19 Fake Craft Beers Inspired By The Simpsons, Ranked

The craft beer industry is facing two significant problems. First off, they’re running out of names for their artisanal ales.

Whiskey Smackdown: Fireball Vs. Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire

How do you know when you’ve really made it in life? It depends on who you are and what racket you’re in. For charming chumps like us, success could mean dental insurance, a bed that doesn’t fold in half, or an honorably discharged student loan. For those of loftier falutions, arrival in the big leagues might be marked… »6/19/15 3:02pm6/19/15 3:02pm

This Crazy-Ass New Beer Proves That India Pale Ale Will Never Die

Are you one of the weirdoes, poseurs, or stout-humpers who claims to be tired of India pale ale? If so, congratulations on being cool and condolences on being screwed, because IPAs are never going away.
