    Default FSSB #3 Beerneuring

    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 40 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.

    Let me know if you have any questions and HAVE FUN!

    oh. this is a thing i will put extra effort into. it combines two of my favorite things!

    as a question, does a place like Gordon Biersch count? i know they brew beer at each of their locations, but i'm not sure that a brewery-restaurant is the same thing as a brewery proper.

    Points of clarification

    I presume home brewing does not count. The beer must be commercially available. But beer sold at a special event does count , IE if New District does another event before opening officially, that could count.

    Based on what I recall from last year, yes, each GB location counts.

    This. I know I used two of them last year, but never made it to the third (that was my backup in case Bruno threatened to edge me out!).

    Trust me: if you want to win everything, focus on riding, not on beer. (If you want to win just this, you can focus on both, but particularly the beer! )

    I suspect that if you overindulge in order to win the Beerneuring challenge, you are less likely to win anything else!

    Yes, Gordon Biersch counts if you drink a beer that is brewed at that location.
