Happy Hour: Hot Beer. No, Really. Hot Beer. 

When I go home to Tennessee, nobody ever asks me if I want a beer. “How ’bout a col’beer?” say the Southerners as they toss a can through the air. (All one word.) The ice cold brew cuts through the summertime humidity nicely. But winter deserves a different kind of cocktail. How about hot beer?


Watching These NZ Beer Cans Get Made Is Like Seeing A Ballet Of Machines At Work

New Zealand craft brewery Garage Project reveals how it makes its Hops on Pointe beer cans, and it’s like watching a machinery ballet unfold before our eyes. It’s funny to imagine these big honking machines made of metal and wires dressed in tutus, but there is a surprising elegance to the can-making process.


Happy Hour: I Put The Ultimate Stubby Holder To The Test

Stubby holders. They keep your hand from getting cold and your beer from getting warm — what could be better? One that keeps your beer cold for much, much longer, that’s what.


A Better Home Brew Kit: Holy Crap, It Tastes Like Beer

Where I grew up people make their own whiskey in rusty bath tubs. Houses explode. Shotguns are fired. Cop chases ensue. Tragedies are inevitable. So when an all-in-one home brew kit showed up at our office, I wondered: How hard can beer be?


Happy Hour: Hot Sauce Makes Everything Better, Even Beer

Breweries Have Run Out Of New Names (And Hop Puns) For Craft Beers 

Hoptimus Prime. Smooth Hoperator. Hoptical Illusion. If a brewer has the chance to make a hop pun (and odds are good, thanks to the hop boom), they will make it. But NPR’s The Salt says that the explosion of craft beer over the past decade has led to a legal problem: there are no new names left.


What Is A Hangover?

Yippee! Let’s poison ourselves with beverages that will make us violently ill! It was your battle cry last night, and today you’re paying the price. But what is that hangover you’re experiencing, exactly?


This Beer Lets You Send Video Messages In Its Bottles

Argentinian beer Andes had a great idea: Let people use QR codes printed on their bottles to record video messages so friends or family could get them by pointing their camera phones at it. Then they made this hilarious ad campaign showing one potential use: Send uncomfortable messages about delicate matters.


This Is The Beer Of The Future

After a long day of futuristic work and hydroponic farming in the Home of the Future, we’re betting that one thing will stay exactly the same as it is today: you’ll want to crack open a cold one. But what would that cold one look like? Probably something like this magical brew from Sixpoint.


Why It's A Lot Harder To Spill Beer Than Coffee

I think it’s well known that beer is one of mankind’s greatest inventions. But aside from the perfect taste, and ability to make in-laws seem magically more tolerable, it turns out that beer also has its very own built-in anti-spill mechanism.
