Drinking and biking may be just as dangerous as drinking and driving, but the Growler City Bike isn't promoting that. Made for those who love their beer, especially beer that is sold in the folkloric jug, the bicycle boasts a special attachment quite like a water bottle cage that is larger and sturdier to hold one.

Designed by Joey Ruiter, a designer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Growler City Bike was more specifically inspired by his local 'West-ee’s.' Ruiter explains, "The West-ee’s is a term for people in our community that lost their license for DUI and now use bicycles for everything." For those unable to give up the bar-cruising lifestyle, the Growler City Bike will suit their needs perfectly. Stats for Beer-Inspired Bicycles Trending: Older & Buzzing
