    Mikkeller Beer Chips: Chips Made from Beer Ingredients

    Chips and beer go together almost as well as pizza and beer, chicken and beer, cheeseburgers and beer, another kind of beer and beer, and so on. Small batch chippery Lokale Rødder has teamed up with the Mikkeller brewery for Mikkeller Beer Chips, potato chips made from actual beer ingredients and to replicate actual beer flavors – it’s […]

    Archburger Being Tested by Select McDonald’s Locations

    Long time fast food fans look back fondly on a sandwich known as the Arch Deluxe, an early attempt by McDonald’s to offer an upscale cheeseburger complete with fresh beef, a fancy potato flour bun and “Arch Sauce,” a mayo and mustard blend. Like all good things, the burger was destined to fail, but now […]

    It’s The End Of The Wort As We Know It by Dogfish Head

    When society collapses and the survivors of the great cataclysm go underground, it’s likely that beer will not be a top priority for some time, at least until we can figure out how long we have to stay underground and how we’re going to go about repopulating the Earth. BUT, should we decide to keep […]

  • Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Cultural differences between countries can be fascinating sometimes. For instance, where I sit in the southeastern United States, it’s unthinkable to me that anyone would want to invent a fried chicken that doesn’t smell like fried chicken. KFC Japan – for some reason – has done exactly that with a “repressed scent” fried chicken called Fried […]

    Arby’s Meat Sweats: Restaurant Releases Special Holiday Sweatsuits

    It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to clock yourself in a glorious robe of Arby’s roast beef. But in order to do that, you have to purchase a frankly irresponsible amount of Arby’s sandwiches that you’ll obviously just end up eating anyway, so it’s a good thing that there’s a new line of Arby’s […]

    The Silo: A Novel Sandwich is the Source of Legal Controversy

    Generally when I write up weird sandwiches on here, the stakes of the sandwich in question are pretty much limited to the reader being able to try one for him or herself if they feel like it. But with The Silo at the Half Brothers Brewing Co. in Grand Forks, North Dakota, which is now NOT being served due […]
