  • 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… 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… Read More

  • 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… Read More

  • Clever promotions company fills USB drive with beer, other liquids declared the best thing on earth

    This is what’s wrong with Digg. I just wish I had found it first. Heh. CNK 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 —… 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… 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… 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… Read More

  • After breakup, man spends $1,000 a week on beer

    Reuters is reporting that an Australian man recently convicted of his 7th drunk driving charge revealed that he’d been spending around $1,000 per week on beer. That’s funny, sad, or both, depending upon how you view everyone’s place in the Universe. What I find funny and sad is that the dude broke up with his girlfriend FIVE YEARS AGO. Get over it, man! Live in the now! Read More

  • An open letter to all stadiums I may enter from this day forward: Now you’re all in big, big trouble

    If there was a fan club solely for people who like items that pay for themselves after one use, I’d be president. Maybe secretary, actually, since I type a lot for my day job. No, president, actually. I have a lot of good ideas and it’s time to enact change around here. This fan club has been going down hill ever since it never started. Anyway, this is the Beer Belly Cooler. Read More

  • How cold is your beer? Coors Light knows.


    You’ve all seen the Coors Light bottles with the color changing mountains by now, but if you haven’t then you’ve been living under a rock or you like warm beer. I hear there’s a heat wave in NYC and I’m not looking forward to coming back to that tomorrow, but at least I know my beers will be cold since the mountains will be nice and blue. The plastic bottle… Read More

  • Bierstick: Two beers in under two seconds

    Straight out of my hometown of Minneapolis comes the Bierstick, a $20 apparatus that you fill with two cans of Busch Light, prop against a wall, then use to propel said Busch Light down your gullet in less than two seconds. I’m overflowing with pride. It’s perfect for people who find shotgunning a single beer in five seconds to be too time consuming. I mean, come on… Read More

  • Space beer heading our way, courtesy of Sapporo

    Space beer. It’s right up there with space wrestling as something that’s long overdue, but the wait will soon be over. Sapporo will launch a beer in November that’s brewed from International Space Station-grown barley. Initially, only 100 bottles of the space brew will be made, and none of them released commercially, and it’s unlikely that the beer will taste any different. Read More

  • Foosball: Just add beer and 21 of your closest friends

    We had a foosball table in one of the houses I lived in during college. We all chipped in $40, times six of us, and boom — a nice $200 never ending source of entertainment. The problem was that the minute we bought the table, we found out we had a bunch of new friends; new friends who happened to love foosball and loved not chipping in for beer even more. I wish we’d had the… Read More

  • Chill Stick beer quiver holds a six pack, my heart

    I betcha one of these would fit quite nicely into a golf bag. Maybe load her up with some barley pops and let’s get going. The Chill Stick costs a measly $11.98 — a pittance compared to what six beers in a cooler would cost you on almost any golf course. It’s made of neoprene, which is basically God’s gift to beverage enthusiasts and it comes in assorted colors that… Read More
