We all need to drink beer!

Just as the thread says, i feel that everyone who rides needs to drink beer. It makes you able to talk to others about cycle safety, and to prech the benefits of the sport to non riders with a comfortable shroud!! Even MERTON can sound reasonable when you have had a few(Just playin, buddy)!!!!!

Also causes families to break up, lose your good job and get a bad low paying one, health problems, maybe even get killed due to impairment or running ones mouth too much. Yep youll have lots of friends until you lose your good paying job then they are gone. The list goes on and on. Believe me I know.

I was hoping to steer this one to the good side of beer, the one for people with control, where it is a lot of fun!

Nothing like a cold beer or two after a long, hard ride.

I usually quit drinking for a month or so over the winter to help keep my weight down and prove to myself that I can control my drinking though.

Maybe we don't all need to drink beer, but I know I sure like it. And hey, it's Friday!

I used to think beer was nasty too until someone handed me a Guinness in college and I realised what people were trying to give me before was not beer.

The latest craze is PBR's popularity. Nothing against PBR, but when you have all kinds of great tasting brews available, why go for yellow beer-flavored water?

Beer is beer. It's all good.

Some are better than others though, but you usually pay out the nose for the extra quality.

Dr Pepper, isnt that a gateway drink. Most beer drinkers started their habit by just one soft drink.

I wonder if there has ever been a study done on beer and it's relationship to pregnancy? IOW, I wonder how many of us reading this forum are here because of beer. YOu know, momma gets a little liquored up and instead of sliding into third for a triple, daddy hits a home run!

I'll second that, sort of. I much prefer Pepsi over anything with alcohol.

Price!
Come on you get 12 of them for 5 friggin bucks. It's the last true american pilsner

In all seriousness I like it. And I am not fond of any rice beer. Unfortunatlly I am gonna have to quit for awhile (at least cut back ) to focus more on training for the road. I'm trying to get down to 175lbs. Plus it seems more like a Fall/Winter and Cyclocross beverage
