Time to work up a thirst for beer. And pedaling.

Bicycle-themed craft-beer hangout the HandleBar, which I previewed earlier this month, opened its doors at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The craft beer tavern, located in the former Crazy Horse spot at 1519 W. Main St., starts its regular hours today: 11 a.m. to close.

If Boise truly is a bicycle town, the HandleBar is geared for it. The place teems with bike-themed decor. It also includes bicycle workstands and tools for bike-mechanic customers. Most important, the HandleBar offers 25 rotating beer taps and five wine taps.

Bonus: You can lock up your bike inside the bar overnight at one of the 25 bicycle parking spots.

Congratulations to owner Ezra Jackson. I hope to ride a wheelie through the place soon. (OK, maybe I’ll walk my bike.)
