Mikkeller-Brewed-a-Beer-Based-on-One-They-Found-at-the-Bottom-of-the-Ocean-new

In 1861, the S/S NEVA crashed into another ship off the coast of Læsø. The crew was saved but the precious cargo was not. That cargo? Beer from more than 30 breweries. Now, Mikkeller, with the help of White Labs and the Ternen dive team, are letting you taste the beer that was lost over 150 years ago. Wreck Ale is made from yeast that was cloned from that found in the bottles recovered by the diving team. Not only that, it’s brewed to taste like the old ale did when it was fresh. White Labs analyzed the beer to help recreate the color and alcohol strength. They even determined the malts and hops used, so Wreck Ale is a spitting image of the stuff aboard the S/S NEVA. Something tells us it won’t taste like Heady Topper.

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.
