From the Cellar
It seems there’s something foul going on at baseball stadiums across America, and it has nothing to do with balls. He-he, I said balls! First there was the “craft beer destination” at Yankee Stadium that was serving Blue Moon, Leinenkugel’s and Crispin Cider, three beverages that aren’t craft beer, at least according to the Brewers Association. […]
There’s a moment in the movie Risky Business where Tom Cruise out-drives Guido the Killer Pimp in his daddy’s champagne gold Porsche 928. After terrorizing the streets and alleyways of his affluent North Shore suburb, he pulls up to his parents house and proclaims to his escort girlfriend (in the douchiest way possible), “Porsche: There […]
Australia is a country of extremes – their alcoholic sports fans bury beer a week before racing events to circumvent the 24-cans-per-day limit, and their spiders are terrifying. But this story from Time.com reveals a different side of Australian extremism, because the “no hangover” beer they’ve developed Down Under is extremely silly, for exactly 2.3 […]
. . This video created by photographer Ben Garvin shares one very important life lesson – if you have a magical beard, one with a life of its own that can hide crayons and consume an entire cucumber – you’d best not let shaving cream touch it. That could kill the host.
I just had a chat with Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione for a Today.com piece I’m working on. While the topic wasn’t on the agenda, I just had to ask for his thoughts on Brew Dogs, the new craft beer television show featuring the brew-fueled antics James Watt and Martin Dickie from Scotland’s BrewDog craft […]
I came across this infographic on The Roaming Pint’s Facebook page and just had to share it here. It was created by a Japanese coffee fetish website (I mean really, who would be crazy enough to dedicate an entire website to a single beverage?!) called ilovecoffee.jp. It’s full of interesting facts about both coffee and […]
The olds will never figure out Twitter. Case in point, this article posted by the Cleveland Scene, an alt-weekly that squatted on the Twitter handle of that city’s venerable daily newspaper and then sold it back to them for a bounty of beer.
If you’re thinking of going to the Great American Beer Festival, you should stop now. All the tickets to the October beer sampling extravaganza sold in in less than 20 minutes, with many people unable to click their way into a pass for the festival. As you can imagine, these people are thrilled.
. . If you’re a long-term reader of this blog, you know I have a thing against the blokes from BrewDog, the Scottish craft brewers that pumped out such undrinkable, attention-whoring beers like Tactical Nuclear Penguin, The End of History (featuring roadkill stuffed with bottles), and Royal Virility Performance, a beer brewed with Viagra to celebrate […]
. I’ll admit it – my excitement over tonight’s premiere of the the SyFy Channel’s original film Sharknado is probably a little out of proportion with the quality of the film itself. I don’t know why, but this schlockfest about killer sharks thrown into peoples lives by a hurricane has me absolutely brimming with excitement. […]
I like to consider myself a pretty savvy online shopper, which is where I purchase most of my bigger ticket items. I research before I buy, I read online reviews with a grain of salt, and I ferret out the best price I can find from a reputable retailer before I pull the trigger. But […]
There was a time before the Internet put thousands of real-world user reviews at your fingertips that you would have to rely on publications like Consumer Reports to help sort out the bad dishwashers from the good, the most reliable VCRs from the tape eaters, and the sweet rides from the lemons. Those days are […]
Today is July 1st, and besides being the first day of a short work week we’re all riding out to get to the fireworks, barbecue and beer, it also marks a significant milestone for homebrewers. Today, a law legalizing homebrewing goes into effect in Mississippi, which was the last bastion of backwards brewing bans. That […]
