  • The popularity of our original recipe and guide for deep frying a turkey has prompted good comment discussion… there is a lot of great information. But that particular post became a knowledge-base of hard-to-find tips. So with that in mind, I re-read and culled the best information that may not be in our guide.

  • “Big Beer” is getting even bigger. Anheuser-Busch InBev is expanding–yet again. SABMiller accepted a takeover bid valued at over $100 billion from Anheuser-Busch InBev in a deal that would form a company that would control nearly a third of the global beer market. This is bad for you. Here’s why.

  • Drew Harwell of the Washington Post contacted me yesterday for his story “America’s most iconic beer brands are being bought by foreign investors.

  • Well, this came as a complete surprise. Pabst Brewing Company has defected to Russia. According to articles on the Huffington Post and the NY Times, the 170-year-old brewery from Milwaukee known for its iconic Pabst Blue Ribbon beer announced on Thursday night that it was sold to Moscow-based Oasis Beverages, a beer and soda firm that operates in Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine.

  • Lost beer. We’ve all been there. You put your drink down and it can vanish in a sea of beverages that all look alike. The CAN STAMP™ is a nifty solution to properly identifying your beverage can, and it’s here to help.

  • Survivalists and hikers may find this exciting news; beer enthusiasts, perhaps not so much. A company in Alaska has created a beer concentrate and carbonation system that lets you make a beer in a pinch.

  • This Butterfly Knife Style Bottle opener from ThinkGeek looks just like a butterfly (or Balisong) knife and it can do all the same tricks you can do with a butterfly knife with the added benefit of opening bottles.

  • I love posting about articles I find that boast the benefits of alcohol. Examples include how alcohol can help with Alzheimer’s disease, how drinking is good for your bones, and how women who drink are thinner than their teetotaling counterparts. So imagine how happy I was to discover the news that “Alcohol Doubles Lifespan, Helps Resist Stress.”
