Is that life-size R2-D2 fridge to rich for your blood? Not to worry. The R2-D2 or BB-8 Mini Fridge (pictured below) can chill the same amount of beer. It also has a warm setting.

Sure, it won’t bring beers to you like the life-size version, but it does cost about $8,830 less.

Check out the BB-8 fridge after the break…


A pub in Bristol, England called “The Bag Of Nails” has made a name for itself by housing 15 cats for patrons to enjoy.

Needless to say, the place is far from heaven for allergy sufferers, but the owner reports that the reaction is “mostly positive”. The cats were all born in the pub and will sometimes sit in customers’ laps, making this place as much about feline fanaticism as beer.

Arcade Brewery has partnered with Jimmy Palmiotti and Darwyn Cooke to create “The Adventures of Dutch Courage” beer with comic strips emblazoned on each bottle.

The Session Ale is brewed with juniper berries and lemon peel and described as an “easy drinking, malt-forward beer with a subtle gin cocktail quality”.

The comic strip is a twist on the famous Charles Atlas ads, although it recasts the bully as a female beach blond and the weakling as a hipster. Besides adding humor, the comic’s beach setting and retro feel also inspired the flavor, and is intended to “mimic the twists and turns of the story”.

The new ale will be launched on November 18 in four locations that have yet to be announced.

Hit the jump to check out examples of the comic labels.

Is that life-sized R2-D2 fridge that rolls around and delivers drinks to rich for your blood? Well, the same company behind that product also makes a Darth Vader mask cooler. It costs $355, and it effectively chills one canned beverage at a time. Yup, just one.

It’s affordable and practical!

Seriously though, this Han Solo Mini Fridge is probably a better way to go.

Vader Cooler: (¥42,984 or $355.00)

I’ve talked about a good number of bottle and can coolers/koozies in my day, but these “Freaker” versions may be my favorite. They’re like nerdy sweaters or socks for your beer!

These insulated covers are one size fits most and there are seven different styles covering some of your favorite DC super heroes and villains.

See more after the break.

pumpkin cooler

Looking for a way to make your upcoming Halloween party a little more interesting? Then you have to try making this Halloween Pumpkin Cooler from the Tipsy Bartender.

As the video will highlight after the break, all you need to do is to empty out a pumpkin, carve holes in the sides, fill said holes with beers (not Bud Light though…actual beer), and then fill up the interior of the pumpkin with dry ice. The end result is cool looking—and practical.

We seen 3D printing with candy, cheese, and even hummus, but now 3d printing with beer is possible. Well, beer waste anyway.

Driven by a passion for creating eco-friendly materials for 3D printing, US company 3Dom uses leftover hops and barley for their new filament, which is aptly titled “Buzzed”. It can be used in any machine capable of Polylactic acid (PLA) printing and visible grain adds a special charm to the design.

For caffeine addicts, 3Dom also makes coffee-based product called “Wound Up”. Of course.

See how it’s made in the video after the break.

fallout beer

One of the best things about being an adult is the ability to come home at the end of a long day, pour a beer and go blow stuff up in a game to take the edge off. That’s how it is at my house anyway.

With that in mind, Bethesda and Carlsberg UK have teamed up to craft a special beer to mark the upcoming release of Fallout 4.

Fallout Beer is described as a “light coloured pilsner lager, with a refreshing zesty hoppy taste and a floral aroma” and is a 4% alcohol by volume.

Now for the bad news –– it’s only available in the UK and they wont ship it to the US.

But hey, maybe you’ll be able to grab a bottle on eBay.

Ben & Jerry’s has flipped the script in their partnership with Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing to produce Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale ice cream (*drools*). The limited edition frozen treat includes New Belgium Brown Ale ice cream and Salted Caramel Swirls topped off with Fudge Brownies (*more drool*).

The ice cream only contains trace elements of alcohol, but it’s designed to be paired with Belgium/B&J’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale that was released earlier this year. New Belgium’s PR manager, Bryan Simpson, tells Fortune:

“They have the same flavor profile in that you’ve got caramel and brownies going on in both. The pour over, which is how you’re going to experience it, is a scoop of ice cream with beer over it. My inference was it was going to be very sweet – like a root beer float, but the beer is a lot dryer than a root beer would be. The salt plays off the sweet very well.”

The new ice cream flavor will hit shelves in pint-sized containers starting this November and will be available through the holiday season.


Evil clowns, Frankenstein, zombies, and Cthuhlu…oh my! These monster mugs will give you a jolt before the caffeine does.

Etsy shop Kachaktano Mugs has a real talent for paring my nightmares with adult beverages. Working in ceramics for over a decade, his sculpture mugs are inspired by characters from fantasy and horror. Each porcelain creation is hand sculpted and fired at extremely high temperatures (similar to that of the underworld I assume) to provide unbeatable strength while making them food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.
