The Mens Room Original Red brewed by Elysian Brewing of Seattle, Washington was recently released and has been flying off the shelves since its debut on August 25th. The frenzy that has been fueled by this beer has the heads of local retailers and bars spinning as they can’t seem to keep it in stock or on tap.
You might be asking – Mens Room? Seriously? What kind of name is that for a beer? To better put this into perspective, The Mens Room is an afternoon drive-time radio show broadcasting on the local rock station 99.9 KISW. Miles Montgomery, Steve “The Thrill” Hill, Ben the Psycho Muppet, and Thee Ted Smith round out the cast who hold court on the radio daily discussing the odd, disturbing, and comical topics that come about in daily life and they don’t hold back on professing their love for so-called sinful activities like drinking and smoking. Every weekday night at 5pm they hold the “Shot of the Day” toasting someone or something that has either done something wonderful, or horribly embarrassing. See the full post »

Miller Highlife Sausages or Plinywurst?
All summer Hillshire Farms has been assailing unsuspecting craft beer lovers with commercials for their brats boiled in Miller High Life. What in the world is a hungry craft beer obsessed individual to do? The answer, seek out quality links made from the finest heirloom pork and imbued with, you guessed it, craft beer.
At Northern California’s beloved temple of pork the Fatted Calf you can buy craft beer links made with everything from a seasonal brew by 21 Amendment to Russian River Brewing Company’s highly-coveted Pliny the Elder. According to Fatted Calf owner, Taylor Boetticher, they switch the type beer up weekly and only use heritage pork from either Hudson Ranch or Heritage Foods USA, which makes for one amazing craft sausage.
You can find Fatted Calf Craft Beer Links at the following locations:
- The Oxbow Public Market, 644c First Street Napa
- Berkeley Saturday Farmer’s Market, Center Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Milvia Street
- Ferry Plaza Saturday Farmer’s Market, 1 Ferry Building
- Coming soon to Hayes Valley.

Mission: To provide unusual and tasty, hop infused candies for candy lovers and beer drinkers alike.
Not gonna lie. I love beer. And I love chocolate. But combining the two passions? Sounds down right insane, if you ask me. But then, I like to think that insanity and genius are bedfellows and, well, as insane as this concept may seem, it is also brilliant.
Let me introduce to to Phillip Green, the Founder and Owner Hop Candy Inc., and the man just crazy (or it it genius?) enough to put hops in chocolate. See the full post »
