4th of July...what Beer are you enjoying today?

After my ride this morning on my Raleigh Supercourse (keeping it C & V), I am now enjoying a Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter (my personal favorite IPA). What are you enjoying today? (After messing with your bike).

Natty Boh, because I am feeling nostalgic for Maryland and I happened to buy a case a few weeks ago, also because it is all I currently have around. Maybe next week I will go buy some good stuff

Lafayette day: I shared a few bottles of french white wine to celebrate the start of the Tour de France, and had Buds and hotdogs for dinner to celebrate my continuing transatlantic affiliation with the revolutionary republican movement in the age of enlightenment.

Happy birthday, America!

Just opened a Yuengling. I was going to have a Guinness Stout, but being Independence Day, I thought an American beer was more appropriate.

Blue Moon Belgian style white wheat... A couple in fact. Pedaled around later on a not yet CV bike, 2014 Rush.

But hey, it had a yesterday wrapped Cinelli double, Crit bars and stem. In fact most of the parts are CV already. Frame just has to age up as well

Wait, this thread was about beer...

New Belgium Rampant. Good, but not my favorite. Just the best of what was available in the store I ran into yesterday after the ride.

My wife bought two beers. One is a Sam Adams summer ale, wheat with grains of paradise. The other is called porch rocker. The first one is a sweet wheat beer and tastes like... uh... a sweet wheat beer. The other tastes like some kind of canned fruit with stale beer added. I had one of each. I'm not enjoying any beer today.

Eff wheat beer! Sam Adams makes some fine beers. They also make this.

No doubt Sam was a great patriot and would be proud to see his name on the outside of the bottle. As for what's inside, well... let's leave it there, shall we?

Another Sierra Nevada drinker here...their regular pale ale today.

We should all celebrate that we have so many decent american beers to drink on this 4th of July. During most of my youth and early manhood 99% of american beers were swill.

Felt like an IPA tonight and Anchor IPA is what I've currently got in the fridge.

I may live in NY now, but my palette still seems to favor stuff from back home on the west coast. I'm learning to love some local stuff too, like Southern Tier IPA.

Rudi, I totally agree with you. My wife also got me some of that Porch Rocker...I ended up saving it for my dad...as he doesn't like IPA, and I didn't like it at all.

Have a good and safe night!!!
