Joaquín Alcaraz Gracia had just been crowned “King of Beer Drinking” in a chugging contest in Spain when he started vomiting nonstop. The goal of the contest is to drink as many liters of beer as possible in 20 minutes and Garcia drank six liters, breaking the contest record. The poor guy was coherent for long enough to hold up his trophy in glory, but his condition deteriorated quickly, reported the UK’s Daily Mail.

This may be a big week for ga -rights activists, America, and, like, history. But it’s also a big week for all us chocolate peanut butter lovers out there. That’s right, Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter has descended from the heavens (or Abington, Maryland) and graced us with its sweet, sudsy presence. For a measly $10 at DuClaw Brewing, you can get buzzed on the chocolately-peanut-buttery libation that actually tastes and smells like a chocolate peanut cup, according to Uncrate. No word on where else in the States it’s hopping (heh) up next, but sweet baby Jesus, we hope it’s in ours. [Uncrate]
My life is basically a never-ending episode of “I Love the ’90s.” Even so, I have never been a fan of Hanson. Still, I am mighty impressed that they have taken the Song That Must Not Be Named, and parlayed it into a beverage company. The company’s been around since 2011, but this week, they hit Hollywood — their MMMhops brew was served at the “Hangover 3″ premiere. Ed Helms drank the stuff! With Taylor Hanson. (He was always the cute one).
Check out the new Pale Ale bottle after the jump — and just try not to get that song stuk in your head. [Twitter] Keep reading »
It always starts the same way: “Come out for drinks!”
Maybe, I think to myself. I need to do more research.
“What’s the name of the place?” I ask. ”O’Dooley’s Irish McIrishman Pub,” someone says.
I get a pit in my stomach. I fire up Google. I find the page on MenuPages. My fears are confirmed: yup, this place only serves beers and offers a dinky wine list.
“I’m going to pass,” I say.
“But come onnnnnnnnn. You never come ouuttttttt,” someone whines. That’s because I want to go somewhere where I can get a fucking fancy cocktail. Keep reading »
Listen up, girlfriends: While your gift of cuddly pajamas or a vintage flask is appreciated, we know what dudes — dudes who haven’t been through AA and are not mildly functioning alcoholics — want. And that’s alcohol. Tasty, delicious, drunk-making alcohol.
So we asked a couple of Certified Dudes what kind of strong stuff they’d like a girl to get them for Ye Olde Holidays. We spoke to Tyghe Trimble, Senior Editor at Men’s Journal, and bartender and booze guru Justin Lane Brings, of Brooklyn resto Bellwether, for their recommendations. Keep reading »
Do you love beer but find it annoying that you have to drink so much of it to build up a nice solid buzz? Meet Armageddon beer, a Scottish concoction that’s 65% alcohol by volume and, according to the company co-founder, “delivers a supersonic-charged explosion and delivers the drinker to Drunksville.” In order to create a beer that’s so high in alcohol, the brewers used a unique freeze fermentation process that results in a beer that’s malty and hoppy, with a “viscous quality.” Still interested? The brew won’t be sold in the United States (most of the beers here are less than 10% alcohol), but you can get yourself a bottle on the Brewmeister website for $65. “Consume this like a fine whiskey,” the company reminds drinkers, and we must agree. Don’t forget that there’s a fine line between Drunksville and Alcohol Poisoning Town. [Oddity Central]
