Your camping beer

Postby kimm » Thu May 24, 2012 2:59 pm

Something to help us look forward to the weekend. What beer(s) would/do you pick up for your cooler on a long camping weekend?

Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat and Young's Double Chocolate Stout worked well on my last trip. It's great to have so many choices now in cans.

The last time I did the float trip down the Wisconsin, everybody else in the group bought PBR and I got a case of Molson Golden.

I was briefly the most popular guy on the trip. Until the Molson ran out.

I'll second the Molson tip, but I prefer Canadian.

I find any of your 'sconnie macro brews in cans are good for shoving into can coolers and sitting around the fire: High Life, Old Style, Schlitz, Blatz.

High Life, PBR if I'm feeling snobby Supper Club. Always nice to have a stash of real beer though to mix it up.

The beautiful, nostalgic Supper Club labels and ads with the 57 Ford make up for any drinking-related shortcomings.

Remember: beer is high in carbohydrates, causing your pancreas to produce the hormone, insulin. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and - most importantly - fat cells to take up glucose from the blood and store it as glycogen inside these tissues. This is what leads to the famous "beer belly" in men and "saddle bags" in women.

Suggestion: In order to stay lean, limit your consumption of carbohydrates. You want to alter your consciousness with ethyl alcohol? Try vodka and water.

And please -- drink responsibly.

Dave's BrewFarm is my go-to canned beer for just about any occasion. I'm picking up some later today for my sister's Memorial Day boating excursion out at Yellowstone SP.

I also like Oskar's Blues Little Yella Pils, Capital US Pale, anything from Keweenaw, and I'm really digging the Sixpoint beers that have just rolled out here. Tallgrass Oasis ESB is tasty too, but a little high octane for having more than a couple.

I think Meade is trying to get excommunicated from Wisconsin.

You know what I'd drink? Two beers at one time.

Genesee beer retrieved from the below-waterline trout stream stash from the previous year's passage. High Peaks area, New York state. Good enough to drink.
