A view over REEB Ranch

A view over REEB Ranch

It’s well-known that the folks at Oskar Blues have a thing for bikes. The Longmont, Co.-based brewery has its own line of trail bicycles called REEB and hosts all sorts of bike-related events at its brewery. They’re taking that passion a step further at REEB Ranch, a new campsite and bike playground now open near the brewery’s Brevard, N.C., facility. And you can visit.

REEB is currently open as an event facility and wedding venue (saying “I do” surrounded by beer and mountains? Rad.), and is available for camping and as a staging site for bike trips. Accommodations include a six-person apartment, a cabin and camp grounds, available for rent through REEB’s website.

Even if you’re not a cyclist or camper, you can check out the picturesque ranch on July 18 at the brewery’s Burning Can Festival. The all-day affair includes canned beer from 45 breweries, live music, mountain bike rides through Dupont State Forest, BMX competitions and more. Save the date, and dig that camping gear out of storage.

Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
