Anheuser Busch has a brand new tasty beverage on the market for the Latino community. Its the Chelada. It’s Budweiser beer mixed with tomato juice and clam juice.
No word as yet if this comes with a barf bag.
Beer Advocate’s users are mixed on the taste.
I have been drinking red beer for years…finally, I can buy it at the store ready to drink! This beer has an excellent taste. I love it!
It has a full body taste with an added dash of salt and lime. It has a great after taste. I could drink this all day!
Thank you Anheuser Busch!
Looks almost exactly like a glass of cranberry ginger ale. In retrospect, I much rather would have had a glass of that. Smells strongly of tomato juice, and slightly of clams, which is what I remember Clamato smelling like. Has a strange soda-like fizz to it as well.
Tastes a lot like someone was going to make a Bloody Mary, but couldn’t find any vodka, so they used Budweiser instead. Then used way too much salt. Then decided to juice assorted sea creatures into the mix. The lime the can claims is in there seems strangely nonexistent. If it did exist, I’m not sure it would help.
I’ve never had the misfortune of drinking a glass of fish blood, but I expect this is what it tastes like.
This is not a beer. This is the worst Bloody Mary ever created. Avoid it like the plague.
Only sampled a very small glass at a neighbors on Thanksgiving. Red and cloudy, like tomato soup with Srpite and milk mixed in.
Aroma is like concentrated Long Island Sound. Brine and spice with a distince dead sea creature nuance.
Flavor is so bad I can scarsely describe it. Pain. Fear. Agony. This is what cancer tastes like.
Body is akin to tomato soup mixed with Diet Sprite. Filthy and undrinkable.

Neatorama has a great post about the Tennessee whiskey maker here. Check it out!
Jack Daniel had a brilliant mind for marketing. Even as a youngster, Jack understood that if people remembered him, they would remember his whiskey. To that end, he decked himself out in a formal knee-length coat, a vest, a tie, and a wide-brim planter’s hat, and was never caught out of “uniform” again.
Jack also established the Jack Daniel’s Silver Cornet Band – a 10-member outfit solely devoted to promoting his whiskey across the countryside. With uniforms and instruments from the Sears & Roebuck catalog and a specially designed wagon for traveling, Jack made sure the band played every saloon opening, Fourth of July celebration, and political rally around.
I usually don’t drink much of the stuff, preferring beer. Its great for cooking and barbecuing though!

As a bartender, you need to watch who you leave at the bar. And if you are left alone in the bar, don’t hide or you’ll pay for it in the end. Click to watch.

This one is short and sweet, yet powerful. Porek forcefully ejects this one with gusto.

I love this time of year! I love it for the food almost more than the cheery festive decorations and toys. One of the best things about the season is eating Honey Baked Ham. I am fortunate enough to live very close to a Honey Baked Ham franchise, and two days before Christmas, the whole neighborhood is filled with the delicious aroma of baked ham. Thousands of people stand in line to pick up their orders in a maze of velvet ropes, winding between free samples and holiday treats. If you haven’t ordered yours yet, time’s running out.
Behold the tasty.

If you went to the BK Lounge and they told you that they were no longer making Whoppers, what would you do? Freak out? Burger King wondered the same thing and this is the result below.

Wow, I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often. There is not much in the way of security at most beer distributors.
From Reuters here:
A thief made off with 180 kegs of Guinness beer after smoothly driving into the Dublin brewery which makes the black stout and snatching a trailer load of drink, police said on Thursday.
The lone raider’s haul also contained 180 kegs of Budweiser and 90 barrels of Carlsberg lager, police said.
“A man drove into the yard in a truck and took a trailer containing the drink which has an estimated value of 64,000 euros (46.000 pounds),” a police spokesman said.
That Budweiser is the good stuff too. Bud in the UK tastes so much better than it does here in the US because they use more alcohol, which gives the familiar beer the full-bodied flavor it deserves.

This is so cute and hilarious! I have a kid just about the same age, but he won’t laugh at my burps. But this baby thinks its hilarious, and is laughing so hard I’m afraid he may end up stuttering.

100 Year Old Jack Daniels Whiskey may be poured down the drain because the person selling it didn’t have a license to do so. This would be a travesty.
3 Liters of Jack?
From the AP here:
Here’s a sobering thought: Hundreds of bottles of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, some of it almost 100 years old, may be unceremoniously poured down a drain because authorities suspect it was being sold by someone without a license.
Officials seized 2,400 bottles late last month during warehouse raids in Nashville and Lynchburg.
Tennessee law requires officials to destroy whiskey that cannot be sold legally in the state, such as bottles designed for sale overseas and those with broken seals.
The estimated value of the liquor is $1 million, possibly driven up by the value of the antique bottles, which range from 3-liter bottles to half-pints.
One seized bottle dates to 1914, with its seal unbroken. Elks said it is worth $10,000 on the collectors market. Investigators are looking into whether the liquor was being sold for the value of the bottles rather than the whiskey.

Good things come to those who wait. The same can be said for this amazing commercial for Guinness, which features some people tumbling dominoes, which then escalates into suitcases, flaming bales of hay, upended cars and finally, a large pint glass made from books, whose flipping pages looks like the glass is being filled with the magic dark ale.

I always thought this might be the case.
A scientific study has shown that beer after a workout helps speed recovery. From the Register here:
Almost exactly a month after we leared that drinking beer makes you clever, a Spanish scientist has proved that the golden grog is also better at rehydrating the human body after exercise.
Manuel J Castillo Garzón, Professor of Human Physiology from Spain’s University of Granada, got a bunch of students to run around in temperatures of 40°C then gave half of them a half-pint of beer while the rest got the same amount of water.
The Spanish prof reckons the bubbles and carbohydrates in beer help quench the thirst and replace lost calories, according to The Telegraph.
And of course, you could just skip the exercising altogether and not have to worry about hydrating at all.

There was quite a bit of drinking going on aboard the Starship Enterprise. Every other episode featured someone smuggling Saurian Brandy or Romulan Ale. The whole breakdown of who was chugging what aboard the Enterprise can be found at Modern Drunkard’s Magazine here.
When a gang of super beings who’ve taken human form hijack the Enterprise, Kirk decides to undo them by appealing to their new-found human sensations. Kirk goes for the seduction (natch), McCoy employs his powers of irritation and Scotty brings into play his own special strength—he tries to drink one of them under the table.
“Lad, you’re gonna need something to wash that down with,” Scotty says, strolling over to where the alien Tomar eats. “Have you ever tried any Saurian brandy?” Tomar shakes his head no and they repair to Scotty’s quarters for an interspecies drink-off. They drink every bottle of brandy Scotty has on hand, which is saying something because Scotty was apparently stocked up for a very long drought. Tomar is hanging in there like an Irish uncle and Scotty decides it’s time to go for the big guns, dragging out his treasured bottle of Ganymede Scotch. Talk about self-sacrifice. Tomar inquires, “What is it?” All Scotty can squeeze out is, “Well, it’s . . . um . . . it’s green.” (Data would repeat the exact same line when he produced the bottle in the aforementioned encounter with Scotty.)
They tuck into the scotch and just before they polish it off Tomar takes a dive. Scotty, his job done, takes a little nap himself seconds later. Humans: 1 Super Aliens: 0.

Beer was invented in the Middle East. Or maybe the ancient arabs conquered someone who knew how to brew it. But now the Middle East has almost completely banned the best thing it ever invented in the name of Islam. There is still beer to be had, but it has no alcohol. I’ve never tried it because really, beer without the alcohol? What’s the point? One of the most popular in Saudi Arabia is Moussy Beer.
And they have beer commercials too, but it mostly involves dudes dancing with each other because, well, chicks ain’t allowed out in public to mingle with men in Saudi Arabia.
Thanks to Stilletos In the Sand for the link to Moussy.
