Road-Themed Beers
« on: September 23, 2011, 11:55:02 AM »

In Lee Vining, CA, I noticed a possible good pairing with Route 11 Chips:



I'll try it out this weekend. Are there any others you've seen on the road?

Last year's SEPA Meet was held at the birthplace of Route 113 India Pale Ale.

There is the Highway 78 Ale. It's a scotch ale named after the 78 freeway which connects Stone in Escondito, Green Flash in Vista, and Pizza Port on Carlsbad, CA. It's a joint brew between all three breweries.

There's A1A Aleworks, in St. Augustine.

That got me thinking; are the federal road sign images and devices public domain? I'd figure the state shield use laws probably vary from state to state.

Yes, anything the federal government creates is PD. I believe the MUTCD makes it explicitly so as well. State road shields are kind of iffy but it seems like an unlikely target for litigation so it probably wouldn't be much to worry about.

I may buy the SR 0113 IPA again some day, but I'm not going to patronize their restaurant again.

I've been home brewing for a few years now, and I think I'll have to name one of my next batches something roadgeek.  I'm thinking something having to do with the 91, as you NEED a beer after driving that beast! I'll post a picture when I bottle and label.

I think we need a beer named after the legendary section of 710 between Valley Boulevard and Pasadena.

actually, thinking about that too hard makes me want a shot of whiskey.  or three.

I think a fifth would be justified for that!  I got caught in horrible traffic there about a year ago due to a wreck.  It was a parking lot, AND I had a crying baby in my backseat as well.  Great times.  X-(

Just make a mixed drink, served in a small glass, and call them..."Freeway Shooters"!

Nothing goes better than talking about roads while not driving than beer.

Two Roads (Stratford, CT) has been making a big push up here lately, and now that every fourth person in the US owns a microbrewery, there are tons that latch onto road nostalgia.

The aforementioned Two Roads, for example, puts out:

Rye 95
Honeyspot Road White IPA (Conn. Tpk. drivers will recognize the exit the brewery's located at, one of the last blue signs to come down)
No Limits Hefeweizen (notable because the label features the "international" blue/white two-lanes-under-an-overpass freeway symbol)

Then there is of course the storied Post Road Pumpkin Ale, one of the earliest of the plague of pumpkin beers. 

But there are many more.  Surely one of you is enjoying one right now.

Beer and Roads... Together at Last!
« Reply #17 on: December 13, 2014, 05:27:12 AM »

Yesterday, I came across a Facebook post from a local brewery here in Upstate New York that had announced that they were releasing a beer with a road related name for sale. The beer is I-87 IPA from the Davidson Brothers Brewery in Glens Falls, NY.

That had gotten me to thinking, what other beverages (beer, wine, soft drinks, etc.) are named after roads. I know that the 2010 Southeast Pennsylvania brewery was hosted at Sly Fox Brewery, which brews the Route 113 IPA, as the brewery is located on PA 113.  I recall a beer that was for sale when I was staying in Mammoth Lakes, California a few years back with a US 395 shield on the label, but I do not recall the name of the beer itself or even the brewery that brews that beer.  With all of this being said, perhaps others can chime in on names of beers named after roads.

Finally, they could have done a better job with designing the tap handle (as seen below), but I like the name of the beer.

Just a few items I have discovered here in Louisiana.  In fact, I found the juice in my daughter's school yesterday when I ate holiday lunch with her.

The Flying Fish NJ Turnpike Exit Series Beers.  Started brewing around 2009.  The NJ Turnpike was never too excited about the beer's branding.

The only one that comes to mind around these parts is the Going to the Sun IPA put out by the Great Northern Brewing company, named after the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road through Glacier National Park.

And they actually make it relevant to the exits; nice.

On a side note, who else here is a fan of beer (particularly the craft/micro variety) in general?
