|I posted a topic regarding diet to see exactly how bad my diet was in comparison to everyone else, and what popped up but a long discussion about beer. Sounds like a nice topic, and a decent beverage of choice among us bike hounds. Tell me, what is your favorite beer(s)?
The reason that I ask is this, a local brewery here in KC is a HUGE sponsor of cycling, especially MTB. 75th Street Brewery is a big sponsor and they typically bring out New Belguim (Fat Tire), and or Guinness... then we have Boulevard who have a variety of brews.
Do you show any loyalty to such vendors for their sponsorship and does that have anything to do with your choice of tasty suds?
Personally, I prefer the following:
Schlaffley's Oatmeal Stout
Boulevard TenPenny Ale

|Been brewing my own for about a decade now. Usually done during (GASP) football games.
I do keep Yuengling and Heiny in the fridge when I want something light.
Typically get whatever I never heard of at the pubs.

|I buy lots of New Belgium beer. Probably my fave brewer if I had to pick one. I also like Sierra Nevada pale ale, Sam Smith Oatmeal stout, Sam Adams light...whatver strikes my fancy at the time. Sponsorship of cycling is good, but it has to taste good for me to buy it.|

|are my favorite. It needs to be "fresh" though and that's sometimes an issue here in Memphis. Negra Modelo is a great beer. Other imports--Sammy Smith or one of the hefeweizens are favorites (how does SS keep it fresh in clear bottles???).
In Atlanta, the local breweries made some good stuff (Sweetwater and Dogwood especially) but my favorite of all time would probably be from 5 Seasons--a brewpub. These guys know beer and produce some of the best in the states.
One of my favorite topics if you can't tell...

|I have a long list of things I like to drink, mostly whatever's dark and on sale...
Shiner Bock is good. Gotta be if Lance likes it.
Karl Strauss (local to San Diego)
Pete's Summer Brew (and pretty much all of his beers)
Sam Adams Summer Ale (ditto)
Sierra Nevada (try their Octoberfest!)
Pacifico (for something yellow and Mexican)
There are others, but my headache from last night's mtn ride is making it hard to think.

|I forgot one of the better local breweries here in the North County: Stone Brewing Co.
|I like Fat Tire, and appreciate their support of cycling, but...||godot|

|Much prefer their local competition, Odell's 90 Shilling, to Fat Tire.|

|It's a heavy but smooth, filling-but-give-me-more German Weisse beer. I find it pretty common around the Chicago area, but not elsewhere.|
|Some local stuff.||KG 361|

|There's a micro brewerey in Harrisburg PA called Troegs that has some tasty ales and dark beers. They also help sponser some local cycling events (their MS 150 jerseys are really nice). I also like Yuengling aand Bass and, of course, Guinness.|

|... I think I had a beer in 2002. Can't remember one this year.
In part, that's because I can't find Ballentine Ale these days.

|I drink IPAs almost exclusively. Typically from the Pacific Northwest:
Big Time Brewing- any IPA by them, Bhagwan's Best, Decade, Matt's Red Eye
Dechutes Quail Springs
Rogue Brutal Bitter has got to be one of the best hoppy ales on the planet
But also will go for some of the California offerings-
Sierra Nevada Celebration

|The Paulaner Salvator Dopplebock almost made my list. Celebrator and St. Martin are two of my other favorite dopples. I still haven't acquired a taste for Rauchbier. I always feel like someone spilled a bottle of liquid smoke in my beer.|

Consume one of the above the night before a ride and you'll be okay, two or more and your legs will seize up and your bladder will feel like a basket-ball when you sit on the bike!
