  • WINE, BEER, & BOOZE PAIRINGS FOR EVERY THANKSGIVING DISH [INFOGRAPHIC]

    Everybody knows to pair with the main dish, but if you’re looking to maximize your alcohol intake, why not try pairing with every dish? It may seem daunting to come up with the best wine, beer, and liquor to imbibe with all the different foods at Thanksgiving, but fear not, for the boozehounds at Vinepair have done all the work. Protip: If you want to try each paring, be sure to just take a sip of your drink or you will most certainly be dead before you can get that sweet deal on McAfee Antivirus at Walmart on Friday.

  • The Lowdown On Hops [Infographic]

    For the most part, beer is made up of water, malt, hops, and yeast. Water, malt, and yeast are used for plenty of other things, too, so we’re all pretty familiar with them. But what exactly are hops? Why and how are they so important to making delicious brews? Let Scottish brewery BrewDog teach you all about the flavorful flowers with this informative infographic.

  • This Smart Shaker Will Transform The Way You Make Cocktails

    Step into any hip bar these days and everyone will be sipping on cocktails such as a Rob Roy, a Tom Collins, or even a Joe Cucci (Sambuca and Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur), but unless you’re that dude who mentored Tom Cruise in “Cocktail,” (you’re not, because—spoiler alert—he dies) when you try to recreate those drinks at home, you invariably fail. Don’t fret! Instead of drowning your sorrows in a poorly mixed concoction, get your hands on a B4RM4N and make perfect drinks every time. The B4RM4N is a smart shaker that communicates with an iOS or Android app and ensures you’re following over 100 cocktail recipes every step of the way. From the amount of each ingredient to the type of ice needed (crushed or cubed) to the time you spend shaking, everything is monitored via the shaker and app. And if you don’t know what cocktail to make, just put in what ingredients you have on hand and the B4RM4N app will offer you suggestions. How can you get your hands on one? The B4RM4N is currently raising money on Kickstarter, but with over $40,000 of the $100,000 goal raised, funding shouldn’t be an issue. And early backers more »

  • Budweiser’s Classic Bottles Look Great In The RSVLTS Beer Fridge

    Ahh the vintage beer craze. Just when you thought it was going to peak with Miller Lite’s 1970s-era cans Budweiser decided to jump on board with their limited edition #HolidayBuds campaign. We were lucky enough to receive a classic inspired wooden crate, which were released across America this week, and we must tip our hat to the King of Beers, because they actually did a great job not only with the crates, which were handmade by a North Carolina shop called Vintage Editions, but also with the bottle labels which are exact replicas from Budweiser’s past, 1918 (beginning of Prohibition), 1933 (end of Prohibition) or 1976 (the brand’s 100th anniversary).

  • The World’s Best Whisky Is From Japan?

    Since 2003, English writer and journalist Jim Murray has shared his take on the world’s greatest whisky in his annual book on the subject Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. And each year whisky aficionados could count on a Scottish distillery to at least appear in the top five, if not in the number one slot. But this year, for the first time ever, there is no Scotch whisky in the top five. In fact, the number one spot didn’t go to an Irish or American whiskey, either. After sampling 4,700 whiskies, Murray gave top honors to Japan’s Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013. The Yamazaki received a 97.5 out of 100 for its “nose of exquisite boldness”—a sharp contrast to the boring Scottish whiskies which Murray feels have grown complacent and offer very little innovation. If you’re looking for a bottle of the Yamazaki, good luck. Only 18,000 were produced and it will cost you around $200. Or you can check out Murray’s other recommendations when the Whisky Bible 2015 comes out November 11. Pre-order your copy today from Amazon. I don’t know about you, but I think Old Crow has a real good chance this year…

  • Bacardi Triangle: A Weekend Jaunt to Puerto Rico for Pool Parties, Halloween Cocktails and Calvin Harris [Photos + GIFS]

    You can expect three things from Bacardi in 2015. Music, travel and parties. This past weekend we got to experience a taste of what is to come in the next year and as you’ll see from our photos and GIFS, it’s glorious! The world’s most popular rum producer has found that simply slapping their name on title sponsorship of a pre-existing event is not an effective marketing tactic anymore as their fans, who just so happen to “align perfectly with RSVLTS,” according to Bacardi brand reps, are seeking more of an immersive, memorable and epic experiences. We agree. With that knowledge Bacardi has decided to take the lead by producing their very own travel adventures that blend music with exotic party atmospheres to give their fans the opportunity to have a few cocktails in paradise and snap absurdly amazing photos to share with friends who are anxiously following along at home. — Help a bro out, share this story with your friends: Tweet — The first event in this new initiative, which will be expanded upon even further in 2015, was Bacardi Triangle, a three day, super exclusive music festival and travel adventure for 1,862 lucky Bacardi fans, celebrities and lucky friends more »

