Beer Week: Bikes and beer come full circle

At Chain Links and Craft Drinks, bikes lined the rack and leaned up against patio tables at the Independent Bar and Cafe in Tampa as patrons waited in a long line Saturday to sip on craft brews from Gulfport's very own Cycle Brewing. A purchase of one of the three Cycle Brewing beers, Freewheel Pale Ale, Bottom of the 9th Brown Ale and Goodnight Imperial Stout, awarded enthusiasts with a raffle ticket to win a T-shirt, water bottle, glass or a growler with a free refill.

Attendees also had the chance to sample craft beers from Dogfish Head, Saint Somewhere (Tarpon Springs), Samuel Adams, Lagunitas, Stone Brewing and Henry Weinhard.

Seminole Heights bicycle boutique shop Velo Champ partnered with the event. Owner Jordan Miller thought the connection between craft beers and cycling obvious. "If you drew a Venn diagram of cycling, craft beer and coffee, you'd almost have overlapping circles."
