Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Great. A list of beers with no *reason* for liking / trying them.

List + reasons:
  • Not available in stores -- Downtown Brew's IPA in San Luis Obisop, CA. It's like a garden full of hops exploded in your mouth.
  • Steelhead IPA (Mad River Brewing) -- because it's almost at good as Downtown Brew but has significantly higher ABV (8.6%).
  • Oaked Arrogant B@st@rd (Stone Brewing) -- if you find yourself in So Cal, get it from the brewery on tap. It finishes like you just ate a beer filled cherry. Two pints on a Sunday morning is a religious experience.
  • Rogue Chocolate Stout (Rogue Brewing) -- because it's like stout and hot chocolate had a love child.
  • Fat Tire (New Belgium Brewing) -- because you can complete the second 35 miles after 3 pints, no questions asked, or after 8 pints, 4 miles along the boardwalk in Newport Beach still firmly believing that you're completely capable of riding a bicycle. Then wake up the next day, refreshed, and ride 35 miles back home.

I just finished my third Nibmus Red Ale, and they're not bad. This following a couple pints of Kona Pipeline Porter for happy hour. And it's still early. Beer is my co-pilot.

Sure. Reasons. That will be interesting.


I hadn't had "x" beer before. I purchased it. Now I'm drinking it. I (+/-) liked it. For (+/-) reasons.


More seriously, this Fort is quite good, but not exactly what I would consider beer. It's much more like a heavy fruit wine.

have you guys ever heard of a brewery out of Louisiana called Abita? Check out Turbodog, Restoration Ale, or Amber Ale. My 3 favorites as of late. There are only two stores up here (MI) that carry it around me, and even that, is impressive.

I went to the local hippy bar last night, they have a bunch of their own microbrews they make onsite. I had their brown ale, which was pretty basic but real good, and then I think it was called like coffee stout(I can't really remember, my friend was buying them for me because his band was playing and he only had to pay a dollar) that was incredible. My two favorite drinks in one.

Surprisingly, Pabst is the Bianchi Pista of beers. Mediocre but hangs with the big boys.

pbr is really only good if I want to get drunk, not just to have a beer. That being said, i've grown to like the taste.

I actually like the taste after mowing the lawn or going for a long ride. Seems like the watery beers work well when what your body needs is water but what you want is beer.
