We had myself and one chica friend on my raft for the grand, and our beer supply plan worked out perfect-

6 beers/person/day
1/6 of a handle of hard alc/day
2 bags of wine (= 3 majorly drunk wine days)

And then we got to the put-in and bought 3 cases of safety beer.

We had exactly a six-pack at the take out to share!
Take into account that some days you will be hiking/running bigger stuff/hungover and won't drink as much... but on the flipside some days you will be doing a layover/flatwater/partying after big rapids.

Quoted for truth. Happy Camper IPA is one the finest canned beers around. that, and the Modus Hoperandi from Ska are my favorites.

Praise the canned microbrew revolution! We are blessed with so many great canned beers these days. As the Dales can says- PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. We definitely recycle too!

Nobody has mentioned kegs? The past 2 MFS trips we've done have been with kegs - we did 3 kegs on our trip last summer with a jockey box strapped to the frame. Environmentally friendly draft beer on the river, no trash, no cans, no hassle, just tasty ice-cold beer. (Most of the time, we'll de-rig and stow the system for the major rapids.)

We got lucky and got a Grand permit for this September and are planning on kegs again. Anybody have any experience with kegs on the Grand? Are the rangers cool if you roll up with 8 kegs and an on-river kegerator system complete with redundant backup parts and emergency taps?

Well, I'm back into civilization (Las Vegas = Hell, but Red Rocks = climbing heaven and a relief from the chaos). 25 days on the river, took out at Pierce Ferry yesterday.

Our boat had 3 people (lightweights) and 4 beers per person per day, and about 5 boxes of wine. We ended up with at least 2 cases of PBR left, and a case or so of good beer. I guess we discovered that we'd rather just row and look at the scenery and have energy for good hikes instead of being wasted by noon, like most of our other companions. I enjoy beer, but I'm glad I went for quality instead of quantity. Everyone likes to have a good time once in a while, but i got sick of dealing with drunk people by about day 15. (whisperings of mutiny, defecting, and the renaming of my duckie, the Red October). The canyon itself was enough entertainment for me and I'm hooked on this whole boating thing. So if anyone wants to take a scantily clad swedish gal on a river trip, I'm game! (Ok, i'm really Dutch but... close enough.)
