Beer & Running: Inside The Running Shop and Hops

Paul Rakitin opened The Running Shop in July 2013 in a strip mall on the outskirts of Morgan Hill, Calif., purely to get into the specialty running retail business. But he always had the urge to serve beer too. So this past summer, he and his wife, Rene, relocated the running store to a renovated 3,000-square-foot location in downtown Morgan Hill and reopened with a new section of the business—a taproom that serves up 54 different craft beers (including four with nitro taps). They changed the name to The Running Shop and Hops, and, so far, business has been booming. Click through the photo gallery below to get a glimpse inside this unique shop.
