    A new Mexican beer has a label depicting a gun-toting, gloomy, mariachi President Donald Trump with a swastika belt buckle. The “Amigous Cerveza” beer has the word “amigo” misspelled to allegedly make fun of a mispronunciation of the word by Americans, reported Reuters. The back label of the brew says the Republican president should be “in a mad house, not the White House.” The chief executive of brewery, Casa Cervecera Cru Cru, Luis Enrique de la Reguera, was reported to be surprised with the success of the product. The original production was gone within a week. “We knew that a...

For the study, researchers analyzed data on weekly alcohol intake in 550 healthy British men and women over a period of 30 years. The participants had an average age of 43 at the start of...

    Over on this thread discussing what has become of Fox News ratings the conversation slipped into the famous New Coke fiasco, and then onto discussion of what happened to Schiltz beer. This seemed like far too important a topic not to have it's own thread. Especially given the onset of summer. So lets have your opinions, good or bad, on the many regional American macro-brews of days past, both the survivors and the many more dead soldiers. Pictures are greatly appreciated!

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Got a few aches and pains? Before you head to the medicine cabinet and reach for those over-the-counter painkillers, consider drinking a few beers. A new study, led by Dr. Trevor Thompson from the University of Greenwich, and published in The Journal of Pain, suggests that throwing back a few cold ones actually relieves your pain better than Tylenol. The study, reported by Lifehacker, found that raising your blood alcohol content to the legal limit of .08%, or about three or four beers deep, elevates your pain threshold significantly. The research involved 18 studies and more than...

    Many of us are all too familiar with the "beer goggles" effect: friends and strangers alike become more attractive after a drink or two. Undoubtedly, drinking alcohol lowers our inhibitions and makes us more open to experimentation with the same sex. In a new study, published in The Journal of Social Psychology, straight men were found to be more physically attracted to other men after a few drinks. "Most notably, alcohol intake was related to increased sexual willingness of men with a same-sex partner, suggesting a potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men," wrote the authors in...

For awhile it looked like they would have to replace their 12 year old label because the Michigan Liquor Control Commission  suddenly realized that it violated one of their zillion administrative rules that states "an advertisement or label affixed to a container, covering, carton, or case of containers of alcoholic liquor shall not depict or make reference in any manner to minors."The Commission apparently relented after Founders apologized for...

    A crew of five astronomers from Belgium have discovered an exceptional planetary system and surprisingly it has got the name of their favorite beer. The planetary system has been christened TRAPPIST-1 by the astronomers after The Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope or TRAPPIST. It is an arrangement of seven planets just 40 light-years away, surrounding a dwarf star. The sizes of the planets are almost similar to that of the Earth. Three of the seven planets are in the liveable area of the star to ensure that they can reinforce liquid water in the external zone and support life....

The ancient Chinese made beer mainly with cereal grains, including millet and barley, as well as with Job's tears, a type of grass in Asia, according to the research. Traces of yam and lily root parts also appeared in...

    Budweiser has chosen the charged political issue of immigration as the subject of its Super Bowl LI commercial. The 60-second spot explains the origin story of the beer company’s immigrant co-founder, Adolphus Busch. The ad, titled “Born the Hard Way,” begins with a young, German-born Busch being told, “You’re not wanted here! Go back home!” The big budget production eventually sees Busch land on the shores of St. Louis where he built his mega-brewery.
