Coffee after freezing our asses off near James Peak.







Now that is beer and climbing.

enjoying the static, grappel and a smoke on Dana...

An old chalk bag would be pretty good for a coozy as well. But great idea!

  • golf clap* to you both!

Did every draw have a beer on it? Or did you just leave a few for your follower as goals?

Bottles are a bit dicey, what you want is the 10 liter plastic mini keg.

Contemplative-what is ahead?

It's funny, I was just thinking about this. Not that that in itself is odd, but more importantly, I have been reminiscing about what may have started me on my way towards finding climbing, and beer (reverse order, though).

Back when I was a kid, my dad owned a beer distributorship in Cheyenne, Wyoming. My sister and I would get to go to work with him sometimes. And I always looked forward to it. It was such a fun place to be. It was a HUGE warehouse with palettes and palettes of beer. To me, it seemed like a football field size warehouse with stacks of beer, some of them from the ground to the ceiling. Imagine a literal "Cubert" type of playground. A great place to get lost in, play hide and seek, and of course climb up & down those palettes. Dad would also pay us to sift out damaged 6 packs, and re-package the good beers. I got to check out cool beer posters-Kathy Ireland, Alex from Stroh's. The awesome beer signs that lit our basement-I see some of them in movies, like the neon Schlitz sign is often in the dive bar, down and out, type movie scene. How could this not root itself in my subconscious eternally? Climbing and Beer (and a side-love for office supplies). Yes!

So of course, once I was older, I did like beer. My Dad's distributorship sold pretty bad beer (though who would have known at the time that Pabst would make a comeback and be retro?). Luckily, living in Fort Collins, it is a Microbrew hub. High school keggers were of New Belgium Fat Tire, O'dells 90 shillings, Easy Street Wheat, yuuummmm. So post college, the like of beer had already been established. and then came the next love of my life. I found I fit in with climbing-it seemed like a natural continuation of gymnastics & dance that my older body could deal with. The people I met were creative and authentic thinkers and do-ers. Climbing had just the right type of excitement that I had always sought, but a lot less destructive!

I attribute the time spent climbing around on beer palettes as being a major contributing factor to what I enjoy today: Climbing & Beer. -Cheers, and thanks for posting your new site, John!!!!

Any first beer and climbing calendar must have as its cover, the classic John Sherman with beer and flip flops photo. I'm sure we would get hundreds of action submissions for each month.

John,

If you click on an article and scroll to the bottom you'll see an area where you can "Leave a Reply", this is essentially posting comments. I'm currently working on getting a facebook-login so visitors don't have to type in their information when they visit the site - and I should have that soon! (note that as it stands currently, you should only have to enter your information once - the site should remember you when you return.)

Hope that helps!

Best,
John

Niki,

I love the idea... I'd have to tie in with some of the more popular beer and climbing information resources... let me look into this further! Any and all idea's are welcome and appreciated!

Best,
John

Sir Woodchuck,

I COULD NOT AGREE MORE! (For anyone unfamiliar with the photo...)
