6 Beers You Should And Shouldn't Drink

6 Beers You Should And Shouldn't Drink

The main issue? It doesn't taste good. Because Heineken is imported, it has to travel long distances. Unfortunately, its signature green glass bottle doesn't protect the liquid inside from damaging sunlight, leading it to develop a second, much more unfortunate signature: a skunky, musty flavor. With so much great beer available these days, why bother drinking something if it tastes like crap?

Need further evidence that buying Heineken means you're wasting your money ...and your taste buds? Their biggest announcement of late has been the release of a zero-alcohol beer with 69 calories. Yeah, not exactly a direct competition with anything you'd find in the craft beer market.

Online reviews are easy to make fun of, but the truth is that most of us put a lot of stake in what we read on the good ol' interwebs. In fact, one study showed that 84 percent of survey respondents said that they trusted online reviews as much as they would trust a friend's recommendation. So, that begs the question ...why would anyone drink Coors Light, an abysmal beer that has a rating of 2.04 out of 5 from more than 5,000 reviews on Beer Advocate and an even worse 0 out of 5 rating from over 2,000 reviews on Rate Beer?

This is an easy one to pin down. Basically, it just tastes… well… bad. Coors Light may have been the second best selling beer in the country in 2018, but that doesn't mean you have to buy it. It just means that a whole lot of Americans were duped the same way.

How One Family Has Kept the Beer Flowing For Over 150 Years

How One Family Has Kept the Beer Flowing For Over 150 Years

Once upon a time, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, a German immigrant named Jacob Leinenkugel came upon a source of pure spring water and 2,500 thirsty lumberjacks. So like his ancestors before him—and with his wife, Josephine, working tirelessly alongside—Jacob started brewing beer. A family affair from the beginning, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company has kept the taps flowing for over 150 years. Has it been easy? Heck no!

Charlotte Brewery Offers Free Beer For Stolen Van

Charlotte Brewery Offers Free Beer For Stolen Van

They got it back in 42 minutes.

 — The Unknown Brewery may have just accidentally broken an unofficial world record for locating a stolen vehicle.

The Charlotte-based brewing company posted a photo of their missing van to their Facebook page on Monday stating someone had taken it.

The brewery also offered a reward for their missing van. A reward only fitting for a beer company.

"Whoever finds it, Brad will buy you a keg party! If you stole it and bring it back, you will also get a keg party."

In just 42 minutes, WCNC reported, a woman named Caroline spotted the stolen van parked along her street.

Unknown posted a photo of their newly recovered van and said "new record for finding a stolen van."

Looks like they're also honoring their reward offer because they said Caroline gets a keg party [on them.]

Man To Drink Only Beer During Lent

Man To Drink Only Beer During Lent

An Ohio man has given up food for Lent and is planning to live off of beer for the next month and a half.

For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Del Hall will be only drinking beer.

"I'm going to have all styles of beer," said Hall. "I am nervous, I'm very nervous about it, I've only fasted for four days."

From four to 46 days for Lent, Hall is taking a nod from monks in the 1600's who would fast during the season by a bock beer diet.

"That would be their liquid bread and that's what they call it," said Hall. "So the monks in Bavaria, they would call doppelbock liquid bread and basically it would sustain them through 46 days of Lent."

Hall knows people think he is crazy, but he has a game plan and wants to see if he can prove to himself that it's possible.

"I'm an army veteran, so you know, I was number one in my class in the army," said Hall. "I've run a full marathon before, 26.2 miles. I've done big challenges but this seems very daunting so I'm just curious if I'm up to the challenge if I'm going to be able to do it or not."

Hall will be keeping track of his health and checking in with physicians as he moves forward with his fast.

The Top 10 Selling Beers Of 2018

The Top 10 Selling Beers Of 2018

Craft Brew Fans Will Be Angry And Ultra Lovers Will Be Ecstatic

There is a strange rivalry amongst people who enjoy tried and true mainstream beers and craft beer enthusiasts. There is an odd contest to see which beer drinker is better, as if there was a metric to determine such a personal choice. With one gentleman guzzling his canned light beer at the bar and the other dude sitting next to him with a flight of IPA, saison, Kölsch, and gose beers, you’ll never hear, “Hey, you like that beer? That’s cool. I like this beer. Enjoy the beer that you like.” Why this is a competition is ponderous. So with the unveiling of the top 10 selling beers there is sure to be some hubbub about the list.

Darren Rovell posted the top 10 beers sold in the U.S. in 2018. The figures were gathered by IRI Worldwide, a “leader in powerful market and shopper data, predictive analytics and the foresight that leads to action.”

Bud Light is destroying the competition. Bud Light had an incredible $5.2 billion in total sales, more than double in 2018 sales than the next competitor Coors Light, which had only $2.2 billion.

What should be noted is that eight of the top 10 best-selling beers of 2018 were down in sales over the last year. This comes as no surprise since millennials are drinking less brewskis. Beer companies are searching for new revenue streams and some have even started to invest in cannabis beverages.

However, two beer brands were gaining market shares in a year that was abysmal for much of the industry. Keystone Light was up 4.8 percent and Michelob Ultra was up a whopping 15.6 percent. Michelob had marketed their Ultra beer as a healthy, low-calorie alternative to other beers and it has paid huge dividends. Michelob has also targeted women with great success to increase sales. While sales for other big beer brands have been on the decline, Michelob Ultra sold 33 million more cases in 2017 than they did in 2012.

So no matter if you like Budweiser or a “craft brew that you probably haven’t heard of yet,” be kind to your fellow beer drinkers. And let’s unite to make fun of spiked seltzer drinkers.

U.S. Senator Bans Funding For Beerbots That Don’t Exist

U.S. Senator Bans Funding For Beerbots That Don’t Exist

Last Thursday, Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona introduced the following amendment to the U.S. Department of Defense appropriations bill currently in Congress:

None of the amounts appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be obligated or expended for the development of a beerbot or other robot bartender.

This sounds like a joke, but it’s not: Legislation prohibiting Department of Defense funding of robot bartenders is on its way to becoming law. The reason why Senator Flake wants this to become law is based, at best, on a misunderstanding of how basic robotics research works. At worst, it's a deliberate decision to misrepresent the research for political gain.

