What you had to say

We went to Twitter & Facebook to find out how you Good Beer Folks balance fitness & patio beers this summer:

Try to only have the beers 1-2 a week, and drink something good like a Steam Whistle

My Monday nights consist of playing in a @TorontoSSC Ultimate Frisbee league followed by a cold one, a perfect pairing.

I workout so I can drink beer and attempt to not get fat.

I balanced my beer enjoyment by biking across Canada at the same time

Hold a bottle in each hand, then alternate between them, strengthens arms.
