Q: What, exactly, is this ride about?
A: Schnoctobeerfest is a bike & beer buffet. We start with a meet & greet, complete with drinks, & then, have a 50, or so, mile ride, followed by a feast, ending the festivities with a beer judging.
Q: Are you guys fast cyclists?
A: Some of us are fast & some of us were fast, once. The thing that is cool about CiTy BiLLy is that we can co-exist (especially when the fast guys don't know the course).
Q: How much is the entry fee?
A: For this ride, you have to bring a six pack of beer to enter in the competition. The categories are: best microbrew, best beer under $7 per six pack, best label art (believe me, eDBiLLy knows his art), best import, best domestic & wildcard. Some new rules this year- your six pack has to be all one style of beer (in the industry, we call it a sku). In other words, you can't bring a sampler six, and enter all your beers in the competition. The only exception (Please, Lee!) is if you bring beer you made yourself. For this fee, you get schwag (pics forthcoming), the ride & food & beer afterwards. Be prepared to sample a bunch of beers you've never tasted before! Instead of our typical entry fee this year, there will be a goodwill offering, to be explained shortly, & trust me, will be extremely worthy.