In 2015, MIT researchers presented a paper at the Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS) conference on “Policy Search for Multi-Robot Coordination under Uncertainty” [PDF].   As a way of demonstrating the improvements, the MIT students set up a beer delivery task to show how multiple robots could work together efficiently, even if they weren’t able to communicate with each other all the time. It was a cool demo, and did a good job of showing how effective MIT’s new algorithms were.

The MIT work was funded in part by both the Office of Naval Research and the Air Force. This is not unusual: The Department of Defense (DoD) funds a lot of robotics research, and most of the time it’s not too much of a stretch to see how there could be potential defense applications for it. In this case, as we pointed out in our 2015 article: “in a warehouse or disaster environment, you probably have a bunch of robots all trying to coordinate to complete well defined tasks, probably without nearly as much information as they would like, and this kind of planner allows them to be consistent and efficient in their actions.” This also extends to other logistics tasks, the researchers said, like delivering medical supplies in hospitals.

Because of the demonstration involving beer delivery, Senator Jeff Flake is now using this research as an example of wasteful spending by the Department of Defense. This is not the first time a U.S. Senator has used robotics research for this purpose, and Senator Flake in particular is known for his efforts to reduce federal spending that he sees as wasteful. Here is a quote from Senator Flake’s presentation to the U.S. Senate introducing his amendment:

Mr. President, did you hear the one about three robots that walk into a bar? No, you haven't. It's not a joke, but rather a project paid for in part by the Department of Defense. These robots, called "beerbots" (you can see a depiction here), were programmed to serve cold beers to graduate students. Researchers say that programming methods used for beerbots can be applied to other multi-robot systems in restaurants and bars, but as you can see the private sector has already developed robot bartenders, or robartenders. They've been mixing drinks in bars and even on cruise ships for years now. And with our national debt exceeding $21 trillion, taxpayers should not have to pick up the Pentagon's tab for beerbots and many other unnecessary spending items which are in the bill we're considering right now. 

This amendment was adopted by the Senate by unanimous consent.

The issue here is that Senator Flake is conflating a student demonstration of how research could potentially be applied (delivering beer) with the fundamental objective of the research (in this case, multi-robot planning under uncertainty). Senator Flake also does not make any reference to what the objective of the research actually was: solving real-world logistics challenges. Instead, he seems to think that MIT was using government funding to develop a commercial robotic bartender, and his solution is to amend the DoD budget to prevent something that wasn’t even happening in the first place, from happening again.

It's difficult to understand how Senator Flake could have missed all of the detailed and easily available information about this research. For example, you can see that he uses a screenshot from MIT’s video in his presentation on the Senate floor, but he appears to have ignored the explanation of the general importance of the research in that same video. And Senator Flake’s reference to the researchers saying that the robots could be used in restaurants and bars is taken directly from this MIT News story, which also makes clear (in the headline and elsewhere) that the system could be used to deliver medical supplies.

Robotics can be a complicated topic, but there are plenty of sources that Senator Flake could have asked for help in understanding this research, including the authors of the paper.  Chris Amato  who is now an assistant professor at Northeastern University,  shares his perspective on how his research is being interpreted (emphasis ours):

Our research was on very general algorithms for multi-robot coordination. Our target application domains were logistics problems such as delivering medical supplies. As a fun substitute, we used beer in the demo. The research really doesn’t have anything to do with beer and wasn’t about beer delivery.

According to Dave Levitan, journalist and author of the book Not A Scientist: How politicians mistake, misrepresent, and utterly mangle science, "this is unlikely to actually be a 'misunderstanding'." Instead, Levitan says, Senator Flake is most likely using this research as an opportunity to take on supposedly wasteful spending, by finding perfectly reasonable government funded research projects that can, says Levitan, "be made to sound ridiculous when put a certain way. He almost certainly does it on purpose, ignoring the true value of the research and counting on the public to not be well enough informed to push back. And no fact-checking happened because that would have ruined the bit."

The good news, I guess, is that this likely won’t have a tangible impact on robotics research. Instead of delivering beer, robots can demonstrate their capabilities by delivering any number of other things, as an MIT spokesperson pointed out to us in an email over the weekend:

To demonstrate the system, the students thought it would be fun to use cans of beer, but obviously any item could have been used to illustrate the sophisticated algorithms that were developed to enable the robots to complete the task. 

Really, the only thing that this legislation is going to do is take away a little bit of freedom that grad students have to try to make their work fun sometimes, while reminding us how desperately we need more representatives in our government who have a better understanding of science and engineering.

We asked Senator Flake's office for comment, and a member of his communications staff pointed out that the Senator was clear in his statement that the programming methods used for the beerbots could also be applied to other multi-robot systems. Senator Flake doesn't have an issue with supporting robotics research, we were told, but he doesn't want federal funding to be used for the development of beerbots specifically.

You can watch a recording of Senator Flake introducing the amendment on the floor of the Senate here, and read it (SA 3835) in the Congressional Record here.

Beer Waste May Help Us Eventually Live On Mars

Beer Waste May Help Us Eventually Live On Mars -



Since we live in a time when you can now buy tickets to space, the idea of a family trip to Mars isn’t all that far-fetched. Granted, there are still plenty of hurdles to jump along the way, but it appears one unlikely source might be the answer we may need to eventually call space home – beer.

Researchers at Colorado University Boulder recently discovered a transparent aerogel brewed from beer by-product, known as “beer wort.” That gel-like beer waste, given its super-insulating and ultra-transparent properties, as well as extreme lack of weight, could prove vital for building greenhouse-like habitats for Mars or Moon colonists one day.

“Aerogels are extremely porous solid objects that are made mostly from air and are about 100 times less dense than glass panes. Our aerogel is made from nanocellulose, which is grown by bacteria that eat waste beer wort, a waste byproduct of the beer industry,” Ivan Smalyukh, a physics professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, told Digital Trends.

The science behind aerogels is nothing new, as many modern items currently use the technology like bricks, tiny houses and winter jackets. However, the researchers at the university have come up with the ability to make the aerogels translucent, something that was previously unattainable. The breakthrough will allow for windows that provide complete insulation while still providing an eye to the outside.

While the research team, recently named one of the winners of NASA’s 2018 iTech competition, hopes that their technology will eventually find its way into space, the more immediate need is currently right here on Earth. The Department of Energy says around one-quarter of the energy that is expended to heat and cool buildings in the United States goes toward offsetting the loss of heat through windows, which costs building operators billions of dollars every year.

