Now you can drink your beer and eat it too. In candy form. Jelly bean candy to be specific. Jelly Belly, makers of — sometimes tasty, sometimes gross — flavored jelly beans has unveiled their take on the classic beverage.
Draft Beer Jelly Bellys are new for 2014 and are sure to be a hit. Already out of stock, a new batch is brewing. The company says they will be available on February 10th. Till then, I guess the real stuff will have to do.

Drinking beer isn’t the most active of endeavors. This of course, is fine; relaxing with a beer after a long day’s work is a tradition that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But, that doesn’t mean it has to be relaxin’. In fact, some might prefer sippin’ and rippin’ at the same time.
Yes, sippin’ and rippin’, two activities that seemingly don’t belong together. Oh, how wrong we all were. The Mug Muscles Beer Mug with Hand Grip Exerciser Handle brings together beer drinking and exercise — all without leaving the couch. Now if they could just perfect that La-Z-Boy recliner with built-in treadmill.

Bring the beer can chicken inside. Except forget the beer can. Well, forget to put the beer can inside the chicken that is, because this roasting rack is ready to stand up to the task without any help.
Suitable for indoor use or out on the grill, the Cuisipro Stainless Steel Dual Roasting Rack is a versatile little kitchen accessory that doesn’t lie down on the job. Unless you want it to; then you use it in the horizontal position just like a traditional roasting rack. But when it’s time to turn things on end, the gadget transforms to a vertical roaster ready for all your indoor beer can chicken sans beer can needs. Considering that the better beers come in glass bottles, this is probably a good thing. (Basting with beer is still okay.)

Football is now on three nights a week. These football shaped beer glasses come in a 4-pack. Coincidence? Highly doubtful. Be it Sunday, Monday or Thursday night, NFL football will be on the tube. This Libbey 23-Ounce Football Tumbler 4-Piece Beer Glass Set is the perfect accompaniment for the week.
And lest you think that BTKS is suffering from inability to count, there being four football glasses in this set and three nights of NFL football, please remember that the college kids play on Saturday. They might not be able to
count bucketfuls of money that they deserve for being the entertainers that they are INTERCEPTED BY THE NCAAF…
Four nights of football, four football shaped beer drinking glasses. Perfect like the ’72 Dolphins. However you add it up.

Twinkies are coming back. After falling apart in bankruptcy, Hostess Brands Inc. has emerged as a new company, Hostess Brands LLC. Buried in this news is an interesting tidbit.
From the WSJ:
But Mr. Metropoulos and his son, Daren, the co-CEO of Pabst Brewing Co. who is also heading up the reborn Hostess’s marketing strategy, expressed confidence they would be able to find skilled, nonunion workers near the four plants, which are in areas with high unemployment.
That’s right, Beer Twinkies! Finally, we can stop trying to make our own.

Nobody like a flat beer, right? Well, shake things up with the Takara Tomy Sonic Hour. Pour a little water into the base to get it going, set your non-foamed beer on top and watch the action bubble forth. And to distract those that think an exaggerated head on a pint of beer is not a desirable thing, the beer gadget also features some groovy flashing lights to help set the mood.
For further proof that the future of beer drinking is full of cold air, the beer foam maker is part of the Beer Hour Series which also includes the Jokki Hour Sparkling Beer Mug and the Handy Beer Server, both of which serve similar purposes. Cheers!
