We've made it to the home stretch, people. One more day and us Monday through Friday office drones are free for an extremely temporary couple of days. Will we actually make use of that free time and do something productive or meaningful? Absolutely not! These memeswill help you prep for a weekend of doing the bare minimum. You're welcome.
Fridays are tough. The day promises freedom, and yet seems to drag longer than any other day of the week. The "light at the end of the tunnel" which for us, equals a cold beer, hard seltzer, or a glass of wine (or a martini if you're nasty) is all that's getting us through the day. Hopefully these memes will help you til you can head to the bar. Just remember to drink responsibly. After all, you wouldn't want to destroy your whole weekend of freedom, would you?
Now this is a pipeline worth fighting for.
As oil pipelines threaten the drinking water and land of the Native Americans here in the states, pipelines in Belgium are threatening sobriety. The world’s first legal beer pipeline in Bruges, Belgium carries 1,000 gallons, the equivalent of 12,000 bottles, of beer an hour from the brewery to the bottling planet two miles away.
This is not the first beer pipeline. There was at least one illegal one operating during Prohibition, in which a 6,000-foot hose was found under the streets of Yonkers, NY in 1930.
This perfectly legal pipeline, however, starts at Halve Maan beer brewery, one of the country’s oldest. It opened in 1856, and thanks to a crowdfunded campaign, the brewery was launched into the 21st century with a brand-new beer pipeline.
According to Atlas Obscura, “The 500+ donors received a priceless thank you gift: free beer for life. Today, visitors can glimpse a section of the pipeline through a transparent manhole cover cut into the cobblestone street.”
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin is known for a lot of things. He’s a six-time WWE champion, was a gueststar on Nash Bridges several times, and he might be the only person to pull off a Stone Cold Stunner on two members of the potential Trump administration, former WWE exec Linda MacMahon and that reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month, President-elect Donald Trump.
To say he’s had quite a career is an understatement. But one night in Japan, he was off his game.
On his podcast, The Steve Austin Show — Unleashed, Stone Cold sat down with Mark Yeats, a former WWE official, and beer guy for Stone Cold. What does that mean? It was Mark’s responsibility to throw Austin his celebratory cold one.
The podcast was filled with gems, from the beer Stone Cold drank was real to Austin getting a slight buzz in the ring. But the real money is “Stone Cold” talking about the 115 beer he went through in a Japan beer bash.
”Were you in Japan the time we did the beer bash with the Dudleys and Stacy Keibler? .... We went through 115 beers that night [in Japan], and that was the most I ever went through. And a lot of people said ‘hey man, was that real beer?’ And I say yes, it was always real beer… except for the one time. We were in Montreal, I think it was Sunday, something like that. Whatever it was, or maybe it was against the rules of the building, but it was NA beer, non-alcohol. And so all of a sudden those pictures start making the rounds and people are thinking ‘oh they’re throwing this guy non-alcohol beer.’ … that was one time.”
The Texas rattlesnake was the real deal. Check out the full interview over at Podcast One.
my grandpa put this beer in his fridge 32 years ago and said he would open it when the cubs won the world series. today was that day. pic.twitter.com/LPsNMQZCpp— gracejo (@GraceJohnso) November 3, 2016
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.
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.
We can't make this up.
Nineteen-year-old Bud Weisser was cited for trespassing and resisting arrest in Missouri after he was found in a restricted area of the Budweiser brewery Thursday, according to Daily Mail.
Weisser apparently crashed his car in the parking lot and hopped a fence to enter the brewery. Police were called to the scene after he refused to leave the area.
Here's another look at Mr. Weisser.
Seems to be an upstanding young gentleman.
Remember when we told you about Russia running over foreign cheese with steamrollers? Well, patriots are taking that same level of nutritional nationalism to the supermarkets.
One patriot in particular, musician Stas Barestky, joined some Cossacks in a media stunt and entered a supermarket in St. Petersburg to destroy foreign made food.
Barestky knows how to destroy stuff.
The video is a little long, so here is one of the key action scenes.
Barestky's music is hard to locate because we don't read Russian too well, but here's a song put to edits of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, for some reason.
The music and the video that goes along with it might elude us culturally, but if there's one thing we can all agree on loving, it's biting things in half.
