Well, on the upside, you don't need to carry any water :D

And did I spot some Vitamin R, aka Raaainieeeeeer Beeeeerrr? No, upon closer inspection it appears to be Rainier ale, the green death. But a good way to go...

I'm probably asking for abuse, but Budweiser does fuel some good outings for me.

Four cold ones personally delivered to the summit, perfectly chilled overnight, with card, by folks I'd never met. Can you doubt the existence of Angels?

I usually do not drink beer, but last summer discovered that it's got a very good balance of water and carbs after a long day in the hills. The way I discovered this was that a buddy of mine (who happens to be a lunatic, but in a good way) brought a mini-keg along on a Presidential Traverse.
We tapped it on Franklin Peak, and just as we were finishing it, another buddy met us with ice cream sandwiches in an insulated bag full of dry ice. That was a good day.

You can see the minikeg in this shot, just after we emptied it. The guy with the flag (it was July 4th) brought up the ice cream in the aluminum-lined bag he's holding. Though the keg was dry, we had some extra beer in cans and saved one for him.

For as much as I love beer, I actually do not enjoy it much after a long hard day. I'm usually way too dehydrated.

I once found a can of beer stashed in a creek after a week of slogging through muddy valley in White Mountains of New Hampshire - it was great! Another time my bf and I were on a short weekend backpack and at the end of a long day got to our shelter to find 4 guys who each carried up a case of beer (24ct.) and 5-10lbs of ice from the other side of the trail (2 miles from the parking lot). It was nice - we had cold beer all night long and even for breakfast!

Along those lines...

My buddies and I have a favorite back country spot in Montana. We go there enough to warrant stashing extra bottles of our favorite (and some not so favorite) drinks under a large boulder.

We've never stashed beer though. It's always thoroughly consumed.

After a full year it's amazing how you forget what's been stashed, and finding it again is always a treat.

On one particular outing we recovered whiskey, jager and some rather nasty tequila. That night was a total shit show.
