After snowboarding, we had a few to many beers at the top of keystone resort. Being as drunk as we were we decided to make snow angels without topless. Unfortunately, it was a group of guys. We were too drunk to even ride down so we had to take the gondola

At the Val d'Isere ski resort in the French Alps, wearing jeans and a sweater because it was 1993. It was the highest I'd ever been and it was my first sunburn (I'm black). Beer at 8500 feet.

Alternatively, March 20 2011 at the Belly Up in Aspen, where I was co-erced into smoking before the Railroad Earth show and ended up passed out by the second set. Very embarrassed to be unconscious at a bluegrass show (I'm black). Did not spill my beer, though.

My first time on hallucinogens at age 18, condo in Vail Colorado, whilst sipping a Breckenridge stout, I was so high that I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal lord and savior.

In California at the amazing Mt Shasta. We were living large in our hot tub, looking at this amazing mountain and drinking this amazing beer from our very own, Colorado. We had it all :)

The highest I have ever been while drinking a beer was in May 1937. I tell you, this was the first and last time I ever flew on the Hindenburg. Between the beer and the smell of hydrogen gas, I have never felt so high.

Drinking a Sunshine Wheat in Aspen at Little Annie's where I kissed my future husband for the first time. That beer hit me hard at that altitude and I was probably a little more forward than I normally would have been. Guess it worked though!!

I was drinking an Old Chub from Oskar Blues across the Rockies on an epic road trip to Vegas...once in Vegas and on the 52nd floor of our hotel suite, downing a six pack in 5 minutes hit me like a brick.

A small bottle of Chivas Regal from the duty free shop on my way back from Paris and 19 years old. Had a much larger one with me as well but that was a gift.

Hip tip for the modern cheap drunkard, you can actually bring as much hard liquor as you want on a plane as long as it's divided into 3oz or less travel shampoo containers. Totally solid for international flights or domestic. Now that I think about it, maybe I'll just start carrying those around in general.

I have been to the sweet paradise of heaven while drinking beer. From the lowliest NatiLight that's been rolling around the trunk of my car hot and skunky from sophomore year of college to the strongest of brews poured straight from the fermenting tank, I have been transported to a glorious plane of enlightenment with each bubbly drop of suds. Never, have I tasted a beer that I have not loved wholly for giving the most wonderful gift of inebriation.

Myself and about 100 other guests consumed many beers(proof is in the bar tab) while celebrating my wedding at 10,234 feet at Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge

My husband and I got married at the 1994 Vegas Greatful Dead shows, it was Friday-Sunday run and most folks had planned to leave during the second set on Sunday to pack up at the hotel before heading back to the airport...truth be told it was our plan to leave early too, but we had planned ahead in case there was something epic ahead and had our bags packed an in the car.

Good thing that we did because when the Dead ripped into Terrapin I knew there was no way we were leaving early. One of our guests had brewed beer for us as a wedding gift and I still to this day remember running through the airport with a huge backpack on and each of us carrying two six packs of Chief's home brew while they were calling our names out over the loudspeaker. We got to the gate with seconds to spare and plopped ourselves down in our seats and cracked the best tasting home brew I had ever tasted before the plane even took off.

White wine & OJ, any flight, any time of day (it looks inconspicuous in that little plastic cup!). Middle seat in the back row on a crowded flight would be the most memorable time I partook.

Standing in the Suicide Forest of Japan drinking Japanese Beer...not thinking about suicide mind you, just being morbidly curious.

Drinking a Latvian pilsner on a Latvian flight. Was actually tasty for knowing nothing except the beer type.
