The end result has alcohol as a byproduct of fermentation and is consumed as is. The only thing similar about these two things is the fact that ethanol alcohol is in them and they're intended to be consumed. Otherwise, completely different.

Appreciate the clarification. Probably won't buy any myself but its neat regardless.

To turn Palcohol into your favorite adult beverage, you just add the powdered alcohol (which comes in a package sort of like a sugar packet) to five ounces of water. It currently comes in six varieties: rum, vodka, cosmopolitan, mojito, margarita, and lemon drop.

To take precautions against this action, we've added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose.

So no the final product its not anywhere near "everclear". And like I said I doubt thous will taste anywhere near as good as their namesakes. If the vodka is really none flavored it might be usable for some screw drivers or something but even then I suspect that what ever the powder is made of will impart some undesired flavor on it. No thanks, I rather stick with Stolichnaya or Russian Standard.

well alcohol can taste good as is the problem with everclear is its cheap and taste bad because of it being so cheap if you taste alcohol that is made by someone that knows what they are doing it has a better taste like a good quality moonshine smile.gif

I agree, I have never heard or seen a guy that only drinks 1-2 beers......those that say they do remind of those guys on the show COPS telling cops that they only had 1-2 drinks when they really drank a whole lot more than that.

Most people drink to get drunk, after 1-2 beers you don't even notice the taste of the beer anymore so it's irrelevant.

I don't even see the point in drinking 1-2 if that's all someone drank.....you'd be better off just drinking something that tastes a whole lot better as 1-2 beers won't even give most men a buzz.

TBH I drink both for taste and to get a buzz...XD. Craft beers taste good generally, and potentially even have higher alcohol concentrations than your average bud or miller.

This is more novelty than anything I think, but could be fun to make drunken dishes with tongue.gif
Nothing will truly replace good hooch though for me.

Indeed.
Most IPA for example are around 7% and I've had a few that were 10.5-11%

7-10% is still very low though if we're talking two 12oz cans. Coors light isn't too far behind and that's a very light beer.

I think craft beers are more of a hipster thing than anything though. There are many things out there that taste WAY better than beer if someone is only going to have 1-2 drinks. Sparkling fruit drinks come to mind.
