‘Heckler’ Beer For Rowdy Bike Race Fans

You can only get it in Colorado, but craft brewery Boulder Beer introduced these canned suds in commemoration of the 2014 USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships to be held Boulder from Jan. 8-12.

The Heckler is a boozy Belgian Triple with an alcohol content of nearly 9 percent.

“We as a hometown brew and big fans of cyclocross wanted to put out our own little welcome mat,” said Boulder Beer spokesman Dan Weitz. “We brewed up 50 barrels and here we go.”

The brew will be available from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins, Colo., and sells for about $12 for a 4-pack of 16oz cans. —Sean McCoy
