Well, I’m not too sure how William here is able to pour a beer with his forehead. I’m thinking witchcraft. Sorcery. Weird science-y stuff.

That, or he has a very sticky forehead.

If you’re planning on heading to the Minnesota Twins’ Target Field for the Major League Baseball All-Star festivities next week, you’re in for a treat. The stadium is debuting all-new, self-serve beer vending machines, called DraftServ. The machines (which are the creation of Anheuser-Busch and Delaware North) are stocked with four popular beers that you can access easily: Bud and Bud Light, Shock Top Lemon Shandy and Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale.

Patrons line up, show their ID to an employee and then pre-load a card for $10 or $20. The cards can be then used to pour up to 48 ounces of their beer of choice every 15 minutes (which would make getting hammered at the ballpark a little more difficult).

Jerry Jacobs Jr., principal of Delaware North, noted that the vending machine allows patrons the opportunity to have greater control of what they’re drinking. “If they want half of a cup, that’s all they will pay for,” said Jacobs.

Currently, you can only get Duff beer at the Simpsons theme park or outside the US, but that is about to change if the rumors are true. It all comes as a result of this blurry image from the Licensing Expo that was held last week. No details or availability dates were released, but if the image is to be believed, we’re going to be able to kick back with an officially licensed Duff beer in the states sometime soon.

nerdy flasks 1

Etsy seller Lady Rene has a shop full of perfect presents: geeky stainless steel flasks. They hold 6 ounces of your beverage of choice, and they’re all dressed up in superhero outfits. The costumes are printed on a vinyl decal and laminated onto the flasks with professional grade PVC. You can choose from a few different finishes and add personalization for no extra cost. Will you choose to drink from Batman, Thor, Aquaman, Hulk, or someone else?

See more of the wide variety of superhero flask designs after the break.

Planet beers

Have you had a drink from every planet in our solar system? You’ll be able to answer “yes” to that question soon if you imbibe Bell’s Brewery’s Planet Series of beers. They’ve developed the flavor for each of the brews based on Gustav Holst’s The Planets, Op. 32. The orchestral suite was completed in 1916, and I imagine Holst never thought it would inspire beer. The descriptions are as follows:

“Mars, The Bringer of War” – Double IPA

“Venus, The Bringer of Peace” – A Blonde Ale brewed with honey, apricot, vanilla and cardamom

“Mercury, The Winged Messenger” – A Belgian Single

“Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity” – A malt forward Brown Ale

“Saturn, The Bringer of Old Age” – A Bourbon Barrel-aged Barleywine

“Uranus, The Magician” – Black Double IPA

“Neptune, The Mystic” – A beer inspired by Dr. Bell’s Medicinal Stout, one of Larry Bell’s homebrews that also helped inspire Eccentric Ale

You’ll be able to taste The Planets starting in August. Listen to the music that inspired it after the break…

Last summer, Molson created a special beer fridge that toured Europe and would only open when a Canadian passport was presented and scanned. Now that beer fridge is back in Canada, so they’ve changed it up a bit. In honor of Canada Day, you’ll have to sing O Canada in order to get your free beer. If you goof, it even buzzes to let you know you sang it wrong.

batarang bottle opener

After a long night of fighting crime, there’s nothing quite like kicking back in your Bat-chair, flipping on the Bat-TV and popping open a nice cold bottle of beer. Adam West’s Batman would do it with this Batarang Bottle Opener. It’s a 4-inch replica of the Batarang used in the ’60s Batman TV series, and it comes with magnets so you can easily clip it to your utility belt. The Batarang Bottle Opener will be available in February, so start pre-ordering now!

This Moon Lander beer mug is actually pretty easy to build, requiring only simple objects like a mason jar, shelf supports, hinges, bolts, and some metal worker’s gear. Yes, the bulk of this thing is made from standard shelf supports. Not only is it uncomplicated, it’s a darn cheap project that brings beer to your face and just might double as a deadly weapon.

1ced_prescription_flask_set

If you’re suffering from a bad bout of sobriety on a Saturday night, then I recommend picking up a Prescription Flask. The 8-ounce flask, which features a super-official looking prescription that suggest a dosage of “one swig by mouth, repeat until empty,” also comes with two, 1-ounce shot glasses so you can get that delicious medicine down really quickly. Here’s to your good health!

Bruce Lee was an incredible martial artist, but what would have happened if he’d done a little moonlighting as a bartender? This fun video features flair bartender Po Hseng Hsu doing his best Bruce Lee impersonation behind the bar. I’d definitely pay extra to have this guy make my next drink.
