    I was being a bit generous with the "high remote" bit but I really do enjoy a beer at the top of a climb. The best place IMO. Mostly Mt Diablo park and summer hikes and winter skiing in the Tahoe region. Whitney is probably a bit much since the altitude will probably keep you from "needing" a beer. Good luck on Whitney and remember hydration and aclimization are your two best friends.

    Watching sports or TV mostly. Sitting on the patio reading a good book or doing yard work/cleaning. Or, lets be honest, most of the time I'm drinking a beer I'm here on Beer Advocate.

    Still, your avatar is one of my favorites. I wasn't trying to state that as some humble brag, we don't have mountains around here, so I often find myself daydreaming about them. I can't even find a hill that takes longer than 5 minutes to ride up.

    It'll be my first trip into California too, so I'm equally excited to try some new beers. If I bring a summit beer, it'll presumably be something light and coffee related. A summit beer is something I've joked about bringing on my past few Colorado trips, but never took that extra step. I did bring a couple cold cans of SN Pale Ale on a waterfall hike that turned out wonderful. Nature and beer blends together extremely well, at least for me.

    The only part of my load out I have firmed up is my hydration setup: 3L bladder with a Katadyn bottle for filtration, and a SmartWater bottle full of drink mix. I've gotten wrapped up with getting into a hike and paid the price due to a lack of nutrition and water. Not a mistake I'd make again.

    If you ever do hike Storm King in the Hudson Valley you won't have to bring anything- we already have a beer for that. :sunglasses:

    Most importantly, relaxing, which may be tied in with any of the following: cooking, talking with friends and family, playing low-energy games (think corn hole), perusing the internet (mostly BA), people watching (at bars and breweries) or just watching the scenery. Almost all tied to beer and music.

    Probably too far for you guys but.... Sly Fox Brewery has an annual Can Jam Music Festival in September with a can jam tournament, live bands, beer, food, etc... no admission fees or tickets, just show up and pay for drink/food as you go.

    Definitely BBQ, hang out outside on a nice warm evening, listen to music, play a card game, or just chill and reflect on this wonderful life in which we have the privilege to sip on fine beer.

    Great topic. I really enjoy cracking a cold one while making dinner. Smoking some BBQ or sitting by a outdoor fire is great too. Classic country music is a must for this type of night at our house.

    cant believe nobody said jamming yet. the experience of playing some drums/guitar with some buddies is definitely amplified by cracking a beer or two, no pun intended

    I enjoy listening to the music of my youth (especially Procol Harum, Steely Dan, Pilgrum, and the 'fab four').
    A few brews and my 'old fart' music does wonders for helping to relax my head.:sunglasses:
