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 beer. Pat expects the beer concentrate to be released on September and a 4-pack will sell for about $10. You can sign-up at their website for release information.
