An impressive display of brew from the San Diego Brewers Guild.
The beer scene was well represented at the Mutineer Magazine National Launch Party presented by Paso Creek on May 18 at Falcon Hollywood.
The San Diego Brewers Guild brought twenty-eight different brews including AleSmith, Alpine Beer Co., Ballast Point, and Green Flash just to name a few. The San Diego Brewer’s Guild is on a mission to share the fine beers of San Diego with the world, a mission that duly carried at the Launch Party. See the full post »
The last time we wrote about an alcohol novelty gun, things got crazy in a Chewbacca meets Chuck Norris kind of way. This new, self-described “Sub Machine Gun Beer Bong” isn’t actually a beer bong best I can tell, but it is still a glass shaped like a “1927-A1 sub-machine gun”, and that is good enough for me. The gun-glass holds 650 ml of beer (or absinthe), and is sure to make it look like you’re trying WAY too hard at the next party you attend.
The only thing wrong with the Guinness “body parts” ad campaign is that it isn’t featured in Mutineer Magazine, but last night a leprechaun told me in a dream that this would soon change, so now I’m just waiting for the phone to ring… See the full post »
This is a video compilation of one miracle beer pong shot after another by students at Olivet University in Illinois.
The beer pongers are Matt Compton, Steve Olson, David Anderson and Michael Schimp, and their beer pong antics have made it all the way to an obscure page on Sport Illustrated’s website. See the full post »
Did you see the post about the American Craft Beer Week? The Declaration of Beer Independence is a part of those festivities, and according to the Brewers Association, more than 4,900 people have signed the declaration. This thing is very cool; drawing a line in the sand and making a statement about what beer is and can be. See the full post »

American Craft Beer Week is right around the corner, starting on May 11 and running through May 17. Beer drinkers across the United States can look forward to events and festivals put on by their favorite breweries, and that’s cool for sure, but did you know that Colbert Nation is pumping this thing up? Oh yes, this is the real deal, so real, in fact, that the House of Representatives has pumped it up with House Resolution 753, recognizing ACBW as being the real deal. See the full post »
The World Beer Festival held at Moore Square in downtown Raleigh, NC this past Saturday was designed with the beer lover in mind and not for the faint of heart. Put on each year by All About Beer Magazine, I assure you this festival is the real deal. With over 105 breweries nestled under 30,000 square feet of tents, along with food, music, and other vendors, there is something for everybody and you WILL have a good time. With two sessions, one from 12:00-4:00 and the other from 6:00-10:00, we had planned on going to the first one and then heading home. This proved to be difficult as we could only make it through one of the two tents in the first session, and ala our press passes, we conveniently stayed for the second session as well. You are given a tasting glass that is to be filled with 2-ounces of delicious beer so you are sober enough to make it through a good number of the breweries. But the breweries being as generous as they are would fill on average 3-4 ounces or maybe even more. In lieu of this, and the fact that I tried every brewery there and some more than once, it’s safe to say that I consumed over 400-ounces of beer in between noon and 10:00PM, not including the beer I had at the bar afterwards. It’s not an easy job, but someone needs to be out there getting the exciting stories. See the full post »
