Visitors to the Munich Oktoberfest this year drank their way into the history books by downing 7 million liters of beer. The total number of visitors was estimated at 6.4 million. I’m not great at math, but that’s like a liter of beer for every man, woman and child.

When I saw the words “beer” and “robot” in a Tweet on Friday I figured I had seen this post before… it was either the irritating Japanese beer pouring robot, or the radio controlled “robot” cooler.

The Vodka capital of the world is about to find out what an American beer is all about. Molson Coors Brewing Co. announced Tuesday that Coors Light will be availble in supermarkets and bars across the Moscow region. Wait, what!?
