    I gave up "adult" beverages a couple of years ago. Inexplicably, a brain tumor completely removed my taste or desire for my beloved beer, wine, and frozen margaritas. I asked the neurosurgeon if he could also "fix" that during the craniotomy ... but it's all for the best given the calories, the post-intake downtime, and the side effects alcohol has with some meds I have to take now. There's been beer and wine sitting in my fridge since then; I have no desire for either and probably they aren't drinkable by now to serve to guests.

    After a bike ride my beverage of choice once I get home is diet coke; I also drink water, a little G2, and coffee/latte/iced versions of both. Wal*Mart has some "Sam's choice" flavored carbonated water drinks in key lime & mandarin orange that I also like. Kind of tangy, not too sweet.

    After my rides the drink of choice ios recovorite with fruit blended into a smoothie and a can of coke. Everything is then good in the world. This is my combo after hard effort rides. Normal rides it's just recovorite.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    I think that I have had one drink that has had any sort of alcohol in the last 10 years or so. What is strange, a few weeks ago after pounding out a 70 training ride, I had the urge for one while out to dinner with Mrs. Hill-Pumper. I didn't have one, but I had the first urge to have one in years.

    Oddly enough I am paying to go on a 100 mile ride Saturday just so I can have free beer and BBQ at the 98 mile rest stop. Maybe I should ride the route backwards.

    The scene where he goes to see Brian Cox at the bar. It's called Kitty Kiernans. It's between 97th and 98th Street on 3rd ave In Brooklyn. A 1/4 mile off the bike path that runs under the Verrenzano bridge

    A lot of peeps drink G2. I've switched to powerade zero. 0 Calories and just as tasteless as G2.

    Mmmm... beer.. Pacifico, Fat Tire, Speckled Cow, Aventinus, Three Floyds... oh yeah baby...
    but not after a ride. After a ride it's banana/strawberry/carrot/yoghurt/tomato/honey shake with a scoop of protein powder for recovery. Yum yum.

    I often have beer after a ride. Of course, I've also been known to have beer before or even during a ride!

    On my first group ride with a new group of people near my home, we rode 26 miles and then after finishing everyone said to come back to a local pub for a couple drinks with them. We were still in our bike shorts and just cooling down when two of the guys with us ordered tequila shots!! I cracked up laughing. They said that they don't normally do this but just had a wild hair I guess. The rest of us were more laid back with ice water and a cold Corona!

    right after the ride I drink water and stretch out, or I pay for it later. once I've cooled down, I often like to sip a bevvie... name the beer and I've had it after a ride, probably a few most of you have never heard of either (creemore springs, brick brewing, and the oh so hoppy sargent major)
    gravity, friction, physical exhaustion: these are the demons you must slay in order to be a cyclist.

    Somewhere around mile 180 the pancakes started sounding like a bad idea. Then around 230 they sounded good again. Then we finished 250 and Mark had coffee at his house; that's as far as I got. Coffee and toast.

    Beer AND whiskey, please! I started biking to jusify my drinking, then discovered that nothing beats a beer or three after a 45 mile ride, so now I bike to enhance my drinking. When I started biking, I had a beer or two before or even during a ride, but after I started going more than 10 miles, I realized that just didn't work. And then the post-ride beer isn't so special anymore . . .

    Tomato in that? ...interesting. Perhaps I'll try that.

    Never been a beer drinker... but my next bike project will involve painting the frame "Guiness Brown"

    Iced coffee is my drink of choice.

    My commute home is late at night ~ no coffee then... just agua frio ...and more and more... and finally a glass of milk before nitey-nite.

    Oh, back in my bad days I'd get off work at the restaurant after putting back 2 or 3 and ride the 5 miles home and have a few more. These days I've cut far back, but a beer while I tinker and a beer or two after a long road or mountain ride are always enjoyable. I must say, though, enjoying a beer with friends is always preferable to having one alone.

    So I'm not the only one who ever does carBEERo loading before a ride? A nice Hefeweizen w/ lemon is great about a half-hour before.

    We should not forget that beer was the original recovery drink and "power bar" for cyclists... well not just beer but stouts. Lots of good stuff in there other than the -OH eh!

    I rarely if ever drink alcoholic beverages - I've never liked the taste.
