Maybe he brought it with him from his home?

sun, I think over serving is a problem; but I also think that high altitude can be a problem as well- visitors (from much lower altitudes) don't always realize it takes less to get drunk here.

7000 ft is high altitude?Gimme a break.Have you ever seen anyone in the oxygen bar the texan opened EVER?

7000' is most definitely high altitude to someone that's coming from sea level. Ever notice all those oxygen tanks that line the sidelines at Invesco(I still cringe at anything but "Mile High Stadium") that seem to always be attached to someone?

It takes less to get drunk here? The devil you say! It still costs me a fortune.

hey, I'm just sayin'...cause I know when I go to denver, it seems to take more drinking to get drunk( or the time I went on a cruse and couldn't seem to get drunk)- and if they are on the mountain skiing or boarding, they have been at high altitude. After living at high altitude (base of Longs Peak basically) for 8 years, we saw a lot of people get really sick from the altitude (some even die) and add some beers or a few drinks= trouble
