A 12 ounce Guinness in the bottle weighs about 1 lb. 4 oz and contains 153 calories, so the question has to be -- which would you pick?

Guinness. Then the hot chocolate.

Too bad I haven't been able to figure out how to live by beer alone

Ummm ... well there was this ramien food when I was in Korea -- that actually included vegetables. That would be better. I am looking for some better foods than that. But I really need to have less that 1.5 lbs. a day.

I hear there is a shortage of salt in the widerness, however, so maybe the ramen will help.

Guinness, but I'd prefer 8th Street Ale

Could the fries at 4 peaks pass for the vegetable? Of course they do really have a great veggie burger there. Smothered in Cheese and fried peppers, onions, chipolte. A long bike trip, but a meal as a fitting end?

Personally -- I think the Kilt Lifter® might have more calories -- but alas -- fries are still more filling then beer.

Bikes, beer and fries, four peaks, Tempe AZ, backpacking, desert. Gila Monsters.

Soon ...

I think it's resoundingly clear, beer is better than top ramen.
