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.

Roosh V, creepy 'pick-up artist' and author of far too many books with the word 'Bang' in the title, did not meet many fans of his work over the weekend in Montreal.

He traveled to the Canadian city to hold a seminar on how guys can best try and trick girls to sleep with them. Only, the venue shut it down when they learned what the seminar entailed.

Then, it says in the MtlBlog story:

Here's where it gets good. Roosh decided to go out to a bar after his event, and that's when he had a beer pitched in his face. Then another and then yet another. The wonderful people at the bar then chased him out, yelling at him to "get the f*ck out of Montreal" but that's not where things ended. The patrons followed Roosh all the way back to where he was staying just to make sure he knew he wasn't wanted here.



After that, he had little hope of peace as Mtblog states that one of the girls who threw a drink on him posted this (although the website doesn't say where it was posted):

Lululemon announces a beer to go with all your yoga.

You know you get thirsty from all that yoga you do, so why not rehydrate with a nice frosty beer?

That's what the über yoga clothing store Lululemon wants you to do anyway.

According to the apparel giant's Instagram account, the beer will come to the Seawheeze Half Marathon, which is apparently something that happens in Vancouver.

They're calling it the 'Curiosity Lager' and, according to the New York Daily News want it to be seen as a craft beer.

Canadian yoga retailer Lululemon has teamed up with Vancouver's Stanley Park Brewing to launch a limited-edition craft beer called Curiosity Lager, made with chinook and lemon drop hops for a "crisp, cold beer."

The limited edition beer — only 88,000 cans will be produced — will be served at the 2015 SeaWheeze Sunset Festival and Half Marathon in August in Vancouver and line liquor store shelves across Canada later this month.



Drunk yoga is something most of us are familiar with.



We may refer to it as something different.



But Lululemon probably just wants to standardize the whole thing.

This whole thing seems just like something to get dudes more interested in yoga, like when they unveiled their "Anti Ball-Crushing" Pants, which "gives you and the family jewels room to breathe."

Luckily for you, there's cheap, probably better, beer all around us!

Bud Light was forced to apologize – yet again – for their “Up for Whatever” marketing campaign this week, after their beer bottle slogans caused a bit of an uproar online.

The above image was posted to Imgur/Reddit on Monday, showing a label that said: “The perfect beer for removing ‘No’ from your vocabulary for the night.”

While the company supposedly had good intentions here, people were quick to notice how this could very easily be misinterpreted.

“Sounds a lil rapey,” writes one commenter on Imgur.

Another pointed out the perils of drunk driving.

“Are you ok to drive?”
“N…nnnn…NNNNN! Aww f*ck it yeah I’m good”

The bottle campaign launched last December, with more than 47 different messages on the labels “intended to inspire spontaneous fun.”

The spontaneous fun has now taken the form of Tweets and comments on Reddit poking fun at the poorly thought out campaign.

Back in March, Anheuser-Busch had to apologize for encouraging people to pinch strangers on St. Patrick’s Day, and now they’ve responded with a similar statement about they “missed the mark.”

The Bud Light Up for Whatever campaign, now in its second year, has inspired millions of consumers to engage with our brand in a positive and light-hearted way. In this spirit, we created more than 140 different scroll messages intended to encourage spontaneous fun. It’s clear that this message missed the mark, and we regret it. We would never condone disrespectful or irresponsible behavior.

Of course, the damage had already been done, and the Internet let them know how they feel about it.

Here is a taste of some of the mockery on Twitter:

Simply say "I'm parched," and this cattle dog will open the fridge, grab you a beer and even shut the door again before delivery.

Good boy Bandit, now fetch me some chips.

If you like coffee and beer, maybe this new Starbucks drink is worth a shot! Starbucks is testing what they've named the Dark Barrel Latte, a drink made with espresso and a chocolaty stout flavor and topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel drizzle. While there's no alcohol actually in the drink, many are insisting that it tastes a lot like beer.

Starbucks already sells beer and wine at some of their stores in the evening, and this fun new blend might be a good way to bridge the gap between the coffee lovers and the beer & wine enthusiasts. Many of the company's customers love trying new things and unique flavor pairings, so for now they're testing this drink to see if it has the potential to become more widely available.

This year alone, 29,500 individually designed beer labels have been submitted for approval to the Trade Department's Tax and Trade Bureau. And every single one of those label designs was approved or denied by a single man: Kent "Battle" Martin, a man who is the bane of the beer industry for his power to reject labels for the flimsiest of reasons.


Here are a few of the reasons:

Battle has rejected a beer label for the King of Hearts, which had a playing card image on it, because the heart implied that the beer would have a health benefit.

He rejected a beer label featuring a painting called The Conversion of Paula By Saint Jerome because its name, St. Paula's Liquid Wisdom, contained a medical claim--that the beer would grant wisdom.

He rejected a beer called Pickled Santa because Santa's eyes were too "googly" on the label, and labels cannot advertise the physical effects of alcohol. (A less googly-eyed Santa was later approved.)

He rejected a beer called Bad Elf because it featured an "Elf Warning," suggesting that elves not operate toy-making machinery while drinking the ale. The label was not approved on the grounds that the warning was confusing to consumers.

Numbeo, a crowd-sourced database of the price of goods around the world, maintains a comprehensive list of the average price of a domestic draft beer in different countries. And the International Labor Organization (ILO) maintains a vast library of minimum monthly wage data. So we combined the two—into a beer indicator, of sorts.

Another unordinary option has been added to the list of adult beverage-inspired Jelly Belly jelly beans that is sure to inspire curiosity. The new beer-flavored jelly bean is intended to resemble a Hefeweizen-inspired ale. Though this flavor does not contain any alcohol, it is only marketed to adults.

Now they just need to come up with a pretzel-flavored bean to compliment this new flavor...perhaps a lemon bean will do as well.
