Kayak & drink beer at Mission Bay for charity


Come on in, the water’s just fine! Get up, get out and paddle or kayak around Mission Bay’s Vacation Isle at the second annual Pints and Paddles for a Cause event on Sunday, Nov. 15.

The day of water sports will begin with two-mile pro race heat from 9 to 10 a.m. and an amateur race heat from 10 to 11 a.m. After the competition, event-goers are welcome to join in on the recreational paddle around the cove. Pint and Paddles aims to raise funds for Team River Runner, a non-profit that leads wounded veterans to recovery through kayak and paddling programs.

All participants will receive a glass to use for the event’s official after-party at Barefoot Bar and Grill from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The “Pints for A Cause” after-party will be filled to the brim with Ninanski Brewing beer to enjoy. The celebration will also feature live music from Private Domain, a raffle, prizes and a silent auction.

An event t-shirt, a Ninkaski Brewing Co. logo pint glass and a raffle ticket will be given to all participants. Attendees must bring their own SUP or kayak. Recreational paddlers can utilize equipment provided by Ninanski Brewing Co.

Tickets are $45 for pro race; $35 for amateur race; $15-$30 for recreational paddle.
