Depends on local availability of good IPA.
Self-limiting as a diabetic due to carb load. 2 are OK but more will increase blood glucose beyond normal levels.

In these cool/cold temps, I do miss a hot buttered rum as a core temp warmer.
Sugar-free of course.

A good single malt will also suffice.

Generally, a non-sweet red wine is best as no refrigeration (only have the smallest fridge in our Scamp) needed and red wine has multitudes of health benefits and will lower fasting BG levels if a glass or two are imbibed after dinner.

So Bat Dude's $.02 worth

Same problem hooked on insulin so I limit the beers. I'm partial towards dark beers and stouts. Usually just one.

We will have a case of Chardonnay sitting there and people will ask "Are you going to drink all of that?"
We answer "probably not, we just hate to run out"
Never can tell when company will show up.

An Abita Turbo Dog or Shiner Bock goes good with whatever has been burned on the grill.

Nothing like sitting in the lawn chair with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine watching the raccoons raid the trash can in the evening.

Use a blowgun with frozen peas to torment them. The evidence thaws out and they eat it. The park ranger has no case.

I once went to Canada and saw a sign that read "Drink Canada Dry". I tried but came no where close.

None really, I have a few beers a year as a social setting type thing but I am not a big beer fan.

I would much prefer some Mojitos, tequila sunrise or other fancy drink.

Never wine gives me an instant headache

Yes, Glenn, I've had Sol a couple of times and enjoyed it. It's ok as long as it's not old (it can go skunky fast in those clear bottles). Pacifico is another decent Mex beer IMO.

I actually drink more wine than beer. Probably 5 or 6 bottles of Barefoot Red Moscato, and 2-3 bottles of Stone Hill Concord, in a year's time. Just a half-glass at a time. For the antioxidants, of course.

For some trips we will bring a 20l corney keg of home brew run to the beer tap you can see just to the left of the door. Pulling a fresh pint after a day on the bike trails, nothing better!

I've never had an issue with too much. Too little on the other hand, I understood could be a problem?

Problem Solved. Any questions?

Time to update the Beer Supply formula due to the effect of the aluminum tariff.


f = Your usual number of beers drank per day

g = Number of sports games expected to be viewed on TV

h = Distance to restroom

k = Size of beer cooler

L = Location of nearest liquor store for re-supply

T = Effect on price of beer due to the tariff on aluminum

m = Number of “friends” who may be expected to drop by for a cool one

w = Temperature degree-days

Double the answer for safety reasons and then add 144.

I'm all about being weight-conscious, at least for the camper. To that end, whiskey is much more weight- and space-efficient than beer. Black tank doesn't fill as quickly either. ;-)

I only drink while out camping if the wife's kids and grand-kids come out with us. Otherwise I don't find it necessary, but the stuff is always there if the access is necessary. I hate petty family confrontations.
