    what's your Beverage of Choice now that Cycling Season is winding down?

    I really try and limit my alcoholic beverages during the heavy cycling season. I'm sitting in a campground in Western NC enjoying a Negra Medelo after a nice 2hr bike ride in the mountains. Got to thinking about my favorites riding today:

    1-Margaritas on the rocks-anytime anywhere
    2-Red Italian Wine-while I'm in Italy!
    3-Dark Beer-1554 or Negra M
    4-Jack and Ginger

    I could very easily consume too much. Thankfully cycling minimizes the input.

    What are yours?

    Winding DOWN! the weather is finally tolerable in the Desert Southwest. It feels so good to ride and not melt. But favorite drinks are always a good topic-all year.

    Negra Modelo is a +10

    Fat Tire, Blue Paddle Dos Exquis Amber are close seconds.

    Red Wines in the winter, Whites in the Summer by the pool.

    I'm trying to perfect the old Gin Fizz for funzies. Late at night whenever I get bored.

    With a plate of fresh cut fruit, cashews and walnuts and maybe a cigar.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Even though it's prime riding weather here:

    1. A measure of Walker Green, Walker Black, or Jamisons in sixteen ounces of soda, no ice please.
    2. Young's Double Chocolate Stout, one only except in case of emergency.
    3. A nice Merlot or Pinot Grigio.

    3) Stella Artois

    I rotate thru a variety of dark and other flavorful beers. Currently in the middle of a Sam Adams variety pack; my daily beer this evening was a SA Black Lager.
    Might have to move to wine, though, after reading about the medical study showing that drinking wine improves/maintains cognitive function as we age. Cognitive function - that's a good thing, right?

    Right now is the best weather of the year for riding, but the time to ride gets tricky during the week with the earlier sundown and killer sun blindness in the late afternoon. A few beers a week is a year round favorite.

    1. Stone Ruination IPA (as a rare treat)
    2. Ranger IPA is my standby choice.
    3. Stella Artois is always a safe bet.
    4. Beck's or St. Pauli Girl (tie)

    As it gets colder I'll drift more toward Pale Ales like Flying Dog Doggie Style, New Belgium Mighty Arrow or Terrapin Rye. When winter really sets in, the dark beers gain favor.

    Of course, the year round beverages of choice are always my two cups of coffee in the morning and unsweetened tea at lunch, but the winner in volume and frequency will always be ice water.

    I might have a frozen Margarita when it's hot, or wine when at dinner with friends, but mostly I'm a beer drinker! Not light and not dark - somewhere in the middle. What's in my refrigerator right now is Sam Adams Lager, Sam Adams Octoberfest, Smithwicks, Bass Ale, Stella Artois. (from left to right across the shelf!)

    Move the Bass to the very left on the shelf. Then they'll be in alphabetical order. (Sorry. I work in a library.)

    Right now I am sipping a bottle of Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.
    A few cold Dundee sampler bottles chilling.
    Tough night at work and a nice ride set for both Saturday and Sunday.
    Life is good!

    Iced tea is still my drink of choice, whether it's hot or cold out. But among the brewer's art, I do try to keep enough of Bell's Oberon on hand year 'round to negate its status as a seasonal brew. Stella is always good, too, as is Beck's. I find Heineken somewhat skunky, but there are occasions when I enjoy a little of that in a beer. And for visitors who insist on a "light" beer, I try to keep some Corona on hand - nothing lighter than that, though.

    I've always found Heineken to be somewhat skunky as well, but on my recent trip to France, I was able to get it fresh. What a difference. I think by the time we get it here, it's just too darned old.

    At about the 30-mile mark in my ride yesterday, I was almost overcome by a craving for an ice cold vodka-tonic. That usually happens to me about that point in a nice ride. What I need though is to figure out a way to keep the beverage cold and the tonic fizzy - in my water bottle! I'm pretty sure my Camelback insulated water bottles wouldn't do. Any ideas?

    Wait. Hold it. I know the booze would just make me bonk. But man, it sure does sound good sometimes...

    A slightly over chilled pinot, or an oak laden cabernet will do for me.

    I don't drink too often- No time or money nowadays but

    Spitfire Beer
    Weak Belgian Lager at around 3%
    Any Good grade of French Wine but favourite is "Fitou" closely followed by "Ventoux" or "Cote Du Rhone."
    And a Cognac from a good Distillery but have found that it has to be 25 years old at least.

    France is only a few hours away from home and when the to the Euro is right- we go on a "Booze Cruise" to stock the cellar. Only to a "Cellar" in Calais but the shop I go to there will sell me 100 bottles of quaffable wine and champagne at a price that is almost as cheap as bottled water over here. And in the Supermarkets- The English Spitfire beer is about half price.

    And a word of warning- the local nickname for Stella is Wife Beater. Apparantly a well earned name.

    Well, my season is just getting underway as I'm racing CX. I mostly drink beer; I like Fat Tire, Guiness, Sierra Nevada and Redhook among many others.
    From what I understand about CX racing in my first season - beer is the preferred recovery drink.

    Good luck in your races this season!

    I start and end my day with decaf coffee; strong, with milk. And I also like lemonade, over ice.

    Well, for the 3 weeks each 6 that I am at work in the caribbean (tough gig), I drink watu' Kubuli. Its a local lager.
    When I'm home for the three, Ofallon Gold, a local microbrew. Or possibly a glass of 14 hands Cab... but mostly ice water with meals.

    Coffee for me. I haven't had an alcoholic beverage of any kind for 22 years, 5 months and 23 days. And I don't particularly care for fancy boy coffee either. I was recently given a Starbuck's gift card for my birthday. Anybody want to buy it?








    I really am becoming a retro grouch.

    I'm a home brewer, so take a guess. Right now I have a smoked porter, a ginger wheat, and an IPA in the kegerator.
    I also have about 5 different kinds of tequila. Clase Azul is my favorite with just a little lime rubbed on the rim of the glass
