dark barrel latte

If you like lattes and stout beers, Starbucks’ latest test product may appeal to you. They’ve made the Dark Barrel Latte available in select markets like Columbus, Ohio, and the drink features a flavored syrup that tastes like dark beers such as Guinness. The latte is completely non-alchoholic and topped with whipped cream and dark caramel sauce.

Temperature based color-changing drinkware is one of those things that’s always fun. Add a geeky element to it and give people options for hot or cold drinks, and you have these new Power Up color changing exclusive mugs and pint glasses from ThinkGeek.

For you coffee drinkers, there’s the 8-Bit Legendary Hero Heat-Change Mug which loses power as your heated drink cools down or empties. If you drink coffee or tea, you’ll have a perfect visual representation of just how much energy you have or need.

In the case of the Power-Up Heart Pint Glass 4-Pack, it’s all about keeping your cool. Whether your drink is alcoholic or not, a cooler drink is more refreshing and deep red hearts are what you look for.

Both are in stock now. Check out the pint glasses after the break.

You can absolutely judge these bottles of beer by their labels since each has been designed with the Pantone color that perfectly matches the different brews. The designs are the work of Spanish ad agency Txaber and even feature a specially chosen font, HipstelveticaFontFamily. It was created by Spanish typographer José Gomes and you can download it for free.

beer-carrying-record

Leave it to a German to know how to handle a precarious stack of beer mugs. German waiter Oliver Struempfel carried 27 one-liter mugs over an astounding 40-meters of beer-drenched barroom flooring to claim the world record for beer carrying. Yes, that’s apparently a thing. Well, congratulations, Oliver. Prost!

beer can cosplay

It’s true that you never know what you’ll see at Dragon Con. Cosplayers can get resourceful and turn to materials you wouldn’t expect – like this whole Star Wars crew. They crafted armor, accessories, and even Han in Carbonite from beer cans. I wouldn’t be too surprised if all the beer from these cans was consumed during Dragon Con.

beer jelly

It’s all well and good to stick to fruit-infused jellies and jams for your morning biscuits and toast, but are you ready for something different? Because Potlicker Kitchen sells Beer Jelly. No, really.

You can get the product in a three pack that includes the following flavors: India Pale Ale, Green Mountain Ale, and Apricot Ale. They recommend serving it with breads, cheese, or using it to glaze meats. I think it would be particularly splendid for the last item on that list.

North America really likes their beer if this chart is to be believed. It shows what each country in the world chooses to drink most often from beer to wine to spirits and we are firmly in beer territory.

The map was put together by Ghost in the Data who compiled information from the World Health Organization to determine regional favorites.

Not only did they map out what is popular where, but they’ve got it broken down even further on their site. There you can see how much of each type of alcohol is consumed by the people of each country in an average week, proving we all kick back with a nice cold one on a pretty regular basis.

peacemaker

Austin Beerworks loves beer and they know you love beer, so they’ve created the beer multipack to end all multipacks.

For a limited time, they’re selling a 99 pack of beer Peacemaker Anytime Ale for $99.

If you think this is a dream, I assure it’s not. But, you will have to do a little sleuthing to get yourself one of these cases.

They’re only releasing a limited number, but you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out what stores are stocked with the packs.

They also made a great little video, which is certainly worth the minute it’ll take you to watch it.

You can check it out after the break.
