Beer and triathlons just go together, don’t they?

Austin pro triathlete Kelly Williamson will share a pint – along with some training tips and course advice – during a question and answer session from 5-7 p.m. April 30 at Hops & Grain Brewery, 507 Calles Street.

Williamson won last year’s Ironman Texas, which is set for May 16 this year in The Woodlands, near Houston.

She has competed as a professional triathlete since 2002 and is the first to admit that she enjoys a cold beer and a juicy burger after run. That’s why Hops & Grain signed on as one of her sponsors.

Hops & Grain founder and former triathlete Josh Hare will moderate the session, which is free and open to the public. Triathletes of all skill levels are invited to come learn more about the sport.

Because learning more about Ironman Texas goes well with a pint of beer, don’t you think?
