A beer placed on the gun of a moving tank rests without spilling in an impressive display of engineering.
The Bag of Nails pub in Bristol, England is a place that offers good music, draught craft beer and the unexpected ability to cuddle with native cats while enjoying a pint. Unlike the now wonderfully ubiquitous cat cafes, Bag of Nails doesn’t require its patrons to schedule time to hang out with the cats, they just wander freely around the bar, choosing the people they like. Bar owner Luke Daniels spoke about the cats in an interview with the Bristol Post.
We have 15 cats in the pub – we once had 24 but that was too much. The reaction is mostly positive. Occasionally you might have some people walking in and leaving and some might be allergic to cats but people love it. Some of them [the cats] come and sit on your lap

The Tipsy Bartender and his costumed assistant Chelsey demonstrate how to create a memorable “Halloween Pumpkin Cooler” using only a large pumpkin, a 24-pack of beer (craft beer works much better) and a bit of dry ice. The instructions may be simple, but the effect is really cool.
They’ve also provided amusing outtakes from the video.

The UK-based brewing company, Carlsberg, has recently teamed up with Bethesda to create a beer for the video game Fallout 4. The light-colored pilsner lager, called Fallout Beer, is “brewed using a unique blend of malted barleys combined with selected hops” and offers a “refreshing zesty hoppy taste and floral aroma.” 12-pack cases of the beer are currently only available to pre-order in the UK via Amazon.co.uk and scheduled to release on November 5th, 2015.
