  • In Your Mace! Pepper Spray Inspired Beer from Dogfish Ale

    In Your Mace! Pepper Spray Inspired Beer from Dogfish Ale

    Most of us, hopefully, will never experience the sensation of Mace brand pepper spray firsthand. And in a shocking failure of reading the room, Dogfish Ale has given everyone a chance to get a little taste o’ Mace, with a new craft brew entitled In Your Mace! According to a Dogfish statement the beer is actually an […]

  • Five Star Lager: A Chicago Exclusive Craft Beer from Lyft

    Five Star Lager: A Chicago Exclusive Craft Beer from Lyft

    One of the great advantages of using rideshare services like Lyft instead of driving is that you can get as drunk as you want and the only real risk you take in transit is severely annoying your driver. In turn, that means Lyft is free to explore possibilities within the craft beer industry for some […]

  • DDark Roasted Brew: A Dunkin’ Donuts Craft Beer

    DDark Roasted Brew: A Dunkin’ Donuts Craft Beer

    It has been said that there is no better way to start the day than a steaming hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Clearly, this conventional wisdom has reached its expiration date, with the unveiling of Dunkin’ Donuts own craft beer, DDark Roasted Brew.  DDark Roasted Brew gets its coffee-like name from the fact that it […]

  • Fried Fried Chicken Chicken: Beer Brewed with Fried Chicken

    Fried Fried Chicken Chicken: Beer Brewed with Fried Chicken

    I feel like at least once a month I invoke something that happened on Seinfeld on this site, and I know it’s been George Costanza’s brief stint as a Tyson Chicken executive at least once. And yet, I’d be remiss not to mention that very stint when I tell you about Fried Fried Chicken Chicken […]

  • The DogHouse: BrewDog Brewery is Opening a Beer Hotel in Ohio

    The DogHouse: BrewDog Brewery is Opening a Beer Hotel in Ohio

    Generally speaking, when a non-hotel company decides to get into the hospitality business, it ends in disappointment. I’m thinking of the late, lamented Shoney’s Inn, and my own personal favorite, Hooters Inn. But innovation happens when fools rush in where angels fear to tread, so I have high hopes for The DogHouse, an upcoming “craft […]

  • Craft Beer Historian Being Sought by Smithsonian Institution

    Craft Beer Historian Being Sought by Smithsonian Institution

    If you’ve spent your life ensconced in the world of craft beer, it’s possible that you’ve wasted a lot of time in the pursuit of knowledge and enjoyment of that particular field. But what if it turned out not to be such a waste after all? That could be the case if you get hired […]

  • 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 […]

  • HefeWheaties Beer: The Breakfast of Champions

    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 […]

  • Craft Beer Candles From Cool Material

    Craft Beer Candles From Cool Material

    Beer is thought of primarily as a refreshing and drunk-making beverage, but true beer fans know the aromatic value of a good beer as well. It’s this value that goes into a new line of Craft Beer Candles by Cool Material, designed to replicate the distinctive smells of three different craft brews. Those brews are […]

  • New Belgium x Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale

    New Belgium x Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale

    You might want to sit down before you read this: New Belgium and Ben & Jerry’s are collaborating on a beer. It’s New Belgium x Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale and I probably don’t have to tell you why that’s so exciting. But I will anyway. If you know anything about ice cream, you know […]
