    I have recently moved from henry Westons Cider to a new product here at Singletrack for my midride “sports drink”. I guess that come with moving from the south to the north.

    I have been sneaking this into the Singletrack photographs recently… and no one seems to have notice that we now sell beer here. We have also been product testing too…. It’s a tough job.

    Out in the Minneapolis, where the Surly Bikes guys live, beer freezes solid before the fourth swig, but it was -25c when I was there.

    Can or bottles. Burpy beer or flat beer?

    Come on then… what is the best midride beer? What makes for a great trail beer?

    Quick link to my new trail beer…. other beers are available. Riding and drinking is dumb and dangerous, and probably not even cool. Other blah blah small print.

    I don’t really think beer and bikes mix, and am a bit baffled by the way so much American bike stuff marketing pivots around beer being involved.

    Trail beer! Is this actually a thing? Do people actually take beer with them on a ride?

    Stopping at a pub on a nice sunny day fair enough, bit I’d never take it with me!!

    Depends what’s on draught at the pub.

    I note the STW beer is sold in cans, is that because the stupid headset spacer/bottle opener doesn’t work very well…

    Can or bottles.

    Well, to go by what’s on sale here, stupid little expensive cans for maximum beardybikewanker points.

    Three quid for a little can of hipster fuel, sheesh.

    +1 mid ride pub stop (for an HPA)

    A mid ride pub stop in the summer is one of life’s simple pleasures, in winter it involves getting too hot or cold and a cold ride home.

    beer mid-ride is grim, makes you not want to ride. I’d also say the same for café stop in the middle of a road ride as well FWIW because it’s the stopping then starting again.

    If your ride doesn’t finish at a pub you need to work on your map skills : )

    Pricing looks a bit OTT. Best of luck.

    £18 for 6, you’re taking the piss right?

    Pretty much every shop has 3 for a fiver or 4 for £6. Lidl and Aldi are about £1.50 a can….

    Bit weak for a Black IPA

    Needs to be dark and come with a head and be poured from a hand pump

    I like something “craft” from a small brewery. This is possibly the most singletrack beer product. Can we have a growler cage and growler in the STW shop?

    Luckily there are establishments that cater for those that like beer.

    Anyway everyone knows a real singlespeeder doesn’t need a bottle opener.

    They either use their eye socket, or bite the neck off the bottle…

    I’m up for supporting your local forum for dickheads by purchasing some stuff, but when 12 small cans with premier discount is £3.50 each…?!

    Remember having 4-5 pints of Shredder from Magic Rock on their bike day afew years ago and ending up in a bush with a buckled wheel en route home, took it steadier ever since and only have 1-2 post ride if I’m bimbling home afterwards on the pushiron. Brewdog/Wainright/Farmers blonde are my picks at the moment.
