    Beer does taste its best right after a great day on the mountain, river or even golf course. Last week, for the first time in my life, I had a beer right after surfing. Wow!

    That's another reason I don't get the bitter beer craze ("I only drink IBU 60 or above..."). I don't like beer that makes me thirsty as I am drinking it.

    Nothing like a two-beer post-ride buzz... and it tastes good too. ;)

    In absence of beer... I’ve consumed serious gallonage of chocolate milk and root beer while bikepacking.

    Best recovery drink ever! People often ask me what I drink after a ride and I tell them usually just a beer. Then they ask what about a big ride and I respond with two beers!

    I don't care fore the over-hopped ales either. Lower alcohol content post ride is good for me as well. 4.2-4.5%. I've been enjoying Czech pilsners this summer which are pretty light by West Coast IPA standards!

    There's a reason the Germans call it Flüssiges Brot! :thumbsup:

    Liquid bread. Probably better than Tailwind. :p

    It's hot enough that I will be enjoying a beer later today when all the honey-do's are done.

    Why does it have to be after a bike ride?! This was last night...after a spin on the crutches. Watching my peeps detail my daughters ‘new to her’ Subaru.;) My oldest took this pic ..he thinks I’m a nut :rolleyes:

    As one of the early adopters who talked @Mikie into trying Tailwind, I get some leeway! :p A long long time ago, @Mikie swore we were all crazy with our liquid food. :cool:

    Yeah, I got to give Steve that. However.... 2 scoops of Naked in a pitcher of 805 and you are well on your way to brew recovery. Prevents hangover’s too! :unsure:
    (I’m pretty confident that Tailwind is thrilled I’m not their spokesman)
