The craft beer movement is certainly going strong, but the list of the 20 most popular beers in America still reads like a list of the 20 most popular bottled waters in America.

The amount of Bud Light sold here is truly staggering. As they say, most macro breweries probably spill more beer on the floor each day than most craft breweries produce in an entire year.

Newcastle Brown Ale has teamed up with The History Channel to release a special brew that celebrates the Vikings season 3 premiere. They also made a funny commercial to go along with the beer.

It shows a misguided attempt to get some product placement into the show despite pretty massive issues with historical accuracy.

Watch it after the break.

Dark Horse is celebrating Hellboy‘s 21st birthday properly with this limited edition Right Hand of Doom Red Ale created by Rogue Ales. The birthday brew is scheduled to debut on Friday at Things From Another World Comics  during a signing with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, along with Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Wood (Rebels).

“When Dark Horse Comics published the first Hellboy story 21 years ago, I never thought there’d be a Hellboy beer,” Mignola said in a press release. “But I really can’t imagine a better time for Rogue to introduce the Right Hand of Doom beer. If Hellboy was real, I guess he’d finally be able to buy me a beer.”

Get all the deets after the break.

How many beers are left in the keg? Is the beer at the “perfect temperature”? Don’t look to the kegerator for answers. The kegerator is an idiot.

A startup company called “PicoBrew” is looking to change that with a smart kegerator that they’re funding through Kickstarter. Dubbed “KegSmarts”, the machine is equipped with an OLED display and a microprocessor that serve to maintain craft beer temperature, track freshness, display details about style and alcohol content and, of course, let you know how many servings remain. KegSmarts also lives up to its name by offering a social mapping feature that can suggest other craft beers available nearby while also notifying your friends when you’ve installed a new keg.

A $250 single-tap DIY version is available for those who want to retrofit the smart component to existing kegerators, while the complete KegSmarts will set you back $899 (or $1,099 for double-tap). Needless to say, the Kickstarter campaign has been a huge hit, and as of this writing, the company has already surpassed it’s $100,000 goal with 25 days to go.

This mouth watering brew is perfect to share with your loved one on Valentine’s Day.

It’s a brand new amber ale from Second Self Beer Company, aptly named Bleeding Heart, that combines Peruvian cocoa nibs and whole Madagascar vanilla beans to give it the essence of red velvet cake.

“There’s no seasonal beer for Valentine’s Day,” notes Second Self owner Jason Santamaria.

Don’t expect Bleeding Heart to taste like dessert however. From Food And Wine:

That would be way too heavy,” Santamaria says. The result is quite dry and meant to pair with everything from cake to steak. “Vanillin, the compound found in vanilla, is also in oak barrels and in charred or roasted things,” he says. “So that little bit of char on the steak really brings out the vanilla in the beer—but not in a sweet way.”

Unfortunately, if you don’t live in Georgia, you’ll have trouble getting your hands on this delicious draft. If you do, well, there’s more good news. Second Self plans to expand their Valentine’s Day lineup in the coming years with “barrel-aged Old Heart, Bitter Heart (made with extra cocoa) and Wild Heart (a sour version).”
