Beer

beer can burgers

Although beer has long been associated with burgers, the BBQ Pit Boys have developed a Bacon Burger that actually makes the beer can an integral part of the burger recipe. The process involves using the can as a mold to create a bacon-wrapped meatball bowl that is then stuffed with toppings such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, meat chili, and roast beef before being grilled to perfection.

It’s easy to embrace all things Disney when you’re a kid, but there are fewer opportunities once you’re all grown-up. These beer labels let you channel your inner child while you kick back with your favorite adult beverage. There are 12 different labels and they’re all available as free printables. Each label is a nod to a different film or character so you can have fun with names like Looking Glass Lager, No Strings Attached Liars Lager, and Beer Necessities.

Needless to say, the 40mm Bofors Anti-Aircraft gun/40mm Anti-Tank Cannon hybrid makes the keg disappear, and you get to watch the destruction over and over again… following a valuable PSA.

If you have a drink that is better cold than warm, it is only logical that you should use a drink cooler. It is only logical.

There’s also a joke to be made here about Spock and his ability to keep his cool.

fizzics

Is Fizzics a gimmick or can it actually make your favorite beer even better? They claim that this table top gadget uses high-frequency sound waves and oscillation to enhance the flavor and create an “ultra-dense, long-lasting head”.

According to the Indiegogo campaign, it’s also portable, easy to clean, requires only a couple of AA batteries, and is compatible with all standard bottles, cans and growlers.

Fizzics is expected to retail for $199, but if you back the campaign early you can secure one for $119 with free shipping.

This beer stein makes putting a shot into your drink easier and awesomer. It comes with a shot glass that sits right on top of the stein. Fill it with liquor, push the trigger, and the shot drops right into your glass. The 6″ tall stein holds 12.6 ounces with a shot glass that holds 2.37 ounces.

Bombs away after the break.

When you think of ice cream you think Ben & Jerry’s. Now you can also think beer as they’ve partnered with New Belgium to create “Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale” with 6.3% ABV. It’s described as being packed with “chocolaty, salted-caramel, vanilla goodness”.

Sales will benefit Protect Our Winters and you can look for it to arrive sometime this fall. Fingers crossed they turn Chunky Monkey into a beer next.

If you owned this Beer Engine bike by the Hogs Back Brewery, you could take the pub with you wherever you go. The motorcycle was commissioned by the Surrey, UK-based brewery for a Discovery Channel competition, and it features an onboard bar and a sidecar that’s was made from an actual beer barrel.

Safe? No. Awesome? Yes.

Unfortunately, the bike was disqualified from the competition (apparently the sidecar was the issue), but the brewery still displays the bike proudly.

SUSHI-BEER-BOTTLE-ORCHESTRA

Kirin Ichiban wanted to draw attention to their beer brand so, naturally, they made a music video with a beer-bottle orchestra and sushi chefs. I don’t know what I’m more excited about: the sushi, the calliope-style music, or the sexy brew-blowing gents.

And this isn’t any group of bottle-whistling musicians. The Bottle Boys have quite the repertoire of music videos all using their finely tuned assorted ales. Using empty Kirin Ichiban bottles, the Danish hunks created a delicious video accompanied by the sounds of sushi chefs and salmon rolls.

It’s music to my tummy. Check out the video after the jump.
