Each beer included in the series is inspired by a different Lovecraft story and, as the name implies, the newest ale is an homage to Lovecraft’s The White Ship.

Here’s what Narragansett Beer has to say about the brew: [click to continue…]

If your passions include researching and drinking beer, there could be a job waiting for you at the Smithsonian. The institution is looking to hire “a professional historian / scholar to conduct archival and field research for a new initiative on American brewing history, with special emphasis on the craft industry.”

The three-year appointment will reportedly pay $64k per year and will be funded by the Brewers Association as part of a the Smithsonian Food History project. The position will involve “working to expand the museum’s collections, including artifacts such as archival documents, business records, branding and logo development, label sketches, [and] brewery floor plans”, and will include traveling across the nation.

Ideal applicants for the job will possess an advanced degree in American business, brewing, food, cultural, or similar specialization within history.

Oreos have transformed into yet another flavor. This time it’s choco chip, which is described as being a lot like Golden Oreos, but with some chocolate speckles throughout.

Buzzfeed reports that the new limited time Oreos, which are already in stores, evoke nostalgia for cookies of days gone by, while the taste has been compared to Cookie Crisp cereal, birthday cake and nothing (but in a “comforting way”).

McDonald’s decision to offer all-day breakfast has helped it get out of a lengthy sales slump, so it’s no surprise that they are now expanding the number of items offered.

Previously, the menu was pretty limited. However, the new, improved all-day menu will include a host of items, such as:

Egg McMuffin, Sausage McMuffin with Egg, Sausage McMuffin, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, Sausage Biscuit with Egg, Sausage Biscuit, Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles, Sausage McGriddles, Hotcakes, Hotcakes and Sausage, Sausage Burrito, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait, and Hashbrowns

The new all-day breakfast menu is slated to launch nationwide in September, which will be great news for anyone who loves fast food breakfast but hates mornings.
