    Default Beerneuring Freezing Saddles Side Bet is Back!

    Do you like to bike? Do you like beer? If so, this side bet is for you. The rules are simple:

    1. Ride your bike to a brewery or brewpub. I estimate that there are over 50 breweries or brewpubs that can be reached by bike from DC, over 10 of them are in DC.
    2. Acquire a beer brewed at that location.
    3. Take a picture of the beer.
    4. Taste the beer.
    5. Post on this thread the picture of the beer, the location, and a comment about the beer. It can be anything from "tastes mostly like beer" to "the hop aroma contained grapefruit pith and apricot that was matched by a good malt backbone, which added a hint of graham cracker".
    6. Whomever posts entries from the most number of breweries or brewpubs by the end of Freezing Saddles wins!
    7. The winner will receive a bottle of beer that reflects the nature of the competition. If only a few participate and the winner had 3 entries, then you will get a good bottle but nothing super special. If the competition is heated and the winner has 30 entries, then I will do my best to get something special.

    A few further clarifications:

    1. BE SAFE! No riding while under the influence. If you rode your bike to the brewery but find that you need to get a ride or take Metro home, the entry still counts.
    2. You can go to more than one brewery on a ride, but see above.
    3. The beer must be made at that location. Having a 3 Stars at the local bar does not count. Nothing at the Capital City in DC counts because it is all made in Shirlington.
    4. Some brewpubs have more than one location. A trip to each location counts.
    5. Keep in mind that this competition is to visit the most number of breweries and brewpubs. Once you visit and have a beer at a brewery or brewpub, then you cannot post another entry for that brewery or brewpub, even if you go back later and try a different beer.
    6. It is not required, but try to go on at least one brewery tour. Fun, educational and you usually get to sample beer.

    Default I like beer

    What are the rules about location?

    If I happen to plan a few out of town trips during FS, may I count those visits?

    New Year's Day Beerneuring at Bluejacket with Komorebi. Bluejacket is my favorite brewpub. Yummy falafel burger paired with a Houses in Motion, which was described as a "Super Saison". Bluejacket typically has a lot of farmhouse beer options. This beer was fruity with coriander, black pepper, ginger and light hops.

    I decorated it with my sweet Freezing Saddles zipper pull.

    If you ride your bike to them and follow the rules, then no problem!

    Sounds like a good opportunity to host a Social Butterfly event.

    Bummer that this is before the start date of the Social Butterfly event... (hmm... should I change the start date?!)

    But if you are interested in joining in (13 breweries!), let me know and I will fill you in on the details.

    13 Breweries in one ride, or even one day is a lot. I may have some experience in this. There are others that may have the same experiences.

    If you think 13 breweries is going to win this challenge, I have a bridge for sale that might interest you.
