    But after just finishing a private tour (my riding buddy is good friends with one of the owners), I just have to say Stone Brewery rules. Samplings included: Levitation Ale (very nice flavor w/ low alcohol content - the drink all day beer!), Stone Pale Ale - good all-rounder, Smoked Porter Ale - very flavorful cocktail hour beer, IPA - just a plain good kick a SS beer, Arogant Basstard - just doesn't get any better unless it's a Smoked IPA (3/4 IPA with 1/4 Smoked Porter - wow, what a great combo).

    Topped off the tour with a purchase of a Smoked Porter Ale Growler 2 liters of bliss and refillable for $7 bucks!

    I must say, I never got the bikes-n-beer thing, and usually dismissed it as some sort of lame-o male bonding thing- I generally ride alone and have a Coke or Gatorade while underway, sometimes even the runoff from cooked noodles mixed with Tang. (Which, by the way, is a marvelous energy drink if you can get over the revolting texture and flavor of it.)
    Anyhow, I am in Germany right now and realized what a good thing beer is while riding, as long as your stomach is full enough that you don't feel the effects while riding.
    So- to the point. I generally drink a Franziskaner Hefeweizen Kristall while underway, or after I get back, sometimes a Franziskaner Hefe Dunkel.

    ... and if we just ... Dogfish Head World Wide Stout

    It's all downhill from there.

    A good Hefeweizen is a top choice of mine too. I always enjoy trips to Gemany and Hefeweizens with lunch. Stone Brewery also has a distribution side and distributes a fine Hefeweizen by Paulaner.

    brewery tour...

    I went yesterday and although they were open and sampling, no tours were going on. I scored some schwag (ABA workshirt and a couple sets of pint glasses) and some Symposium Ale.

    Although their beer is tops, the brewery left a lot to be desired. But, who gives a sheeyat when the beer is that good!

    Agreed. Not a whole lot impressive with a bunch of stainless steel vats. The explanation of what they do to make the beer was good, though. There's also a lot more behind the main room you see from the tasting area.

    Mark your calendars - on June 14 they will release a special edition of their Imperial Russian Stout - mmm, mmm good!

    Maybe we just need a sticky thread to yak about Stone!

    I can't wait. I think it's been a year since I had one, but oh, what a beer! Well, I'm done with my coffee so it's time to go ride. Later on.

    Some of my favorites:
    Stella Artois
    Aventinus - truly the nectar of the gods!
    Hoegaarden
    Guinness
    Yeungling

    I'm sure there are a bazillion other excellent beers I have yet to get my paws on.

    Just started drinking Hoegaarden this week (and right now). Very good stuff. My favorite is Anchor Porter of SF. Also recommend Spaten Optimator, a dark brew. Friends who don't like Anchor Porter like the Optimator, which surprised me. Paulaner and Franziskaner Weiß beers are excellent too.

    There are way too many beers to name a favorite.

    My go to beer is Guinness.

    That's my version of miller lite.

    For a treat I will get founders breakfast stout, youngs chocolate stout, or rogue chocolate stout.

    Red Oak brewed in Whitsett, NC. Its an old style lager with a smooth and filling taste. Its brewed with no preservatives but they have been shipping it throughout NC. If you are ever in the area be sure to grab a Red Oak or one of the other beers they brew. Ive been to the brew weekly brew tour they offer more than a few times and talked with most of the brewers and the brewmaster all really cool people with a genuine passion for brewing great beer!

    fat tire

    I love fat tire and i live in CT my biggest complaint is you can't buy it in the area, NE brewers are "protected" as the states dont import most of the west coast beer
