21 Apr Ride Bikes, Drink Beer: BBC 10-Speed Hoppy Wheat Day Returns, Saturday April 23rd
Celebrate Bloomington Brewing Company’s annual 10-Speed Hoppy Wheat Day on Saturday, April 23, in the Brewpub at Lennie’s. Join us for a fun-filled day of celebrating two of Bloomington’s favorite pastimes — Riding Bikes and Drinking Beer!
This year, there are two ride options. We are leading a no-drop, all skill levels ride that leaves the BBC Brewpub at 2 PM. Show up early and see our friends from Salt Creek Cycles who will be offering free bike tune-ups before the ride. Indiana on Tap is also hosting their sold-out 3rd Annual Bloomington Tour de Biere, a casual 9-mile ride with stops at each Bloomington’s fine breweries that day. Both rides will end at the BBC Brewpub by 4 PM when the 10-Speed festivities begin.
We’ll be sharing special tappings, including funky firkins and our very first 10-Speed Radler, at 4 PM in the pub. You’ll also have chances to win cool prizes, including merchandise, gift cards and a vintage 10-speed bicycle, restored and tricked out with a royal 10-Speed treatment by Salt Creek Cycles. Winners will be announced at 5 PM.
Representatives from the Monroe County Energy Challenge will also be there with an Energy Bike! Pedal this bike to light incandescent, CFL, and LED bulbs, a fan, a hairdryer, and other everyday items to see how much energy each takes!
Voted “Best Beer of 2013” by Hoosier Beer Geek and rated 90 points on Beer Advocate, 10-Speed is translucent and golden-hued with earthy pine and tropical fruit notes rippling through each sip. Mosaic hops deliver their unique aromas of citrus and juicy pineapple with an invigorating finish of wheat bliss.
Malts: Pale, Red Wheat, Vienna
Spring has sprung. It’s time to ride bikes and drink beer!
