For Beer Lovers

It does exactly what it says: carbonates. What’s more, Pat’s has extended its line of soda concentrates, which come in Gu-shot-size packets, to include beer. Empty the contents into the Carbonator, add an activator tablet (think Alka-Seltzer), and use the finger-operated pump to gas it up. The whole process takes about a minute and a half, and while it isn’t exactly an ice-cold Bud, beer of any kind is a great thing after a long hike.
