As if we needed more of a reason to drink a new beer from Founders, the folks over there have given us one. Proceeds from the sale of their Inspired Artist Black IPA (on sale in August) will go to ArtPrize (the world’s largest art competition) which takes place not too far from their brewery. The competition is a breeding ground for dialogue on art and advances the medium every year it is held, and if we can help that by drinking a delicious black IPA that boasts 88 IBUs, well, I guess we’d be jerks if we didn’t. They may want to enter the beer label in the competition as well since it is damn gorgeous.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
