Oskar Blues Brewery wants you to know that drinking beer and staying fit don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

That’s why they’re hosting monthly bike rides that start and finish at the brewery in North Austin.

Cyclists meet at 6 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month at the brewery, where they can get beers for $2. The bike ride begins at 7 p.m., and cyclists return to the brewery afterward for more beers. (I’d recommend drinking after the ride instead of before, but that’s just me.)

The next “Reeber Madness Night Ride” (named for that 1936 weed-smoking classic and Reeb Cycles) is set for Jan. 17. The brewery is located at 10420 Metric Boulevard.

“Staying fit is a huge part of the Oskar Blues culture,” a press release said. “The brewery was the first to put their own craft beer in cans and did so because it was more portable for mountain bike trips and because cans are better for environment.”

The brewery also hosts an annual Burning Can event that features a 5K Beer Relay, and it’s the official craft beer sponsor of the Austin Marathon and the Beer Mile World Championships.
