Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill allowing "beer bikes" to operate on city streets.

The governor's office tweeted a photo of Brown signing the bill on a beer bike in Sacramento Sunday with his wife, Anne Gust Brown, and their two dogs before going on a ride.

Also on board was Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat who crafted the bill to create a vehicle safety standard for bike buses that allow up to 15 people to pedal at once.

Brown previously signed bills legalizing beer tasting and wine tasting at farmers markets.
