AT-AT Liquor Cabinet

Behold the AT-AT liquor cabinet, that or the most elaborate cocaine storage and entertainment dispenser in existence. It looks to stand around five feet tall and is made from wood and brass hardware. Nobody is really sure who built the All Terrain Armored Transport since these images just magically appeared last week without anyone claiming [...]

Boxed Beer: Wine Says WTF?

Recent industrial design graduate Thomas Hussey has gone and done something damn brilliant. He developed Kegless, which is as you can guess from the title and the picture above, boxed beer. Wait. You thought that was an apple juice dispenser? You're an idiot. Moving on. Focusing on environmental and cost concerns, Thomas created the unique [...]

Bacon AT-AT

I needed a follow up to last year’s BA-K-47 for our 2nd annual Bacon Day. The Bacon AT-AT was actually what I wanted to build before, but didn’t have enough time, so it seemed like the natural choice. The Bacon AT-AT stands 3 ft tall and is made with over 40 lbs of bacon. The body was made from foam, then the bacon was attached. This beast took 21 non-stop hours to build. If you’ve ever once thought to cook 40 lbs of bacon in your kitchen in one sitting, I can now personally advise against it.

Sink the Bismark!: Scottish Brewery Makes 41% Quadruple IPA

Tomorrow is the day we get shit-hammered in celebration of the life of a patron saint who nobody really knows anything about. The Scottish gents over at the BrewDog Brewery, the same gents that unleashed Tactical Nuclear Penguin on the world, just re-created the world’s strongest beer. Sink the Bismark! is a quadruple IPA, with an alcohol content of 41%! This ABV makes this beer more alcoholic than whiskey or vodka.

This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers  a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

Before you get too excited though, you should know this sweet golden nectar isn’t cheap. The good folks over at Beer Utopia found out a single 11 oz bottle will run you $61 (or 140 Pabsts Blue Ribbons). Brewdog will ship to the states, but that brings the total cost to $120 (or 240 Miller High Lifes). It looks like I’ll be sticking to U.S. Select Beer Taste for my St. Paddy’s Day needs.

Drinking Saved A 13-Year-Old Boy's Life

13-year-old Evan Hamilton was dared by his friends to take eight shots of tequila as fast as he could. Evan passed out and was rushed to the emergency room to be treated for alcohol poisoning. While at the UC Davis Medical Center, Evan went through a CT scan, which revealed a brain tumor. After seven [...]

AT-AT & Millennium Falcon Cakes

Jennifer Luxmore of Sin Dessert made these two badass Star Wars cakes. The cake artists said they put in around 60 hours to build the AT-AT cake. Interested in having one made? Well, that's gonna set you back a cool $5,000. Jennifer also made the Millennium Falcon, which was a groom's cake for one of her friends. [...]
