indexPat’s Backcountry Beverages has created a just-add-water beer concentrate using a lightweight carbonation system, scheduled to debut next month.

Now you can crack open an iced cold brew just about anywhere without lugging around a heavy six pack.

Pat’s Backcountry Beverages, a brewing company in Alaska,  has created a just-add-water beer concentrate using a lightweight carbonation system.

Each pocket-sized beer packet makes a single 16 oz. pint by adding water to a bottle-shaped carbonation system that contains a compartment for Pat’s Eco2Activator powder mix — potassium bicarbonate and citric acid — to produce CO2 bubbles that transform the brew from flat to bubbly.

“We’re looking to launch a Black IPA and a pale a Pale Rail in early to mid-September,” Sam Hobbs, director of Sales at Pat’s Backcountry Beverages, told the Daily News. “A four pack should cost around $9.95.”
