Dunno if the peak determines my beer preference, but according to this sweet flow chart, a Dale's works best for me.

+1 on Gordon's (Old C's can suck it, I'll never refer to as G'Knight). Whoever brewed that beer deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award. Any peak, anytime, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Modus, Dank, Deviant, Happy Camper and Gordon will always have a place in my pack, no matter how far the pack in. When weighing my pack, I don't take in to consideration the beer weight, just how it is.

Also, the initial sip Mtnfiend and I enjoyed of GCB's Stand Up 2x IPA after an 11 hour ascent of Kiener's was arguably the single greatest sip of beer in our young lives. I can make that claim without his consultation with confidence.

While not a coors fan, the urban myth is that the waterfall on the can is Twin Falls below Mt. Sneffels, so that seems a natural. Personally I prefer a Deviant Dales on top of El Diablo. Since I seem to be the only one responding from the western slope, shoot me over the Colorado Boy discount. It won't go to waste.
