The Incredible Glowing Beer


Hyper Glow” is a fictional beer that had me very pumped up until I realized that it doesn’t exist, and is was instead an April Fools Day joke. The explanation for the beer is simple:

…our in staff beer chemists took the finest India Pale Ale (brewed with the choicest hops from Belgium farms), carefully added 220 milligrams of caffeine per sixteen ounce bottle, and, through a patent pending process known as ‘Glow Stuff Insertion’, they then inserted glow stuff. The result is a stimulating depressant which looks like runoff from Three Mile Island but tastes just like beer with caffeine and glow stuff in it!

Brilliant, but fake.

Clue 1 – It offers to throw in a free stomach pump if you include your shipping address.

Clue 2 – Tells you to hold your ID up to the screen to verify.

Clue 3 – A page proclaiming that this product is a fake appears when you try to order.

    I was truly bummed out to find out this was a joke. I mean… caffeine.. AND glow in the dark — what a rad beer. Well, I guess I’ll just have to back to pouring half a red bull in my beers… yum.
