Maine Foodie Tours apparently knows how bikers like to reward themselves after a ride.

With beer.

The Portland-based company has included a "Bike and Brews Tour" to its list of options, pairing cyclists with lighthouses, scenic views and Allagash brews.

Bike and Brew is presented through a partnership with Summer Feet Bicycle Tours, also in Portland. The bike part of the tour lasts four hours and covers 12 miles, including lighthouses (Bug Light, Sprint Point Light and Portland Head Light), a gourmet picnic lunch at Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth and some interesting info about Portland's history. They'll even provide the bike and helmet.

The bikes are then put aside and tour-goers board a shuttle for a 2.5-hour brewery experience, including a nanobrewery, Allagash Brewing and one of Portland's brew pubs. The route will also include beer trivia with bottles of beer going to the winners. And with tours limited to 13 people your chances of winning beer are pretty good.

Anyone 21 and older can sign up for a tour any Tuesday through Columbus Day. Tickets are $125 per person and are full refundable if the tour is canceled due to weather.
