I call BS !

No MRE IPA for me, thanks

Mine is the true survivalist beer. Just add water, barley, hops, and yeast.

I saw this yesterday, they are touting it as an alternative for camping, hiking, etc. but unless you are near some plumbing or a stream, you'll have to carry in your water anyways. I wonder how it actually tastes. Has anyone out there tried it yet?

I'd swear I've seen a product in the beverage section of my local grocery store - something like "instant beer - just add water"... I wonder if this is the same stuff? I'm gonna check next time I go shopping...

Preface: Lately my idea of "camping" is pulling the bike into the lot of a Best Western.

When I used to hike/camp, the standing order was he who packs the beer gets out of cooking washing and firewood details

I"m hard pressed to think of ANY instant product that holds a candle to making the real thing. Makes BMC sound good, and I don't say that lightly.

The last time we went tent camping, my wife announced that there would be no camping in the future unless our shelter had a bathroom.

Sounds like something out of the Jetsons... "Jane stop this crazy thing!"
What's the worst that could happen?  Beer?

I wonder if we're related sometimes lol.
The wife and I are going camping in a couple weeks. A cabin on the river in Winthrop, then Friday Harbor Inn, then a resort on Lopez Island,  then the Obertal Inn in Levenworth. Roughing it

I car camp and bring growlers and kegs. I'd give this a try if I was going backpacking. I don't see it as being much different from the dehydrated food that backpackers eat.

In 2006, my wife and I hiked the Appalachian Trail. finding good canned beer was nonexistant in those days, so we'd split a liter of vodka. Every evening on the trail we had a cocktail of 4oz vodka and crystal light. at first others laughed at us sitting there with "our little hiker-trash drinks". But after over a thousand miles and into PA they weren't laughing so hard. 2,175 miles took us 182 days. There were only 4 nights I didnt have a bev, only because i was too exhausted to do so, or we rolled into town where the beers flowed freely. One HAS to reward one's self after walking all day.
I have since modified. I found a vodka that comes in aluminum bottles (Kru). I bought some 1.75s, drank the vodka, and now we fill them with whatever I have on tap. If you're just going for an overnight-er they are perfect.
I wish i had bought a couple cases of Bud Lite when it was in the aluminum bottles; those would've been perfect for backpack or on a boat.
Pack it in, pee it out.

Imagine the fossil fuels I wouldn't be burning the next time I transport my beer? Last time I transported beer, I didn't need a tanker truck!

 ;D  that's camping like my friends Lee's Acura MDX is a "truck"  ;D
Every time he refers to his truck, I roll my eyes, shake my head and say, "Lee, Acura doesn't make a truck"
Thank you BEER!

Is there such a thing as powdered alcohol??  No, there's not.  Simply add vodka??  But then you're really just drinking a malt extract cocktail.  Add some green olives or pickled mushrooms, and you're g....

NO.
