A Florida craft beer company called Saltwater Brewery teamed up with engineers and scientists to create an alternative for plastic to hold their beer cans together. It works just like those plastic rings that hold a six pack together but it's made from the by products of beer making.
A brewery worker at BrewDog decided to print a very unique date as the expiration date on their Punk IPA beers. Unfortunately, that date was a little too ambiguous to legally sell in the UK leading to the recall of around 200,000 beers. Don't worry though, the guy who did it was named employee of the month.
This sh*t blows homebrew, kombucha, whatever out the water. Apparently we live in a world where our bodies possess the capability to brew booze.
An upstate New York woman blew a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit, but it's chill because she lives with an auto-brewery condition. Also known as gut-fermentation syndrome this rare medical condition occurs when gastrointestinal yeast converts common food carbs into ethanol.
The woman of our unbelievable story met her husband for lunch, where she consumed four drinks between the hours of noon and 6pm. After leaving the restaurant, her car experienced a flat tire, which she continued to drive on until a concerned driver phoned the police. It was then that an officer discovered her blood alcohol level was near 0.40. Because a 0.4 is an extreme and immediate threat to one's life, officers immediately took the woman to the hospital where she discovered, for the first time, that she suffers from gut-fermentation syndrome.
We're pretty sure this guy shows all indications of auto-brewery condition.
81 year old Elvira Montes didn't just complete the annual Flotrack Beer Mile, she dominated it. The grandmother of three completed her beer mile, which requires runners to chug a 12 oz beer every quarter mile, in 20 minutes and 23 seconds, beating her 47 year old daughter by 50 seconds.
Montes was happy to finish, but wants to up her chug speed in order to try to beat her time next year: "I should have been a little faster. I tried to drink the first one really fast but I couldn’t. The second one went down really smooth; the third, even better. The fourth was alright."
But the coolest thing about Montes? She doesn't even like beer. This badass grandma prefers scotch. Cheers to you Elvira Montes, and congrats on a great finish time. I know I couldn't beat it.
