No this is not a commercial for some diet beer or soda, rather a
different way to shed pounds....from your backpack. I came
across this -
Gizmodo. Looks like Pat's Backcountry Beverages is going
to release a powdered soda mix and highly concentrate beer
mix. Why lug around the weight of all that water in your soda
and beer while hiking and camping? You get a specially
designed bottle that features a pump on the lid for pressurizing
its contents, and then to make soda you just mix the soda powder,
carbonizing agent and some water and boom - instant soda!
The beer is actually a highly concentrated liquid. Add
some water and instant beer. You can read all about it on the
Pat's Backcountry Beverages
So, what do you think? Good idea? Would you shed the
pounds and try this out? The key to me is the taste - if it
taste like the real thing, sounds like a very cool idea!
