Yeastie-Boys-Digital-IPA

Awesome brewery name aside, the Digital IPA from Yeastie Boys is just a flat-out great beer. We’re suckers for a good IPA and this offering from the New Zealand brewery nails everything we look for in a hoppy brew. Aside from that, it’s the first time we’ve come across an interactive beer. Each bottle features a QR code that will take drinkers to the recipe when scanned. It’s the perfect idea for the home brewer who likes to get experimental off some already great recipes. Hey, even if you don’t brew at home, you should buy it if you can find it because it’s just good beer and that’s reason enough.

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.
