Mountainbeering: [moun-tn-beer-ing]

Mountainbeering encourages the appreciation of the simpler things in life.  Practiced by anyone with a thirst for both adventure and, well, beer.

A little about our Mountainbeering hosts:

Luke

I didn’t always like beer, adventure and outdoor sports. Long Island Iced Teas, a comfy cubicle, and video games used to be just fine for me. Then one day after becoming a level 60 Paladin or some crap like that, I realized that it was time for a change.

As it turns out, I’m a big fan of having fun. Luckily, drinking good beer, riding bikes and climbing mountains is way more fun than spacing out in front of a computer screen and calling marketing departments that don’t really want to talk to me anyway. I’d much rather share a beer and a conversation with a delusional hippy in the middle of Joshua Tree than schmooze with insincere VIPs at a swanky bar in San Francisco.

Patrick

After two years of working in tall ass buildings, I decided it was time to work in some tall ass mountains. I’ve decided I will never go back to the former. After my stint in Corporate America I have been globetrotting and testing out all sorts of jobs from spa coordinating in Vail, to fund-raising for animals in Ireland, to bicycle guiding in Alaska (where I met Luke).

Nothing is more appealing to me than awesome friends, with some awesome beer, going on an awesome adventure (I’m now teaching English in Korea and one of the first words I taught my students was awesome). I have met some incredible people and seen some incredible things over the past few years, and look forward to how many more people Mountainbeering can bring into my life! Plus I’m always looking for new ideas on places to check out!

    Ahhhh! Nice record of your trips. And the schtick of “beering” is quite cool!
    I’m sure this is not a complete list but being able to visit:
    Mexico, Tibet, Las Vegas, South Korea, Vail & Durango, CO, Bolivia, Thailand, and
    Ireland etc. takes a nice financial plan to execute.
    Be great if more people could afford these wonderful kinds of trips.

    Your choices to get out of mainstream job frenzies in the US were awesome and completely founded in intelligence. Good job guy(s)! More power to youse guys and happy beering around the planet! Because you can!

    • Hey Tony!
      Thanks for the comment. Since leaving the “mainstream” we’ve actually been working in many of these places to earn enough money for the next adventure. Additionally, some of the stories are from friends of ours who have taken trips. Feel free to send us a Mountainbeering adventure of your own, we’d love to post it!! Cheers!
