Great article. Although it was not unthinkable to add an empty can of Pabst Blue Ribbon to your pack, it was definitely unthinkable to buy PBR in the first place! Were they out of beer?Mar 24, 2009 at 5:33 pm #1488562

A great read, and at least they weren't drinking Piels Light…Mar 25, 2009 at 9:20 am #1488687
Thanks for the monocle tip. I'll have to try that when I wear my contacts. I have several pair of old reading glasses I can scavenge. Would work great for map and menu reading, too.Mar 27, 2009 at 5:35 pm #1489304

I won't try and defend myself on that one. I will say, however, that a warm Pabst followed by a backpacking trip makes the Odells IPA taste all the better upon return! (Besides, we WERE in Utah. A guy only has so many options…)
Glad ya'll enjoyed the article.

Come on admit it. PBR is everyones guilty pleasure. The kind of beer that creates a necessity for a cozy (to cover the label). There are lots of good brews local to Utah though. Squatters, Uintas, Red Rock, and i think Desert Edge Breweries. Great article. Thank you for adding to the list of little alternatives that allow us to ditch gear and enjoy living like animals. :)Mar 27, 2009 at 8:39 pm #1489334

If one more person puts down PBR this thread is going to get ugly! ;)
Seriously, I love fine beer but for an over the counter generic beer PBR rules!
When I go out west I pick up a 12 pack of Tecate.
Narragansett is now available at the local packie as well.

I completely agree about the PBR or as it's known in these northern lands, "peeber". Boddy, fantastic article. Very insightful, great imagery, and descriptive writing. …makes a guy really want to dawn a pack and go for a nice long (and comfortable) hike. Can't wait to read your next article!Jun 3, 2009 at 9:14 am #1505524

A micro light weighing less than 1 ounce can go a long way! It’s saved my life more than once while needing to look for things in my pack in the middle of the night.
