We might not have flying cars or jetpacks yet, but in addition to all the modern technologies we current get to interact with on a daily basis, now it is possible to buy beer in little packets and hydrate it on the go using a fancy soda-carbonating device. Man, screw jetpacks — the future is definitely now, and it is wonderful.
Here’s the description from the Pat’s Backcountry Beverages Website:
Beer is typically about 95% water, which makes it heavy, cumbersome, and expensive to transport. But with our innovative and modern brewing process (patent pending) we can create a nearly waterless beer concentrate that contains all the great flavor, alcohol, and aroma of a premium quality micro brew. Our beer is not dehydrated beer!
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, and enjoy.
The beer concentrate is primarily intended for camping trips or other instances where carrying around a six-pack might be really annoying. Instead you;d be carrying around six little packs of Pat’s beer, a carbonator, and a pouch of eco2ACTIVATOR that will give the beer it’s fizz and foaminess once you’re ready to drink it:
