    MOVED: What is the best beer for riding fixed?

    While not new to drinking while riding fixed (riding drunk in Chicago is not a crime, btw) I was wondering if there is any consensus on what is the optimal alchoholic beverage for use with fixed gear bikes. Is there a difference between beer that goes well with singlespeed as opposed to fixie? What is you favorite accompanyment to pie? What beer fits best in your messenger bag? I tend to prefer English-style ales, but often end up running a lot of PBR.

    Heh, I found "Arrogant Bastard" while out in Seattle with a co-worker. We wanted to bring back a case to give to our boss, but they didn't have bottles. Maybe it was for the best

    Let me just say that if I see any fixie rider drinking Miller Lite or Bud Lite I will chase them down and toss a used rear derailleur into their front spokes.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    Jameson's Redbreast whiskey makes me go faster, and is lighter than beer.

    Cans are better than bottles, preferably PBR cans. You can crush them for more space after you chug them.

    Seconded on the cider - Dark and Dry Woodchuck preferably.

    Ira, next time you brew, you have to invite us over!

    PBR is the standard beer of choice. Pitchers rarely hit $6 in these parts.

    Huber is wretched. High Life is okay. Berghoff blows, but if you're poor and depressed, you can't go wrong with a $5 sixer of their pale ale.

    A REAL fixie rider (purist) would drink lab-grade ethanol, no? None of that unnecessary stuff mixed in.

    As for me, I'll take PBR over any other mass-produced beer anyday. PBR also seems to be big in the bike scene. If I'm going to drink anything decent, count me in for a stout or ale. A nice heavy stout gives me the carbs (and an intoxicated sense of power) I need for serious riding.

    Though Lucky Lager is excellent (sadly, I can't find it ANYWHERE in LA. Is it still brewed?), recently I've been a major fan of the following beers:

    Double Bastard (once a year, they pour out the bottom of the fermenting barrels for arrogant bastard. 20 proof of hoppy ale goodness!)

    Reverend Ale - another 10%-er bottle of magic.

    Rogue's Shakespeare Stout - It's supposedly the stout world champion. It tastes like chocolate!

    Other than beer? Cutty Sark is the bomb for a cold night.

    I'm a strongbow dry cider person myself. I need to try my hand at homebrewing again. the last experiment was a complete failure.

    Ira, whats your process?

    nice to have some more ciderpunx in here. last time this topic came up I got slammed by all the anti-cider beer people.
