Watching NY Mets Beer Guy Take Line Drive to the Family Jewels Will Make Your Stomach Hurt

Not sure if this guy was wearing a cup or shocked to the point of being numbed, or just a genuine Grade A badass.

Beer: refreshing when it tastes like beer, shitty when it tastes like shampoo. 

For whatever reason, advertisers and men with beards have convinced us that the worse a beer tastes, the better it is. The rise of the IPA has killed the refreshing beer and has replaced it with a sticky mouth feel that people force down in hopes of "having taste." Not to be outdone by the idea that bitterness is good, one brewer is adding two really stupid ingredients to a beer: mint and chocolate. 

Pardon me:

According to Food and Wine, New York's South Tier brewery is making a Girl Scout Cookie-flavored beer because everything has to be a gimmick. Marketed as a Thin Mint Stout, "Thick Mint" finally cuts out the middle man of drinking a beer while housing a box of Thin Mints because everyone likes chewing gum and drinking beer. 

And here it is:

Excuse me:



Look, not everyhting has to taste like something crazy. I know beverage makers are on this neverending quest to make drinks taste like food, but you know most of us want beer to taste like? Beer. We want a beer that tastes like a beer, not a York Peppermint Patty. Goddammit. 

Also, Thick Mint? Gross. 

Now if you'll excuse me:

Happy St. Patrick's Day: Watch Paul Ryan Upset the Irish on Twitter By Raising a Sad Looking Guinness

Cute. I remember my first beer. 

Yesterday, at an event where that reality-TV gameshow host who became president last year with the Irish Prime Minister, House speaker Paul Ryan raised a pathetic glass of Guinness and nearly set off an international incident. Watch as Paul Ryan attempts to fit in with normal folk as if he wasn't actively trying to kill normal people by gutting medicaid. 

This is not going over well on the internet, as people are mortified at Paul Ryan's beer and the idea of him drinking it. Sure this is nit picky, but Paul Ryan suck, so whatever. Enjoy people making fun of this turd.

70-Year-Old Legend Goes Back to College and Joins Kappa Sig Fraternity

It's as if this wrinkly old bag of bro bones walked himself right off the set of an 'Old School' sequel. If that movie reference didn't ring a bell, I'm talking about the one where a few middle-aged dudes up and start their own fraternity on the outskirts of a college campus...to smashing success, no less.

Yes, Beer Yoga is Real. Yes, It Will Get You Up at 8 on a Saturday Morning

Namaste, get into your downward dog positions, and crack open a cold one. Class is in session. 

Perhaps in an effort to get beer drinkers and hell raisers into the ancient art of meditative stretching, a German Yoga studio has created a form of yoga mixed with barley and hops. BierYoga, the German Beer Yoga studio, combines "The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience," according to their website.

Now with a studio opening in Australia, Beer Yoga has crossed international waters. Check it out and sign me up.

microbrewery makes shower beer

Sorry, rubber ducky, there’s a new bath toy in town, and it’s beer.

While everyone hates cleaning themselves, there’s one thing that could make it a whole lot better: Drinking. It’s common practice to sneak a Budweiser or even a Corona in the shower with you, but one microbrewery from Sweden is making a beer specifically for the shower.

“Shower Beer” as it is not-so-cleaverly named is a special beer that’s for the shower. The founder of PangPang Brewery, Fredrik Tunedal, says he came up with the idea after coming home from the brewery covered in malt dust and needing a shower. This beer is an ode to that special time as the water rains down on you.

How is specially made for the shower?

via Mashable

"I made to Shower Beer small enough to keep its temperature during the shower, and strong enough to mentally wash your workday off and get ready for a fresh night out,” he told Mashable.

He then goes on to describe the flavor as “heavily hopped” and “citrussy, soapy, and somewhat herbal profile.” Wait, soapy?

Uhhhhhh….

amazing beer pipeline in bruges belgium transport thousands of gallons of beer

Now this is a pipeline worth fighting for.

As oil pipelines threaten the drinking water and land of the Native Americans here in the states, pipelines in Belgium are threatening sobriety. The world’s first legal beer pipeline in Bruges, Belgium carries 1,000 gallons, the equivalent of 12,000 bottles, of beer an hour from the brewery to the bottling planet two miles away.

via GIPHY

This is not the first beer pipeline. There was at least one illegal one operating during Prohibition, in which a 6,000-foot hose was found under the streets of Yonkers, NY in 1930.

This perfectly legal pipeline, however, starts at Halve Maan beer brewery, one of the country’s oldest. It opened in 1856, and thanks to a crowdfunded campaign, the brewery was launched into the 21st century with a brand-new beer pipeline.

According to Atlas Obscura, “The 500+ donors received a priceless thank you gift: free beer for life. Today, visitors can glimpse a section of the pipeline through a transparent manhole cover cut into the cobblestone street.”

Grandfather Opens 32-Year-Old Beer After Cubs Win the World Series

It's been a big night for Cubs fan, who ended a 108-year losing streak to win the World Series against the Cleveland Indians. They're probably thirsty. Thirsty for old beer, that is. 

Ending a streak of his own, this grandfather finally opened a beer that he put in the fridge 32 years ago with a mental note "slam this bad boy when the Cubs win the the World Series." Let's just say, nothing makes a man thristier than their team winning the Fall Classic — thirstier for old beer, that is. 

via Reddit

The chickens came home to roost — or the Cubs came home to roost or something —  last night, and he popped the top on this three-decade old Coors Banquet. Complete with pull-style tab can, the beer in question does not even fizz when he pours it into his proud Cubs mug. Reports say that the beer "smells like hell" and probably shouldn't be drunk. 

The family heard those reports, too. It smelled so bad that they wouldn't even let him drink it. After all, why would anyone want to celebrate a World Series win — more than a century in the making — in the emergency room because their grandfather was so thirsty for old beer. 

Be a winner, like the Cubs: Don't drink 30-year-old beer.
