Guiness is not beer. Guiness transcends beer.

But how much to bring? I think I can gauge how much my husband can drink over the course of a week, but how much extra will should we bring to share with all our new found friends??
I am sure the more the better, but a rough idea would be greatly appreciated. Also, are their good places in Reno to stock up on alcohol? We will be driving from St. Louis and I don't want to carry the weight of the alcohol and water in the truck for the entire journey (very bad gas mileage!)

They had ALL the booze.

I'm wondering, though, if there are any logistical issues above and beyond transporting the keg. Are they difficult to cool? Do they blow up if left in the sun? Are you even allowed to carry them across state lines? If anyone has experience, please speak up.

all the canadians I know bring a rich dark beer in glass bottles - even after they know better - aka have been to the playa before.
CANS - are the way to go - crushable & they can go to recycle camp - no tricky trash - and while roaming a crushed can is easier to pocket.
Also LIGHT BEER - nice watery mexican or american beer is great in the heat & less dehydrating than thick ales - if you really like to drink alot.
so we drink TECATE - because you can get a 30 pack for $17 at Costco - and they come in a box that stacks really well - we brought 6 cases - donated 3.
I've heard that Heineken has cans if you like it & want to pay that much.
Japanese canned beer is good - but the cans are heavier & hard to crush - but you'll probably have a mallet around . . .
I've heard that the general rule with liquor is that the more extraneous stuff it has floating in it -i.e. the darker it is- the more vicious the potential hangover.
