It's been a big night for Cubs fans, who ended a 108-year losing streak to win the World Series against the Cleveland Indians. They're probably thirsty. Thirsty for old beer, that is. 

Ending a streak of his own, this grandfather finally opened a beer that he put in the fridge 32 years ago with a mental note "slam this bad boy when the Cubs win the the World Series." Let's just say, nothing makes a man thristier than their team winning the Fall Classic — thirstier for old beer, that is.

The chickens came home to roost — or the Cubs came home to roost or something —  last night, and he popped the top on this three-decade old Coors Banquet. Complete with pull-style tab can, the beer in question does not even fizz when he pours it into his proud Cubs mug. Reports say that the beer "smells like hell" and probably shouldn't be drunk. 

The family heard those reports, too. It smelled so bad that they wouldn't even let him drink it. After all, why would anyone want to celebrate a World Series win — more than a century in the making — in the emergency room because their grandfather was so thirsty for old beer. 

Be a winner, like the Cubs: Don't drink 30-year-old beer.

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.

That's right, Budweiser is rebranding itself as "America" because.... elections? According to FastCoDesign, this new name will only last until the presidential elections are over in November. 


In the meantime, maybe the makers of Budweiser can work on making "America" great again (if it ever was).

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. 

Seriously.

Really though, how about a round of applause for Simon Lambert & Sons pub in Wexford for this recent innovation.

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.
