Do you like beer? Do you like beer so much, you’re obsessing? We saw a pretty fine collection of foamy, ale-y beer-print apparel by Black Milk Clothing and thought you should too. Made in Australia and designed by James Lillis, you can choose from the beer leggings, the beer dress or the beer swimsuit — […]
I found this info graphic with some very interesting things about beer, facts that I believe everybody should know. The craziest? The first professional brewers were all women. Amazing, but also pretty awesome.
We’ll admit it, they had us at ‘trade your tie for free beer’. Beer brand Sol recently installed bins around London offering beer to anyone game enough to bin their ties for some spirited relief. We’d buy a tie just to get one of these stubs.

Believe it or not, studies show that the popular concept of beer causing weight gain is nothing more than a myth. In fact, some have even gone as far as to say that when consumed reasonably and consistently, beer actually has nutritional benefits. It contains antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. And as for the high […]

The Brew Sherpa is an awesome site we came across a while back. They sell vintage beer cans and will positively be ‘Your guide on the mountains of beer knowledge’, as they say. The Brew Sherpa is a site that will teach you about the best beer on the planet. We promise.
Sad vulcans with droopy ears can rely on booze to get these pointy bits up — point taken, 1970s Heineken ad. Still, happy hour’s not going anywhere near Spock’s pokerface. If that happened, it would be even more illogical.
My new favourite bar sits by the canal in Hackney. They have great food, lovely staff and some excellent beers from local breweries. The music room features sofas, bean bags and a white baby grand piano. It’s a great place to watch music, and I love playing there.
Brooklyn-based David Segall and industrial designer Alex Chatham have launched a Kickstarter fundraiser to bring what they call a ‘superior drinking vessel’ from classical antiquity to modern life: the Das Horn, a stainless steel rimmed drinking horn that holds up to 24 ounces of good brew. Made of BPA-free ABS plastic and shaped like an animal horn — the original drinking horns were bovid horns after all — it even comes with a neck strap so you can free your hands to do other stuff. Classy.
Yes, a periodic table of beer actually exists, and it looks … complicated. Each brew is organised by its style (Is it a pilsner? Or a stout? Pale ale? Porter?) and contains important information like its ABV (alcohol by volume), IBU (international bittering units) and SRM (standard reference method, or the color). Well, got to […]
Bushido Brazil and Bamberg have released Sepultura Weizen Beer to celebrate the 25 years of the legendary band. The Sepultura is a Weizen and has a turbidity caused by natural yeast in suspension. The drink has aroma and flavors of banana and clove from a special strain of yeast that produces the chemicals that lead to these perceptions.
If you and your friends are feeling a little creative the next time you decide to have a bit of a beer drinking party, why not try your hand at this? Macaon, an avid Japanese beer drinker, has been creating sculptures of everything from birds to beaches with his empty aluminium cans. The sculptures are […]
Robofun Create, a bunch of beer-loving techies, created a keyboard out of unopened beer cans. The Beer Keyboard is connected to an Arduino board and a Raspberry Pi computer, and users only have to lightly tap on the cans to see the corresponding letters appear on-screen. When you’re tired of typing, just open up a can and enjoy. Who needs all 26 letters anyways?
