meet-up location this year! Bent Paddle Brewing Co. loves supporting all local outdoor, human-power recreation so it seemed like a perfect fit. We look forward to a beautiful skate in September followed by a great local Bent Paddle craft beer – Cheers!”
