So I wanted to know what everyones thoughts were on which prime canned beers they will be bringing to roo and in what portion. All premium craft brews or will the be some PBR's in your cooler to help ease the cost? I have a local distribution hub that sells beer on the cheap if the box is damaged but what you find is luck of the draw. I plan on checking it out over the next few weeks and cherry pick any quality cans, but Ill still take a case of PBR for $14 said and done. Below are the gold winners from the AmerCAN canned beer awards this year. Can find more info/results here www.craftcans.com/.
American Pale Ales : Sweet As Pacific Ale (Good Life Brewing Company) English Pale Ales : ESB Special Ale (Ska Brewing Company) Wheats\Hefeweizens: Bottom Up (Revolution Brewing Company) Porters\Stouts : Zonker Stout (Snake River Brewery) Ambers & Browns : Sunset Amber (Grand Canyon Brewing Company) Golds\Blondes\ect : Sunbru (Four Peaks Brewery) Fruit\Veg Spiced : Hell or High Watermelon (21st Amendment Brewery) Specialty Beers : Cherny Bock (Bohemian Brewery) IPA's : Hop Notch (Uinta Brewing Company)
This year, I'm bringing a couple cases of Yuengling for daytime, and a few 6 packs from our local breweries for the evenings and to trade in camp. Last year I brought almost all craft beer, and though it was delicious, it become tedious after four straight days.

I am spending way too much and traveling too far to get there and drink PBR. No offense to PBR but no thanks.
Me and my gf gunna just do a lot of local 6 packs. The make up will be something like my favorite brews from Eddyline, some from the Dillon Dam Brewery, Avery, and we probably can't leave Colorado without getting some Sunshine from new belgium but that these days is getting pretty far from the term 'craft beer'.
EDIT: And not talking all heavy craft beers. Eddyline makes an awesome boater beer for the day time.

I live in philly which has made me a beer snob. I'm spending two days in asheville prior to roo and plan on picking up some crafts there before hitting the farm. Any recommendations? Recently found Sculpin IPA in cans that I bought with the intention of taking to Roo, but they'll be drank before then for sure
Gotta roll with some plain old American light beer as the majority with some craft to mix it up. Can't do heavy IPAs all weekend. It's just too much.
It's always a good idea to bring some crap beer anyway (Milwaukee's Best is my go-to), to mix in with good beer. I usually stash 3 or 4 cans in my backpack each time I go in to Centeroo, and if I get caught and I am forced to get rid of them, no big deal. It's Beast. The other option is to chug them outside the gate in the event you are caught being sneaky, and the crap beer is easier to chug. It's a win-win.

Say you are caught at the gate. Can you drink a beer or two there without being immediately sent to the back, or do you lose your spot? I could see myself chugging one and tossing a couple to people still in line, but I wouldn't want to chug 3 or 4 or have to wait again. In the past, I've sneaked one in on my person, being careful which volunteer I let check me, but 2-3 would be nice.
