You might not be able to drink a beer any old time you like, but you probably can suck on a beer-flavored lollipop without getting fired from your job. These lollipops by Lollyphile come in three beer flavors of Lager, Stout and IPA and are true to the beers for which they are named. This isn’t Lollyphile’s first foray into the world of odd lollipop flavors. We’ve previously featured lollipops with flavors like Sriracha Bacon and Bleu Cheese.

You can get yourself some beer flavored lollipops online, and if you use the code BEERBREAK at checkout then you’ll get 50% off of your whole order, no matter which flavors you choose.

Just yesterday we posted about the wonder of Palcohol powdered alcohol. It is clearly a product ripe for abuse, and the amazing part was that it had been approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for sale in the US. It looks like that approval may have been a mistake, but not for the reasons you might think.

According to CNNMoney, an email from the agency’s director of congressional and public affairs, Tom Hogue, said the approval was “in error.” Palchol has responded indicating that it’s just a labelling issue, not a problem with the product itself.

“We have been in touch with the TTB and there seemed to be a discrepancy on our fill level, how much powder is in the bag. There was a mutual agreement for us to surrender the labels,” says a statement on the Palcohol site. “This doesn’t mean that Palcohol isn’t approved. It just means that these labels aren’t approved. We will re-submit labels. We don’t have an expected approval date as label approval can vary widely.”

Waiting for government approval of anything can take awhile, so we’d best all sit back, grab a standard old glass of our favorite beverage, and wait to see if Palcohol will make it through another round of federal and state approvals.

Palcohol powdered alcohol is here to save you from the horror of having to carry around a heavy bottle of booze. Instead, all you need is a packet of this powdered alcohol and 5 ounces of water. The idea comes from Mark Phillips who leads an active lifestyle and wanted an easier way to enjoy a drink after a day of activity like hiking or camping.

Even though this is powder, it is still alcohol so it will be sold just like alcohol in the US. And yes, this stuff has actually been approved by The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. There’s already a dehydrated beer out there, so alcohol is just the evolution of the concept.

We know what you’re thinking (which is part of the problem). From the Palcohol website:

Can I snort it? We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don’t do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we’ve added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

I’m sure that will stop all the goofballs from trying it. But what about sprinkling it over food?

There are all sorts of special brews out there, but none claim a heritage like this 3,300-year-old Danish beer. Egtved Girl’s Brew is being made through a partnership between the Danish National Museum and Skand’s Brewery and is based on the dried residue found in an ancient bark beer bucket. The bucket was in a coffin along with the remains of the Egtved Girl, hence the name of the beer. Peter Steen Henriksen, curator of the museum, notes:

“We had the basic list for the beer, but the challenge was to find the relationship between the ingredients, and we had to taste our way to a result. So, is our new brew the drink Egtved girl’s people took to their graves? We cannot know for certain, but it’s an educated guess.”

The beer is said to have the flavor of a wheat beer with malt, honey, bog myrtle, and cranberry.

Yes, that man extremely intoxicated. There’s also a fence in his way and it’s causing him a lot of trouble, but a charitable individual shows him the secret of the rusty green fence and everything ends on a happy note. Yay!

serenity sake set

As a Browncoat, I love this Serenity Sake because it feels like a perfect fit for the ‘Verse. It evokes the Chinese influence within Firefly and it’s also just really shiny.

It’s made of microwave and dishwasher safe white porcelain and in stock now.

A new Star Trek-themed dunkelweizen (or dark wheat) beer called Klingon Warnog is set to beam down to stores near you. It will be the first Star Trek beer to be available commercially here in the States.

It’s brewed by Indiana-based Tin Man Brewery for the Federation of Beer–the Federation was also behind the Vulcan Ale, which came out last year.

Jack Daniel’s Tennesse Fire Whiskey adds extra burn with the addition of red hot cinnamon liqueur to their Jack Daniel’s Old #7 Whiskey.

Enticing to all the senses, the aroma of fiery spice blends with the mellowness of Jack Daniel’s and a hint of red hot cinnamon. The result is a sweet, hot cinnamon kick that complements the smooth and delicious taste of Jack Daniel’s, giving you a unique finish full of unmistakable character.

This is a limited edition test run and will be available starting in April, but only in Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.
