My friends over at Hot Knives have put together their first (annual? we can only hope) “La Grand Crew Beer Ride ‘007,” and anyone who likes quality beers, or who’s on the Two Wheels Better Than Four Wheels wagon, will be thrilled at their inspired pairing. It’s a bike tour through the NELA area, toward Los Feliz a bit, and then back to Echo Park, all with the goal of appreciating good beer. Not crappy beer. Good beer.
Stops include Highland Park’s mysterious-yet-wonderful Rock’n’Roll 7-11 (famed for its constant inundation of classic rock, and a stop on the tour for its fridge cases of microbrews–who knew?); Galco’s, Cap’n’Cork and more. The brilliant thing for boozehounds is the discount bikers on this tour will be receiving at each stop; tourgoers get a percentage off their purchases at each location. Of course, you are not encouraged to actually imbibe ’til y’all reach the tour’s terminus at Echo Park Lake.
Now that’s compelling.
(Knowing them, they’ll actually have, like, toasted pecans or something…they’re all up in that cheffy bizznitch.)
The ride is this coming Saturday at 10am, meeting up at the Gold Line Metro Highland Park station. To get on the tour, email the dudes at [email protected]
