No, this isn't about admitting to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year! There's a somewhat consistent schedule -- usually the 4th Saturday of the month -- and you can qualify for the F-12 Award.

The ride takes the lakefront trail south from the Clock Tower. You can join up anywhere along the trail. Just let the group know where so they can look for you.

42 miles total if to return you ride to Hammond and take the South Shore Line, 45 miles total if you ride to Flossmoor Station and take the Metra, 50 if you ride to 93rd and take the Metra or to 100th and take the J14, 55 if you ride to 71st and take the J14, 70 if you ride all the way. 15-18 mph. I like to get there before they open at 11:00 (it's still the eighth-best brewery in the world, so sometimes there's a line). Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Online resources: Google map, cue sheet, South Shore Line schedule, Metra Electric train schedules, Jeffrey Jump (J14) bus schedule, Bikes on the South Shore Line, Bikes on the Metra, Bikes on the Bus, and, to save a minute at the start, the nifty online CCC waiver.

nothing new since last time (last weekend), might be a good time to revisit old favorites:

  • Permanent Funeral
    10.5% ABV 100 IBU $5 Half Pint

    The wolf inside this pale ale is trying to walk upright. This bright and aromatic beer was brewed with our friends in the band Pig Destroyer.

  • Stack N Stabb
    8.5% ABV 57 IBU $5 Tulip

    This spicy and bracing Belgian style pale ale is dedicated to those warriors that truly stack and stab in the heat of battle.

  • Dreadnaught IPA
    100 IBU 9.5% ABV $5 Half Pint

    An Imperial India Pale Ale with an intense citrus hop aroma, a huge malt body and a crisp finish.

  • Alpha King
    68 IBU 6.66% ABV $5 Imperial Pint

    A bold yet balanced American Pale Ale with slight caramel sweetness and aggressive citrus hoppiness. This is our flagship beer.

and at 18th street:

  • Disciple's Revenge IPA - Imperial / Double
    9.8% ABV
    Under the innocent guise of a floral, citrus aroma, lies in wait the power of the true Imperial Indian Pale Ale.
    5oz Draft $3.00 • 13oz Draft $6.00 • 22oz $11.00
  • 3 Fonteinen Hommage (2015) Lambic - Framboise
    6% ABV
    25.4oz Bottle $100.00
