“No, because it would probably be disgusting.”

“Yes. … Powdered beer, you don’t have to recycle the cans.”

“Yeah, that’s a great idea when you’re backpacking.”

As for powdered beer/wine, seriously? No.

My favorite would be cold and free, second favorite is hot and free, third would be powdered and free.

Ah, powdered beer and. . . hiking. Sounds. . . a little dangerous.

Powdered? I'm not that desperate. I would think anyone who is may have a drinking problem.

They already make concentrated beer. It's called Bourbon.

Only in an emergency and after I exhausted my supply of grain alcohol and listerine.

When the zombies are coming thru the wire, we'll wish for the good old days of powdered beer.

Well, no, I wouldn't. I wouldn't drink the unpowdered stuff either, but that is a bit beside the point. Those who do drink it I presume do so, at least in part, for the effect of the alcohol. In dehydrated form, that would be gone I would think. Have you ever tasted what powdering does for milk? I can only imagine if you start out with something that smells spoiled to begin with.

Real men don't need to add water...just a spoon.

wow, this would be so easy, lines of beer and wine straight to the brain. you never have to taste it or bother with that pesky thing called swallowing. also, for the light weights, you never find yourself in a position to have to get into a chugging contest. i say do, powder the beer. it can only be for the best.