Structures built with the new aerogel technology would not only allow for proper insulation but would also allow the buildings to trap heat inside, which could be used for sustainable growth or new power sources. So, pretty much, beer is the reason why global warming will eventually subside and we’ll, at some point, colonize space.

So pack your bags, kids. You might be going be on a family space-cation before long.

Canadian Startup Company Brews The World's First Cannabis Beer

Canadian Startup Company Brews The World's First Cannabis Beer -

It wasn't long ago that Canada legalised the recreational use of cannabis and it looks like some people couldn't wait for the change in the law - because a startup has already developed the first ever cannabis beer. Yes, cannabis beer - it's supposed to be an alternative to alcohol. Just one question: who needs an alternative to alcohol? CEO Dooma Wendschuh clearly thinks some people do because his company, Province Brands, have created the brand new bev.


According to the MailOnline, there are already beers on the market brewed with barley and infused with cannabis oil, but none have used the plant itself in the process of brewing. Wendschuh told the Guardian that the creation tastes 'dry, savoury' and 'less sweet than a typical beer'. He added: "The beer hits you very quickly, which is not common for a marijuana edible."

He went on to explain the technique that is used in their small Ontario lab, saying: "Our beer is brewed from the stalks, stem and roots of the cannabis plant." Wendschuh, who is from Miami, moved to Toronto in 2016 to capitalise on Canada's pending plans for legalisation and to create an alternative to alcohol, the Guardian reports.  He continued: "The idea came from thinking, can we create something that can serve the role that alcohol serves in our society, and can we do that using this monumental sea change that is happening in our world right now? "I don't think there was anywhere else in the world where we could do this business. Canada is already leading the world in creating an industry around medical cannabis and we expect them to continue to lead the world in trading and industry around adult-use cannabis."


And by the sounds of things, it was a lot of trial and error to begin with. "The things that we would come up with just tasted horrible," he said. "They tasted like rotten broccoli." Sounds delicious...

Any alcohol produced during the processed is removed, resulting in a non-alcoholic, gluten-free beer that also offers a cannabis high. Wendschuh wants the company to be the world's first cannabis brewery, with plans to roll out a variety of beers using different flavours and strains of cannabis. But even though he believes his product will be safer and healthier than alcohol, he acknowledged that it comes with risks. "Marijuana is not good for you and our beers are not good for you," he said. "You should not drink them five times a day, you should not drink them first thing when you wake up in the morning. We're not saying that.

"If I could create an alternative to alcohol, that's something that would change the world. That's something I'm very passionate about."


Last month, Canada passed a bill to legalise the drug in terms of recreational use - which spanned nationally. The bill was passed by a vote of 52-29 in June, which ended a 90-year prohibition - but it won't come into effect until 17 October. Plenty of time to perfect the brew, then. The law makes Canada only the second country to have a nationwide, legal marijuana market - after Uruguay.



How Do You Name A Beer Brewed In Dildo? Tastefully, Owners Say

How Do You Name A Beer Brewed In Dildo? Tastefully, Owners Say

The owners of a new craft brewery set to open in the Trinity Bay community of Dildo have a conundrum: what do you call a beer brewed in Dildo?

Dildo Brewing Company and Museum co-owner Angela Reid says there's no shortage of people suggesting names for their new beers, but finding the right ones has been a challenge.

"This community and a lot of the place names and a lot of the quirky things that people say … we're going to play with that a little bit and we'll have some interesting names on our beers," she said.

"But it is kind of top secret right now."

Background in wine making

Even the brewmaster is tight-lipped about the names.

"I'm making beer, beautiful beer," says Lionel Rodrigues.

"My job is to make the beer, so the owners are going to come up with ideas for that."

Rodrigues's name will be familiar to people who know about winemaking in the province. His father, Hillary Rodrigues, founded the Rodrigues Winery and Distillery in Whitbourne decades ago.

I love beer and I'm really happy to be a part of this.- Lionel Rodrigues

But now Lionel Rodrigues is branching out to something new.

"I've been a winemaker and run a winery and distillery and a nutraceutical plant for years, but I've been very interested in beer and have done a lot of homebrewing on the side and worked with some other brewers," he said.

"So, it's just an ideal shift. I love beer and I'm really happy to be a part of this."

Rodrigues has brewed stout, IPA, red, blond and blueberry blond beers to start. The red beer gets its colour from beets, and the blueberry beer uses locally grown berries. Rodrigues says he hopes to use other locally produced ingredients in future beers.]

Peeps-Flavored Beer Is A Thing Now... Gag

Peeps-Flavored Beer Is A Thing Now... Gag

Show me someone who says they actually like Peeps and I’ll show you a freaking liar. While that may be a tad dramatic, it’s honestly difficult to find anyone that actually enjoys those marshmallow nightmare birds. It’s kind of how it’s difficult to find someone who enjoys candy corn. But not to worry, because Peeps may be getting quite the improvement.

According to Grub Street, the folks at the Dallas-based brewery, Collective Brewing Project, are the masterminds behind the Peeps Beer: a “sour ale brewed with more than 30 boxes of Peeps, some vanilla, and butterfly-pea flower.”


Ryan Deyo, the co-founder of Collective Brewing Project, tells Dallas Morning News that they hate that beer has “become this super serious thing,” and that beer “should be a fun thing.”

CBP has teamed up with Lone Star Taps & Caps to make this Peeps beer — a beer that the makers say is supposed to have a “marshmallow-y” and “lightly tart” taste. And if that’s not odd enough, they’ve also added some glitter.


If you’re super eager to devour this Peeps beer, it will only be available in the Dallas area around Easter. But don’t worry, buy yourself a box of Peeps and shove them into a glass of beer and you will essentially have the same time #LifeHacks.


The Best Beers To Throw Back On St. Patrick’s Day, Ranked

The Best Beers To Throw Back On St. Patrick’s Day, Ranked

St. Patrick’s Day might be dedicated to a patron saint, but we somehow transformed it into a celebration of drinking copious amounts of our favorite alcoholic beverages while wearing green shirts. In other words, what a great day.

As such, there are various brews that people like to get their hands on for such a glorious occasion. Some sip on the rare and one-of-a-kind batches, while others simply snag any old beer and drop some green food coloring in it because it’s festive.

