Hiker? Camper? You might want to take a look at this one. A beer powder that you add water (and bubbles to) and boom beer on the go. Alaska-based company Pat’s Backcountry Beverages have a way to make beer really portable. You very literally just “add water”. It’s not dehydrated beer. Pat’s says its a new process that creates a waterless beer that has flavor, aroma and alcohol of a microbrew. You mix the concentrate with water, add bubbles with the carbonator bottle, and boom. Beer on the go.
Unlike other concentrate processes, this is not just about making the beer and then “removing” the water afterwards (which is extremely energy inefficient). Instead, our process (patent pending) allows us to start with almost no water, and carefully control the environment of the fermentation. The result… concentrated beer with all the same great taste you’re used to in a premium micro brew. All you do is add water, carbonate (check out our carbonator), and enjoy.
The beer options should be available by September, 2012. [PatsBackcountry]
