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.

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.

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.

You have to find a way to stand out when you’re looking for a job, and a 4-pack of ale personalized with your resume will probably do the trick.

The idea belongs to graphic designer Brennan Gleason who has combined his talent for design with his hobby of creating his own ales into the perfect resume. He notes:

One of my self promotion pieces. Resume + Beer = Gleason’s Resum-Ale. I brewed up a nice blonde ale, so I figured it would awesome to use it to promote myself and my work. Box contains the resume and the bottles each contain a piece of my work.

Planet beers

Have you had a drink from every planet in our solar system? You’ll be able to answer “yes” to that question soon if you imbibe Bell’s Brewery’s Planet Series of beers. They’ve developed the flavor for each of the brews based on Gustav Holst’s The Planets, Op. 32. The orchestral suite was completed in 1916, and I imagine Holst never thought it would inspire beer. The descriptions are as follows:

“Mars, The Bringer of War” – Double IPA

“Venus, The Bringer of Peace” – A Blonde Ale brewed with honey, apricot, vanilla and cardamom

“Mercury, The Winged Messenger” – A Belgian Single

“Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity” – A malt forward Brown Ale

“Saturn, The Bringer of Old Age” – A Bourbon Barrel-aged Barleywine

“Uranus, The Magician” – Black Double IPA

“Neptune, The Mystic” – A beer inspired by Dr. Bell’s Medicinal Stout, one of Larry Bell’s homebrews that also helped inspire Eccentric Ale

You’ll be able to taste The Planets starting in August. Listen to the music that inspired it after the break…
