Welp folks, the Tour is upon us, so I thought it time to revisit a thread from last year – the new and improved, (un)official 2022 Adult Recovery Beverage of the Tour Of Sufferlandria (ARBTOS) thread! (Bonus points for local and backstory).
Stage 1 - Giro d’Italia Donne
After a ridiculous two+ hours of racing in the Giro d’Italia Donne (#girlsonbikes), I will be recovering with a ThunderBoom New England IPA from my friend, brewer, and local hero Ray Berry at White Lion Brewing Company.
Ray and White Lion are dedicated to racial equity, minority business opportunities, and community development in the local area. No-one better to pair with Team DPF and to recover/prep for Stage 2…
While it’s empty atm, there really is only 1 ARB for me
Wow but check out that pantry, @Glen.Coutts!
When I have this beer glass … it does not matter the beverage … true!
I guess I am just a wimp, I prefer chocolate milk.
My pantry does need to be restocked though.
Nope, to each his or her respective own. If you’re drinking chocolate milk for it’s recovery benefits, that definitely makes it an ARBTOS!
As you may know, that glass has seen more saddle time than me so…
By the looks of that beer, you must be on the west coast
Has everything a tired body needs!
Tbt, I usually fill it with Diet Dr Pepper,
For stage one, I’m going with the Blood Orange IPA from Bravus Brewing. Bravus is a craft brewery founded in 2015 that makes NA and low alcohol beers that taste fantastic. Keeping it NA for Stage 1, it’s going to be a long tour.
Hey, I’ve seen them here on the East Coast before too!
…I’ll trade you a six of ‘black and tan’ for your flag??
Sir @ronburgundy, you’ll have to pry that flag out of my cold dead hands, i.e. after Stage 4 (should I make it that far) .
