Every beer has a story, whether brewed by nuns on an Appalachian mountaintop or secreted out of a private brewery in the night by a pro-prohibition politician in 1928. Even the mainstays - the Budweisers of the world - have a story of some sort.
The Pike Brewing Company has a pretty fun story, as far as beer stories go. Its original location was in Seattle's LaSalle Hotel, better known as the city's most infamous brothel. Pike's XXXXX Stout was named for the longshoremen and sailors that visited the brothel. (And its Naughty Nellie is named for the brothel's madam.) Since then the World Beer Championships named it a Top 10 Brewery, and the company has moved a half-block away to a new location. But the XXXXX Stout remains the same.
Micro Beer Jerseys are made by Retro Image Apparel, which specializes in retro cycling clothing (obviously). Its jerseys are club cut, meaning they have a roomier fit than a race-cut jersey like those from Capo or Castelli. If you prefer a tighter fit, go down one size.
