    I've been stuck at home thanks to some car problems all weekend and as usual I'm thinking about beer. So how about some automotive themed beers to get my mind off of my automotive troubles just for kicks?

    I'll start things off with Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye, Racer 5 & Racer X.

    Plus a bonus, Walgreen's Big Flats, since it makes me think of flat tires.

    Anything from Motor City Brewing Works. They even make a strong ale series, I believe it's 10w30, 10w40, and 10w60.
    Also, a classic is Old Engine Oil from Harvieston.

    Shock Top Lemon Shandy.

    (Two automotive themes - shocks and lemons. 3 if you count "Top", as in convertible.)

    Honestly, how can such a knowledgable dude like you, also have such a fine-tuned wit? You owe me a beer, for the one I just spewed all over my PC.

    Yep, I stand corrected, I guess I should have just not read the thread and posted a beer that has already been mentioned...
