The most important piece of climbing equipment
« on: May 24, 2011, 08:22:12 PM »
All right folks, in order for me and my friends to have a great climbing adventure this coming weekend, especially in these thunderstorms and rain, we need to find a keg of beer.

So, any NC/Ossipee locals know of any places that sell kegs and rent taps? I need to find one and I'll be in Freedom this weekend.

Any advice would greatly improve the quality of our climbing weekend.

Maybe Munce's on 16 in Ossipee.  It looks like a log cabin with a gas pump in the front yard.  Plenty of dead critters on the walls in the store ;D.  Kegs too I think.   I've got a half kicked PBR in the shed.  You can HAVE that ;).

most distributors deliver kegs on thursdays.  That being said, if you wanted something in particular i.e. not bud or pbr (not there is anything wrong with pbr) the requests usually have to be done by tuesday.  Luckily it memorial day weekend so places may have more kegs available.  Placed to try would be Discount Beverage in North Conway near Shaws, Glen Beverage in Glen at the 16/302 split or the Moat.  Good luck!

Ahh, great climbing trip! I placed a total of 0 pieces, but emptied the keg. It was far too dangerous to leave the beer unattended, so we skipped the climbing....it was a tough call...
