pedro pascal pouring beer

While we may not get to watch Pedro Pascal in season 5 of Game of Thrones, he was more than happy to tap the first keg of the one of the new Game Of Thrones beers by Ommegang Brewery during the #‎ValarHourSDCC party at the Omni.

I find it fitting that he was pouring Valar Morghulis.

I think this week’s “unnecessary spending” award goes to one “uhcougars1151″ from Houston, Texas. Recently, the Redditor indulged in some imbibing and used Uber for a ride to a nearby bar@mdash;and when I say nearby, I mean that Google Maps estimated that the 82-foot journey would’ve taken approximately one minute to walk. Maybe longer if he kept stumbling and falling.

And the cost? Well, despite using the “25 percent off uberX this summer” deal, the total fare came to $4.28. He admits:

“After a night of fairly heavy drinking, I woke up to find I took a very unnecessary cab ride.”

Yeah, I think unnecessary is a bit of an understatement.

Well, I’m not too sure how William here is able to pour a beer with his forehead. I’m thinking witchcraft. Sorcery. Weird science-y stuff.

That, or he has a very sticky forehead.

This is just the thing to have on hand next time the Doctor wanders into your kitchen looking for something to drink. It looks just like a sonic screwdriver, but pop off the tip and it’s a handy dandy bottle opener. Is there anything the sonic can’t do?

Well…Wood. It doesn’t do wood.

If you’re planning on heading to the Minnesota Twins’ Target Field for the Major League Baseball All-Star festivities next week, you’re in for a treat. The stadium is debuting all-new, self-serve beer vending machines, called DraftServ. The machines (which are the creation of Anheuser-Busch and Delaware North) are stocked with four popular beers that you can access easily: Bud and Bud Light, Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale.

Patrons line up, show their ID to an employee and then pre-load a card for $10 or $20. The cards can be then used to pour up to 48 ounces of their beer of choice every 15 minutes (which would make getting hammered at the ballpark a little more difficult).

Jerry Jacobs Jr., principal of Delaware North, noted that the vending machine allows patrons the opportunity to have greater control of what they’re drinking. “If they want half of a cup, that’s all they will pay for,” said Jacobs.

Dogfish Brewery is definitely thinking out of the box with their upcoming Dogfish Inn located in Milton, Delaware. It was designed by Studio Tack based out of Brooklyn, NY to capture the bygone days of family vacations, and of course, beer.

Each room is equipped with a mini-fridge stocked with locally made snacks, and there’s barware to enjoy the beers you bring back from our brewery and brewpub. Retro American-made beach chairs and Apolis tote bags are ready for trips to the local beaches.

You can even snuggle under a wool Dogfish blanket created by Woolrich and enjoy Dogfish Chicory Coffee before you start your day.

Jaws is 39 years old this year and to celebrate, Narragansett Beer has decided to bring back the retro-style cans that were seen in the film. In fact, all ll 12, 18, and 30-packs of their 12 ounce cans which will go retro. Now you can crush a can just like Captain Sam Quint.

Synek1

It’s great to have a Keurig machine on your counter to brew your morning cup of coffee, but it’d be even better if you had a machine that could give you a nice mug of beer. The folks at Synek agree, which is why they’ve created a countertop appliance that will keep beer fresh so you can dispense it at your leisure.

It holds about two growlers worth of whatever beer you choose. You just dispense the beer from the source driectly into a specially designed bag that will keep it fresh for about 30 days. It maintains the right temperature and pressure so you can just walk up and have a nice cold one anytime.

They’re currently seeking funding on kickstarter where a pledge of $299 will secure you a Synek beer dispenser when they ship next April.

Currently, you can only get Duff beer at the Simpsons theme park or outside the US, but that is about to change if the rumors are true. It all comes as a result of this blurry image from the Licensing Expo that was held last week. No details or availability dates were released, but if the image is to be believed, we’re going to be able to kick back with an officially licensed Duff beer in the states sometime soon.
