The Brits make fun of us for calling our small beers served in bars “pints.” A true pint is 16 ounces. Now Michigan is outlawing selling anything called a pint if it is actually smaller than 16 ounces. Nice!
From Breitbart here:
A bill in the Michigan Legislature would stop bars and restaurants from selling pints of beer that are less than 16 ounces. It’s a way of protecting consumers, allowing them to get what they pay for. Whether it means bar owners use bigger glasses, or stop calling the smaller glasses pints, remains to be seen.

Electrolytes. Its what plants crave. And hungover people.
From Australiantimes here:
SAY goodbye to the dreaded Monday morning hangover, thanks to researchers from a Queensland university who have discovered it may be possible to improve the hydrating effects of beer.
Since the beginning of time, it seems sipping on a frosty cold beer has been a necessity on a scorching hot day. This can be counter-intuitive at times, given alcohol actually increases dehydration and leads to drunkenness, risky behavior and eventually, the hangover.
However, researchers from Griffith University’s Health Institute may have answered every Australians prayers. They have found that by adding electrolytes, a common ingredient found in sports drinks, and reducing the alcohol content could make a beer more refreshing than ever.
As part of the study the Institute manipulated the electrolyte levels of two commercial beers, one that was regular strength and one that was light. They then gave those two beers to volunteers who had been heavily exercising just before consumption to test their fluid recovery.
The study showed that the light beer that had been combined with electrolytes was one third more effective at hydrating a person than a regular beer. The best news for beer drinkers was that the taste of the modified beverages didn’t change.
Or, you could just drink Gatorade. Or put a little salt in the foamy head of the beer. Its cheaper, keeps the alcohol, and provides a natural electrolyte to replenish losses that occur when drinking.

Well why not? Spend your time drinking, you may as well keep track online.
From FoxNews here:
Toasting with new friends just got a futuristic, and slightly creepy, upgrade.
Budweiser recently unveiled the “Buddy Cup,” a pint glass with a built-in chip that connects to Facebook. The cup automatically connects people on Facebook when they clink glasses with another “Buddy Cup” user, creating a virtual friendship instantly.
The cup’s promotional video shows the glass being tested in Brazil as images of drinkers enjoyably clinking pints flash across the screen.
“So, they just did the same as always: Went out drinking Bud, and making new friends,” a male narrator announces in the company’s commercial. “Buddy Cup: the more Buds, the more friends.”
Me? Still looking for a twitter-based Tequila shotglass.

Good news for those beer drinkers- an ingredient in hops may stave off bacteria that causes pneumonia and other illnesses according to a study by Sapporo, a beer maker in Japan.
From the DC here:
Consuming large quantities of a key ingredient in beer can protect against winter sniffles and even some serious illnesses in small children, a Japanese brewery said citing a scientific study.
A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said Wednesday.
In research with scientists at Sapporo Medical University, the compound — humulone — was found to be effective in curbing the respiratory syncytial (RS) virus.
And I’m no doctor, but the women in this photo look VERY healthy to me.

130 Proof. Its 50 bucks per bottle and is freeze-brewed to get the high alcohol content.
From OddityCentral here:
Appropriately named Armageddon, the new beer from Scotland’s Brewmeister Brewery will probably end your days if you drink too much of it. The potent concoction has an alcohol content of 65% by volume. That’s stronger than vodka or whiskey.
Although the Guinness Book of Records has yet to certify Armageddon as the world’s strongest beer, that hasn’t stopped Brewmeister from slapping the unofficial title on the label. And who can blame them, after all, that’s what makes their drink so special. Company co-founder, Lewis Shand says Armageddon “is closer to a liquor than a beer, but it is classified as a beer and we are pleased with it.” He added that “it delivers a supersonic-charged explosion and delivers the drinker to Drunksville”. That’s probably why Brewmeister’s brewers have cautioned that the beer should be sipped and served in small doses.
I’ll take a shot or two of that.
