Video: Help brew a beer - by taking a bike ride!

Pedalling static bike helps grind the grains for Seattle's Flying Lion Brewing...

Cycling's a good way of working up a thirst, and we enjoy a post-ride beer or two here at towers, so this caught our eye - a microbrewery in the United States has rigged up a bike to help with the brewing process.

It's at Flying Lion Brewing in Seattle, Washington, and its purpose is to fine-grind the grains that help make the beer.

While you won't get the finished pint for your efforts, handily there is a cup-holder on the handlebars to enable you to have a beer as you pedal.

Can't speak for Seattle police but the cycle-haters where I live would ticket that kid for drinking on a bike.
