There are a few things that get us going here at IT, and bikes and beer happen to be two of them. So when we heard about the bike-powered bar now roaming the streets of Amsterdam from the good folks over at Treehugger, we were instantly intrigued. Here’s the gist:
The Fietscafe is a mobile pub, for groups up to 17 people per
bike, who can transport themselves by moving the pedals. Not all guests
do have to cycle; the Fietscafe is provided with 10 free wheels, so you
can change seats from time to time. You need a sober driver and of
course, the best bartender looks after the beer and drinks.
No word yet on whether these mobile pubs are serving local, organic beer, but apparently they’re sprouting up in London (where it’s called the Pubcrawler, appropriately enough) and Minneapolis as well. All we know is that this brings a whole new meaning to designating a driver.
