Hmmm, I think it's a four way tie as far as favorite beers of the moment:
Alesmith Anvil, Alesmith IPA, Blind Pig IPA, and Russian River IPA (Green Flash's West Coast IPA and Rayon Vert are fighting for a second-place spot though)

My bike is a Target-special "Schwinn" road bike (chinese crap-o bike) that I ride to work- no mods apart from a Fizik Alliante saddle.

I would probably say my current favorite is Greenflash Hophead Red or RR Concecration. My bike right now is a 2010 Rocky Mountain Altitude 50. I am looking to pick up a Bikesdirect roadbike soon.

On bike, I get about 85mpg (of Wookey Jack).


(the math)
240 calories per 12oz Wookey Jack =2560 calories in one gallon Wookey Jack
... divided by 30 calories burned per mile of biking
