Last October, Will McGough (of Wake and Wander) and I got sent to cover a story about the bottle vs. the can in craft brewing. The obvious choice in Colorado being Oskar Blues in Longmont, who gets the credit for bringing good beer in a can to the US. I learned a lot talking with Dale (of Dale’s Pale Ale fame, pictured), and I now consider myself a can convert. I won’t bore you with the details, but if you’re so inclined you can learn more about it in the article on Outside Magazine’s adventure ethics blog.
Dale is a character to be sure, as evidenced by one of his favorite sayings, “Go F*** You!” He hates having his photo taken, so I heard it a number of times. Luckily he was willing to work with me, but I thought this lead shot was only fitting. I’ll leave you with a couple other favorite takes from the day.
