And you thought Four Loko was a bad idea ...
By Sam Adams [ Wed Oct 26 2011 7:00 PM ]
It’s getting late. Been a long day. Getting ready to leave the office. Guess I should check my inbox to see if any last minute suicide threats have come in from my freelancers ... OK, all good on that front. Time to go. Wait— what’s this! NutLiquor?!? What in f*@^’s name is NutLiquor? Sounds like something you find in a Silo cup on a bedside table after a frat party. Sounds like— I digress ...
Turns out it’s peant butter-flavored vodka. Tagline: “Like Drinking the Inside of a Peanut Butter Cup at 69 Proof!” Hmm. Yum! I’m sold. Just cancelled my trick-or-treating plans, in fact. I’ll be cozying up to a nice NutLiquor highball this Halloween. How about you?

What’s the Best Beer Ever Made That I Can Afford?
By Edith P. Giblets [ Mon Feb 1 2010 12:13 PM ]
Sorting through my bags of fan mail, one thing’s become clear: You’re all very invested in how my move to the Heights is going. Swimmingly, thank you public. Lots of painting, and then wrapping up packing, then painting.
Which means beer.
Husband was kind enough to grab a 12-pack of black label Session beer, which is made by Full Sail. It is so-so tasting and almost always on sale. Now, since I didn’t buy it, it’s free, which makes it awesome. But, I’m bored of it. I want more hoppy deliciousness. Or lager-y. Or malty. Whatever. What is the best beer ever made? $18-a-pint ales made from the tears of Russian orphans, while always a favorite, do not count. Under $10 a six-pack, Internet contributors.
