While I’m sure we’ve all considered jumping into a frothy pool of beer, apparently a Beer Spa is actually good for you, with a healthy boost of B-vitamins and minerals in the hops and the giant stein soak could just help your skin. Yup, we agree, trust the Czechs to invent this boozy relaxation!
Do’h! It only took this long. Beer, long the source of cheap kicks in the Western World (for want of a better place), is officially having its classification changed in Russia from, err, ‘foodstuff’ to ‘alcohol’. Well, ok. There goes the habit of drinking this ‘foodtsuff’ for breakfast. [photo via Flickr]
Shopping for prescription drugs and cheap beer just got a little easier! Walgreens drugstores just launched their own canned brew, which is now available in about half of their 7,655 stores across the US. At just 50 cents a can and $2.99 for a 6-pack (that’s right!) it just got a whole lot cheaper to drink your sorrows away. That’s at least half as expensive as most bottled waters (is that even ethical?). In fact, we think it’s cheaper than not drinking at all.
It’s one thing to sell beer in preserved animal carcasses, but how about selling beer to preserve animals? Well, that’s exactly what Australian Nail Brewing Company is doing with their new limited edition Antarctic Nail Ale. This brewery has teamed up with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as they campaign to prevent the illegal hunting of whales in the Antarctic sanctuary.

We’ve got a little more on the stunt by former JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater. This is the moment Slater cursed out a nasty passenger over a plane intercom, grabbed some beer and fled down an emergency slide at Kennedy Airport. In Chinese. Apparently the translated title of this video is ‘Busy blasting the evil [...]
Wild imagination and fearless innovation has been fueling the masters over at BrewDog to engage in what they like to call ‘extreme brewing’ for some time now. They’ve pumped out such off-the-wall creations as ultra bitter, ‘hopped to hell’ India Pale Ales, and a 32% imperial stout known as the Tactical Nuclear Penguin.
Back in April, we told the tale behind the creation of NELSON beer — a collaborative, user-feedback Australian brew. Now, in preparation for Melbourne’s Spring Fashion Week in early September, this same Beta beer has slipped into its most recent attire, designed by Melbourne-based fashion house, Trimäpee.
When scientist Raul Cano discovered 45-million-year-old yeast preserved in amber and brought it back to life, he did what anyone else would do: he brewed beer. He and fellow scientist Lewis ‘Chip’ Lambert partnered with brew masters Peter Hackett to found Fossil Fuels Brewery in order to market their unique brew. If you live in [...]
