Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

top 100 lowest calorie beers:

I mostly drink light stuff, 100 calories per beer or less, amstel light, coors light, miller light, corona light,e tc.

But I do enjoy a dark full bodied ale every now and again....

Fred Beer, of course. Big fat head full of foam, label has big white rim symbolizing knee high white socks, the cap is white symbolizing white bar tape, it is really expensive but isn't any better than regular beer but your friends will think you are really cool and each bottle comes with valve caps and a valve stem nut in the bottom, just like a worm in Tequila but for Fredsters. Mmmm, Fred Beer.

root beer float... GTFO!!!!!!!!11

we're trying to have a serious discussion here.

wheat beer (karl strauss heff), guinness or a new castle... However when I drink guinness or new castle it's always 2 at a time, so I guess it depends on where the ride ends and how I'm getting home.

Bass. Bass is the answer to everything. Ok, maybe not, but it's damn good and avaliable pretty much everywhere around me.

There was this lovely beer I had in Italy once, had a slightly cinamon taste to it, lovely and light but I haven't been able to find it since .

A number of years ago I would have answered Dortmunder Union. However, I haven't seen it here in Fla for some time.

Note: DU does not equal DAB. DAB is OK but not real special. For stuff that's reasonably available I've become increasingly fond of Leffe.

This, though, is a valid contender...

Props on suggesting the Delirium Tremens. The Delirium Nocturnum is also quite tasty.

I think the answer to this question depends on the season. Cold weather riding needs a meatier beer, say a nice Dogfish Head Palo Santo Maron or Kate the Great RIS (living in Southern Maine has some benefits). For warmer weather, a nice wheat beer (I'm partial to Franziskaner Hefe) or Belgian White (Allagash) is perfect. Of course, there's never a bad time for a great Trappist ale. A Westy 12 is a great way to finish a ride... :-)

1) Boont Ale
2) Redtail Ale
3) Sierra Nevada (this is the gold standard of beer)

These 3 beers are perfect for each and every occasion. Doesnt matter time of day or time of year.
Drink 2 before each ride, 1 during and 3 after.
