Pat’s Backcountry Beer

Pat's Backcountry Beer

Just add water and carbonation beer for the backcountry? Seems suspect, but holy, that’s a great/useless idea. For the alcoholics in all of us

How is such a thing possible? According to the company’s website, the beer concentrate isn’t made by dehydrating a conventional beer. “Instead, our process (patent pending) allows us to start with almost no water, and carefully control the environment of the fermentation,” says the site. The result is supposedly a beer that tastes like a “premium micro brew.” Each beer packet makes a single 16 oz. pint.

Pat’s Backcountry Beverages owner, Pat Tatera, says the beer is just barley, water, hops and yeast, writes “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,” he said.

    Huge market with all of the “dry” native communities. The bootleg microbrew smuggling kind of blew my mind up there. Assuming a reasonable pricepoint this seems simpler and easy to pack in via skiff / bushplane. No judgement, pretty libertarian alcoholic here. Cool product too
