We've been waiting for this moment all our lives. The moment when it became unbelievably easy to carry beer around — hiking, stadiums, church, etc. — because it was completely dehydrated and all we had to do was add water!
That moment is here!
There's a company based in Talkeetna, Alaska, that’s gone off and invented a “beer concentrate.” That means you just add water, and boom: you've got yourself a brew! Here's how it's described:
“Pat’s Backcountry Beverages specializes in backpacker-friendly carbonated beverage kits. Among those carbonated beverages is, you guessed it, beer. The way the kit works is by taking Pat’s beer concentrate, which is apparently a thing, and adding water to it in a simple, bottle-shaped carbonation system.”
It's about time! The world was just starting to get unbearably crazy! Now, some comfort for the masses!
Here's what Pat himself, about the advanced science behind it all:
“If you come into our facility, you’ll see fermentors, you’ll see a mash tun, you’ll see a brew kettle, but you’ll also see some equipment that looks like some sci-fi movie, and that’s where our very specialized technology allows us to do what we do.”
We guess the only problem now is making it cold — warm beer can just get right the hell out of here! We're sure if you're in Alaska this will be no problem, but what about those further south?
Our solution might be to bring along some of the crush-to-create ice packs! Wraps those insta-brews in those!
Science, b*tch! We wanna try some!
