I have to preface this post by saying that i'm not much of a beer drinker. Sure, I enjoy a good microbrew as much as the next guy or gal and i'm not opposed to a pint or two with a friend at the pub, but drinking beer isn't something i do regularly.
Now for the question. What's the connection between bikes and beer? I recently viewed a thread on a mountainbike website that had over 100 replys to it and what was this burning topic that so many replied to? "What's you're favorite beer?"
Of course, I've noticed this bike/beer thing before. My favorite bike mag, Dirtrag magazine, has a regular column about beer.
It seems to me that cycling is probably one of the least alcohol-friendly activities. What with the balance required and all. Is this just a MTB thing? Is the postride brewfest just a way to deaden the pain of bouncing off rocks all day? Do roadies do it? Is it just a image thing? and why don't beer makers wake up and start advertising in bike magazines?
