Houston Bike & Brew Circuit

Sunday, noon

Five of local breweries have teamed up to put on the Houston Bike & Brew Circuit, an 11-mile ride with beers available at each stop (though no purchase is necessary). To join, pick up a stamp card at Holler Brewing Co., New Magnolia, Urban South, Platypus or Eureka Heights and then collect a stamp at each stop. Visit at least four of the five and turn your card in at any brewery and you'll earn a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last, you can visit the breweries in any order). Tap and Pedal will be on the trails to fix flats and help you find your way.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
