Bikes N’Brew 2022

Bikes N’Brew returns in 2022 for you to explore the latest Cleveland breweries and visit old favorites! Bikes N’Brew is an unsupported bicycle tour through Cleveland’s expanding brew network and surrounding neighborhoods. There will be 20, 40, and 60 mile-ish suggested route options with cue sheets & maps provided – but most riders freeform a route of their own via smartphone.

Limited to the 21 and over crowd and 150 participants, this event is a fundraiser for Bike Cleveland, and a super way to explore the city.

You’ll be issued a passport to validate at each brewery you visit on event day, which will unlock a discount for a future visit within the next 6 months! The more you ride, the more offers you earn! Your entry fee also includes:

  • A post-ride pint from our hosts at Forest City Brewery

Is the course marked? No. However you will be armed with a cue sheet and maps with suggested routes. Most riders use their smartphones to navigate between points.

I see you said -ish miles up top. Is it more than 20 or 40 or 60? Depending on routing, roads, conditions, and most logical ways from brewery to brewery, it could be a few miles more or less, but we’ll do our best to keep it there or under. Pretty sure you will be having so much fun that you won’t even notice, though.

Should I bring a lock? Yes, a lock is recommended. And a HELMET IS REQUIRED.

What if I break down on the route? Can I call someone? A friend, sure. However this is an unsupported ride. (Read: No SAG) Please be sure your bike is in good working order and you have supplies to help you out on the road.

Is this on roads or paths? Both. All riders should be comfortable with sharing the road and should obey all traffic laws.
