Scottish brewery, Brewmeister, just created the world’s strongest beer, Snake Venom. It has dethroned Armageddon with an insane 67% ABV. The brew consists of smoked peat malt, and a combination of Champagne yeast and ale yeast. To give you an idea of how potent this monster is, vodka, whiskey, and tequila, all usually have around 40% ABV. In layman’s terms, that’s you throwing up your guts sooner than expected.
Finally, here’s a godsend of an appliance that makes brewing good beer easy.

It’s hard to avoid Hello Kitty these days (toy stores, bookstores, grocery stores–she’s everywhere!) and soon when you visit your local bar in China or Taiwan, you’ll be greeted with that super sweet feline’s smile – on a beer can! Hello Kitty marketers say these new fruit-flavored beers (banana, peach, lemon-lime, passion fruit) are targeted towards women, with each can containing just 2.5% alcohol content (half of a Budweiser).

In 1968, the late John Milkovisch started using the old beer cans he saved from his afternoon drinking sessions with his wife to make the shiny metallic exterior of the Beer Can House located in Houston, Texas. He ended up using 50,000 beer cans. What can we say? He sure drank a lot.