  • This Cocktail Menu Is Also A Pop-Up Book

    When London’s Savoy Hotel opened in 1889, it was one of the classiest hotels in the world, offering unheard of luxuries such as electric lights and hot water. 125 years later, the Savoy is still one of the world’s premier hotels with an equally impressive Art Deco bar, the Beaufort Bar. Recently the Beaufort Bar unveiled a new cocktail menu, but when you’re serving $40 drinks, an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper with comic sans and fun clip-art just doesn’t cut it. So the bar turned to paper engineer Helen Friel and illustrator Joe Wilson to create up a pop-up book with each signature cocktail receiving it’s own page. Only 1,000 copies of the pop-up menu were printed and you can get one for $80. Considering the price of the drinks, that’s not too bad. And if you can’t make it to London, you can see what you’re missing with this digital 2D menu. Source: Grub Street

  • 5 Simple Cocktails For Your Halloween Party

    Halloween is quickly approaching and if you’re hosting a party, you need to make sure you have the perfect cocktails on hand. The days of offering shots of bottom shelf whiskey and oddly-flavored liqueur (does that say cactus juice schnapps?) chased with light beer are long behind you (hopefully). But you also don’t need to be spending your time on concoctions with 30 ingredients including herbs you never heard of and a variety of expensive bitters you’ll quickly forget about in the back of your liquor cabinet. That’s why Captain Morgan teamed up Owl’s Brew, creators of delicious tea mixers, and celebrity chef Nadia G for these quick and easy cocktails.

And all that eating will undoubtedly make you thirsty. But before you imbibe the first thing you come across, take a look at this guide featuring wine, beer, and booze pairings for popular candies. Now you’ll never make the horrible mistake of drinking a Beaujolais with Skittles or—GASP!—a gueuze with a Kit Kat.

  • Guinness Enters The Luxury Market With New Signature Series

    Guinness, purveyor of the famous dry stout popular all over the world, is trying something a little different this holiday season. The brand, synonymous with workingmen for the last 200 years, is now entering the luxury market with a new Signature Series. The first in this new line, an amber ale, is now available. The 1759 is an amber ale made from a combination of traditional beer malt and fine peated whisky malt and uses the same Guinness yeast that has been used for over 125 years. The classy, black matte bottle is available in the 25.4 oz (750 ml) size familiar to luxury beer lovers and is packaged in a black velvet-lined box. Inspired by a 200 year old recipe, this special beer is limited to just 90,000 bottles. That may sound like a lot, but not when you consider that’s about as much stout as the company produces in an hour. At $34.99 a bottle, it’s priced above even what many premium beer drinkers are used to, but as a one-shot it’s worth the plunge. We sampled a bottle at RSVLTS HQ, chilled and served in a stemless champagne flute as Guinness suggests. If you’re expecting a hoppy more »

  • The Ultimate Guide To Scotch Flavor Profiles [Infographic]

    You try to be a sophisticated man—you own a jazz CD, you can tie at least three knots, you ate a snail one time—but when it comes to scotch, it’s hard to know what you’re doing. For one thing, you have no idea how to pronounce any of the brand names. And when you finally learn one, you tend to stick with it so as to not look like an ass. But there are so many differences in flavor between scotch varieties, from Islay to Speyside to everything in between. To help you out the next time you’re overwhelmed with your scotch choices, take a look at this infographic that breaks down 86 different brands into 12 flavor categories. Unfortunately, when it comes to pronunciation, you’re still on your own.

