I saw this on HuffPo today. Makes sense, and I'd be interested in trying one. But carrying a soda siphon on a trip? Bourbon is the appropriate drink for the wilderness.

It's an interesting idea and with the carbonating bottle you wouldn't have to pack water in, you would fill it with your sterile water filter or with water that had been boiled and then cooled as you would normally do to get water when backpacking. However, it really does sound like it wouldn't taste very good after all that processing...then again everything tastes better when you're camping right?

I think I would still rather just pack in a six pack of a good beer in cans. Here in Portland Oregon there is a brewery called Basecamp Brewing that brews light, more refreshing beers and packages them in a tall aluminum bottle. I still think the traditional can is a better idea though because you can crush them afterwards so they take up less pack space.

There is additional information and an early review here:

http://www.gizmag.com/pats-pocket-si...entrate/28590/

"Beer flavored sparkling water" was the term that was used to describe it.

The article also mentions that the inventor is communicating with "major players in the industry" to see if the concept could be scaled up to revolutionize beer transport. Concentrated beer would be shipped and mixed at the point of sale, just like soda. I don't think that will take off, although BMC might go along with it, to go with their vortex bottles, punch-top cans, and color changing labels.

Um, I am pretty sure there is already concentrated beer on the market, this stuff works great, especially around a campfire. Easy to backpack in, assuming you put in plastic bladder or container, if you really want you can add soda water to it too.

I thought of a great name for it last night:
