  • Wearable beer dispenser solves multiple problems at once

    Wearable beer dispenser solves multiple problems at once

    If you ask me (and nobody asked me) the standard 12-ounce beer size is long overdue for an upgrade. We, as Americans, like things larger than life and there's no reason we should still be drinking a single beer in under a minute. Until all beer manufacturers start shipping suds in 32-ounce (or larger) cans, we'll have to make due with an apparatus such as this: the Portable Tap Dispenser. Read More

    Brewing your own beer by hand is soooo 1992. You can now automate most of the process using an Arduino controller and some source code over at Halfluck.com. Read More

  • Beer in a Pouch: Sure, why the hell not?

    Beer in a Pouch: Sure, why the hell not?

    Okay, this is definitely a new one. The "BeerPaQ CarboPouch for Draft Beers" is pretty much exactly like it sounds, although you could drop "BeerPaQ" and "Carbo" to achieve the same effect: it's beer, but in a pouch. But why? Read More

  • Prepare for outdoor drinking season with Beer Blaster, holster, and belt

    Prepare for outdoor drinking season with Beer Blaster, holster, and belt

    The Beer Blaster isn’t NEW new, per se, but keep it on your radar as we prepare to enter the first days of outdoor drinking season – spring, summer, and fall. The kit consists of a gun that allows you to shotgun a beer to someone else, if that makes sense, and you’d be remiss to wander about your neighborhood barbecues without the additional holster and ammo belt.

  • Beer fuels you, left over beer fuels your car

    Beer fuels you, left over beer fuels your car

    Beer, the third most popular beverage in the world after water and tea, just gained another reason for our support. Sierra Nevada Brewing, makers of fine beverages, recently purchased an EFuel 100 MicroFueler, which produces ethanol from water, sugar, and yeast. Guess what one of the major byproducts of beer fermentation is? Yup, yeast! The excess yeast left over from brewing will soon find its… Read More

    Remote Control Beer Pager

    Okay. We have all lost a beer. It happens. You set it down for a moment, only to lose it seconds later. It's frustrating early in the night, but infuriating around 2:00AM. Enter the Remote Control Beer Pager. Read More

  • Bandai Japan sells beer shampoo

    Bandai Japan sells beer shampoo

    Bandai Japan today announced it will start selling beer shampoo (in beer bottles) December 1st [JP]. It’s about time somebody came up with this. The company is promoting the shampoo as part of its “One of the things everyone has been wanting to try for a long time at least once” series, which includes fake money bills that you can take a bath with [JP]. Bandai says one of the… Read More

    How to ease your girlfriend into liking beer (plus bonus grammar challenge!)

    I’d say 90 percent of the staff here is one weekend bender away from a one-way trip to the Betty Ford Center. But beer doesn’t merely ruin lives, no sir. It can, apparently, ruin relationships, too! That is, unless you follow the advice of The Frisky, a new women’s site that was just brought to my attention. They’ve put together a list of 10 so-called “gateway… Read More

 
  • Lego beer pouring machine run by the iPhone: The perfect Digg storm

    This video shows an iPhone controlled beer pouring machine that is triggered by the word “Pour” found in a Pownce RSS feed. It does not solve world hunger or cure cancer, but I think the creator’s heart is definitely in the right place. Digg users/Gizmodo take note: this product, made from Legos, run by the iPhone, and designed to pour an entire bottle of beer into a glass is… Read More

  • Cancer-fighting chemical to be added to beer

    Cancer-fighting chemical to be added to beer

    We’ve all heard the “red wine is good for you” argument before, but let’s face it; not everyone would choose a glass of red wine over a nice, cold beer. I wouldn’t, at least. Anyway, the actual benefit of drinking red wine comes from a cancer-fighting chemical called resveratrol, which occurs naturally in grapes. The problem with the red wine argument is that… Read More

    Review: Heineken Draught Keg

    Think back on the last party you attended. Perhaps you enjoy sitting around an impeccably decorated living room and sipping glasses of cold, frosty beer poured by a nattily attired waitress named Nicole hired for the night so the hostess could mingle with the glitterati in attendance. Or perhaps it was at your friend Terry’s house where you ended up puking all over his couch after trying… Read More

    Spin the Beer Wheel, win a prize (beer + knowledge)

    People who are really into wine get cool sounding titles like “Sommelier” and “wine enthusiast” while people who really love beer are often just called “fat” and/or “drunk”. Unfair though it may be, I happily plop myself into the latter category of beer lovers. So for the beer lover who’s got it all, here’s the $8.99 Beer Wheel — a… Read More

    TrekStor creates a thumb drive that you might actually keep in your pocket

    Hot on the heels of our back to school week comes one of the most seemingly indispensable storage devices to date: The TrekStor USB stick with built-in bottle opener. Let’s face it, there have been a lot of stupid, dumb implementations of flash drives before (keychains, wristbands, necklaces, etc.) and a lot of brilliant implementations of bottle openers before (Reef’s… Read More

    IFA 2008 Booze Cruise

    2008 is the first year that the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin has included so-called “white goods” in addition to the traditional media and entertainment products on display.  Particularly interesting to me were a collection of high-end wine coolers like those pictured above, and the Philips Perfect Draft beer fridge.  Stick a pony keg inside the Perfect Draft and you can… Read More

    Stella Artois-branded PSP: That's a fancy beer, midwesterners

    Stella Artois is a non-offensive beer best consumed while watching non-American sports like the Champions League or the Tri Nations. The Sony PSP is a portable video game system best enjoyed after it’s been loaded with a custom firmware and decked out with emulators and the like. But a Stella Artois PSP? Madness. The PSP isn’t an official Sony product, but rather represents the… Read More

    DIY USB coil cable

    Why is it that the vast majority of USB cables are 6 feet long? The majority of my time, I need a 1-footer to connect random gadgets to my USB hub. Heck, even a 6-incher would be nice, but a USB cable that coils like a phone handset cord isn’t a bad alternative.  instructables’ user, Plusea, has a comprehensive walkthrough on how to make one of these puppies. All it requires is a… Read More

    Exclusive: Octane 120 video game cabinet – with beer tap

    Just got a leaked photo and information on the new DreamArcades Octane 120, a video game cabinet with joystick control panel, driving wheel, and, as you see here, a beer tap for standard kegs. Where’s the screen you ask? It uses an HD video projector and 5.1 stereo sound to fill the room with drunken video gaming goodness. The best thing? Quoth our tipster: It is hard to see in this photo… Read More
