    Compared to what? Based on the few reviews I've read, it sounds like pretty good beer, though not exceptional.

    The bike is exceptional. Very nice design and execution. I'd be willing to lighten his load by a pound or two.

    What beer do you consider good? I am very picky about my beer- I don't drink often so I can afford to be. I love traveling in the UK and stopping in for a pint of local stout on tap, pull is best.

    Fair enough. HUB beer is probably comparable to the stuff we get from our local brewpub, but they are the only one I know of in this county. I feel lucky to live within a few miles of Franklin's. Most of the liquor stores around here don't even sell good bottled beer.

    How long did it take you to check out the other ~100 brewer's products?

    A bike that hauls beer. Man, the stuff could be skunk water for all that. Great idea!!

    We need to start calling it a "Party Bike." Referring to it as a 'beer bike' is just too sublime for this baby.

    How good does it have to be? Beer=good. Therefore, good=beer.

    I believe in drinking good beer, which not all beer is.
    If I'm going to drink a bunch of something, might as well taste good.
    I'm not someone who will drink cheap, nasty beer just to get drunk; I want to have a good time, and drinking gross beer isn't in that equation.

    They can't tell about the bong that cools the smoke by running a tube through the ice. Shhh! Top secret!

    Good, more for the rest of us.

    Can I get you a glass of tap water with ice and perhaps a slice of lemon?

    Why would I want a glass of water?
    I never said I didn't drink beer.
    If anything, beer is for wimps; I'll take some actual hard liquor, please.
    You're not a badass just because you drink cheap, horrible beer.

    If you don't want the beer or the water, I have nothing else to offer you except the door.

    I've never known a biker who turned down water.
