    Cool. And a really good beer as well.
    I had an old bike like that. One flick of the lever when I was learning how to use my backhoe, and oops- spaghetti frame.

    Way cool. They make me smile. And I don't even drink beer. They really seem to capture the pure and simple pleasure of just rolling two wheels over ground.

    Just ride.

    I saw one for the first time on during the local news tonigh. I figured it was a local/regional campaign but it seems to have a pretty broad scope! Great ad, though.

    I read in a bike magazine that if you work for the company for a year, you get a cruiser like that as part of your bonus. The brewery workers also decided a few years back to donate part of their bonuses to convert the factory to wind power, seems like a pretty cool company.

    Thanks for the link. Those commercails are simply great. watching them reminds me of why I like riding bikes, and why I should get out the cruiser more often. Its all about joy. Pure unadaulterated joy. I only wish I could get Fat Tire here!

    Not true,
    you can get Fat Tire(only the bombers) at almost any desent liquor store now. I know Kings Liquor in Santa Monica has it. This happened within the last month. They even serve the bombers at bars now.
    Make me kinda sad..... I went to school in Ft. Collins and used to go to the old brewery to get smart kegs and whatnot.... its not as fresh and good tasting..

    While not the best beers I've ever tasted (better than anything the big brewers put out however) New Belgium is not in any way connected to Budweiser. I know, I've been to their brewery twice.

    really? gosh, that's a HUGE surprise to hear that New Belgium is NOT REALLY Budweiser.

    of course, when they taste the same, what is the difference. Miller, Bud, Lite, New Belgium, Piels, Coors, Weidemann's, Rainier, Kokanee, Labatt's Blue... all shyte beer.

    Odd company to put New Belgium in there gonzo...are you saying ALL the NB beers taste like crap or just Fat Tire? FT to me is kind of ordinary, but the 1551 or whatever is really good(at least to my tastebuds). Besides, I find it hard to fault a company that's as focused on being Green as they are. That makes up for a ton in my mind.

    Yeah, FT is drinkable, I couldn't decide what keg to get for my home tap and I wanted to it have a bicycle theme. It was either going to be Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Fat Tire. I went with the Fat Tire but after looking at the product listing on the web site I'm kind of wishing I went with the 1551. I'm not sure if it comes in a keg around here though. Now Guinness on tap would be sweet, but you need some special equaptment and some kind of gas mixer to do it right. To complitcated for me right now.

    If you're interested.. this is what you need for some home Guinness.

    What I was really looking for was for something from SacBrewing, but the local BevMo didn't have any. I wonder if I wandered up to SacBrew if I could pick something up.

    If it hadn't been for Weidemann's, I'd have had to go through college sober. It may be crap, but it knows it's crap, and is priced accordingly. Gotta respect that.
