You’ve probably experienced the spark of creativity that comes with having a moderate amount of alcohol in your system. In fact, some studies show that a blood alcohol level of .075% makes your more creative. Problem Solver Beer is an Indian Pale Ale that’s designed to hit this sweet spot to uncover your hidden genius.

It even includes a scale on the bottle so you know how much to drink depending on your sex and weight so that you hit that magic number. They’re also putting together a club where people can share this special brew and work together to solve local issues in their communities.

Gimmicky? You bet. But I’m willing to try out this experiment…for science.

These incredible Krampus beer steins are currently a fully-funded kickstarter so if you pledge there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have one of these for your beer. There’s a painted version for $60 and a plain version for $48, both of which hold 30 ounces and are set to ship in May. You’ll be able to break them out next Christmas, but these are so cool, you’re going to want to use them all year long.

It’s a challenge for guys with mustaches to keep their whiskers out of their beer, so the Whisker Dam is here to keep that ‘stache dry. It’s a little metal plate that fits over the edge of your glass right where your mustache would otherwise go for a dip. From the product page:

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

This might be the most useful and important product of the 21st century.

Delta is upgrading your in-flight beer choices with 7 new craft beers. The exact choices vary by route, but they can include Ballast Point Brewing Company, Blue Point Brewing Company, Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Newburyport Brewing Company, and Atlanta’s SweetWater Brewery.

No matter where you’re flying domestically, you’ll also be able to enjoy Samuel Adams. Pricing wasn’t stated which makes us nervous considering how much you pay for one of those itty bitty bottles of booze. Depending on just how your flight goes, it might be worth it no matter the price.

Brew

Brewie touts itself as “the world’s first fully automated brewery” (which isn’t actually true) and it’s currently up for funding on indiegogo. The unit is entirely self-contained and sits on your counter like any other appliance.

“Brewie Pads” include all the ingredients you need measured out and neatly packaged along with a RFID card that the machine scans so it knows how to prepare the recipe. There’s even a countdown clock and a smartphone app so you can control your batch remotely and keep tabs on much longer you have to wait to have a cold one.

They offer different types of kits for those of you who are new to homebrewing, but they claim that those who have experience brewing can use it to experiment with their recipes. Needless to say, we’re a bit skeptical.

Still, if you value speed over quality and are willing to take an expensive risk, you can secure a Brewie for a pledge of $1,399 for a Beginner Pack.
