Earlier this week we mentioned that Short’s provides plenty of good things to write about. Here is another beer to back that up. If you don’t want to put some beer in your s’mores, maybe you should at least consider putting some s’mores in your beer. S’more Stout is stout brewed with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.Continue Reading Leave a Comment

Well it’s all good stuff but is it good together? Here is Bloody Beer. The people at Short’s also provide plenty to write about, such as this gem. Bloody Beer is beer brewed with tomatoes, with added pepper, celery seed, horseradish and dill. From the description, it looks like the tomatoes are added during brewing but the rest is added after.Continue Reading Leave a Comment
Boston Beer has finally answered the big question eluding so many since the 1980s — “where’s the beef?” It’s right here, in the beer bottle. Burke in the Bottle is “Ale Brewed with Beef and Spices with Molasses Added.” Throw in a side of broccoli and we are all set for the evening. If this guy and Sam Adams think it’s worth drinking, who are we to cast aspersions? For Meaty Booze aficionados, here is Meaty Booze 1 (worms), 2 (scorpion), 3 (chicken), and 4 (bugs).Continue Reading Leave a Comment
Long Trout Winery has quite a few eccentric labels. Some of them are eccentric due to the unusual blend of ingredients. But quite a few of them are eccentric in referring to the panoply of human sexual organs. Featured above are the trusty Swollen Member, the good old German Helmet, and Old One Eye. The latter is made with tomatoes, raisins, onions, sweet peppers, celery, string beans, carrots, hot peppers, parsley, horseradish, garlic and soy sauce. Would you drink it? Long Trout is in Auburn, Pennsylvania. Before we depart the topic of Long Trout and their risque labels we’d be derelict if we did not mention this label about everyone’s favorite garden implement.http://bevlog.bevlaw.com/tag/would-you-drink-itContinue Reading Leave a Comment
Time Magazine calls the above beer one of the world’s strongest. It looks to be considerably stronger than any beer that the US rules can tolerate. In other countries, Tactical Nuclear Penguin is sold as a beer, at 32% alc./vol. But this approval shows that, under US rules, this “Super-High-Alcohol-Beer” is actually a distilled spirit (Spirits Distilled from Grain). The Time article explains how BrewDog uses low temperatures to get the alcohol content so high:
the brewery was able to attain the high alcohol content by freezing the beer at a local ice cream factory, at temperatures as low as -6°C (21°F), for 21 days. Alcohol freezes at lower temperatures than water, and removing water from the solution increased the alcohol concentration.
Under US law, such manipulation of the alcohol may be treated as distillation. The Time article points to two even stronger products that at least start as normal beers (before becoming tactical or nuclear):
The drinking games continued in February when a German brewer, Schorschbrau, released a 40% ABV beer called Schorschbock. The BrewDog boys fired back a few weeks later with high-octane concoction Sink the Bismarck!, which checks in at 41%, enough to reclaim the “world’s strongest beer” mantle. …
There is no sign that these...Continue Reading Leave a Comment
