    Beer in your bag

    so we go on some night rides. I have been carrying beers in my bag pockets, but wondering if anyone has used a camelback type bladder for actually carrying beer.

    is it not worth the PITA of cleaning it? Any ideas

    It is not worth it, plus the bladder won't keep the beer under pressure to maintain carbonation. Just carry cans, chug 'em, crush 'em and stuff 'em (back into our pack).

    I have heard of people filling the bladder with ice and dropping bottles or cans in

    You will never be able to clean it all out, I had a buddy who tired to do it, and it worked for the night but it was never the same after haha.

    Well, I prefer the more eloquent solution we employed last year in Moab

    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    Cans, not bottles, bottle caps will scrape at the bladder, I do this all the time 1 can and ice water= cold water, and a beer for the end of the ride.

    you dont have to put the beer can in the bladder, just next to the bladder in the sleeve that it fits into. I carry bottles of homebrew all the time.

    mixed drinks are the thing to do in bladders. otherwise cans in packs near ice filled bladders will stay cool for a surprisingly long time.

    Two suggestions:

    1. Put beer bottle in camelbak, then some ice, then water. Enjoy beer when ready.
    2. (Have actually done this - last week in fact): Take a freezer bag and two cold beers. Wrap one beer in a plastic bag, but both beers in the freezer bag and add ice. Get rid of the air in the bag, seal, and stuff in camelbak. Blam-o - cold beers, cold melty water on your back on the hot day, win win win.

    # 2 in action:

    ok, so you guys do what I do. I just try to stuff as many in the bag as possible.

    to the guy with the beer in the bottle holder, that **** doesnt get shaken like crazy there?

    Beer and camelbak are not a good combo unless you plan to clean it after every ride. I'd rather prefer Highdell's solution.

    Moab + beer in the bottle holder = warm shaken beer. Doesn't matter because it was hilarious.

    That's why the second bottle is wrapped. Cinch down the pack to restrict movement and it's all good.

    just get a camelback with storage enough for some beer cans, on our dirtbikeswe use MSR roost packs...holds 3 cans. If it's hot out freeze them first...half way thru the day I'm ready for a beer and it's thawed and icy cold!

    Beer on your Bike? What are you, some kind of unrefined heathen?

    Try wine instead, boxed wine to be exact. The bag is nearly indestructible and you can actually carry enough to catch a buzz.

    I usually carry my beer bottle in Stubby coolers, while riding my bike. I personally feel the coolness remains for long time even till I reach my destination.

    I started carrying beers with me over summer for a mid ride drink. Then I switched to bourbon and coke. I get awesome at riding after drinking a few of those

    I actually got a 6 pack cooler that I can fit like 8 cans and 2 packs of ice (fits right in my backpack). I carry the beer for my buddies and they bring the pump and water and whatnot. Team work = cold beer at the end of a ride!

    its just not worth it. putting anything but h2o in a hydration pack is just asking for problems later on.

    Maybe I'm over-thinking this but....

    In order to get home, you must get back to the vehicle....so why not leave the beer in a cooler...in the vehicle....you get done your ride, ahh, there's a cold beer..how sweet.

    I couldn't see drinking a beer mid-ride so why lug it along?
