Sherman Ave Reviews: Brew Bike
It’s obvious that this year’s hottest trend in campus cuisine is food sold from bicycle carts. At Sherman Ave, one of our favorite two-wheeled meal mobiles is Brew Bike, a student-run vendor that turns our cold hard cash into cold soft coffee (NOTE: they only take cards). Brew Bike’s cold brew is a great way to start the day, but it is clear to this coffee-drinker that it is an ineffective remedy for my erectile dysfunction.
The first thing you notice about the Brew Bike is the bike’s sleek design. The cart on the front of the bike--which stores and chills coffee--features a polished wood finish and a stenciled-in logo that catches the eye. One would think such a well thought-out project would also take into account the more intimate challenges faced by certain male coffee drinkers.
Onto the coffee itself.
A spout atop the cart pours ready-made coffee that’s served in plastic cups. The cold brew has a bold, refreshing taste that’ll hit the spot for any coffee lovers. That being said, it doesn’t wake me up in all the ways that I would like it to. Initially, the server gave me too much ice and not enough sildenafil citrate--the active ingredient in Viagra--but after asking politely, they removed some ice. The bike offers cream and simple syrup so that students can take their coffee as they please.
The students running the cart were friendly for the most part, allowing me to try some of their cold brew before purchasing a cup. What they didn’t do was inform me that their cold brew would in no way help me achieve a full on hard-on. And while the $3.50 plus tax price tag seemed steep, it was, in my mind at the time, a much cheaper alternative to prescription vasodilators.
As of yet, I’ve only been able to find the Brew Bike by Tech. If you’re not looking to travel all the way north for a cup of coffee, Brew Bike may not be for you. Additionally, if you’re hoping to find a treatment for your flaccid member, I’m afraid your search isn’t over yet.
All in all, Brew Bike raises the bar for student-run businesses, though it certainly will not raise anything else. 4/5 Sherman Ave Signs
