Nowadays even pickles come in plastic jars. Thanks Bob.

As for the Canpagne, those Frenchies have the name Champagne sealed up, and they ain't aboard canning it.....but the word Canpagne tossed on California sparkling wine? Someone is gonna get rich.

True, nobody's going to smack that glass dildo engorged with mass-produced froth out of your mouth. The question is whether you understand the consequences of broken bottles on the ground for you, your campmates, visitors, DPW, or whoever else gets it in the foot, hand or tire tread picking up after you or whomever you "gift" a glass-bottled beer. When DPW gets it, weeks after you pranced off in search of your next rave festicle, the rain or the water trucks will have cemented those two or three hundred shards of cheap defective glass in the clay of the playa. Then picture your Leave-No-Trace DPW proxy prone on the desert ground in the chilly winds of late September, clothed in haphazard ripped garments and economy gloves, prying each barely-visible fragment of YOUR FUCKING BEER BOTTLE out of the fragile earth with an ersatz pig-sticker, for no other reason than to faithfully fulfill the BLM permit stipulations so you beer snobs can pose around for camp pictures next year waving bottles with some blubbery Belgian monk or a meaningless purity statement about "beechwood aging" or "sky-blue waters" on the label.



LOL. Thank you for putting it so eloquently.

Um. No. I bring about 20 gallons of water (for me for 7 days of drinking and showers). Mostly in 2.5 gallon "suitcases," but this year I really liked the crystal gyser one gallons for the bike and in the van. They are kind of square shaped and very light weight.

I only brought a case of beer this year. I usually bring two, but then bring a bunch home (or donate to DPW), budget was tight so I brought what I thought I would drink and share. It was a perfect amount. My camp has a bar hour(s), and I hit some bars on the playa while out and about, I felt I had plenty of alcohol.

You drink one of the gallons first, and then you can use it as a bottle for the rest of the event.

Nope, although high in water content it still doesn't offest the dehydrating effect of the alcohol so you do need to drink water with it.

This is true.

Beer can imbalance your electrolytes and make you pee so much that you can end up dehydrated, particularly if you don't eat enough (and the desert will make most people feel like eating less automatically) or if you eat too little salt. I've seen it happen to someone. (He lost about a day to feeling terrible, and getting an IV put into him. Terrible way to lose precious time at Burning Man.)

Here's an example (or just google "beer potomania" or "hyponatremia"). Given, this man drank 10 beers.

If you're going to drink beer all day, eat salty food, especially with protein, and drink water, electrolytes, chocolate milk, V-8, etc.

Hey, some people, who would never go to Retrofrolic, look forward all year to lying in a dark, dusty space and having a medic in yellow hook up a drip.

Sure, sure you can count the beer as water.......until it's time to shower, then you need to break out the Champagne.

Did you really think that if you poured a bottle of beer into a aluminum container in the privacy of your camp, and take the bottle with you when you leave BRC, you needed to check on this? Seems more like trying to make it an issue, rather than not. The original post -"So ya can... but not... then is that ok?" The suggestions in place are based on reality, and then you ask if it's okay with ??? if you do whatever. "I'm told that this, but can't I do that?" As if the "rules" are making you do something, and a confirmation is needed before you'll go along, not that the sensible reason for doing something is good enough on it's own. Do you understand why glass bottles are frowned on at Burning Man? It has nothing to do with the ones in your recycling box in your trailer. You can do whatever you want. Instead of validation, just do the right thing. Even if you have exceptional night-vision, wear a light at night.
