Tasting Notes

Stage 1 | July 1

Time Trial | 7km

Copenhagen, Denmark

The Tour starts in Denmark this year with a short, punchy Time Trial. Time trials require a lot of POW-er. So let’s kick off the tour right with the Protect Our Winters (POW) Pale Ale.

Stage 2 | July 2

Flat | 199km

Roskilde to Nyborg, Denmark

Watch out for crosswind action today, especially on the 18km long Great Belt Bridge near the end of the stage. The wind may blow hard so the riders will have to ride harder.

Stage 3 | July 3

Flat | 182km

Velje to Sønderborg, Denmark

The last day in Denmark before the transfer to France. Most likely a day for the sprinters so hopefully they are still feeling bright.

Transfer Day | July 4

Stage 4 | July 5

Hilly| 172km

Dunkirk to Calais

A coastal route with short climbs and the chance of cross winds. Most likely to end in a sprint, this stage has a bit of everything, just like today’s beer, Compost Cookie Imperial Stout.

Stage 5 | July 6

Cobbles | 155km

Lille to Wallers Arenberg Porte du Hainaut

11 sectors (20km) of 20km of cobbles – reminiscent of the hell of the north. This will be a nervous day for the lightweight climbers.

Stage 6 | July 7

Flat | 220km

Binche to Longwy

A start in Belgium is perfect for the Fainters Dubbel, a Belgian Abbey-style beer displaying a flurry of malt flavours accentuated with raisins and spicy cloves.

Stage 7 | July 8

Hilltop Finish | 176km

Tomblaine to La Super Planche des Belles Filles

Not a true mountain stage, but the tough 7km climb to the finish is the first true test for the climbers in this year’s tour.

Stage 8 | July 9

Tough Finish | 186km

Dole to Lausanne

The stage finishes in Switzerland, where lager is the most preferred beer. With the Alps in view, it will be an undulating day with a tough final 4km.

Stage 9 | July 10

Mountains | 183km

Aigle to Les Chatel Portes du Soleil

A big day spent mostly in the Swiss Alps, with an uphill kick to the line needs a big beer like this big barrel-aged Doppelbock.

Rest Day | July 11

Stage 10 | July 12

Hill-Top Finish| 148km

Morzine to Megeve

A scenic ride along Alpine valleys and the shores of Lake Geneva before a 21km final climb.

Stage 11 | July 13

Mountains | 149km

Albertville to Col du Granon

A big climbing day including the Col du Télégraphe (11.9 km, 7.1%), the Col du Galibier (17.7km, 6.9%) and the Col du Granon (11.3 km, 9.2%). A big stage like this needs a big beer like this barrel aged Scotch Ale.

Stage 12 | July 14

Mountains | 166km

Briancon to Alpe d’Huez

Another brutal day, attacking the Col du Galibier (23km, 5.1%) and the Col du Télégraphe in the opposite direction before the Col de la Croix de Fer (29km, 5.2%) and finishing up Alpe d’Huez (13.8km, 8.1%). The riders will be dog tired by the end of this one.

Stage 13 | July 15

Flat | 193km

Bourg d’Oisans to Saint-Etienne

The battle for the green sprinter’s jersey will resume as the tour heads away from the Alps and towards the Pyrenees – celebrate with our green hopped IPA.

Stage 14 | July 16

Hilly | 1895km

Saint-Etienne to Mende

A hellish day through the Massif Central with a hard 3km climb just 1km before the line.

Stage 15 | July 17

Flat | 200km

Rodez to Carcassonne

A stage for the sprinters or perhaps a breakaway? Grab a box of choccies – or a Choc Orange Stout – to sit back and enjoy this one!

Rest Day | July 18

Stage 16 | July 19

Hilly | 179km

Carcassonne to Foix

A light session in the Pyrenees with two significant climbs before a downhill run into Foix.

Stage 17 | July 20

Mountains | 130km

Saint-Gaudens to Peyragudes

A relatively short stage with four hard Pyrenean climbs and a tough finish. Interestingly it will be the 3rd runway finish of the Tour.

Stage 18 | July 21

Mountains | 143km

Lourdes to Hautacam

The final mountain test of the Tour, finishing on the Hautacam climb (13.6km, 7.8%). A day suited to a big red beer.

Stage 19 | July 22

Flat | 189km

Castelnau-Magnoac to Cahors

The last chance for a breakaway, or will the sprinter’s teams sour their chances?

Stage 20 | July 23

Time Trial | 40km

Lacapelle Marival to Rocamadour

A big test for the riders contending for the final Podium in Paris, where big time gaps and upsets can occur. Will anyone be missing in action this year?

Stage 21 | July 24

Flat | 112km

Paris La Défense Arena to Paris Champs-Elysées

Prior to the arrival and finish of the men’s Tour de France to Paris, the inaugural women’s Tour de France Femmes will start. Why not enjoy it with Fred’s – the beer brewed by the women of Bright Brewery in honour of International Women’s Day 2022?
