You're lucky it only took two hours.

Wow am I thirsty now!
My hat off to you, Mr. Bowenz, for a successful and epic adventure of a lifetime.
I will be telling a lot of people about this.
You are my hero.

I made Forbes Magazine last month on this adventure , you can read it here:
http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2010/0628/life-beer-homebrew-bowen-allsopps-artic-extreme-brewing.html
The stuff dreams are made of. Beer and motorcycles. Looks like a BMW 1150GS and an R100 airhead. I've got an '04 1150GS Adv and a '73 R75/5. Great bikes.

Come on. 3100 miles in 3 weeks? In Canada!! There's nothing wrong with that ride.

Is this documentary going to be like Alton Brown and "Feasting on Asphalt"? Can't wait to see it. Good work.

Thanks Blane and others ,

What made it difficult was the filming and the weather, it did rain almost 1/2 of the days we were on the road, and stopping constantly to setup shot sequences, and then having to repeat them over and over again. Once we reached the arctic area, it was cold 40degrees, very wet , and high winds, very different than your usual ride, plus helping setup camp , cooking , packing up each day, it was more exhausting than I had imagined.

Yes, I ride a 01, 1150 GS and my partner John rides a 77,R60/7

Bikes and beer go together well , we have some fantastic video and stills of the trip.

The recipe is unusual for 1852, but similar to an English Barleywine, however at this time I am not disclosing it, however I will post it freely for all without reservations and certainly free of charge (but it took me 2 years of research to find it).
I am an amateur brewer so I can't sell beer, but back in April of this year I brewed 16bbls of the recipe at www.thebrewworks.com , you may be able to obtain a bottle from them by contacting Beau Baden the head brewer, I think it depends on the state you are located in.

Here's a little video ( homemade by the brewery) of our send-off party, this was at 10am on a Sunday morning , but we had almost 250 people , great showing of support for this trip.