  • What Country Drinks the Most Beer? [Interactive Infographic]

    When you think of beer consumption around the globe three countries immediately come to mind. Ireland, obviously, you probably picture a green hilly prarie as far as the eye can see with a old wooden pub packed with grizzled men drinking Guinness and bare knuckle boxing their feelings out or you might think of the U.K., a corner pub on a London cobblestone street, where men chant the songs of their soccer team over a New Castle and bare knuckle box their feelings out. Or maybe you think of Germany, an Oktoberfest style beirgarten where picnic tables fill a warehouse style bar and men and women in lederhosen bare knuckle box their feelings out. Well this interactive chart may surprise you, because none of those country’s reign supreme according to Global Beer Consumption by Country and Beerocracy, an interactive map which ranks just that out of the top 50 beer-drinking countries. According to Beerocracy, the U.K., Ireland and Germany don’t even break the top 2, the U.K. doesn’t break the top 20 and ireland doesn’t even break the top 5. Come on. Step up your game Irish. Although the U.S. did beat out the U.K. which gives us Yanks something to brag about. more »

  • This Is The Only Surge Review You Need To Read

    Surge is described by its creator, Coca-Cola Classic of Atlanta, Georgia, as a “citrus flavored soda.” Originally available from 1997-2003 in can, bottle, and syrup concentrate, it has recently been re-released in 16 ounce cans. Although 1990s vintage cans can still be purchased, their exorbitant cost and possibly poisonous contents led me to opt for the 2014, which Coca-Cola swears is still the original recipe. What is that original recipe? A mix of carbonated water, citric acid, natural flavors, and orange juice (less than 1%), sweetened with the most American of sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup. Each 16 ounce can contains 230 calories, 56 grams of sugar, and 69 milligrams of caffeine. It’s like coffee and a donut in one easy package. Surge comes in 12-packs of 16 ounce cans, shrink wrapped in brown cardboard trays. The no-nonsense look of the 12-pack conjures up images of blue-collar workers wiping their calloused, greasy hands on their overalls before popping open a can of Surge to cool down whilst they take a break from turning wrenches, hammering hammers, and other labor-intensive activities that they are forced to repeat ad nauseam until the day they die because of the tragic cycle of poverty. more »

  • Cold-Brew Coffee Made With Whiskey? Make Mine Venti

    Los Angeles-based Fliquor Bean has been working since 2013 on uniting coffee drinkers and, well, drinkers with a concoction of coffee and whiskey. Brainchild of New York native Jerry Defazio, Fliquor Bean is a twist on traditional cold-brew coffee, eschewing water for whiskey. But when you consider that the word whiskey comes from the Irish uisce beatha, meaning “water of life,” it makes total sense. Defazio has experimented with numerous combinations of coffee and whiskey, but his current favorite is Stumptown’s Hair Bender with Bowen’s California Whiskey. Each batch takes 12-14 hours to brew, like normal cold-brewed coffee, and is then ready to be served straight over ice or with some cream and simple syrup if you so choose. Unfortunately, we can’t go out and buy Fliquor Bean. Yet. The company is currently awaiting licensing by state and federal agencies. But when it’s finally available, our mornings will never be the same. For now, be sure to keep up with Fliquor Bean’s goings-on at Twitter. Source: Grub Street

  • Miller Lite’s Retro Can Design Is Winning Over A New Generation

    Late last year, Miller Lite was in trouble. A huge hit when introduced in 1975 as the first mainstream light beer, the brand had seen sales steadily decline since Bud Light overtook its market share in 1994. But then salvation came in the form of the most over-hyped movie in history, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. To tie in with the film’s release, Miller Lite announced a limited, 3-month return to the classic white can of the 1970s. Macrobreweries began to take note of the importance of nostalgia with the success of Pabst Blue Ribbon in the early 2000s. A brand that was near extinction in 2001, PBR managed to turn around by capitalizing on the brand’s historic nature and blue collar simplicity. Millennials latched on to the brew and transformed PBR into the hipster beer of choice despite the almost total lack of marketing. With the return to the classic 1970s can, Miller Lite now had a chance to drop its blue design, adopted in 2001, which made it look like a Bud Light knockoff, and reinvent itself as a classic brand. Did it work? Incredibly so! Sales immediately jumped for the brand, causing Miller Lite to keep the more »

  • Here’s What We Did With Our All Access Pass to Whatever, USA (60 HQ Photos)

    For the past three days we’ve been running around a small town in Colorado that’s been taken over by the biggest beer brand in the world. Coined as Whatever, USA, the small town of Crested Butte, CO was turned on it’s head when their quaint main street was taken over and skinned out in what can only be known as “Bud Light blue” from here on out. The street and light poles were painted BL blue, the sun flared off aluminum blue bottles in every direction for a mile and everywhere you looked, another random street event was diverting your attention. Every bar on the street was open for business, serving free Bud Lights from sun up to sun set. The food at every restaurant, on the house. A literal playground for a lucky 500 adults and their plus-ones who entered and won a contest based off of a ten second answer to a random question in a video booth. If you think that’s a recipe for disaster, that there’s no way 1,000 twenty-somethings, encouraged to drink free beer from dawn till dusk could end well you’d be wrong.  Those marketing genius’ in their “Bud Light Blue” tower at the Anheuser Busch headquarters in more »

