Hi everyone,

I need to figure out the exact(or best) meaning for the parts unlined.
Would you check them a moment and tell me your thoughts?

Thank you!

Q1 : What do you think "leathery old cowboys" are?
Are they the one who like to wear clothes made of leather?
or is it about their characters/personalities, for example, tough ..? Or else...

Q2: Who is the subject of the last part "heavy on the crystal pendants and karmic evolutionary talks"?
New ages or cowboys ?
Or both of them?

The clientele in and ’s Wild West saloons (where the smell of two centuries young gunpowder lingers amid the stench of cigarette smoke and hamburger grease) is a mix of leathery old cowboys and new agers – heavy on the crystal pendants and karmic evolutionary talks.

Q3: meaning of "on tap at the pub"

Any special meaning ?

When it comes to the , there’s some local lingo you just must know: ask what kind of microbrew (a locally produced beer, usually made in small batches) is on tap at the pub.

Leather, from which cowboys' clothing is often made, wears and ages, but lasts for a long, long time. I think the image here is that the cowboys are like the leather they wear....old and wrinkled (physically and mentally0.

The younger generation is more into the style of the hippies of the 60's: crystal pendants that might have mystic powers and discussions about philosophy.

At the saloon, you can get local beer so fresh that it isn't even in bottles....just comes from the tap.

My opinion is cowboys with leather because they are compared with new agers.

I'm a little confused here. The subject is at the begining. It's the clientele. Cowboys and new agers are the objects.

The clientele in Montana and Wyoming’s Wild West saloons (where the smell of two centuries young gunpowder lingers amid the stench of cigarette smoke and hamburger grease) is a mix of leathery old cowboys and new agers – heavy on the crystal pendants and karmic evolutionary talks.

Q3: meaning of "on tap at the pub" Meaning which beer is available for immediate use.
I think it comes from the fact when you turn the tap you get the beer.

When it comes to the Rockies, there’s some local lingo you just must know: ask what kind of microbrew (a locally produced beer, usually made in small batches) is on tap at the pub.
