I've heard great things about the Racer 5. Does Argonaut have it?


Medic - If you mention Heady Topper one more time, then you are required to bring a bomber of it back next time you are in the Northeastern region. I don't care if you have to make an out of your way side trip to Waterbury. Those are Bean 2's terms.

I can't believe I'm posting in the beer thread (because I don't like beer), but here goes....hey Idiot 2, oops -- I mean -- Bean 2 -- how much is that beer worth to you? I'll be in VT next month.

I understand that you need to stop blabbing about this beer that only you have tried. Does the pedestal belong to the beer or to you? Maybe when you come back to Colorado and we go on that hike, you can bring some along. I promise that I deserve it.

Idiot 2? You turkey.
Sure, please grab some of these tallboys and expect to be paid back commensurately with good ol' Jager, 7up, or whatever floats your boat.
It's worth flexing my calves to ride my bike to wherever you are.

I will gladly accept a 4-pack of Heady for rent for your bed and bike. And I still haven't touched the Deschutes Abyss 2011 Reserve in my fridge... it's on thin ice, however.

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten you. I'll be grabbing some next time I'm up in Vermont.

You turkey? That's the best you can come back with?! Bottoms up, boy, and then come back with something better. I'm disappointed.

What do you expect from a pod of cloned legumes?

I think I will go to the liquor store and buy some beer. I feel like a brown ale. Any suggestions?

The Man and I did a bit of our own little private beer tour over the weekend at home (partaking of the "build your own 6-pak" option for some of it) ... in order of consumption (some of which was merely splitting a 12-oz. bottle):

- Boulevard Single Wide IPA - 5.7%ABV (initially, the aroma was much more than the taste, but as we went along, it was better the more you drank)
- Schmaltz Brewing Hebrew Dry Hopped Session Ale - Genesis 15th Anniversary (pretty darned tasty, but I've liked all the Hebrew I've tasted prior)
- Crispin Hard Apple Cider - The Saint 6.9%ABV - Bomber (mirky, but tasty and a bit more punch than most 5% ciders)
- Stone Levitation Ale - 4.4%ABV (tons of flavor)
- Blue Dawg Brewery Wild Blue Blueberry Lager - 8%ABV (sort of like nehi grape soda, but blueberry, with less carbonation and very sweet and very blue)
- Boulevard Nutcracker Ale (Seasonal) - 7.8%ABV (much better than their IPA above; lighter mouth feel than most spiced ales ... The Man advises, due to the name, "don't drink it on a balance beam")
- Widmer Brothers Brewing Brrrr Ale - 7.2%ABV (pretty tasty)
- Cumbre Elevation IPA - 7.2%ABV THANK YOU MATT! (very nice ... 100 IBU ... it's hoppy .. need I say more)
- Dry Dock Double IPA - 9%ABV - Bomber (very yummy ... have had it there on tap before)
- Ska Brewing Modus Hoperandi 6.8%ABV (what can I say ... it's my go to beer in a can)
- Upslope Christmas Ale - 8.2%ABV (tall boy ... comes in a 4-pak ... $11.99 at King Soopers ... get some)

Also stopped by The Bull-n-Bush on Friday evening for dinner (the kitchen is finally open again). Had a couple of the goblets of the Marriage Golden Am-Belgo IPA 9%ABV ... mighty nice.

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM
