your weight in beer + 1 case is the barometer for non-Mormons. last trip for me it was around day 10 that I realized I had not had a single sip of water.

Forget the beer. All you need is the largest cooler possible loaded w/solid ice (once had a grand trip that had ice till day 15 in the heat of the summer just for this purpose). Squeeze 150 or so limes (makes a gal or so), freeze it in qt bags and layer it w/the solid ice. Purchase at least 10 liters of Patron tequila or your favorite 100% agave and 5 liters of Cointreau. Designate yourself as the cooler czar (you do not want some low life to dip into the ice for their ice tea). Every evening chip out some ice, add together the lime juice, patron, and cointreau and sit back and enjoy a wonderful evening.

Bring 3 or 4 of cases of PBR just in case (god forbid) you run out of tequila. Better to be safe than sorry eh?

I really like the True Blonde Ale from Ska Brewery in Durango for drinking in the heat/sunshine. It's real mellow so you can still get hammered drunk, but has some flavor.

Always bring at least a 30 rack of PBR. It's a must

In June, we brought the recommended 10 beers per person per day, plus a bottle of rum, one of tequila, one of bailey's and 2 bottles of whiskey for 3 people. Granted we shared the cocktails among the whole group, but we still ran out by day 16 of 19, even after we started rationing. Fortunately, the 2 people who had plenty only made everyone else do mildly humiliating tricks for beer.

The point is- get all the alcohol you think you will need, then get two more cases of beer- you can always take them home afterward- or get smashed at the take-out.

OK OK good point. Just add a case of Texas Pride (I think they still make that mouth wash) per day and Mike's 8% lemonade for the weak hearted (I get to keep the real stuff) and you will be all set!