Whether it’s an Irish stout or something really light, there’s no limitation to which beers you can drink on St. Paddy’s Day. You’re free to consume whatever you want, no matter what others say about keeping it to a specific tap, bottle or can. With that in mind, we drummed up some great beers to have as you approach everyone’s favorite (drinking) holiday.

7. Guinness


This is the obvious go-to beer for the holiday. As an Irish stout, it’s creamy and goes down with a tangy flavor. If you really want to enjoy this properly, it has to be poured from the tap the right way by someone who knows what they’re doing. Get yourself a girl who can pour a Guinness correctly and wife her up QUICKLY.

6. O’Hara’s Irish Red


Red beers are a personal favorite, mostly because of the molt body that comes with caramel tones. According to the brewer, they add a “healthy addition” of caramel to the mashing process for this Irish red ale, which adds to the deliciousness.

5. Karl Strauss Red Trolly Ale


Here’s another outstanding Irish red ale. Karl Strauss is based out of San Diego, which is known for the red trollies used for public transportation. Hence, the name. This award-winning beer is warm fermented to bring out raisin and currant flavors, and it packs a nice punch at 5.8 percent alcohol by volume.

4. New Belgium Fat Tire


As mentioned, you aren’t confined to drinking one specific set of beers for St. Patrick’s Day. That means it’s OK to skip out on an Irish beer in favor of something from elsewhere. This is the case with Fat Tire, a Belgian-style ale brewed in Colorado by New Belgium Brewing Company. The beer was inspired by the brewery’s co-founder after he took a bicycle trip through Belgium. When he got back to the states with a handful of ingredients, he produced this ale known for its sweetness and balance between toasty malt and fresh hops.

3. Innis & Gunn Whiskey-Aged Stout


This wonderful member of the stout family is a Scottish stout aged in Irish whiskey barrels with a hint of English origins. Yes, there’s a lot going on there in terms countries, but it’s a 6.1 percent alcohol by volume beer that has a subtle taste when compared to other stouts. If you’re not a stout drinker, this one is a good choice to open up your taste buds to the particular type of beer. Also, it’s a limited edition.

2. Ballast Point Sculpin


This is the India pale ale of India pale ales. Sculpin is the beer responsible for many acquiring a taste for IPAs, and potent enough at 7 percent alcohol by volume to turn St. Paddy’s Day into an early night. According to the brewery, the brewing processes’ use of hops creates “hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish,” which you can see on the label. This is one of those you’ll want to limit in terms of consumption (unless you’re not worried about the hangover the following day).

1. Allagash Curieux


This wonderful concoction is one that will leave you appreciating the taste of barrel-aged beers. Allagash took their Tripel and made this delicious golden ale by aging it in bourbon barrels for seven weeks. The result is an 11 percent alcohol by volume brew that is as tasty as it is potent. There are hints of vanilla and coconut in this beer, while also keeping that slight bourbon flavor. Curieux is best served in a chalice and can be enjoyed through a tap or the bottle you find in stores. Allagash used to only bottle this beer in 750 ML, but the company very recently started shipping in 12 ounce four packs. Even more so than the Sculpin, tread lightly with this one on St. Patrick’s Day because two glasses can take down even the gutsiest of beer drinkers.

Some Of The Weirdest Beers America Has To Offer

Some Of The Weirdest Beers America Has To Offer

Question: What do oysters, glitter, assorted pig parts, birch tree sap and barbecue sauce all have in common?

Answer: They’re just a few of the ingredients featured in some of the more adventurous beers poured at this year’s Great AmericanBeer Festival, an annual early-October gathering of breweries from across the country in Denver.

2016 marks the 35th anniversary of the festival, which this year boasted more than 800 breweries and upwards of 3,800 different beers ― the largest collection of U.S. beer ever assembled ― all served in a sprawling, delightfully chaotic convention center:

How do you make an impression when you’re one of close to 4,000 beers? Going weird is a good bet. So we went in search of the most boundary-pushing brews we could find.

A note about our methodology: This is far from an exhaustive list of all the festival’s most adventurous beers. It does, however, represent a pretty solid cross-section of the more unique offerings. We selected the below beers for tasting because they were either highlighted as “odd/unique” by the beer blog Porch Drinking, pulled from the Great American Beer Festival’s own “fear no beer” list, or entered into the competition under the “Experimental” category.

Weird is good. Weird is different. And, for the most part, weird is delicious.

Beer for breakfast

Ever heard of scrapple? (No relation to the board game. Or the drink.) No, this scrapple is a meat product consisting, in part, of pork livers, fat, snouts and hearts. Delaware's Dogfish Head Brewery incorporated it in its Beer For Breakfast, a surprisingly lively winter stout that also includes Guatemalan Antigua cold press coffee and maple syrup. Pair with a large stack of waffles, a crackling fire, and a snowbound cabin. Delicious.

Seven Region Oyster Saison

1,500 oysters from each of Virginia's seven distinct oyster flavor regions went into Lickinghole Creek's Oyster Saison, which co-owner Sean-Thomas Pumphrey described as a "light, lemony beer."

Lickinghole brewed the beer in collaboration with the Virginia Oyster Shell Recycling Program, a nonprofit that uses shells to reintroduce oysters into threatened waterways. Great beer for a good cause? Shuck yeah!


Sometimes the newest, most adventurous beers have old, old roots.

Such is the case with Off Color Brewing's "Wari," based on an approximation of a more than 1,000-year-old recipe used by the ancient Wari culture of Peru to make "chicha" (a corn beverage originally produced by chewing the grain and spitting it into large fermentation vessels). Researchers at the Chicago Field Museum helped the brewery reconstruct the recipe using residue from ancient pots found at a Wari dig site.

The brewery imported purple corn from Peru to stay true to the original recipe, which brewery representative Andrew Tader says delayed production by about a year, because "customs thought we were smuggling drugs."

Another brewer, who goes by "Bocce" (and whose business card identifies him as Baron von Boccenheimer, with the title of "duct tape gladiator"), said they did make some alterations to the recipe, however: Unlike authentic chicha, "We obviously didn't chew it up and spit it."

Mermaid Tail Ale

Mermaid Tail began life as a golden ale brewed with beets, but brewmaster Cat Wiest of Santa Cruz's Seabright Brewery found the beets too earthy and overpowering. So she added lemon drop hops and blood oranges, turning the creation into a bright citrusy bit of sunshine. Then she added FDA-approved edible glitter, she says, "just because I can!"

