When Dale Katechis is on a three-hour bike ride he has one thing on his mind: a cold beer. Beer and mountain biking may seem like an unlikely pairing. But for Mr. Katechis, the founder of Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont, Colo., they are integral parts of his company's culture.

Dale Katechis rides with some of his employees and friends on a mountain bike trail in Hall Ranch in Lyons, CO.
On Tuesday nights, employees gather for group mountain bike rides that might last 3½ hours, followed by beer and food at one of the three nearby restaurants he owns. "We ride and race year round," he says. "Even in the snow."
