Latte art is the stuff Instagram dreams are made of. Why shouldn’t beer be allowed in on the fun? That’s the idea behind Beer Ripples, a new printer-like device that will craft a message in a beer’s frothy head. Designed for bars and restaurants—though passing a beer that says “Fuck You” to your buddy at your place sounds fun—Beer Ripples allows for creativity. Maybe you want to write your bar’s name in every beer. Maybe you want to advertise a drink special. Maybe you want to write “It’s from the guy at the end of the bar” on every drink to confuse patrons. We don’t know. We’re just spitballing here. The device uses a malt-based ink and a simple touchscreen interface. It’s not cheap ($3,000 plus an annual subscription), but, hey, do it for the ‘Gram. 

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.
