Small packet with concentrated beer and alcohol. Just add carbonated water.

I was pouring myself some fizzy water from my water spritzer, when I realized how easy it would be to store and ship beer if all you were storing was a little packet.

       Great link. Premium beer? That can't be bad. Right?   

       See I was thinking something like Instant Budweiser: start with beer, then add water.

       Just drink the water - tastes prettu much the same, except pehaps it lacks the heady tang of equine urine.   

       Big (industrial) brewers have been working on the technology of "post-mix" beer for some years, with varying degrees of success. Here's hoping for their complete and utter failure....

       Good point. If anyone actually likes beer well enough to work in a brewery, would they truly *want* to succeed in making beer-powder?

       Think of the marketing opportunities here. Instead of a keg, you'd have one more option at the soda machine.
