    Talking Beer on sheep hunts?

    So who's going to start taking this new beer on their sheep hunts? I think I'll have to give it a try next year. My hunting partners seem to get ticked off when they find the bottles of beer that I sneak into their packs...this might help with "hunter relations"...

    Cool idea. I always wondered if they could do beer in capri sun style containers for backpackers.

    It already comes in cans which work pretty well.

    What works really good is when your buddy is busy looking the other way you slip a 6/pack into the bottom of his pack and at the end of a long, hard packin and sit down and say man what I wouldnt do for a beer right now and when he agrees you fish it out. It will only work once but after they have one with they get over it pretty fast. Ron.

    Pat's good friends with my in-laws and was one of our neighbors. It's a dang shame they had to move south to get this thing going, but good on them. Can't wait until I can order some for myself.

    Beer is too heavy. I prefer the Platypus bags filled with Stollies, Crown and Carolans.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I don't know about you all but I would rather take along the babe in the video with me hunting than any beer concentrate. Besides I don't have to carry her and she has great hand action !

    Isn't that the point of this product, though? It wouldn't be heavy if you only had to carry the carbonator and the concentrate while pulling the water from a stream.

    If the stuff tastes decent - and I'm assuming it will, since the guy is a fan of craft beer - then I'm sold.

    I've wondered if he was ever going to get this out on the market. Someone posted this here 2 or 3 years ago and it seems he's finally close to selling it. Nothing better than a cold beer after a hunt in the mountains!

    Easy Rich Bitsy is a very smart, high class lady...and beautiful.

    I think I mentioned it a couple years ago. I still have one of Pat's original hats. The trials and tribulations of getting this deal to market would fill a book.

    I'd hold off on the alcohol until the guns are put away and I'm back in civilization.

    I stuffed a 6 pack into my brothers pack along with a pint of crown royal, a few cigars, and some other goodies....He was a little pissed, but after I let him have one of my beers....he cooled off.

    As to the post above, I never mix booze and guns. A little nip before bed or after the hunt is fine though.

    Bears like beers too, this is what happens when you come back to camp after a long day thinking you've got a cold one waiting for you only to find out someone has beat you to it.
