Payette Brewing hosted a release party for its new Onward Shay! Ruby Red IPA Friday night.

Everyone who signed up for the inaugural Onward Shay! Boise marathon at the event was treated to a free pint of the new brew.

The race starts and finishes at the brewery, so an official beer seemed like the perfect pairing.

It was created in honor of boise runner Shay Hirsch who died of cancer two years ago.

The race can be used as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.

It will be held October 30.
