Let’s just say that you have a rabbit and that you also like beer. Why not put that rabbit to work? YouTuber Wallace TheMadKing explains:

This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.

And with that, you all set off to start building carts for your dogs, cats, hamsters, goldfish…

In terms of flavor, Bud Light is in stiff competition with a water fountain. In terms of advertising, they’re hard to beat. Naturally, they pull out all the stops for the Super Bowl.

This year they went above and beyond for their #UpForWhatever campaign. Apparently “whatever” can include navigating a a human-sized Pac-Man maze. Oh yes.

Sure, prohibition is over, but if you’d still like to check out a super cool (and super sneaky) “speakeasy” all you need to do is fly on over to Shanghai. There’s a sandwich shop there called The Press, and towards the back you’ll find a totally unassuming (wink, wink) Coca-Cola vending machine—yep, it’s actually a totally hush-hush, secret entrance for “Flask,” a fun and up-scale speakeasy.

The interior features a modern design with prohibition-era design elements such as vintage sofas, 25-liter whiskey bottles and old-school copper-colored lights. The architect who designed the bar, Alberto Caiola, noted:

the fun, lighthearted feel, the bright colors and lighting [in The Press] —within a few steps, these elements segue into a mysterious space with warm, muted lighting and the murmurs of bar patrons to invite further curiosity.

Check out some more pictures of the speakeasy after the break…

You’ve probably experienced the spark of creativity that comes with having a moderate amount of alcohol in your system. In fact, some studies show that a blood alcohol level of .075% makes your more creative. Problem Solver Beer is an Indian Pale Ale that’s designed to hit this sweet spot to uncover your hidden genius.

It even includes a scale on the bottle so you know how much to drink depending on your sex and weight so that you hit that magic number. They’re also putting together a club where people can share this special brew and work together to solve local issues in their communities.

Gimmicky? You bet. But I’m willing to try out this experiment…for science.

These incredible Krampus beer steins are currently a fully-funded kickstarter so if you pledge there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have one of these for your beer. There’s a painted version for $60 and a plain version for $48, both of which hold 30 ounces and are set to ship in May. You’ll be able to break them out next Christmas, but these are so cool, you’re going to want to use them all year long.

Delta is upgrading your in-flight beer choices with 7 new craft beers. The exact choices vary by route, but they can include Ballast Point Brewing Company, Blue Point Brewing Company, Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Newburyport Brewing Company, and Atlanta’s SweetWater Brewery.

No matter where you’re flying domestically, you’ll also be able to enjoy Samuel Adams. Pricing wasn’t stated which makes us nervous considering how much you pay for one of those itty bitty bottles of booze. Depending on just how your flight goes, it might be worth it no matter the price.

Brew

Brewie touts itself as “the world’s first fully automated brewery” (which isn’t actually true) and it’s currently up for funding on indiegogo. The unit is entirely self-contained and sits on your counter like any other appliance.

“Brewie Pads” include all the ingredients you need measured out and neatly packaged along with a RFID card that the machine scans so it knows how to prepare the recipe. There’s even a countdown clock and a smartphone app so you can control your batch remotely and keep tabs on much longer you have to wait to have a cold one.

They offer different types of kits for those of you who are new to homebrewing, but they claim that those who have experience brewing can use it to experiment with their recipes. Needless to say, we’re a bit skeptical.

Still, if you value speed over quality and are willing to take an expensive risk, you can secure a Brewie for a pledge of $1,399 for a Beginner Pack.
