Once in a while, we like to play mad scientist with our beer. While there are plenty of amazing brews out there that are perfect on their own, there’s something about being part of the creation of something that excites us. If you want to play beer mixologist, here are some blends to get you started.

With around 3,000 breweries in the United States, it's tough for the new guy to stand out. Jared Rouben (formerly of Goose Island) is doing just that with his latest venture Moody Tongue.

We down green drinks, work at standing desks and mess around with kettlebells to stay in shape, but that doesn't mean we don't enjoy knocking a few back at happy hour. Drinkwel is the multivitamin especially designed for guys who drink. The multivitamin was developed by two Berkeley grads to replenish nutrients, support liver health and process alcohol induced toxins so you can feel better about having those Double IPAs after you finish your run. Try it out, and if you aren't satisfied, they'll give you your money back, including shipping. ... check it out

When you hit your local liquor shop or travel to a brewery in search of some new beers to try, there are a few that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Walk into 99% of the breweries in the United States, and you'll be greeted with stainless steel conical fermenters, a seemingly limitless supply of sanitizing solution, and equipment that is cared for like the head brewer was Mr. Clean himself. In Cantillon, you'll find a shit-ton of spiderwebs.
Started in 1900 ... continue reading
A war broke out a little over five years ago that many people have never heard about. The fight raged over which brewery could create the world’s strongest beer. Since most brewing yeasts couldn’t survive and help make beers at these levels, the brewers had to get creative with freezing to make their brews clock ... continue reading
Like many readily available American beers, a lot of the Mexican beers you come across offer little in the way of flavor. We’re not saying partying with a few Coronas is going to make for a bad Cinco de Mayo, but there are some other options out there that deliver at least a little more in the way of taste.

We've homebrewed quite a few batches of beer. Even though they were different styles, with different ingredients and flavor profiles, they all had one thing in common. We made a horrific mess.

From the bold and often humorous names to the almost fractal-like design, the bottles and cans from Evil Twin are instantly recognizable. We talked with ... continue reading
We'd recommend aging some of those barley wines you've got for a few years for a smoother profile, but aging something 3,300? That's nuts. While this beer isn't aged long, it is based on a recipe that predates any brew you've downed in your time. Egtved Girl's Brew is based on a recipe from the Bronze Age that was ... continue reading
With the new season of Game of Thrones kicking off this weekend, it's time to purchase a few brews to enjoy with the bloodshed.

A little over a year ago, renowned glassmaker, Spiegelau, teamed up with the folks at Dogfish Head to create a glass perfectly suited for IPAs. Now the company has worked with Left Hand Brewing Co. and Rogue to craft this glass that does the same for stouts. The claim is that the base drives foam up into the large ... continue reading
Simply mount the DropCatch Bourbon to your wall or place it on any magnetic surface and you’ll never have to worry about random bottle caps all over your floor after a party again.

This Bourbon version is made with white oak from reclaimed bourbon barrels and finished with linseed oil for an added bit of style. ... check it out
