Pintail Pale Ale

5.7% ABV • 15 SRM • 47 IBU

Karl Straus Pintail Pale Alw

As far as hops go, Pintail Pale Ale offers the best of both hemispheres. Motueka hops from New Zealand’s South Island provide a vibrant tropical aroma, while multiple additions of American-grown Cascades lend zesty citrus hop flavors. Finishing crisp and dry, it’s the perfect session beer for hop heads.

When you spot a pintail headed towards the beach, odds are the surf is way up. And where this board provides balance on big waves, Pintail Pale Ale brings balance to big hops. We wanted to brew a session beer with huge hop flavors, so we created Pintail - a dry-hopped pale ale from the West Coast.

A Note from the Training Director

San Diego Bicycle Club
The D-5 Ride - Only One Saturday Left!!

Our weekly D-5 beginner’s ride wraps up this Saturday, August 30th - Labor Day weekend.  If you know someone who is interested in cycling but doesn’t have a clue about what to do or where to begin, the D-5 ride is the answer. An easy 8-12 mile ride that does NOT go up Torrey Pines.  Our team of coaches tailors each ride to the participating riders, working on specific skills for each.  The rides are free and open to everyone.  But they end in is near, so introduce your friends and loved ones to Cycling 101 now.

For Sale: Ay-up Complete Lighting System

Click for larger image Click for larger image

I am selling my Ay-Up complete lighting system because I got a new kit for a gift. I used these lights for night MTB rides. They provide plenty of light to have a wonderful night ride. The light is bright and clear. You can read about Ay-Up lights here:

These lights are also very good for road riding commuters. The kit has tons of stuff. 3 batteries for all occasions, chargers (including car), mounts and etc. The kits retail for $380+shipping brand new. The batteries last a long time. I've never had my lights run out of juice on a night ride. $150 is the price so don't send me messages with other offers. The lights are guaranteed for life and practically indestructible.
