A beer that is served below freezing?????

Greetings Campers,

Thats right. A beer thats served below freezing. The good Captn has found some information tha Coors Brewing company UK has developed a beer that when served is colder than freezing. See linked info Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but keeping beer below freezing is not usually a problem for winter campers.

During Winter Camp III we had temperatures drop down to negative 10 degrees. During that camp we built a fire that was chest high and kept it blazing all night. We had to take our beers and form a ring around the fire and turn them occasionally to keep them from freezing solid. This technique worked out quite well. The only draw back was that in order to open said beers, one would need to remove ones gloves. If one was not careful one could find ones self attached to said beer can. The other problem that presented itself was the occasional need to return a beer to nature. This was Winter Camp III and we were still suffering from what is known as young and dumb. It never occurred to us that when nature called, leaving a beer by the fire would be ok. So all of us at one point wondered from the fire carrying an open beer, to answer the call of nature. This is where all of that science stuff we were supposed to learn in school would have been helpful. If you take a near freezing beer, stumble away from the fire into the negative ten degree woods, set down beer on cold stump, take care of business, stumble back towards fire and then take a drink of the beer, something happens. That something is not good. A below freezing beer can when touched to a warm lip has a tendency to freeze to that lip. After losing a couple layers of lip skin we all learned to warm the spot you planned on taking a drink from and testing before taking a long swig of beer.

So Coors your too late. Winter Campers were serving below freezing beer over twenty years ago.

The other innovation from that camp was the beer slushy. I remember having to strain the ice crystals through the teeth to get to the golden necture. I think the unbreakable egg was also invented at that camp. Just get the Kinsu out and peel it like a potato. I believe I used 2 as ice cubes for the morning Jack and coffee. Week to Pre-Camp, brushing up on the Robert’s rulle of Order, Put gas line antifreeze in the 4 wheeler, run a gear check on Thursday, Forage of friday.
