How much beer do you need for camping?

In light of (no pun intended) the ongoing thread on flashlights, I thought it would be Interesing to pose a similar question. So, all you lovers of the malted barley beverages, how much do you need for a weekend camping trip, or for a week in the boonies?

In the Spring & Fall ( Cool weather) we figure a 12 Pak of Leines per day per person.
In the summer ( Warm weather ) we figure an 18 Pak of Leines per day per person.

We also carry along a 5 Ltr box of burgundy wine , a 1/2 Ltr
each of brandy , rum , gin , vodka , whiskey , plus 1 ltr each of sherry & port wine.

These amounts may seem excessive but we live in Wisconsin and often camp with other couples from the area.

Beef and barley makes for a good soup, and it goes good with a nice chocolate malt.
Sounds good for lunch tomorrow, thanks!

We do more wine than beer. Usually a box of red but sometimes bottles. We do travel with a bottle of scotch, nice in the summer with ice. Mike

ZERO, I really enjoy being sober!
But I really love the taste of beer also.
I drink 0.5 to quench the need.

I'm typically a a one beer a day guy, sometime two if the spirit moves me so I don't need a whole lot. Whatever I take has to be in cans so I typically take an average 5% microbrew like maybe New Belgium 1554 or Avery Ellie's Brown Ale. If space is at a premium, sometimes I take Old Chub which is an 8% scotch ale and goes further.

In the summer I host some camp outs for a Meetup group. Beer and wine are always available and about 50% of the group will enjoy sitting around the campfire smoking pot. I've never had a problem with someone getting too loaded on either substance or causing problems.

I can’t stand either the smell or taste of it. Besides isn’t 81 too young to drink alcoholic beverages?

I never smoked pot in my life or tried any other illegal mood altering substance for that matter.
I quit drinking alcohol in 1985 and haven't has a drink since
I quit smoking cigars on Nov 18th , 2017
Dear God do I miss a good cigar.
Alcohol was easy , Cigars are much harder , at least for me.

Its never a problem if you're too loaded to see it.
!
"Wine tasting" at fiberglass gatherings east of the Rockies was non-existent until just a few years ago.

Kept to a single event at a gathering for an hour or two is one thing, but if it continues growing to the point you describe... we won't be missed.

2 or 3 beers during a 3 week camping trip is plenty for me. Might be real beer, might be the non-alcoholic variety. Sometimes in hot weather a somewhat bitter drink quenches the thirst.

A riddle: what kind of beer do flashaholics prefer? Answer: any light beer! (pun definitely intended). Actually I only care that it has low IBUs. No IPA for me!

You'd like Sol then ( Spanish for sun? ). It only resembles beer, in colour. No IBUs, no flavour.
