So in my 10 years of riding I have made many friends, shared many stories, shared many beers, shared many shots of god knows what and many hits off the peace pipe.

I'd like to see what you guys/gals sip on to loosen up.

Me. I keep a flask of crown royal and a few small $2 fireball shots. And tums. Lol

P.S. DO NOT DRINK TOO MUCH WHILE SNOWBOARDING. :dizzy:

I rarely drink anymore, it's just not as fun as it used to be :dunno:
But when I do..
I prefer Crown, Fireball, and Peppermint Snapps =)

I'm not a big beer guy, I typically just get Blue moon or Boulevard from tap at a bar, I hate cans and bottles.
I hit the pipe every once in a while and maybe once or twice a year I'll do some harder stuff.

I used to be pretty fucked up when I was younger, no regrets though.. I had a blast.

On the hill: Beer at most, usually I don't drink until I'm done. I'm one of those weirdos that takes his riding seriously...

Off the hill:
1) Beer - I love beer, Hefewisen or IPAs mostly, but also good old Kokanee, Keiths, Grasshopper, even Canadian is good sometimes

2) Vodka is my choice of spirit. I like vodka and water, or a traditional vodka or gin martini.

3) Sometimes wine but usually only reisling or gewürztraminer whites.

4) Occasionally I like sipping cognac, OCCASIONALY!!!

normally flask of fireball, i think the hot cinnamon works good with the cold, and the occasionally pack full of beer if i'm riding with some friends.

I like that apple pie shine but it really does drink like water so I find I have to bring most of a jar and it usually gets passed around and finished....

Otherwise good beer. Pales and IPAs my favorite. I'll drink alot of Porters and Stouts in the winter as well.

Favorite breweries:

Sierra Nevada
Stone
Samuel Smiths
Bear Republic
Green Flash

That "apple pie" looks like something I could like :) looks very sweet.
I only drink when we're done with riding. Too much speed, slopes too crowded to have a dizzy head.
On cold days: glogg, hot wine punch, Irish coffee, or rose hip tea with plum schnaps. On warmer spring days it's beer.

Yeah I'm not big on drinking while riding but there is nothing like "earning" that first drink after a full day.

I'm a good beer and bourbon guy. Mostly IPAs though I have been trying to get into some other styles. Hate Belgians though.

Snoklinger have you seen the Green Flash Green Bullet in your parts? It's pretty damn delicious.. Triple IPA they put out for their anniversary. When up in VT a Heady Topper is the perfect finish to the day.

I'll have to look for that Bullet!

I agree I hate Belgians. I quit drinking Budweiser because it tastes and smells like bananas to me. Every Belgian is like that but concentrated to me, just smells like a fruit salad... My best buddy loves them, what can ya do.

On the hill: Gatorade. If I had friends to snowboard with,* I'd probably do something alcoholic, but I don't like drinking by myself while doing something athletic.

Off the hill: depends on my mood . . .
Vodka + club soda
Beer - usually IPA's in the summer and thick dark stouts and porters in the winter

*I do have friends! :laugh: Just none that snowboard.

I'm afraid if I drank on the hill I'd have the courage to try something I could never do. After shredding I have a shot or two of Jameson or Pendleton whiskey and wash it down with a Deschutes Red Chair at the bar, or whatever was left in my fridge gets drank in the parking lot. Too much good beer in Bend to pick just one.

SO can relate to this
I also don't really drink much especially since I'm usually riding/taking my kids to the hills. I may have a beer or two with a buddy depending on who I'm riding with and time of day.

Glogg, yes! Grew up with it, no cold day is ever complete without a cup.

Off the hill Laphroaig sherry cask is the poison of choice.
:thumbsup:
Prost!

Had the Green Flash Imperial IPA (9.3%) and the Green Flash West Coast IPA last night. Both fantastic! Looking forward to the Green Bullet when I can find it.