  • New Belgium Brewing Enters The Political Arena

    New Belgium Brewing, which grew from a Fort Collins, Colorado basement operation in 1991 to the third-largest craft brewery in the country, filed last month to start the New Belgium Federal PAC. Political action committees are not unheard of in the world of beer, both Anheuser-Busch and Coors have their own PACs, but New Belgium will be the first microbrewery to do so. And their reasons aren’t as obvious as you’d think. Obviously, there will be issues that directly affect microbrewers that the PAC will tackle. For instance, the PAC will fight for The Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce Act (or Small Brew), which would cut the excise tax on beer produced by brewers making less than 6 million barrels a year and currently faces opposition from the nation’s large brewers. But beer-related causes aren’t the only focus. New Belgium Federal PAC will also get involved with environmental policy. Many microbrewers pride themselves on being a part of their local community and using locally-sourced products and New Belgium is no different. With that in mind, water conservation, water quality, sustainable agriculture, and smart transportation are on the agenda. As a company that’s already so involved in the Fort Collins more »

  • Beer In A 99-Pack? Yes, Please!

    Austin Beerworks wanted to get the word out about their Peacemaker Anytime Ale. Since it’s so light that and refreshing that you can drink it anytime (I get it!), you and your friends will probably go through more than a few. Would a 12-pack suffice? Pfft! A 24-pack? What are you a temperance advocate? Austin Beerworks decided a beer like this required something never attempted by man—a 99-pack, proving yet again that everything is bigger in Texas. Unfortunately, the 99-packs will only be available in Austin in limited quantities. Can you hear our cries from Hoboken? They’ll retail for the low price of $99 and will the first 20 will hit stores tomorrow. But thanks to Internet buzz and the unquenchable thirst of Texans in the summertime, more are on the way. If you’re lucky enough to be in Austin (or are looking for a great excuse for a road trip), you can find out where you can purchase a 99-pack of Anytime Ale by checking out Austin Beerworks on Facebook and Twitter.

  • This 1954 Drink Menu From The Plaza Will Make You Wish You Had A Time Machine

    Located on Fifth Avenue just south of Central Park, The Plaza has been one of New York City’s premier hotels for over 100 years. But such popularity and luxury come at a price. Whereas a room cost just $2.50 when the hotel opened in 1907 (about $63 in 2014 dollars), today a room can cost over over $500. Even drinking at the hotel and just pretending to be a guest can cost you, with cocktails starting around $20. But it wasn’t always this way. While browsing the New York Public Library Digital Colelctions, we came across this drink menu from The Plaza from way back in 1954. And boy have times changed. In those days, you could get a cocktail for around $1.20 and even a 20-year-old scotch would only run you $1.65. Sadly we have no time machine to travel back and enjoy those prices from 60 years ago, but at least we can find solace imbibing cheap, old-man beer. And we don’t mean because it drowns away our troubles (although it does!)—at $18 for a 30-pack, you can actually enjoy Schafer for a little less than the 1954 price of 65¢.

    If you’re like me, your first thought is something along the lines of:  And your second thought is: I need it now. Why is this? Well because the only way you’ve gotten through life/education/anything up to this point is with the help of caffeine. And it’s no longer socially acceptable to drink Mountain Dew mixed with Red Bull so… Here we are. Madly addicted to caffeine. And by caffeine I mean coffee. And by coffee I mean Starbucks. Sweet, sweet Starbucks. Oh yeah. I’d sell my soul for the stuff. Perhaps by agreeing to pay boatloads of money for a cup of Joe I already have… Oh well! I don’t question it. Rather I ask, myself: Of course I do. Coffee is delicious. It was love at first sip. Of course I could always be cost-effective and make a pot of the stuff myself. But what am I? A scientist? I can’t make that stuff. Ok so I can. I just can’t make it taste magical, like Starbucks can. Seriously. What do they put in there? Fairy dust? Unicorn tears? Maybe it’s just heaps of sugar. Or maybe it’s science. I vote for science. But really They could put anything in there. more »
