|Protect The Stache
The proliferation of hipster culture and
lumbersexuals means more guys seem to be
rocking facial hair these days. Now those
beer-swigging mustachioed men no longer have
to suffer the injustice of a wet stache between
sips of beer. Introducing the Whisker Dam, a
handcrafted copper cuff dressed with a timeless
patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier; that
fits on the edge of a standard pint glass to
protect prized upper lip hair. The makers of
Whisker Dam call it an umbrella for your face so
it could be used as anti-milk mustache device or
no-foam nose guard when sipping your latte.
A new beer, called the Problem Solver, claims to
offer just the right amount of alcohol to enhance
your creative thinking skills. The brew is based
on research at University of Illinois at Chicago
which found that the average person's creative
peak' is reached at an alcohol level of 0.075%.
Inspired by those findings, Danish brewers,
Rocket Brewing, is making a beer designed to hit
a person's creative peak. The IPA has an alcohol
level of 7.1 % and comes with a chart on the
back of the bottle to shows how much to drink
for optimum effect based on weights for both
men and women to hit the magical .075 %.
Beware- the bottle also says: drinking more
will do the exact opposite.

How silly is it that you are required to write your age in to
access brewery sites every time you access them? For the
record, when we here at BeerNexus have to get into
brewery sites, we always say we're 112 years old.
Check the bottom of your beer glass for laser-etched
concentric shapes. They aid the production of carbon
dioxide bubbles that rise to form a head. The precise level of
carbon dioxide or nitrogen dissolved in beer impacts taste.
Elizabeth Herndon recently set the women’s world record at
the Beer Mile World Championships with a time of 6:17.76.
Each competitor must consume four beers while running a
mile in 1/4 mile increments. Each beer must be at least 5%
ABV; anyone who pukes or discards a non-empty beer
before the end of the race must run a penalty lap.
Delta is now offering a selection of craft beers on regional
flights. The new brews will allow guests to drink like a local.
Most craft breweries say their beer is best in the first 120
days after leaving the brewery, but this window assumes
cold storage. Beer at room temperature stales much
faster than cold-stored bottles.
Seasonal beers account for 15% to 25% of all craft-beer
sales. During fall and winter seasonals outsell even IPA, the
most popular craft style in the USA.
A typical person can metabolize about one drink per
hour. That translates to one shot of vodka, one
beer, or one glass of wine.
