A brevet is not a race. This does not mean a brevet is easy. Roads, the weather, mechanicals, even your own body can work against you. But you can do this. You can go the distance. You can learn to like IPAs.You may already like IPAs. This IPA is meant to be approachable, but not watered down. Huge notes of orange, mango and pine resin dominate, but bitterness is restrained. Flavorful, but not aggressive. Workmanlike, not flashy.

How long can you trackstand? One hand? No hands? While drinking this beer? Like its namesake, this beer is all about balance. It’s a careful interplay between the nutty sweetness of fresh Pilsner malt and the gentle bitterness of Hüll Melon hops.

This edition of our test batch series is a NEIPA. We brewed a wort hopped with a bunch of fun, tropical hops and then split the batch between a variety of different yeasts.

Ask just about any bike mechanic about Sheldon Brown and you're bound to hear all about his encyclopedic, forever-90's-era website that covers everything from obscure bottom bracket standards to how to lace up a bicycle wheel. Sadly, Brown passed away in 2008, but he lives on through his website and, we hope, through this brown ale brewed in his memory. It features a rich malt base, which brings notes of chocolate and toast, with a good dose of American hops for a pleasant citrus finish without too much bitterness.

Named after the distance of the Paris-Brest-Paris cycling event, this double IPA is our Brevet IPA amped up to ridiculous levels. A staggering amount of hops contribute bold notes of citrus, mango and resiny pine, all backed up by an assertive level of bitterness.

Left, right, left, right. 90 RPM, that cadence is smooth as silk. A perfect pedal stroke is a thing of beauty. Only malt (no pedals) was mashed in the making of this beer. With waves of chocolate and toasted malt flavor, it will have you gliding along like the smoothest rouleur.

Spend any time cycling in Worcester and you'll quickly realize that there are more than the oft-quoted "seven hills." Newton, Bancroft, Green, Chandler, Hancock, Union, College, Airport, Belmont, Grafton, Indian, and plenty that don't have names. Climb them and you've certainly earned a glass of Hilltopper. This Belgian blond ale showcases fruity and spicy esters from a traditional Trappist yeast strain, while a touch of sweet orange peel brings depth to the flavor profile.

Known as "de Kannibaal van Baal", Sven Nys dominated cyclocross for the better part of a decade. Nys was both a fierce competitor and a crowd favorite, and we think this beer is a fitting tribute to the two time World Champion. Aggressively hopped, but perfectly balanced with caramel malt, Kannibaal is sure to be enjoyed by athletes and spectators alike.

Like a single-speed bike, our flagship pale ale is a stripped down beer showcasing a single hop. A well rounded malt bill is complemented by additions of the featured hop throughout the brewing process.