"It didn't occur to me I was making a pink sparkly beer," Weist told HuffPost with a laugh, "I just ended up with it."

Inset: Glitter. Loads of it.

Mushroom Ale

"Most people hate mushrooms," concedes Adam Milne, the owner of Portland Oregon's Old Town Brewing, who hopes the establishment's Mushroom Ale "bends [people's] minds a little bit."

Consider this reporter's mind bent: The beer, which tastes like pancakes and maple syrup, gets its flavor from a pound of Candy Cap mushrooms per 14 kegs brewed. According to Milne, the mushroom, commonly found in the pacific northwest, is a favorite of the region's pastry chefs for its delicate, sweet flavor.

General Washington's Secret Stash IPA

Colorado brewer "Dad & Dudes" earned one of the longest lines at the festival for its offering of several beers that incorporate Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabis oil also known as CBD. Co-owner (and "The dude") Mason Hembree told HuffPost a family member with epilepsy inspired him to begin using the ingredient (CBD has been shown to have a positive effect on controlling seizures).

"It took awhile to muster up the courage" to brew cannabis beer, Hembree acknowledged, "and another year to figure out how to do it legally." The brewery is the first in the country to win federal approval for its cannabis beers.

Mateo BBQ Stout

What possessed Ironworks' head brewer Wade Maslen to concoct a beer with a gallon of barbecue sauce in every keg? Sudden inspiration, mostly. That, and the pub's chef had just wrapped up making a fresh batch of the stuff when he decided to go for it.

With a laugh, Maslen told HuffPost that Ironworks' owner "did not support or condone the idea," but he decided to try it out anyway. The resulting stout comes across as subtly smoky, with a bit of tomato and black pepper.

Pipe Tobacco Porter

There's no smoking allowed in the Great American Beer Festival (a smoking area is provided nearby), but if all you're craving is the flavor and not the nicotine, New Helvetia Brewing has you covered. The Sacramento brewery's Pipe Tobacco Porter attempts to replicate "walking through the mall and smelling the pipe tobacco shop," said general manager Owen Largent. Largent assured HuffPost the beer doesn't actually contain tobacco, but declined to share the brewmaster's secrets for imparting the flavor. Notes of rich mahogany and many leather-bound books abound.

Tomato Gose

Tin Man brewer Jack Sranek originally set out trying to capture the flavor of a Chicago-style hot dog for the brewery's Tomato Gose. While he failed to accurately create "hot dog beer," he did end up with a pretty tasty, less meat-driven approximation. Brewery co-owner Sara Davidson told HuffPost no hot dogs whatsoever were used in the brewing process; instead, there's a healthy dose of tomato, poblano peppers, cucumber and assorted spices. Davidson said it tastes more like a Bloody Mary or a Michelada than a hot dog, and we agree.

Pickleball IPA

Ever get the urge to crack a jar of pickles and take a big, deep drink? If so, meet your beer. The briny aroma of "Pickleball IPA" belies a hoppier, crisper beer than you'd imagine, albeit one with plenty of garlic. Ty Nash, the head brewer at Big Horn brewery's sister location in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, told HuffPost no pickles actually go into the beer, just a smattering of herbs and spices to "replicate the brining process." Nash said Pickleball "sells fantastic."

Chaga Old Ale

Scratch Brewing Company added chaga mushrooms and birch sap foraged from near their secluded Illinois brewery to this barrel-aged strong ale, which weighs in at a deceptively drinkable 9.1 percent alcohol by volume (most beers are closer to 5 percent). Brewery co-owner Marika Josephson told HuffPost they collect the sap and boil it down just like you would for maple syrup: over a wood fire. The beer was then aged in chambourcin barrels (a red wine varietal) for an incredible, deliciously complex drink.

LSD Honey Ale

Whoa, there. Nothing illicit in this LSD, just lavender, sunflower honey, and dates. Indeed Brewing describes the creation as "kaleidoscopic" and "mind bending," but we'll just stick with "floral." This beer tastes like you're running through a field of flowers with an open mouth.

Florida Woman Arrested After Attacking Club Bouncer With Pack Of Pabst Blue Ribbon

Florida Woman Arrested After Attacking Club Bouncer With Pack Of Pabst Blue Ribbon

If you ever attended college or if you’ve ever been to a party near a college, chances are that you’ve drank some Pabst Blue Ribbon. And chances are you weren’t a big fan of it. And apparently Casey Lynn Willey isn’t a fan of it either as she chose to attack someone with a pack of it instead of drinking it.

The 27-year-old woman was recently arrested after she decided to hit a nightclub bouncer with a 12-pack of PBR. It all kicked off when the bouncer tried to kick Willey out of the “:08” nightclub when she refused to leave after the bar was closing. Hey, she was having a grand old time.

Police reportedly saw Willey hit the bouncer at about 3:10 a.m. on Oct. 30. When she was arrested she tried to leave the area of the club even with handcuffs on. Willey first refused to give her name and date of birth to police, while “behaving violently and yelling profanities.” She eventually shared her information, but not before she started to act aggressively towards police.

Willey is only facing the disorderly conduct charge because the bouncer did not want to press charges against her.

And that’s the story of why Willey decided that she should probably lay off drinking for a bit.


Man Locked Inside Beer Cooler Stays AND Consumes Several ADULT Beverages

Man Locked Inside Beer Cooler Stays AND Consumes Several ADULT Beverages

MARSHFIELD, Wi. (Nexstar/KXAN) — A Wisconsin man who accidentally got locked inside a beer cooler at a gas station stayed inside and helped himself to beer overnight.

The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune reports the 38-year-old man told police he entered the cooler at the Kwik Trip to buy some beer but ended up getting locked inside around 11:50 p.m. Tuesday. Instead of alerting the employee, the man said he decided to stay in the cooler all night and drink beer.

It was only when another customer told employees about the man Wednesday morning that his “free” beer jig was up. According to the store’s manager, the man drank an 18-ounce bottle of beer and three cans of malt beverage. He also knocked over a stack of 30-can beer packs, which resulted in three cases breaking open.

The man left the store around 5:50 a.m. Wednesday without paying for any of the beer he consumed. The man was issued a citation for retail theft.

