21st Amendment revealed some of the secrets to SFGATE in a recent interview:

“Biscuit malts give the beer a slightly nutty, crust-like flavor, while pale and dark crystal malts create the mouthfeel and flavors reminiscent of strawberry jam.”

The breakfast-y brew is 7.6 percent alcohol by volume and 74 IBUs (seriously hoppy and bitter). The hops used include Citra, Chinook, Simcoe, Mosaic, Azacca, and Calypso.

Thirsty yet? Mark your calendar for their grand opening celebration on August 29th.

QMx has just debuted their second set of Firefly pint glasses and a new bowl set that Jaybe Cobb would probably love.

The ceramic bowl set is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe, so it’s versatile just like our Cantonian hero, while the Firefly pint glasses feature Wash’s dinosaurs and Kaylee’s parasol.

wheaties-beer

We’ve all heard the Wheaties slogan “breakfast of champions”, but it has never been more ironic. Introducing: HefeWheaties, a limited edition Hefeweizen.

So, the beer isn’t actually made with the cereal, but it’s definitely made with wheat. Wheaties officially partnered with Fulton, a craft brewery in Minneapolis. Fulton presiden and co-founder Ryan Petz explains:

“We were intrigued from the get-go on this idea for many reasons, including that we’re both Minneapolis companies, and that the beer and the cereal both started from the same place in terms of raw ingredients and the same city.”

So plan your road trip now as HefeWheaties tallboys will be available starting August 26 at limited retailers in Minnesota only and while supplies last.

I can think of one athlete that would have loved to add this to his training table…

Cincinnati-based “Tom Will Make” is giving everyone an opportunity to learn about topography while protecting their furniture from dreaded rings with this set of four Topo Coasters.

Multiple layers of cork mimic the terrain of the Red River Gorge in Kentucky (more locations will follow apparently), and each of the 4″ x 4″ x 1/4″ coasters is backed with a layer of veneer engraved with the corresponding geographic info.

The only drawback could be careless can/glass placement, resulting in tippage that transforms the mini gorge into a raging river of beer.

The hotter it gets, the cooler your drinks need to be, so I think it’s great that these new Star Wars can huggers are cool in more ways than one.

I mean, you can stick a can in Boba Fett’s head. You gotta like that.
