  • ManCan Personal Keg System

    ManCan Personal Keg System

    Superheroes, unfortunately, are not real. But when I imagine someone with a portable 128-ounce keg of beer strapped to his back, ready to dispense beer to anyone in his vicinity, I’m hard-pressed to come up with a better word for him. So it’s possible that using the ManCan personal keg system just might make you […]

    World of Beer Seeks Brewery-Touring, Beer-Drinking Interns (Video)

    If someone were to sit down and try to conceive an almost comically awesome internship, I don’t imagine they would be able to do much better than the one currently being offered by World of Beer, a beer website currently seeking three “Drink It Interns” to get paid, travel the country, and drink beer. The […]

  • ‘Contraband Cocktails: How America Drank When It Wasn’t Supposed To’

    ‘Contraband Cocktails: How America Drank When It Wasn’t Supposed To’

    The Prohibition era is one of the most romanticized of 20th century America, but it actually wasn’t so easy to drink when it was illegal, logistically speaking. Contraband Cocktails: How America Drank When It Wasn’t Supposed To is a book from late last year that covers how the revolutionary drinkers of the Prohibition-era United States […]

  • Humboldt’s Finest Weed-Infused Vodka

    Humboldt’s Finest Weed-Infused Vodka

    Being drunk and high at the same time is a somewhat controversial position, with some arguing that it isn’t even possible, while others swear that it’s a unique and worthwhile experience for those open to it. Humboldt’s Finest vodka probably won’t clear up any of this confusion, but as a 40% ABV vodka infused with […]

    There are probably a lot of bartenders out there who would claim that cocktails are a work of art. But only Hong Kong‘s Rajendra Limbu is making the connection explicit for a new line of art-inspired cocktails for the Artesian bar in Hong Kong. Artists like Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, and Piet Mondrian served […]

  • Bernie Weisse: Beer Inspired by Bernie Sanders

    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 […]

  • Stillhouse Original Moonshine

    Stillhouse Original Moonshine

    Moonshine is largely thought of as a “worst case scenario” kind of alcohol, when your main priority is not flavor or a pleasant buzz but getting as drunk as possible as quickly as possible. But even though you’re not in prison or living under prohibition doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some 100% clear moonshine whiskey […]

    “Billionaire’s Margarita” at NYC’s London Hotel Costs $1,200

    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. What’s in a Billionaire’s Margarita? The main ingredient […]

    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

    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. But that’s already changing with the release of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye this month. Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye is what whiskey and rye buffs call “grain-forward,” with a 70% rye grain bill. It’s […]
