BrewDog Launches a Tactical Nuclear Strike on German Brewer Schorschbrau


Those cheeky punks at BrewDog are up to it again. This time, they’ve picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Schorschbrau who bumped BrewDog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin off of the “world’s strongest beer” throne earlier this month with their Schorschbock. The only way they could have made this promo video funnier is if they had put Biz Markee in a penguin costume. Oh BrewDog youuu; you got what I neeeeed. Unfortunately, I’ll never get to taste it because the West Coast Mutineer Armory intercepts these kind of packages. The Villains! See the full post »

The Taste of Victory


Jon Montgomery

I’ve been glued to the Winter Olympics for the past week and a half. Like most of you, I’ve become addicted to curling (it’s okay to admit it…there are others like you out there), and I’m pretty disappointed by NBC’s coverage. It’s too stage managed and stale. You have to jump through mammoth hoops to even watch stuff online.

So it is with great joy that I show you this video as a tribute to our neighbors of the Great White North. Jon Montgomery won a gold medal in skeleton and on the way back from his run, a fan hands him a pitcher of beer. CTV caught it on camera and then played it on the air. If you look closely, you see the cops walking right next to him. Completely unscripted and the fan wasn’t tased. This was truly an epic Olympic beverage moment!

See the video.

Beer…It Does a Body Good


Skeleton Drinking Beer

Wine and beer folks are always trying to one up each other about their respective beverage’s health effects. Wine folks have volumes of research backing them up. They even have supplements like resveratrol that are derived from red wine grapes. Beer guys sometimes go out on a limb regarding health benefits (It makes you look cool…which boosts your self esteem…which contributes to your mental health…right?).

Well the suds soldiers finally have a legit arrow in their quiver. A study by brew friendly school, UC Davis, finds that beer has silicon in it which contributes to bone mineral density.

Yup, drinking beer can toughen up your bones and you don’t even have to hit your shins with a baseball bat like Muay Thai fighters. I’m really happy to know this because with all the beer I drink, I may have a super-skeleton like Wolverine.  I wonder if I keep up my beer consumption if one day I’ll get a bottle opener that will retract into my hand. One can only dream…

Fine Beverages of LOST


Dharma Beer

We’re all fans of LOST here aboard the Mutineer frigate, so it’s only fitting that we highlight fine beverage references in the show being that the season just kicked off on Tuesday. While the series is rife with fine beverage, I wanted to focus on what is provided by the benevolent Dharma Initiative. See the full post »
