Few things in the world go together like bikes and beer, especially good beer like that of New Belgium Brewery. Showing the proof right on their logo, New Belgium has always been an advocate for two wheeled human power and is showing it again for National Bike Month. Until the end of May, you will find the smiling PeopleForBikes logo wrapped around every bottle of Fat Tire and Ranger IPA across the nation reminding people to join the movement. Over the years New Belgium has helped bike related non-profits raise over $2 million through sales of their beer at the Tour De Fat Bicycle Carnival across the US. It’s almost the weekend so go ride your bike, and toast National Bike Month after the ride. And don’t forget to sign the pledge.
Full PR after the break.
