    Nice and concentrated, but dangerous for flamers in the fire.

    We usually have light beer. Sure, its heavy and we usually don't drink it on the ascent. But once walking a ridge, that backpack starts to weigh a lot less.
    The chairlift is a free rollercoaster!

    Beer is a horrible weight/intoxication ratio, I've never even tried this.

    Assuming this is real backpacking and not screwing around in the woods running around on boomers, I think weed is obviously the best choice. Far less physical impact the next day... decent chance of sleeping through the night uninterrupted.

    Then smoke again when you first wake up and you won't mind skipping the water bottle shower.

    How many birds can you kill with one "stone"?

    TL;DR ... weed is for hiking, bring a few bourbon nips and some Unisom if sleep isn't your thing on the natural.

    Serious answer ... if you can muster sobriety for 48 hours, you're a god among men.

    Only a hip flask with whiskey or brandy, for those cold nights after a rewarding jaunt.
