  • 121-Year-Old Whiskey Found in Scottish Time Capsule

    121-Year-Old Whiskey Found in Scottish Time Capsule

    Alcohol is not one of the standard-issue time capsule components, maybe because no one wants to waste good liquor on their descendants. But someone went against the standard formula over a hundred years ago, and now we have a newly-surfaced bottle of 121-year-old whiskey as a result. The bottle, which is unfortunately sans label so […]

    ‘Tacopedia': A Taco Education in One Volume

    If you think about it, tacos are kind of like edible books – tortilla binding, meat, vegetable, and cheese pages, maybe an avocado bookmark or something.

    The world of Kentucky bourbon is a fascinating one, at least to the select few bourbon enthusiasts out there.

    Surf N’ Shack Burger Coming to New England Shake Shacks

    I’ve got some good news and bad news. The good news is that Shake Shack has unveiled their latest masterpiece, a cheeseburger answer to surf ‘n’ turf called the Surf N’ Shack, with real buttered lobster on top of the usual beef.

    MIRA Beer Growler Keeps Beer Cold for 24 Hours

    It feels like we cover a lot of beer growlers on this site, but barring some huge innovation in beer growler technology or an irresistibly stupid gimmick, this one might be the last.

    HefeWheaties Beer: The Breakfast of Champions

    I don’t know what’s going on over at Wheaties HQ, but someone must have decided that the brand’s commitment to physical fitness and health was only taking them so far, because now we have the officially licensed HefeWheaties beer from the Fulton craft brewery in Minnesota. HefeWheaties mercifully doesn’t have any actual Wheaties cereal in […]
