Just as the best inventions come from necessity, so the best beers  
are to be found when you really need them.

Hiking a "fourteener" early in the morning, coming down off the peak  
at 2 or 3 PM, then driving into Boulder CO and downing 1 or more  
liters of locally brewed Hefeweizen (after the shared Grolsch at the  
peak) at Oasis Brewery (since closed it seems) helps you appreciate  
all them there B vitamins and other goodies.

Actually the only way I ever find myself drinking alcohol of any sort  
and really appreciating it is after heavy physical exertion or  
labor.  The nutrients help me feel better and the muscle pain is
