Ales are preferred by beer-drinking bicyclists in Northeast Ohio

The post-ride beer is a long and sacred bicycling tradition that has even been acknowledged by the Adventure Cycling Association.

Century Cycles conducted an online survey to ask Northeast Ohio bicyclists which style of beer they prefer after a bike ride. Among the 114 respondents, the overwhelming favorite was Ale/Pale Ale/IPA, which garnered 44% of the votes. That was followed by Wheat/Belgian (21%), Porter/Stout (18%), Light Beer (10%), and Lager (7%).

We conducted the survey in preparation for the “All Hail the Ale” Night Ride to celebrate Cleveland Beer Week tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.

Imagine our relief, then, when the Winking Lizard scored Left Hand Twin Sisters Double IPA and Sierra Nevada Porter (in cask) for the special post-Night-Ride keg-tapping that is the hallmark of all Cleveland Beer Week events. They are now statistically proven to make a lot of bicyclists very happy!
