Austin Beerworks Creates Ridiculously Long 99-Pack of Beer for Their Peacemaker Ale

Austin Beerworks has designed a 99-pack of beer to help reintroduce their Peacemaker Ale as “Anytime Ale.” The idea being that if it’s a beer for any time then one should always have a few on hand. According to their video the cases will sell for $99, but in a tweet from the company they say only 20 of the cases were made with more to follow later.

The 99-packs of beer will be delivered August 28th to yet-to-be-disclosed locations in Austin, Texas. Austin Beerworks suggest following them on Twitter and Instagram to get the locations of the deliveries as they happen.

Peacemaker was the very first beer we decided to brew. It’s balanced, refreshing, and very sessionable. Peacemaker is simple, but we take it very seriously — a bold and clean beer with nothing to hide behind. It’s the beer we drink the most at the brewery. And at home. And on the river. When you have a cold, bright, well-balanced beer like Peacemaker on hand, anytime is a good time to enjoy it.

Das Can-in-Stein, A Novelty Product That Turns Any 12-Ounce Can Into a Fancy Beer Stein

Das Can-in-Stein from ThinkGeek

The Das Can-in-Stein is a novelty product by ThinkGeek that can dress up any standard 12-ounce can for Oktoberfest by giving it the look at feel of a classic pewter tankard. It was originally one of ThinkGeek’s fake April Fools’ Day joke products, but it’s now available for sale.

Despite its pewter look, the Das Can-in-Stein is made of resin, so ThinkGeek warns to only toast from the bottom of the device while holding the handle. Das Can-in-Stein also features a functional lid that can be opened and closed with the thumb-lever to keep drinks covered and to complete the full tankard experience. ThinkGeek does specifically mention that the Das Can-in-Stein is not microwave safe, so do not microwave beer in it.

The Bottle Boys Perform a Cover of One Direction’s Song ‘Kiss You’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys (see previously) recently performed a cover of the song “Kiss You” by One Direction using beer bottles as instruments.

We’ve been wanting to do the ULTIMATE boy band homage for a while now and we thought, what better way to do it, than with One Directions Kiss You! The tune is extremely catchy and fits perfectly for bottles and it was the perfect opportunity to show off what has previously been reserved for our live audience… our EPIC dance moves ;D

The original song for the sake of comparison:

A Line of Beers by Fish Brewing and BevLink Based on ‘The Hobbit’ Film Series

Fish Tail Hobbit Gollum Precious Pils

Fish Brewing partnered with BevLink to create a line of beers based on The Hobbit film series. Each of the three 22 oz. beer bottles (10% ABV) feature a different character from the series of fantasy films: Gollum (Smeagol), Smaug the dragon, and Orc leader Bolg. According to BeerPulse, BevLink will be distributing the beer “in the west” this week and eventually make them available across the U.S in the near future.

Gollum Precious Pils: A strong Imperial Pils, with flavors as smooth and crafty as Gollum himself. Like the ring which Gollum pursued for the rest of his life, his “precious” pils, if your quest leads you to it, could extend your life too! (at least we’d like to think so) It will, at a minimum, make your journey a little more enjoyable!

Smaug Stout: Smaug Stout is styled after a classic Russian Imperial Stout, but with a subtle hint of Habanero chilis to remind you of the fire and danger awaiting you in your journey to The Lonely Mountain. Pronounced notes of Coffee and Chocolate balanced with Northwest Hops and a touch of heat produce an exceptional imperial stout, a worthy reward for your hard-fought journey.

Bolg Belgian Tripel: An Orc chieftain who ruled for 150 years, Bolg would drink his grog of choice and no one would tell him otherwise – a flavorful strong Belgian Tripel. Some said it refined an otherwise gruesome character.

Cardboard Stools That Look Like Stacked Up Pizza Boxes, Books, Records and Beer

Pizza Box Stool

Firebox has released a set of fold-up cardboard stools that have been made to look like a piles of pizza boxes (“Margherita”), a stack of books (“Bookworm”), a heap of record albums (“Music Express”) and even a case of questionable beer (“Brew Master”).

When there’s nowhere to sit down – you improvise. Whether that means perching precariously on a pile of old pizza boxes, squatting sheepishly on a stack of classic novels or casually balancing upon someone’s priceless record collection. Thanks to the Incredible Cardboard Stools you no longer have to cobble together these abstract and rickety pieces of furniture. They may only be made from corrugated cardboard, but these sturdy seats are super strong and likely to defy all your expectations – supporting a colossal weight of up to 200kg (31 stone!). Best of all they’re flat-packed and easy to assemble so they can be quickly constructed or stowed away to save you precious space. Just choose from four photo-realistic designs to suit your surroundings and then fold up a pew.

SYNEK Draft System, A Portable Beer Tap for Use at Home

The SYNEK Draft System is a portable beer tap by St. Louis-based market analyst Steve Young that uses a proprietary flexible packaging system to bring a wider array of microbrews to the home. The system is easier and cheaper to fill than standard bottles and growlers, making it possible for smaller breweries to potentially offer more choices to the home market. The company is currently raising funds via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and expects to send the first taps to backers in March 2015.

It’s got the convenience of a Keurig coffee machine, the volume of two growlers, the spirit of a falcon and all the variety you’ve ever wanted.
