We love to ride. Winter especially.
So we’re super excited to announce that Whiprsnapr Brewing Co. and the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association (OMBA) are coming together on a beer collab and OMBA Day event at the brewery. We’re aiming to generate more awareness for the club, and get more people to sign-on as members!
Did you know… that the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association (OMBA) incorporated in 2012 as a Not for Profit organization to meet the requirements of the City of Ottawa for joint stewardship of the South March Highlands (SMH) trail network. They host weekly group rides, events including movie nights, trail building workshops and trail maintenance days and a Social Enduro to name a few. Their membership is a ridiculously low $25/yr? And as members, you receive free access to the Larose Forest trail network, discounts on season passes at Camp Fortune bike park and the NCC winter bike trail network!
Collab beer?! Yup, a delicious Mountain IPA for a mountain bike club! A mountain IPA has elements of both east and west coast IPA’s. East (Citra) and West (Summit and Centennial) Coast hops, a pinch of east coast water profile and a bit of west coast hop bitterness. Intense tropical fruit and bright piney hop flavours and aromas. Body slight haze, with full body and a smooth finish.
It’s a perfect blend and silky smooth – just like riding SMH in the winter!
