It wasn’t until I got out of college and stopped drinking Natural Light out of funnels that I realized how delicious beer can be. It cools you down in the summer, heats you up in the winter, and is the perfect complement to a slice of pizza. Drinking games like Flip Cup, Beer Pong, and Beerbee just wouldn’t be quite as fun with juice or water and they’d be far too dangerous with liquor or wine. To celebrate the good ol’ barley pop, we wanted to make you thirsty as we take you all over the world via this collection of amazing beer pics from Instagram. [Read more...]

There’s not much in life better than drinking a cold, sudsy bottle of beer crafted by yourself. Brewing beer isn’t rocket science, but that’s not what you’d think when looking at most beer brewing books. They’re filled with calculations, charts and chapter upon chapter about the subtleties of crafting the perfect brew. While this may be handy for the seasoned home brewer, it is far more complex than the beginning, or even average, home brewer needs to create a good beer of their own. This gorgeous and useful new book, Beer Craft, explores the basics to the intermediate steps involved in the craft, all visualized using a heavy graphical style that makes the whole process go down smoothly.

Over the last few decades, craft breweries with their high quality micro-brewed creations, have been creating specialty batches of their “nectar of the gods.” Although large breweries dwarf independent breweries in volume of production each year — think Budweiser — the growth of small breweries has eclipsed overall beer industry growth. A lot of that can be attributed to their sense of style and taste… attributes the big brewers only dream about. One of the greatest things about these indie brewers is that they’re not trying to make enough beer to fill a football stadium, so they can focus on producing quality beers with the right ingredients.

Roger Ebert once said, “After twenty years of reviewing films, I haven’t found another filmmaker who intrigues me more… Errol Morris is like a magician, and as great a filmmaker as Hitchcock or Fellini.” Perhaps best known for his documentary films such as The Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line, Morris has been honored with shelves worth of awards, including an Oscar. He has also directed a large collection of advertisements: here we bring you a sampling of what he considers his most impressive television achievement: over 100 retro-themed commercials for Miller Hi-Life. It’s a tribute to the classic American man [Read more...]
If you’re feeling patriotic since Obama’s recent political slam dunks there’s no better way to celebrate that attitude than sipping down some beer brewed from a founding fathers recipe!
