Stone-Brewing-Teamed-up-with-Metallica-to-Make-Enter-Night-Pilsner

We definitely were not old enough to listen to Metallica’s The Black Album (yes, we know it’s actually called Metallica, but come on) when it was first released in the early 90s. But when we did finally get the chance to hear it the first time–without parental approval, obviously–it changed everything. Turns out Greg Koch, co-founder of Stone Brewing and their imprint Arrogant Consortia, was similarly affected by the album. In what we can only imagine was a lifelong dream, the Arrogant Consortia team collaborated with Metallica to brew Enter Night Pilsner (go ahead and belt out a few verses of “Enter Sandman”), a 5.7%, 45 IBU brew that’s crisp, refreshing and comes with it’s own toast–“It’s enter night people… Goddamn!”. Enter Night Pilsner is slated for a nationwide release early this year, and it will also be available at venues where Metallica is performing during their “Worldwired Tour.”

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
