While all being keen cyclists, TSC team members have also been known to take a beer or two as well. The team has spent a considerable amount of time in both France and Belgium as well as their home turf of the UK, and has naturally selected a few personal favourite ales along the way, as well as their own homebrew’s….
Homebrew: “St Pol Star” (2009)
Created in memory of Driver William Snook who died during World War I and is burried in the small French village of St Pol sur Ternoise in the Pas-de-Calais department.
Homebrew “Ventoux Victory Ale” (2010)
Created after four of the team’s members completed their goal of becomming Cingles du Mont Ventoux as well as two other members ascending the windy mountain from Bedoin.
Homebrew: Ale d’Huez (2011)
Brought into life after TSC raised over £1200 by climbing Alpe d’Huez twice in one day
Homebrew: “Mackem Slayer” (2012)
A powerful lager that delivered when it mattered, Mackem Slayer was invented to bring a laugh to the team bus on their pre-Xmas trip to the Gent Six Days track meet.
Other worldwide beers to help the team recouperate after a big climb or cross race:
Ewe’s Juice (UK)
We are very much into experimenting with new ales, and if your company needs any taste-testing and critically reviewed we are always on hand to do it and we won’t charge a penny for our services! The team like to keep refreshed on our trips, so if your brewery would like to sponsor our trip then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
