    beer after long ride?

    At the end of the HHH they have lots of food booths. I had found the smoothie booth for several years but then a couple of years ago I couldn't find it. I did find a beer booth selling big glasses of Shiner Bock, maybe 20 oz. or more. I thought "hey, after all it's carbs". Last year I found the booth again. A big cold beer's pretty good after a long ride, maybe not as good as a big smoothie, but pretty good still. I was sitting there enjoying my beer and noticing that there was a nice cool breeze, and some nice grass under some big shade trees. I was really tempted to get another beer and sit down against that tree for awhile, but my family was waiting for me at home so I had to go.

    So, who likes a big smoothie after a long ride and who likes a big beer after a long ride?

    I assume you're referring to the Hotter than Hell Hundred. There's another HHH in SW Wisconsin, the Horribly Hilly Hundreds. At the end of that ride is a feast and as much Leinenkugels as you want. Oh and I want, after that ride...100 or 200k options. It's a week from tomorrow. I won't be there. Its 1000 spots fill up in <30min every year. But it's a good challenging ride so the cool brews at the end are well deserved.

    I like beer in the middle of long rides. Not 20oz, though. There's a place down in Portland that has Tecate on tap and they're one of the few bars these days that has 9oz glasses as well as pints. It's typically only about a 40 or 50 mile ride I'm in the middle of when I hit that up, however.

    Below average, I'm afraid.

    BA gives that Hefeweizen a B-, though. It might be worth a try.

    Very good is pushing it. Perhaps a qualifier would help this sentence:

    Shiner's a very good beer sonny boy, compared to Pearl, that is.

    IPA please, unless I'm trying to count calories, in which case I'll take a Heineken light.

    I like chocolate milk, or tea if it's winter. I know, lame, but I'm not old enough to drink beer legally, and I'd rather not get arrested/kicked out of univerity.

    Beer is great after exercise as long as I hydrate first, otherwise, I get a headache pretty quickly.


    Also, I drink the super-cheap beer. As long as it's cold enough, you can't taste it.

    Unless dehydration is a problem, Harpoon IPA. Or their Leviathan Imperial Red. Or any other IPA. Atlantic Brewing Company's Special Old Bitter (SOB). Yeah, Dogfish Head has some good ones. If re-hydration is the goal, it used to be something lighter like cold Rolling Rock, great on a hot humid summer day, haven't had any in ages though. Dang, there are so many good specialty beers. Hard to pick a favorite. Gotta' wait till I get home though if there's any driving still left to do.

    I bought a couple half-cases of Rock when they shut down the Latrobe brewery. It lasted about a month. New Jersey Rolling Rock isn't quite the same. Kinda close, but it's over carbonated like all other Anheuser-Busch products. I quit drinking it for quite a while, and try one now and then, but it ain't the same and my taste buds have not forgot the old stuff yet. Bud said they shut down latrobe because it was inefficient, but what the hell does inefficiency have to do with beer. I wonder how much they sell now? No one I knew that liked RR drinks it now.

    Bytes are cheap. Give us the list. If you don't share an alternative, how will we ever know the difference?

    Negra Modelo - Not bad, but not my first choice.
    Bohemia - Same.
    Stella Artois - overrated.
    Dogfish Head - The few I've had were too hoppy for my tastes.
    Session - Agreed, I've enjoyed both styles I've tried.
    Red Stripe - I disagree.
