Beer Concentrate

Ship syrup to bars to lower shipping costs

First, vacuum distill the beer, and trap the alcohol for future use. Second, vacuum distill out a majority of the water. Third, add back the alcohol. Fourth, sell it to hole-in-the-wall dive bars as a dirt-cheap alternative to preformed beer.

I wouldn't drink this crap, but the majority of your Natural- Light crowd would certainly enjoy the even lower cost of getting wasted without style.

       Scope for drinking the concentrate neat [+] An old tired idea [-] Neutral on balance I suppose...

       [+] I don't drink but I'd certainly start if I could put it in a soda fountain with the other flavors.

       how is this distilling process cheaper than making schnapps, which cost more than beer? []

       Not an idea but in fact a reality (see link)

       Bigger question: //Can you still find a pub ... in central london ?//
Answer: So far as I know there is not a single pub remaining in central london; all are now mere bars.
vincevincevince, Sep 29 2009

       //Where do you draw the line between pub and bar ?// Difficult question. First of all and most importantly; a pub is a community; most patrons are part of the community and most know and live around each other. At a bar, you either drink alone or bring your own friends. A pub then typically will have a number of these characteristics: no music, very light music, friendly landlord and atmosphere, good lighting, ample seating, affordable food, fresh beer, most patrons drinking sensibly. A bar will typically have a number of these characteristics: loud music, big screen sports, aggressive bartenders, high-strung charged atmosphere, focus on cheap spirits commercial lagers, large portion of people on a drink-until-drunk scheme, bar snacks rather than meals, overcrowding.

       The link to the Coors train cars refers to wort as beer concentrate. Wort is actually pre-beer, think of it as malt/hops/water. So while it can be a concentrate, it's not beer, since it has not fermented into an alcoholic beverage yet.

       Given that fantastic description, are there any real pubs in the greater Tampa Bay area?   

       I wonder what will come of Pat's Back Country beer.

       What's central Bigsleep? The Shakespeare on Goswell road (near the Barbican) sports two pool tables. Judging by v³'s criteria, I would class it as a pub.
