There’s a new beer in town, but instead of being sold in traditional bottles or cans, Pat’s Backcountry Beverages’ booze will be retailed in the form of sachets and, as the company claims, it has “the same great taste you’re used to in a premium microbrew”.
According to the Alaskan brewer’s website, unlike other concentrates, their upcoming product has undergone a patent pending process called HBT (Hybrid Brewing Technology) that allows them to start producing the concentrate with almost no water. The result is highly concentrated ale with the same aroma and taste as an ordinary beer.
Mind you though that, unlike other concentrates like juice, Pat’s BCB’s concoction requires carbonated water in order to mimic the sought-after properties of genuine brewed beer. This is why the company also sells a DIY water carbonator that can be purchased along with their beer concentrate. Here is short video demo of Pat’s Backcountry Beverage’s Portable Carbonator in action.
Currently, Pat’s Backcountry Beverages’ beer is available in two flavors; Pale Ale and Black Ale. The Alaskan brewer plans to sell their booze-in-a-packet starting mid-September and will be available in packs of four (4) for a little under USD10.
