    Beer for C&V rides?

    What's the best beer for C&V rides?

    Not sayin' I'm buying!!!! well, maybe a round or two

    My votes: English ale (Fuller's London Pride), Stella Artois, and any good Munich pils.

    Never heard of any of these three! I knew this would be a productive thread!

    I like Texas brewed Shiner Bock. No cycling relation, but I like it. I do have a Peloton Pale Ale jersey though, supposedly brewed by New Belgium Brewery.

    Where are you in Dallas? I used to live in Bluffview, near Lovers and Inwood.

    I haven't seen any New Belgium here in Ann Arbor, but I have seen Shiners and Arrogant *******.

    I prefer a nice Bordeaux whilst riding my Gitane. With one (1) absinthe upon my arrival.

    Gotta be something German for the C & V crowd I would think. Think of it, a purity law in place since 1516. No powdercoating or brazeon off gelopping for that crowd. For me personally it would be Schells from New Ulm, MN.

    Alas I'm partial to good heavy German Hefe-Weizen, preferably dark, with Franziskaner Dunkles Hefe-Weizen being my favorite but I know of no establishment around here where you could drop in for a cold one after a ride and get one. Guess I could stop at the giant liquor emporium where you could land a small aircraft in their aisles and pick some up but the most bike freindly establishment in town where you can bring your bike inside after a long ride, feel comfortable in your bike clothes and even watch the Tour is an Irish pub so there is always a selection of Irish and English type beers. New Belgium Brewing is just up the road in Ft. Collins so there is often a selection from their products as well and I'll typically go with the Sunshine Wheat. Too light and citrousy but all the wheat beers around here are like that. Apparently none of the brew masters have ever been to Munich to see how actual wheat beer is made. Shiner Bock is good stuff but I haven't noticed it around here.

    Homebrew! (he says as someone who used to grow his own hops and fabricate mash steamers with old pressure cookers and copper tubing).

    Are you in Boulder? Applejack Liquors there is incredible!

    What's the Irish place?

    Home brew or, better yet, something sold out of a keg under the same roof where it was made.

    Little further north than Lover's, I'm up near where Dallas meets Plano. Coit & Campbell, diagonal across the intersection from Richardson Bike Mart.

    Anything from the New Glarus Brewing Co - Fat Squirrel, Spotted Cow, etc. I organized a ride from there in the spring, it was nice.

    The Grumpy Troll makes some good beer too. The HHH ride is very close to that.

    It's summertime, so put all the thick, heavy, dark stuff away 'til fall and grab an icy cold lager.
    If you're lucky enough to still have a local brew (and I saw Shiner mentioned) go for that. If not, Rolling Rock is my stand-by.
    Geary's out of Portland straddles the light/dark line nicely (think of a VERY pale IPA). Alas, White Fox from Red Pond Brewery in Skowhegan no longer seems to be available.

    For the Summer, I prefer a nice Pale Ale. Since I'm in MI at the moment, a Bell's would top the list. Two Hearted Ale would be my first choice.

    Young's Double Chocolate Stout

    Or Bell's Oberon

    But still nothing touches the drinkability of Eel River Organic Amber Ale which is only found on the Left Coast

    Corona with a lime. Or a nice Modelo Especial. I like Mexican beers in the summer.

    The local brewery just released a new one.

    Slipstream Cream Ale

    alas no photo: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/phillip...le/88794/6162/

    But the marketing is better than the beer sadly... but phillips is an awesome brewery.

    After a ride I do prefer something in a German style Pilsner... and I am an ale man to be sure... My last name is Bier for crying out load and my family is from Germany... in anycase since visiting germany and tasting a real pilsner I have come to like Okanagan Springs 1516 Bavarian Lagar which is the closest beer to anything german I have tasted here besides the imports... Becks is always good of course.

    Ok, I've rethought my answer, and given my penchant for dutch bikes,
    and subsequently the Spring Classics only one beer fits the bill:



    only beer I know of that sponsors a race ( ok Coors did it in the 70's with the Coors Classic)

    Shiner is a big supporter of cycling in Central Texas. They sponsered the Livestrong Challenge and Ride for the Roses in the past. Last year they had a different beer sponser. I am not sure who it was, but I only had one free beer.
    The Shiner BASH is an annual bike ride from Austin and San Antonio to the brewery in Shiner. Afterwards there is a big party with beer sausage, and live music. You should try it next year. It is in late April or early May.

    For me it's gotta be Black Butte Porter:



    I don't have the jersey, but thought it was fitting to post it. Plus, I gotta plug Oregon brews.

    <<<< Look.

    If you're in Michigan in the summer it has got to be a Bell's Oberon. And they sponsor a race team, too.
