- The bacon emoji is coming
- Here's a great practical and decorative beer scratch off chart so you can keep track of beers you've tried.
- Nobody wants to admit it, but we all have to know it's true. The moral of the story is, watch your beer instake if you're dieting.
Have you ever wondered what beer would taste like if you filtered it through a Brita first? It turns out, it (and everything else) tastes just like water.
Interesting beer links from around the web for the start of 2016:
- PicoBrew, the Keurig/Sodastream for home brewed beer has been getting some attention at CES.
- Researchers have tasted the 125 year old beer found at the bottom of Halifax Harbor. Turns out it tastes like beer.
- MightySquirrel hits the market with protein enhanced beer. Soon enough, we'll have bars replacing the smoothie counter at our gyms.
- And finally, here is an interesting, quick read about how your beer vessel impacts taste.
The most interesting bacon and beer stories of the week, according to me:
- The Atlantic's How to Stop Beer From Foaming: Hint, it involves science and magnets.
- Fast Company's Creative Beer: Again, science. The optimal BAC for creativity is .075%, so an ad agency made a beer and a bottle with a guide to help you get there.
- The Ho-Ho-Honut was invented: A Christmas dinner donut filled with sausage and onion gravy, dusted with turkey salt and a roasted potato crumb finished with smoked maple candied bacon and a cranberry glaze.
- Food and Wine's What It's Like to Drink Sriracha Beer: The summary, "Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout Beer, from its packaging on down, is an inspired and well-executed experiment."

Just last weekend, I mentioned that we should cook something with bacon and/or beer so that I'd have something to post for the website. Thirty Eight games of Starcraft II later, it was never done, and therefore, I'm going on almost two months without posting a recipe. I'm confident this isn't going to be the weekend for it either, since we're going to Palm Springs. So, in the mean time, I leave you with a Lifehacker tip that you can use old, stale, flat beer to polish your wood surfaces. It's probably crazy to think that you might have leftover beer for such an occasion, but file this one away somewhere in the recesses of your brain just in case.Read More…
The article seems credible, but I'm having a hard time believing it's true. The guys that brought us Baconnaise and Bacon Salt are moving into baby formula because the fat content helps developing brains. It's crazy enough to believe, I suppose.Read More…
I recently discovered a company called BevShots, and I am in awe of the beautiful prints they make from beer and other beverages photographed at the microscopic level. The results are stunning. Unfortunately I'm not a homeowner and I don't really have much wall space to hang art on, but they do also sell coasters and shot glasses featuring the same prints. I imagine at some point they'll extend their shot glass line to include beer glasses as well because it just makes sense.

In a nutshell, the process extracts energy from the used grain so that it can be reused within the brewery in the beer making process. As long as I don't do anything stupid after a few beers, this is a step forward towards guilt free drinking.
