Beer

big-growler

Growlers typically come in two sizes: 32 ounce and 64 ounce. However, if you need to transport more beer than a growler but less beer than a keg—that’s where the 128-ounce “Juggernaut” from Drink Tanks comes in. It’s cast from stainless steel and features double wall vacuum insulation.

You can also order one that comes with a CO2-powered “Kegulator” cap, which will help keep the beer pressurized. It even features a dispensing tap.

Some people collect quarters representing each state and display them proudly on wall-mounted maps. However, if you prefer to spend those quarters on vacations and beer, the new Beer Cap Map is for you.

Crafted from 1/4 inch laser cut veneered plywood, the map will help you preserve the memories of beers gone by—displaying the caps of bottles consumed around the country. In addition, it features etched state capitals, small holes for easy hang-ability and a patent pending “cap capture” design which will snugly hold your cap collection in place.

If you prefer to drink in a particular state, the manufacturer is also creating individual maps of all 50, and hopes to have the complete collection available by May.

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.

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).”

Oregon is home to a bunch of top-notch breweries. From Deschutes to Rogue, there are just too many to list. So, if you’re like me, and you’re a fan of all the brews that The Beaver State’s pumping out, then you should probably pick up The Oregon Pint.

This 16-ounce glass is handblown, and it features a tiny Mt. Hood at the bottom. Believe it or not,  the creators of the Pint utilized data from United States Geological Survey to create a mini-Mt. Hood that’s astoundingly accurate.
