    Bernie Weisse: Beer Inspired by Bernie Sanders

    Bernie Sanders is a surprisingly popular dude these days, given his self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” leanings and his cranky, abrasive persona. Which is why it’s only appropriate that a beer has now been named after him, and that it’s billed as being “slightly sour and forward-thinking,” just like our boy Bernie. It’s Bernie Weisse from the […]

    At the London Hotel in New York City, the very rich (or the very financially irresponsible) have a new menu item to use to make everyone around them envious of their massive wealth (or, again, financial irresponsibility): The Billionaire’s Margarita, priced at a healthy $1,200 a pop.

    Beer Hot Tub Developed by Starkenberger Brewery (Video)

    When I was a kid I used to imagine living in a Scrooge McDuck mansion with a swimming pool filled with gold coins, but with some additional pools also filled with stuff like snow, sand, plastic balls (like at McDonald’s), etc. What I didn’t imagine was a pool full of beer, but the people at […]

    Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye Available This Month

    In the illustrious history of the Jack Daniel’s brand, the label has never offered an aged-to-maturity rye in any form.

    Budweiser Logo Gets a Fresh, Pared-Down Makeover

    I believe that Brian Eno suggests “Simple Subtraction” as one of his Oblique Strategies for creative endeavors.  And apparently someone at Budweiser‘s marketing department drew that card in the last few months, because there has now been a new, pared down Budweiser logo unveiled by the beer brand. The new Budweiser logo retains the shape […]
