Frequently Asked Questions

Is this real?


How does it taste?

Incredible. Our sodas are all natural, gourmet, out of this world awesome, and our patent pending modified brewing process is capable of producing the same great tasting beer as a standard brewing process… without the water.

How concentrated is it?

Very. However, not all beers have the same percent alcohol concentration. Therefore, a higher alcohol content beer will appear less concentrated because there remains a larger volume of alcohol present after most of the water has been removed. Conversely, lower alcohol beer will appear much more concentrated, because in its natural state it contains a higher percentage of water. Our process does not result in a beer that is 100% void of water. It does however, result in a beer with nearly no water content. Some of our most concentrated beers will be at a nearly a 1:15 concentrate level. Our sodas on the other hand are concentrated to approximately a 1:11 ratio (concentrate: finished beverage)

How do you carbonate it?

We recommend using our Pat’s Backcountry™ Carbonator. It is ultra lightweight, compact, and easy to use.

How do I get some?

The Carbonator Bottle and Soda Concentrates is now available through our online store. We will also be regularly updating a store locator page of retailers throughout the country that carry the Pat’s line up.

When will it be available?

Our carbonator and soda concentrates are now available through our online store. We anticipate launching our beer concentrates in early 2013.

Is this just for backcountry use?

No. Backcountry use was just the catalyst to create the process and products. The potential for these beverages reaches far beyond the backcountry. They require less energy to produce, less to ship/transport, and are better for the environment. Consider the global implications and let your imagination wander for a moment.
