Craft Beer on Wheels Giveaway

If you’ve traveled any of the Bay Area’s scenic byways you’ve passed your share of bikers climbing steep hills or coasting around narrow corners. Their often decked out in the latest gear from head to toe, which usually includes a colorful jersey and hat. I’ve seen many branded with team names, sponsors and countries, but never a craft beer brand.

That might change with the latest edition of jerseys and caps produced by the Portland based apparel companies Retro and Micro Beer Jerseys. They’ve partnered with nine different breweries, including Anchor and Schmaltz Brewing, so bikers can tell us whose calories they’re burning. Anchor Brewing offered up it’s classic Anchor Steam and Liberty labels, while Shmaltz chose it’s hypnotic Coney Island Lager and Mermaid Pilsner brands. Sorry ladies, only the last one is available in your size.

These jerseys won’t compliment my figure, but maybe a certain father you know would appreciate them on his special day. Hint, hint. Why not win one?

GIVEAWAY > BACB is happy to offer the Anchor Steam cap seen below to one of our readers courtesy of Micro Beer Jerseys. All you have to do is leave a comment below by Noon (PST) on Friday (6/10) that lets us know you want it. A winner will be selected at random and announced Friday afternoon.
