Beers Inspired By CyclistMasonJ

I was wondering if there are any beers that are actually inspired by cyclist. I know there is fat tire ale and I also know Christian Van De Velde and friends have a home brew called Spider Bite Ale after an incident a couple of seasons ago between a spider and Vand De Velde.

Fat Tire Ale- New Belgium Brewery, Fort Collins, CO
Fat Tire.....mmmmmmm!_rt_

did you know that it can not be "imported" to many southern states (e.g., NC & GA). something having to do with the liquor taxes in those states.

every time i go to CO i bring back a 12 pack.....currently have 4 left in my fridge.

Picked up some Dog Bite this summer but don't know who brews it, I'll check it out. The label has a dog clamped to the leg of a bike rider.
Funny. DO they have a website?MasonJ

Cottonwood Endo Pale AleKenS

It's "over the top."

An excellent and very hoppy beer, originally made by Cottonwood Brewery.
The brewer moved to Carolina Beer Compary, Mooresville, NC (just N. of Charlotte).
The beer has limited distribution in the Southeast, see for details.

My wife doesn't understand why any decent cyclist would want to stop at pub in the middle of a ride for a beer. Can someone please help her understand!!! My reasoning (what better time for a tall cold reward than during a ride) doesn't suite her well enough, apparently.

There are many beers with bikes on their labels. That might be a clue as to their "inspiration".