Budweiser Launches Nearly Forgotten Beer Using Pre-Prohibition Recipe Packing More Alcohol


Budweiser Launches Nearly Forgotten Beer Using Pre-Prohibition Recipe Packing More Alcohol

On January 16, 1920, the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect, which prohibited the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages in the United States. For 13 years, Prohibition was the law of the land and many were not pleased that alcohol was banned. One company that was extremely frustrated that Prohibition happened was Anheuser-Busch, the beer giant that was created in 1852 by Eberhard Anheuser and his son-in-law Adolphus Busch. Prohibition forced St Louis-based Anheuser-Busch to switch from making beer to manufacturing soft drinks, non-alcoholic malt beverages, ice cream, and malt extract. Finally, the Twenty-first Amendment was fully ratified on December 5, 1933, which repealed Prohibition and alcohol was legal once again. This holiday season, Budweiser celebrates the repeal of Prohibition with a beer inspired by an Anheuser-Busch beer recipe dating back before Prohibition.

Sadly, soon after the beer was developed in the early 20th century Prohibition went into effect and the brew was only available in the St. Louis area. The new beer is influenced by the recipe for the special old school beer that dates back to pre-Prohibition times. Anheuser-Busch InBev beer revealed Budweiser’s 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager, which is a limited-time brew.

“We are excited to mark the upcoming holiday season and the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition with this new brew based on a forgotten recipe,” said Budweiser vice president Ricardo Marques. “While Budweiser Repeal Reserve is a great tasting Amber Lager, it also tells the story of an important part of our history and gives reason for celebration.”

The reincarnation was “tweaked” a bit from the pre-Prohibition recipe and is a 6.1% ABV amber lager, higher than original Budweiser’s 5% ABV. The new beer “consists of a light, hoppy aroma and rich caramel-malt taste.” The 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager comes packaged in “vintage Budweiser stubby bottles.” The limited-time beer is a holiday release that coincides with the 84th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition.

To promote the 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager, Budweiser teamed up with Lyft to give riders a chance to ride in a Prohibition-era car. Lyft will have five Budweiser-themed early 1900s vehicles for special rides back into time. However, the old school vehicles will only be available in New York City and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. The Lyft cars, which are only available between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25. The Lyft rides will include tours of landmarks and neighborhoods that have historical references to Prohibition. You can sign up for the Lyft rides HERE.


Trying to pin down which pub is the oldest in Europe is a little trickier than expected. From Nottingham, England to Athlone, Ireland, watering holes all over Europe claim to have been pulling pints long before anyone else.


Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Will Make You Shout "Merika"

Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Will Make You Shout "Merika"

As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known this week that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allows protests to continue. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving ever Military family in the country in complete shock.

The beer company offered a public statement that didn’t condone the National Anthem kneelers but also didn’t discredit them. They spoke of support for our military members who have and are defending our freedom but left a lot to be desired in making a real statement through assertive action.

Yahoo Finance compiled the responses of sponsors to the protest, most of which carried the disappointing theme that they considered the actions of players to be freedom of speech. The official report from Anheuser-Busch reads:

“On Monday night, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch InBev sent Yahoo Finance this statement, which appears to fall into the play-it-safe, neutral category along with Under Armour and Ford:

“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong.  That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality, and freedom of speech.  We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.”

While their politically correct statement seems to be playing it really safe on the issue, their commercial sends a very clear message that not everyone is going to appreciate. Perhaps Anheuser-Busch realized the fine line they were walking with who their customers are. True Americans who bleed red, white, and blue and are boycotting the NFL are the ones who drink their beer, not those who support these anti-patriotic protests.

The company’s recent commercial represents this, bringing the attention back to where it belongs — on the sacrifice of those who fight to defend our flag that entitled sports stars are kneeling before.

When you reach into the cooler this weekend and pop open a cold one while spending time with those you love, Budweiser hopes you think of them and drink one of their beers while not watching football. With that plan in mind, they created a special commercial to commemorate our nation’s independence and many Americans were floored at what they saw.

It’s been a year of beer debacles a major brewing company like Heineken going down the misguided path behind liberal coffee giant Starbucks in mixing politics with their products. Budweiser also decided to mix the two but in a much different way that left their customer base in awe and ensured that they are the staple beverage for beer drinkers at cookouts across the country.

Right Wing News reports:

If this doesn’t make you bleed red, white, and blue for the rest of the year, I don’t  know what will. I mean, what’s more American than beer, Marines, Star Wars and helping veterans?

Star Wars star Adam Driver (better known as Kylo Ren) is a Marine veteran who has achieved his dream of becoming an actor. Now, he wants to give back, with the help of Budweiser’s “Folds Of Honor” program.

Budweiser created a docu-movie of sort in their moving ad that really tugs at the heartstrings of every country-loving patriot in the country. Driver is seen traveling across the country to meet up the real daughter of an actual wounded Army vet, John Williams, who had been severely injured during a training exercise. The hero’s daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, is currently studying to become a nurse and had written into the “Folds of Honor” program in hopes of getting a scholarship to help facilitate her dreams.

“Because of his injury, Williams was not able to go overseas and was medically discharged,” Right Wing News explains. “His daughter has been forced to work 40 hours a week to pay for her final year of school, which is going to cost $44,000. In her letter, Hayley explains that the weight she carries is so great that she may not be able to finish her final year of schooling.”

While Heineken preaches to red-blooded Americans about “open borders” on their bottles, Budweiser took the patriotic approach rather than using divisive political rhetoric to sell beer. The sales should speak for themselves in that Heineken lost a huge portion of their customer base and Budweiser reinstated they’re truly the “king of beers.”

Here is what the Heineken bottle reads:

Here’s To An Open World

To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.

Open Your World.

While Heineken thinks that what unites people is open borders, Budweiser understands that true red, white, and blue patriotism is what America really needs right now. That means doing more for those who fought and sacrificed for this country, than those who cross the border illegally. There are homeless, hurting veterans that need our attention and help before refugees and illegal immigrants. If liberals really cared about coming together and unifying people, their concern would be for those who defended their right to complain about “open borders.”

While we don’t get paid to promote any beer brand at Freedom Daily, you can bet that we’ll be buying a brew with real American values and not one with an agenda to push, like Heineken. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day, drinks responsibly, and supports a brand that backs America and our heroes who fought for this country.


There's A Job Which Will Pay You To Drink Beer Every Week

There's A Job Which Will Pay You To Drink Beer Every Week


To some people, the 'perfect job' doesn't exist. We all manage to find something that makes us despise going to work, no matter how good the job might seem to outsiders.

