I’ve always wanted to try Sam Adam’s Utopia, the 50 proof beer that goes for over $100 per bottle. While it was at one point the most expensive beer in the world, it’s now dropped down to #4 on the list and here are the rest.
Not much more to say other than awesome!
Urban explorers love abandoned places and most like microbrews too, which is why abandoned breweries are such an awesome target.
Who doesn’t love a milkshake (besides those with severe lactose intolerance)? If you’re tired of regular old strawberry, vanilla and chocolate though, these delightful recipes are sure to help “shake” things up.
If you liked the idea of beer popsicles, then fried beer might also be something you’d like. Bring them both to the county fair next year and you’re sure to be one of the richest concession stands around.
If you want a beer, but are looking something even cooler for this killer August heat, try a beer popsicle. Simply crack open the tab, add some simple syrup and lime juice, then insert a stick and when it’s frozen, cut open the other end. Sounds like a good experiment for my other blog, the Cheapskate’s Handbook.
I don’t hate booze, but I really do think drinking games are pathetic most of the time. Maybe it’s because my ex of three years was an obsessive beer drinker. Regardless, I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this headline. Funny enough, they’re only talking about oral herpes from sharing glasses, not the other kind from losing one too many beer pong games.

Than take some comfort in knowing that at least you aren’t a U.S. president. Mental Floss has more about the horrible humiliation presidents have had from their no-good family members. Above -Billy Carter’s beer.

I have to say, I think yougotbeer.com is a brilliant idea. You can now buy anyone across the country a beer that they can redeem wherever they live. Huge places like TGIFridays, Chilli’s and Bennigan’s take part in the program, so no matter where you are, there’s probably a place to redeem your brew.
Buy your interweb or WOW buddies a drink, hooray!
Personally, I’d rather see a cocktail one, but this is a good start.
