Just imagine after a great day of hiking, you finished setting up your camp and the fire is roaring. Wouldn't be nice to have a beer. But who wants to add the weight of six pack to an already bulky pack. Well now there's a beer concentrate that weighs nothing and all you have to do is add water. Pat's Backcountry Beer Concentrate ($10) works in conjunction with their carbonator bottle. The carbonator bottle ($29) is 16 ounces and all you have to do is add some water to the concentrate to get a beer. Pat expects the beer concentrate to be released in September and a 4-pack will sell for about $10. You can sign-up at their website for release information.

A word of warning to all this thinkers, poets, artists and misfits: Soulpancake ($13) is not just a book, it is a movement that chews on the big questions in life. The side effects of reading this book include changing how you think about what being human means. Consider yourself warned. Somewhere through the time, chewing over Life's Big Questions became very uncool. Luckily for us Rainn Wilson, Dwight Schrute in The Office on NBC, along with a bunch of his buddies, is on a mission to change this. Based on the hugely popular website of the same name, Soulpancake aims to get people really thinking about the world amongst them, and is the book we have been waiting for.
