Do you have a fitness goal on tap for 2020?

If so, you can lean into your resolution while also enjoying locally brewed beer every Sunday afternoon.

The “bend and beer” event kicks off on Jan. 5 at Wild Heaven Beer’s Avondale Estates location.

Starting at 1 p.m., attendees can enjoy a free, guided class from Innercise Yoga. The upbeat workout is meant to be inclusive for all skill levels.

Afterward, you can cool down with a cold brew on the house.

The brewery, 135B Maple St, Avondale Estates, serves up the stretching and suds combo every week.

Attendees should bring their own mat, water bottle and a valid ID, if you’d like to indulge in a post-workout beer.

Wild Heaven first opened at their Avondale Estates location in 2014, after beginning contract brewing in 2010.

It’s the brain child of Wild Heaven president Nick Purdy and brewer Eric Johnson.

In the years since, the duo behind the brewery — makers of the popular Emergency Drinking Beer — have added another location. Earlier this year, they opened a 21,600 square-feet shop in the West End.

Yoga sessions also take place at 11 a.m. on Saturdays at the West End location, 1010 White St SW, Atlanta.

Purdy previously told the AJC that in addition to making quality beer, they hope to be a "true asset to the community."

“Yes, we want people to drink our beer and use our event space, but at the end of the day, you don’t do this type of thing unless want to be good for the community,” he said.
