Beer

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.

kirby beer 2

To say Jack Kirby is legendary would be an understatement. He worked alongside Stan Lee to co-create a long list of characters in the Marvel universe and beyond. to celebrate the late artist’s birthday, Shmaltz Brewery is teaming up with Hero Initiative to raise funds for the non-profit organization. Shmaltz came up with limited edition beers called King Kirby with labels featuring Kirby’s image. Paul Harding provided the art.

The King Kirby Ale will debut at a Shmalz-hosted event on Saturday, August 28th, in Clifton Park, New York, and attendees will be able to meet comics creators, taste the Kirby beer, and purchase cases of it. Proceeds from the event will go to the Hero Initiative. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.

So, can you guess what kind of beer Groot likes to drink? If you said, “I am Groot,” you’d be partially right, but the answer is actually Groot Beer. Now you can show off your love for Groot’s favorite beverage with this awesome Groot Beer T-shirt. And once you pick up the shirt, you can head to Knowhere for a quick pint with Groot himself. Sounds like a plan!

Start making room in your cupboard to hoard new Hobbit-inspired beer from Fish Brewing, Ocean Brands, and BevLink. My guess is everyone involved looked at the success of the Ommegang Game of Thrones beers and decided to give it a shot.

The trio of beers are at 10% ABV and feature Smaug, Gollum, and Bolg in the titles and on the labels. Here are the official descriptions from BevLink:

Gollum Precious Pils: A strong Imperial Pils, with flavors as smooth and crafty as Gollum himself. Like the ring which Gollum pursued for the rest of his life, his “precious” pils, if your quest leads you to it, could extend your life too! (at least we’d like to think so) It will, at a minimum, make your journey a little more enjoyable!

Smaug Stout: Smaug Stout is styled after a classic Russian Imperial Stout, but with a subtle hint of Habanero chilis to remind you of the fire and danger awaiting you in your journey to The Lonely Mountain. Pronounced notes of Coffee and Chocolate balanced with Northwest Hops and a touch of heat produce an exceptional imperial stout, a worthy reward for your hard-fought journey.

Bolg Belgian Tripel: An Orc chieftain who ruled for 150 years, Bolg would drink his grog of choice and no one would tell him otherwise – a flavorful strong Belgian Tripel. Some said it refined an otherwise gruesome character

While I think they missed an opportunity to make classier looking labels, the premise is fun.

Distribution of the beer will begin in the west (it happens to be because of location, but I love that it’s also a Middle-earth reference), but they hope to make the brews available throughout the United States.

See the Gollum and Bolg labels after the break.

It’s allliivvveee! Yep, beer is a living thing, and the Sierra Nevada brewing company shot some footage of their Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale being made in four open fermenters over the course of six days to highlight that fact. It’s pretty incredible to watch the so-called beer monster grow so quickly, and you’ll be pretty astounded when you watch this clip.

lone-star-tick

The Lone Star tick is an annoying little bloodsucker that’s indigenous to the Midwest and the Eastern U.S. Its bite, believe it or not, has the unique side effect of turning its human victims into vegetarians.

Seriously.

Apparently this little guy contains a certain kind of sugar called Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose, or alpha-gal, that’s also found in red meat and some dairy products. When a person is bitten, that person’s immune system creates antibodies to that particular sugar, thus resulting in a mild or downright severe allergic reaction to meaty dishes. A doctor in Virginia noted that he sees “two to three new cases every week.” He also notes that some patients recover over time.

Now, I know this sounds crazy, but I’m thinking this might be a conspiracy between cows and ticks. I mean, it’s the only thing that makes sense, right? It has to be the work of the Illu-Moo-nati!

Carrying beer to a friend’s house usually means relying on those flimsy cardboard containers for ferrying your precious cargo. Instead, you can be sure you beer arrives safely with this beer briefcase. It holds 6 bottles nestled in foam so there’s no chance they’ll break, and you’ll look like a spy on a mission when you walk in the door. Maybe you should handcuff it to your wrist.
