Care To Try A Beer-Flavored Starbucks Latte?

Pumpkin spice lattes not your thing? No worries: Starbucks is currently testing out its new Dark Barrel Latte, which is inspired by “the rise of craft beers” and meant to taste like “roasted malt” (a.k.a Guinness covered in whipped cream). The drink doesn’t have any alcohol in it, but it does include caramel and “stout flavored” sauce mixed in with its milk and espresso base.

The beer latte is being tested in a few stores in Ohio and Florida, and so far, people aren’t really sure what to think. Among those who have tried the beverage, it’s just about agreed across the board that the drink does taste like Irish stout, but nobody really knows how to process that information. Isn’t Starbucks breaking some kind of fourth wall or something by trying to mimic the one beverage Americans might love more than coffee?

10 Beers To Drink In Case You Care That Pabst Is Being Bought Out By A Russian Company

OH NOES! Pabst Brewing Company is being bought out by Russian company Oasis. This doesn’t just mean that the Russians will own PBR — they’ll also own Schlitz, Old Milwaukee, and Colt 45. No one knows what this will mean for American fans of horrible, horrible beer, partially because it’s probable that nothing will change on the consumer’s end, but I’m just going to go ahead and speculate that there will never be any PBR for Americans ever again anyway, because it amuses me to do so.

I don’t think it’s that much of a loss, honestly. There are bars in Chicago that have been charging four dollars for PBR. FOUR DOLLARS. FOR THAT RANK PISS-WATER. The first time I drank beer, I had Left Handed Milk Stout, and I’ve pretty much stuck to that and Revolution’s Eugene Porter since then. (OK, Domaine DuPage is really good, too.) (And Bell’s Two Hearted.) (And everything from Half Acre.) (YEAH I DRINK LOCAL I’M A HIPSTER OK WHATEVER.) But I finally broke down and had PBR at a pre-party for a play because they were giving it away for free. And, you know, when it’s free, PBR isn’t half-bad. But four dollars isn’t free. That’s highway robbery. Keep reading »

Chicago Is Officially The Best Drinking City in America

Chicago Is Officially the Best Drinking City in America

BOOM, SON! I’ve been saying this for years, but now GQ has officially validated my opinion: Chicago is the best place to drink in the United States. Even my fellow Chicagoans are like “Oh, everyone drinks everywhere.” Nuh-uh, bro. Chicago cares way more about its liquor than any other city I’ve been to in America. Come to town and I’ll meet you at Scofflaw for some Aviations. [GQ]