Perhaps perfection is impossible to find in certain careers, but if that is the case for you, you're just in the wrong profession.

For example, instead of a nine-to-five in an office, or lugging bricks around a construction site, you could be that lucky bastard who spends his Fridays as a professional beer taster.




Meantime Brewing Company is looking for someone to join its team on a part-time basis to try its new products and give feedback. Think Barney Gumble from The Simpsons but on a wage.

Obviously it's not a case of being so far gone that 'any old shit will do', or walking into a pub and asking for the cheapest lager, so you will have to know your onions.

You'll have to be passionate about beer, too, which I'm sure most of you are, but you'll also need to know about hops, wheat, malt and all that stuff that the casual boozer might not consider. You'll also have to understand the market, which is more than just knowing which will get freshers tipsy the quickest.

The job advert says: "Have you ever dreamt of being paid to drink beer? Well, that could soon become a reality as we're looking for beer lovers to earn a living, tasting new and innovative beers. Yes, this could just be the best job in the world."


You'd only be required to work three hours each week, on Friday mornings, but is there a better way to start the weekend? The salary is 'competitive... with beer benefits', of course, which is effectively pre-drinks for a day drinking session.

If you wish to apply, Meantime Brewing Company explained how on LinkedIn. The message read: "Please write a 30-word post on LinkedIn as to why you should get the job. Feel free to use video or photos and be sure to include the hashtag #pickmemeantime on your LinkedIn post, too, so that we can see your entry! We'll then review your profile and shortlist 3 candidates for a final beer-tasting round."

The question, really, is why haven't you already applied? Go, go, go.

To determine the best cities for Oktoberfest celebrations, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 100 most populated U.S. cities across three key dimensions: 1) Oktoberfest Traditions, 2) Costs and 3) Safety & Accessibility.

We evaluated those dimensions using 23 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the best conditions for celebrating Oktoberfest.

Finally, we determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its total score and used the resulting scores to rank-order the cities in our sample.

Got all that? Good.

German Man Smashes WR Carrying 29 Loaded Beer Steins At One Time

German Man Smashes WR Carrying 29 Loaded Beer Steins At One Time

Meet Oliver Struempfel. When you say “Hold my beer,” Oliver asks, “How many?” That’s because our boy Oli here is beer-holding freak of nature. This German man has set the world record for carrying beer steins. We take you to In Bavaria, because where else would we take you for a beer stein carrying competition. Home to Oktoberfest is where Struempfel accomplished the incomprehensible accomplishment of successfully carrying 29 steins, which is more than 152 lbs of beer and glass, across 40 meters and setting them down. Oliver had started with 31 tankards, but 31, had one glass fell at the last minute and another lost more than 10% of its contents, which is against the rules of Maßkrugtragen – the art of beer stein carrying. He smashed the previous record of 25 jugs, which he himself back in 2014.


Why can’t my waiter come to my table like this?


 Not all heroes wear capes.

“I first did 27, because I wanted to be sure and then at the end I said, ‘Let’s add another one and get over 30,’” Strumpfel told Reuters. “Unfortunately it didn’t quite work, but having managed to put 29 down…I think it’s amazing.”


The 'Trust Chug' Is The New Drinking Game Where Losing Means Your Friend Dies

The 'Trust Chug' Is The New Drinking Game Where Losing Means Your Friend Dies


 Drink up, Billy Buck Roscoe. Your friend in the beer helmet's life depends on it.




A bizarre video has emerged of a stark naked man walking into a local shop and casually helping himself to two bottles of beer.


CCTV Footage from Poland is reported to show the shoplifter sauntering into the store in broad daylight in the small town of Suwalki, northeast Poland. The nude guest opens the fridge and picks out three bottles that take his fancy, leaving a shop assistant to shocked to take action.


According to local police, the 33-year-old nude then went to another shop where he pinched a packet of cigarettes before heading to a bar to order some food. He was arrested while sitting outside waiting for his order and swigging beer, it’s not clear if he was still naked at this point.


After sobering up in the town’s drunk tank overnight the man showed some repentance for his thievery. Police say he burst out crying and returned to the shop to pay for the beer he had taken. Police spokeswoman Eliza Sawko added he claimed to have no idea why he had stolen the beer nor why he was naked.






Australian Man Checks Single Can Of Beer After Airline Refuses To Let Him Bring It On Flight

Australian Man Checks Single Can Of Beer After Airline Refuses To Let Him Bring It On Flight


I’ve never heard of Emu Export beer, but it must be some rather tasty shit if one dude checked a single can of it as his luggage on a recent Qantas Airways flight.

Well, either that or he’s a severe alcoholic.

According to Barstool Sports, an Australian man named Dean was scheduled to take a flight from Melbourne to Perth Saturday, but the crew at Qantas wouldn’t let him board the plane with a can of Emu Export, so he decided to have some fun with them by checking it as a piece of luggage.

Yup, just a single can of beer.


Photo: Facebook

Well, son of a bitch, the lone can of lager made the trip in one piece, and it even wound up being the first item unloaded onto the belt at the baggage claim in Perth.


“My mate works at the airport and we hatched the plan as a laugh,” Dean said. “I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end, but when it did, it was sent out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage handlers obviously appreciated it.”

Dean said he was prepared to file a lost luggage claim if the can of suds didn’t arrive, but there was no need.

“Sure enough there she was, alone on the carousel proudly making her way around,” he said. “And there I was in my flanno and RMs to greet her. It was perfection.”

Simon Smith was crossing the road in Reading when the out of control bus veered off the road and straight into him, the impact smashing the windscreen of the bus and throwing him hard to the ground.

According to the BBC, Smith suffered only minor injuries and said he feels “lucky to be alive”.


Basketball Coaches Fired For Using High School Bus To Go On Beer Run

Basketball Coaches Fired For Using High School Bus To Go On Beer Run

In what some may consider to be the most egregious case of injustice ever, two high school basketball coaches were canned for going on a beer run. Sure they used a high school bus to grab some cold brewskis and left a bunch of kids unsupervised, but c’mon, they’re high school kids, not kindergartners. Who’s mother didn’t go on beer runs when they were small children? We all turned out just fine.

We take you to Warner, Oklahoma where two basketball coaches from Tishomingo High School left their team of high school players so tthat they could purchase alcohol. The team was attending a basketball camp at Connors State College when the coaches had a hankering for some beer.

