New Belgium is a bike-focused brewery, which organizes two-wheeled tours, encourages people to turn in their cars for cycles, and even has custom bikes made. But unless you work at New Belgium, where those cruisers are stored and gifted for years of service, the only way to get one is to win it.
Tonight you've got a chance at Ernie's Bar & Pizza.
The restaurant, which has become a real go-to spot in the Highland neighborhood, is teaming up with the brewery to hold Ride Your Bike to Ernie's Night. If you walk in the door after 3:30 p.m. today, you'll be given a raffle ticket to win the custom-made bicycle.
The winner won't be announced until between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., and you must be present to win. Fortunately, Ernie's menu has plenty to keep you busy -- including excellent selections of both pizza and beer, that time-honored combination.
