Wait -- you were just going to carve Potato Jesus into your pumpkin and call it good? Think again!
The United States' most top secret beer just gained declassified status. The White House has released the recipes for its home-brewed -- and government approved -- Honey Ale and Honey Porter, for those who really want to drink like the president.
While people probably wouldn't mind a few tax dollars being spent on the Commander in Chief's home concoctions, Barack Obama funds this venture out of his own pocket.
Japanese beer maker Kirin has created a solution to the ever-frustrating warm beer. The company's new frozen foam topping, Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft, acts as an insulating lid and keeps the drink cold for 30 minutes. The foam is made by cooling the beer to 23 degrees Fahrenheit, while a machine continuously blows air into the mixture. The frothy, creamy result doesn't water down the beer when it finally melts, and the beverage also is creamier (immaterial, really, as it shouldn't take anyone 30 minutes to drink a beer).
Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft is currently available in Tokyo and will launch throughout Japan in May.
