    Bikes & Breweries?

    Does there exist a vacation which includes biking all day with a destination of a brewery at night (close to the trail)? We used to be able to do it in NE Ohio with the Thirsty Dog near Medina but it closed down and since then I haven't really found anything. Ideas?

    In Durango you can take your pick of rides from town and then again take your pick of brewery's as soon as you are done.

    Excellent thank you for the reply. I'll hit it up when I go out there. I'll also update this thread with what I find if anyone else is interested.

    There are 2 breweries I have been to in Moab. 1 (maybe 2) in Fruita. 3 breweries in Grand Junction. Trails out the yang yang.

    Grand Junction - My favorite two are 1) Kannah Brewery and 2) Rockslide Brewery
    Fruita - Suds Brothers.
    Moab - Moab Brewery.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Bend, Oregon. We have 10 breweries within riding distance of the trails and a few more a little further out. We even have the beer bus and cyclepub to take you around to all the breweries if you are too tired out from riding too much.
    Moving to Bend? Let me help.

    Just wanted to throw this in here that I reached out to a few bike shops in areas where I'd like to visit and THICK Bikes Thick Bikes and Tree Fort Bikes Tree Fort Bikes - Online Bicycle Parts and Accessories, Bicycle Tools and Maintenance got right back to me with seemingly well planned trips to Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor. Those will be my first two stops. If anyone has advice/favorite spots let me know.

    I think I am going to head to Asheville after that.

    Helena is doing something similar on August 16. To celebrate Helena's 150th anniversary, the Montana Brewers Association's annual festival is being held in Helena's Centennial Park. We'll be holding events at the Vigilante Bike Park across the street, and Bike Helena will be running shuttles all day that weekend.

    If anyone is in Montana, it'll be a great opportunity to try a lot of regional beers in one place and get in a lot of riding.

    Kingdom trails and Stowe vermont. Although not on the trails Hillfarmstead not a far drive away. In stowe the Traps brewery Is right on the trail. Plus the great pubs in Waterbury, 5 min pedal from the Famed Rastaman/ burning spear trails of Waterbury. The Alchemist new brewery will be open sometime soon. If you don't know about hillfarmstead, heady Topper, and Lawson's finest liquids I'm talking about some if the Worlds best brews.

    REPORT: Went to Pittsburgh Monday night. It was awesome. We rode bikes all over the city then bar hopped down Carson Street and had plenty of good beer. Then I fell in love with the Over the Bar Bicycle Cafe.

    The next day we found some fun Singletracks in Fricke Park down the road.

    Good trip.
