Is “Just Add Water” Beer The Future?

Lugging around a 30 pack of brews can be a back breaking process, until now. Pat’s Backcountry Beverages is claiming to have perfected a process that removes the water from beer, claiming  the nearly waterless beer concentrate “contains all the great flavor, alcohol, and aroma of a premium quality micro brew.” If this actually works it could completely change the way we drink ice cold brews.  But they are also quick to point out that this isn’t simply 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, a 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 brewery has perfected a device called a Carbonator which is for sale on their website. The Carbonator brings the individual elements, highly concentrated beer, water and carbonation, back together giving you “good old beer” to enjoy.
