What's your favorite post-ride beverage...(Beer Thread)

Now I'm all about staying healthy... But I sure do enjoy an ice cold IPA afterwards...or 2 or 3...

Here's my favorites,

Dogfish Head 90 IPA.. if I can't find that,
Dogfish Head 60 IPA.. if I can't find that,
Blue Moon...

What's in your fridge?

I've been partial to Bud Lite with Lime as of late. Then consider I don't ride anymore it doesn't matter and I shouldn't drink alcohol anyway.

Just about anything that New Belgium Brewery produces...and any local micro brew I can get my hands on. My local pub (well semi local ) brews a killer oatmeal creme stout that can be brought home in a growler. My perennial favorites from NB are 1554 and Fat Tire ale.

Good old Budwieser, Miller, PBR, Schlitz, or a Shaffer. No designer "add fruit" beer for me.

You don’t ride anymore at all or is this temporary break from riding?

Medications that I have to take daily will not mix with alcohol. So my favorite drink after a ride is 4 to 6 scoops chocolate ice cream, with 1 cup of milk and 6 tablespoons of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, mixed in my blender.

Did I mention that I like chocolate?

Oh yeah, I really like Fat Tire too! I tried a oatmeal beer last week. I don't remember the name though....

Hey that's what's in your fridge! Many people of faith choose not to drink.

To be more specific, I'm Lutheran.. I may have a beer or two but that's about it.

After a long, hot ride: Dale's Pale Ale.
With food: Lefthand Sawtooth Ale. (Like Fat Tire, but crisper flavor).
All by it's self: Guinness. (The good stuff in the can with the nitrogen widget, not the bottled variant).

I'm Southern Baptist. John 3:16. Not too long ago I had a real narcotics addiction. Been to rehab 6 times in the last 10 years, yesterday I celebrated 1 year clean & sober. Now if I could just get rid of this cigarette addiction I'd be all set.

This atheist likes a Sam Adams or Stella after riding. On tour last month we stayed in some places that could be considers slums. They didn't have beer but we could get Bud and Coors.

Not a big ale fan, but I have a few I can choke down. I understand why they're so common w/ the microbrewers though but am always surprised at their popularity. I'm a good pilsner guy, either the real Czech ones, some similar German and Belgium lager types, and look for any new microbrew pilsner I can find.

$2 pound-cans, at the tavern, or $5 pints of microbrews, at the brewpub [2 here]

[5L box of Rhine wine in the fridge, includes a free winter Saddle Cover, when MT]

Pilsner in Prague , Belgian in Kortrijk, Bavarian in Munich, Guiness in Galway.

The tears of the poor bastitches whose souls I crushed sustains me! So you know I am malnourished.

Guiness, Shock Top, Sam Adams. I don't really do a post ride drink per se, but that is what I have in the ice box.

They're brewing some good stuff. I'm partial to the porter, and the Spring seasonal ("Spring Hop").

I homebrew, and my last batch of hefeweizen turned out pretty tasty. Recently I've been going for that and my dry stout.

I'll take an Anchor Steam if I can't get a dark stout or porter, but I much prefer a nice dark stout like Guinness, or even better a porter like Flying Dog's Gonzo Imperial Porter (my newest personal favorite and HIGHLY recommended to dark beer drinkers). A late-harvest Zinfandel will also do however.

One of my many favorites is Kilt Lifter, produced by the Pike Brewery in Seattle. It's a Scotch style ruby ale.