“We noticed that the school bus was gone, but (the coach) had told us to stay in our dorms and so we proceeded to do that,” said Kyle Miller, one of the Tishomingo High School basketball players who was on the trip. The coaches probably should have taken a page out of “The Bad News Bears” and given the kids some beers in exchange for their silence. Miller said the team had no idea what happened to the bus until the next day. Apparently, the clerk from a convenience store ratted on the coaches and alerted officials from Connors State College. Way to appreciate your customers. The coaches were fired the very next day.

“We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go that camp, because we had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day,” said Miller. Well, that part sucks. If the coaches had to be fired why not do it after the basketball camp to not fuck over the kids.

Ummm, the coaches took the bus to the basketball camp. They didn’t have their own vehicle to go on the beer run so they innocently borrowed the school bus to get some beer, the elixir of life. You’re not gonna Uber a ride to a convenience store to get beers when you’ve got a perfectly capable vehicle right outside your door. I’m sorry, I thought this was America where it was legal to crack open a cold one with the boys. Why isn’t there a GoFundMe started for these two beer-loving coaches to assist them from making one itsy-bitsy mistake?

Indianapolis Parents Arrested For Taking Baby To Bar All While The Mom Offered Sex For Beer

Indianapolis Parents Arrested For Taking Baby To Bar All While The Mom Offered Sex For Beer


Not exactly parents of the year, eh?

Let’s all talk about 45-year-old Michael Trosclair and 42-year-old Shari Tremba. And let’s talk about the fact that these parents not only took their baby to a bar, but Shari was also seen drinking and smoking…while breastfeeding her baby. Oh, and then Shari solicited customers for beer. In other words, she was offering sex for free beers. If that’s not trash I don’t know what is.

But it gets even more bizarre. Shari is a ‘life coach,’ while Michael is a former pastor. Holy hell, that’s not going to get you into heaven, buddy. It all kicked off early last week when Shari and Michael decided to take their baby to the Wild Beaver Saloon after midnight.

Via Alabama.com

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were dispatched to the saloon at 12:38 a.m. Friday on a report of a woman soliciting customers for beer and breastfeeding an infant while drinking. Sgt. Ty Van Wagner said he arrived to find Tremba standing outside of a roped-off area at the bar, holding a cup and standing near a stroller. “The baby was quiet and sleeping,” Van Wagner wrote in his report.

The officer said he asked Tremba who the baby belonged to, and she said the baby was hers. Her answer was followed by a swig of beer. Police went on to say that Tremba’s “breath and person” smelled of an alcoholic beverage and that she had to be asked several times who she was and where she was from.

A witness pulled an officer aside and said that Tremba had been at the bar for quite a while and was offering sex to different individuals who would go inside and get her a beer.

What a classy bunch.

Shari and Michael were both charged with neglect of a dependent in a situation that endangers the dependent, and public intoxication. And don’t worry, folks, the baby was taken to a hospital and showed no signs of intoxication. The baby was also taken in by the department of children services.

4-Mile Beer Pipeline Installed For Largest Metal Music Festival In The World

4-Mile Beer Pipeline Installed For Largest Metal Music Festival In The World

Pipelines are a pretty polarizing and explosive topic these days. But there’s one pipeline that might just make everyone happy – a beer pipeline.

The Wacken Open Air (WOA) Festival in Germany is the largest metal music festival in the world with an estimated 75,000 fans who will attend the three-day headbanging event. With all of those metalheads rocking out to over 150 bands including Megadeath, Alice Cooper, and Marilyn Manson from August 3-5 there will be a great demand for beer. A demand so overwhelming that the festival is installing a 4.3-mile beer pipeline.

The festival believes that each person will consume 5.1 liters of beer over the three days. Take that figure and times it by 75,000 fans and you’ll need 382,500 LITERS OF BEER!

Instead of having a constant caravan of beer trucks headed to the festival, a beer pipeline is being installed. This pipeline actually is more eco-friendly and cost-effective than trucks driving to the festival.

The new beer pipeline will have enough pressure to pour six beers in six seconds. Besides beer, there will also be a pipeline for water, as well as a pipeline for taking away liquid waste from the site. Let’s hope they don’t mix up the tubes.


They are even burying the pipeline underground so the beer stays cold. Plus it’s probably because if that pipeline was above ground there would definitely be some beer pirates poking holes in it and siphoning off delicious free beer.






How did your buddy die? He drowned. In beer…

Step aside Beer Bong, These guys present to you, the Bucket Chug!

How do you like your beer? These guys like it with a little extra FOAM:

I have learned a lot during my time on the internet. One thing internet commentators hate — wasted beer. That and if you every drink anything “cheap” they let you know that IT IS ALL PISS! Here is what one person said about the video: About the dumbest challenge I’ve seen what rightful persons going to waste that much beer. Followed up by someone saying “who gives a shit it was cheap ass pussy beer anyways. Lets see them do it with a Stella.” 

Other people are worried about the copycats: Yeah fucking morons, let’s teach our kids another challenge to do, that will drown them!! I love beer, but this is fucking ridiculous ??

Here's How Much It Costs To Grab A Beer Around The World

Here's How Much It Costs To Grab A Beer Around The World

Deutsche Bank analysts collected data on the prices of various services for a recent report to clients. Among them, they included how much it costs to get a beer (500 mL or 1 pint) in a neighborhood pub in an expat area of a given city in 2017.

Beers are the cheapest in Prague ($1.30), Johannesburg ($1.70), and Lisbon, Portugal ($2.00). On the flip side, they are the most expensive in Oslo, Norway ($9.90), Singapore ($9.00), and Hong Kong ($7.70).

As for American cities, New York City was the most expensive, with beer costing $7.40 on average. Boston wasn't too far behind, at $7.20.

Check out the full list below.




As we become more submerged in beer culture, it's a given that some untruths can slip into your hop-soaked consciousness. It's all good. It's not like you're one of those people who believes the Earth is flat just because you read it on Facebook (or are you?!). You can be forgiven for thinking that the fast-talking neckbeard with the cellar knows everything about aging. But maybe, just maybe, he's full of crap.

In the interest of making your world more well rounded, we hit up a handful of Certified Cicerones, beer writers, and even scientists to debunk some of the most pervasive beer myths.
