I found a small bottle of champagne in the register (ammo can) on top of Mt langley. I also stumbled across a case of Budweiser in a dry streambed near the leanto on South baldface. It was undrinkable though. Of course, Bud is undrinkable even if it is cold, and fresh.

Nothing to do with image. I don't drink it for the same reason I don't buy wine in $5 gallons. I don't like it. I drink beer for the taste, and most American lagers taste like crap.


Bud is not American anymore... I drink for the taste as well, being female and having a smaller bladder I can't consume a six pack, so I'd rather spend $10+ on a 4-pack of extra hoppy yummy craft ale and split it with a friend - they usually have higher alcohol content anyway. More taste, more buzz - fewer bathroom stops :) Plus I always strive to drink local.

My dad always took a bottle of beer on mountain trips when I was a kid. The beer usually was placed for chilling in a stream next to where we camped. On one occasion I remember him going to retrieve the beer only to find a snake had curled around the bottle. Half an hour or so later the snake had moved on, but I remember it a major event of the trip.

So, you obviously never visited MN in winter :shock: :D

I think a shot of vodka is more in order there than a cold beer LOL

Well, she carried it in her pack .. all I did was provide occasional ribbing :)

She's the angel .. me, apparently not so much :twisted:


Don't know if I can continue with the "angel" title for long... :twisted: But it was a fun day.

Gramphawk: that was probably me, too. I left a split of Chandon bubbly for some friends back in August, 2007, who were summiting two weeks after I did. They got the gift, and it was pretty perfectly chilled as well! I take a bottle to the top of all the 14ers...

For example, Russell:

BTW: it's single malt or NOTHING on my trips.

Sometimes beer, too...
