    It would be cool to see all the different labels of beers that use a biking / bicycle theme in your neck of the woods. In BC there at least 5 different beers locally that use bikes on the label. Show some of the ones in your area?

    Very cool. I did a "fat tire" bike tour in Paris and in Barcelona, and both were awesome ways to see the cities. Also, both tours had bottles of Fat Tire in their offices, but made it very clear (at the behest of the brewery) to point out that they were in no way affiliated with the beer.

    You aren't missing much, Boulder beer is pretty average.

    Lots of stuff from New Belgium is bike related (including basically their entire brewery). Also Hopworks in Portland, their Bikebar is great.
