MLB Says No To Yankees

Major League Baseball warned the New York Yankees  that a
plan to display images of Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and
other players imprinted in beer sold at Yankee Stadium would
violate league policy.

A media tasting event at Yankee Stadium showcased a
technology that can imprint player likenesses into beer and
coffee foam. The Yankees' concessions team showed images
of outfielders Judge and Stanton, catcher Gary Sanchez and
closer Aroldis Chapman, as well as a Yankees logo, floating in
the head of a cup of beer.  What, no Babe Ruth?

Brewery Says Yes To Tarantula

Bull City Burger and Brewery’s special menu item. The
Durham, North Carolina, brewpub takes their beers seriously
and has never “met a meat they wouldn’t eat.” On the menu
this month: a tarantula burger. In order to get the chance to
sink your teeth into Bull City’s tarantula burger, you have to
enter the Tarantula Challenge and hope to win a raffle for the
pleasure. That’s right, if you want the chance to eat a giant
spider on a hamburger, you’re going to have to get really
lucky. Mr. Brewski can guarantee that no one at Beer-
Nexus will be entering.

Contestants in the challenge must inquire at the brewpub and
provide their name and phone number to be contacted if they
win. To date over 150 people have entered the Tarantula
Challenge. If your raffle number is posted on the brewery’s
social media channels, you have two days to claim the chance
to dine on the North Carolina pasture-raised beef burger
adorned with an oven roasted tarantula, spicy chili sauce and
a side of fries for $30.
