    Re: Tactical beer? WTH?

    I think I am old fashioned. I don't even call my handguns a tactical tool. Back in the dark ages....not that long ago there was work knives of many classes and fighting knives of many classes. The fighting knife was there without the tactical label back then.

    Re: Tactical beer? WTH?

    "tactical" in my mind calls images of the army,special forces,etc.the only true Tactical thing is something intended to be involved with some kind of tactics. a tactical pen?
    is every time you go outside really a "mission" or something? if so isn't that a problem? lol. :lolhammer:

    I have been around military people all of my life. It seem only very recently that the work tactical got used so much.

    Back about 15 years or so REI sold (at least in my local store) 'dehydrated beer'. It was a small packet of ....stuff.... that you could add to a cup of water, and supposedly make 'beer' from.

    Oh, if you wanted alcohol in your 'beer' you'd have to add it, the recommended way was from a miniature bottle of vodka.

    I never had the guts to try it. I think my wife (reformed Canadian) saw it and disposed of it at midnight, on a moonless night...

    I think in most applications, Tacticool is the appropriate word.


    To reiterate. It's all marketing.

    Dude, how could you NOT try something called Dehydrated Beer if you had the chance?? It sounds so rancid and intriguing.

    How about a bunch of US Navy Sailors dressed in digital-blue camouflage on a big, gray warship.

    It's confusing to me too, Jon. It's confusing to me too. :(

    At least we won't have to iron these uniforms (so they tell us)! :D

    You guys are getting camo for ship board use? Did they give a line of thinking on that?

    Sometimes during intense combat with insurgents you need a hardcore beer that can satisfy your killer instinct.

    It probably is worth noting that the original 'tactical' beer in this thread I don't believe is using 'tactical' as a buzzword, and is just referencing 'tactical nuke', which IIRC is a fairly standard term for a certain type of weapon (the results of which strongly resemble drinking said beer)...

    Anyone drink Duvel? I'm on my third bottle. That's my limit. Those who know it will know why.

    A beer that's 32% is OTT. (But I wouldn't turn down a bottle if one came my way!)

    I'm on my third bottle of beer tonight too, but nothing quite as powerful!
