There are few sites we spend as much time on as The Chive. Besides hindering our work efforts, the site also makes us want to grab a cold one every Friday afternoon when they post a few photos of beautifully shot pints. Now they’ve teamed up with Redhook Brewery to launch KCCO Black Lager. (To the uninitiated, “KCCO” stands for “Keep Calm and Chive On”.) The beer, which is the first in a line, clocks in at 5.1% ABV (nice and sessionable) and has flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, and a hint of smokiness. We’d recommend picking some up when it hits a store near you and then kicking back with a couple while scrolling through Chive galleries.

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.
