Race Day at APEX : Sunday April 8th

A note from Jesse at APEX: 

Howdy suds & 2-wheeled fans, If you love world class beer and watching the best riders in the world give it their all, you're in for a treat this coming Sunday.  We've got two events we'll be showing and cheering on at APEX that each represent the pinnacle of their respective disciplines on 2 wheels.

Sunday, April 8th 11AM-1PM.

First off:  The big show, MotoGP, the premier class in the world of motorcycle road racing returns from the off season with a few surprises. This year marks the return of the big engines, 1000cc displacement. That's a liter to you and me, so we'll be celebrating by selling Veltins Pilsener and Bayreuther's Aktien Original Helles Lager in 1 liter (1000cc) mugs for $1.50 off regular price! More power, more excitement and a shake up across the field should make for a hell of a race in Qatar for the only night race of the season. 

and then...

Sunday, April 8th, 4-7PM

Up next:  Known as the "Hell of the North", the Queen of the one day spring classics, we have the legendary Paris-Roubaix. First run in 1896, this punishing race sends the best in professional cycling over 160 miles of French back roads, including 27 separate sectors of brutal cobblestones covering 32 miles throughout the race. Since the course winds along the border with Belgium, we thought it'd be appropriate to bust out a really special keg for the occasion. We'll be tapping an exceedingly rare keg of T' Gaverhopke Koerseklakske to kick off the race.

It's going to be some beautiful weather this Sunday, so go for a ride and then get to APEX to cheer on the pros.  See you there!

** Thanks to Jesse for sending this over! These beers and races look like an exciting combination!
