I posted a similar question in the Fatbike forums a few weeks ago, but thought I'd ask here since it's getting close.

I was wondering if there was anywhere to rent a Fatbike for the day around Denver? I had a couple offers from people to ride their personal bikes, but would rather ride a rented one. Let me know if anyone has any ideas or suggestions.

My girlfriend used to go to Johnson and Wales in Denver and has been wanting to make a trip back for a while now. We are leaving for Denver on Jan.14th next week and I'll probably have some riding days between the 15th and 18th.

Also, if anyone has some suggestions on where to get a good helping of local beer:D...really good pubs, resturants, or whatever. I'm open for good selection and is one off my main plans of the trip, lol. She's going to visit and see old friends and I'm going for BEER! That's bad, lol.

Thanks in advanced for any help.

Yes, that is definitely one of the places on my list along with some Fat Tire to keep in the hotel fridge.

Does anyone who has lived in Colorado for more than a few years actually like Fat Tire? It really isn't very good beer.

Try Alpha for fatbike rental. They usually have a few Pugsleys for rent, but I'm not sure what they are carrying this year. Give them a call.

I've had Fat tire and enjoyed it. I'm more of a stonger more hopped up beer drinker, but kinda enjoyed the sweetness. I guess I struck a nerve with the CO. guys, lol.

Well, I'm from the land of Dogfish Head, so I know a good brew. I've only had FT a couple times and thought it was a decent easy drinker. I enjoy a rich IPA or a dark stout myself. Great Divides Samurai was pretty good along with there DPA. Can't wait to sample some others.

Titan is their flagship. It renders DPA pretty much tasteless. :D

And be sure to try their Hercules... for some it's over the top. I like it. :thumbsup:

Oh - and make sure to get over to the Bull-n-Bush and try their offerings. They've usually got some pretty consistently good stuff. Sometimes they even have the goods cask-conditioned.

I'll definitely get my fill. Hope you guys see me as a fellow biker and beer drinker and not a pesky tourist. I know all too well of tourists at the beach. I live 10 min from the beach here in Delaware and half the year it's filled with Tourons as we call them. But, hey they do bring some decent money to our area.;)

Lol, I say the same about where I live. She lived there for a few years when she went to school and her best friend still lives there. She loves Denver and has been wanting to go back. I figured I'd get some new beers in while I'm out there, so what the hey;)

Hoppy: Ska Modus Hoperandi, Odell IPA, Avery IPA, Ska Decadent, Avery Maharaja, Tommyknocker Pickaxe IPA, Oskar Blues Dales Pale Ale, the list goes on and on. Flat Tire is a joke reserved for Texans visiting Summit county. You're coming to the best state for local craft brews; no need to settle for anything else. I'm not one to knock on New Belgium as Ranger IPA is good.

Fat Bike Rental? You know our snow is all gone, right? No sand unless you hit Fruita. How about a 6.5 inch trail bike or a rigid 29er single speed? Those be some Colorado rigs.
