You may have heard about how The People's Pint was supporting bicycling in general and MassBike specifically back in June. Last week we had a chance to enjoy the beer along with the support during a Training Wheels tasting at the Craft Beer Cellar in Newton.
At the tasting a steady stream of people came in, sampled the American session ale, and chatted with us about bicycling. Training Wheels was a big hit with the crowd, and we enjoyed getting to know fellow beer and bike lovers.
The People's Pint's Alden Booth presented us with a check for $310, representing 25 percent of the profits from the sale of Training Wheels. The People's Pint has been supporting bicycling from their Greenfield, MA brewpub since 2003 with their Bike to Live program. Bike to Live encourages patrons to travel to their restaurant by bike instead of car and logs miles to demonstrate the impact of the program. They currently have over 63,000 bike miles logged on their website. Looking at all of the aspects of promoting cycling, from financial to physical, is part of what makes The People's Pint a brewery with a serious focus on biking.
A percentage of the profits of Training Wheels still goes to MassBike. If you want to support MassBike and have a taste of the "hop forward" Training Wheels ale, you can find it at many craft beer stores. If you are lucky enough to live nearby, bike on over to the People's Pint brewpub for a taste.
