Here’s a commercial for Bavaria Radler beer where it shows the likes of Kurt Cobain, Tupac Shakur, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis chilling on a tropical island drinking some cold brewskies.

I’m sure Mr. Cobain—who famously feared being a sell-out—would have just loved this concept. Doubtful that it’ll cause Yoko Ono to yuck it up much either. I smell a lawsuit!

TROOPER


 
There’s a novelty beer for everything! I’m still waiting for The Edgar Winter Group’s Frankenstein’s Pale Ale. You know it’s coming any day now.

TROOPER is a Premium British Beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.

The subtly lemony Iron Maiden ale will be available in the USA sometime late this Summer.

Below, a video which explains everything you need to know about TROOPER

Bastards Lager: Motörhead launches new beer!


 
Just in time for Summer BBQs, Motörhead unveils their latest beverage, Bastards Lager.

As Cherrybombed puts it, “I was hoping for a bit more than a 4.7% punch from a lager with the words “Motörhead,” and “Bastards” on it.”

Anyway, it looks like it’s only available in Sweden, but you can order it online from System Bolaget.

Bruce Springsteen on a beer run in Philly

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band hit Philadelphia two nights ago and during a performance of “Raise Your Hand” The Boss jumped into the audience and had a tall cold one with his fans.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure I’d swallow a frosty beverage handed to me by a total stranger. And then again, now that I think about it, there was a time in my life that I drank, licked, sucked and snorted just about everything shoved in front of my face. Yeah, rock and roll makes you immortal…or makes you think you’re immortal…same thing.

But back to the video. This Springsteen clip is Rick Santorum’s worst nightmare. The devil’s music on his front porch and a crowd of 20,000 rock fiends drinking Rolling Rock and chanting “Bahhhhhhhhs! “Bahhhhhhhhs! “Bahhhhhhhhs!

Springsteen is pushing hard on this tour to subvert the messages of the right wing and derail the Republican death train. The Jersey boy has picked up Woody Guthrie’s guitar, the one that says “this machine kills fascists,” and is running with it. And no matter what cynical bastards say about Springsteen being a member of the 1%, his new record and tour is called “Wrecking Ball” for good reason - words won’t do it alone, we need to take action…but first we need to come together and create a sense of community. And historically speaking there’s been no better galvanizing artistic force for the good of humankind than rock and roll and no bigger trigger to change society and consciousness than a big fat beat you can dance to.

Look at the faces in this video. These folks vote. And trust me, they ain’t voting for the forces of darkness. You can’t love life and be an advocate for death. The “Wrecking Ball Tour” is the spiritual counterpoint to the shit coming off Santorum and Romney. I would venture to say that Springsteen could wipe their asses on the electoral floor if he ran against them for President. But the Boss ain’t ready to be THE Boss yet. He’s too busy making people feel good. But he’d make a great Vice President. Obama/Boss-mania in 2012. Being Vice President would still give Springsteen plenty of time to tour. It can be done. I’ve heard rumors that Biden was night-owling in a Gary Puckett & The Union Gap tribute band for the past three years.

Beer Battleship!

Battleship

Bomb your opponent and your brain back to the stone age at the same time! It’s… beer battleship!

Just before Christmas we had a “hedgehog in the fog” themed party (just because we had a smoke machine). Some of fellow sharenators were here too - Ensx, Darius and BongoMan. Since BongoMan is studying architecture, he had some sheets of paperboard. So we figured we can use it to make a battleship table.

How to always win at battleship
1. Make a big battleship table. Use beer bottles/cans/etc as your ships. (Bonus: if you have a smoke machine, use it to create a feeling of a real battle!)
2. The rules of the game are simple - if you hit your opponent’s ship (beer), he has to drink it.
3. ???
4. No matter if you win or lose, you always win.

It looks like we can add a bottle of surviving beer to the 60 human survivors of the Hindenburg disaster.  And, for the right price, it can be yours, too, when it goes up for auction this Saturday:

The bottle was found by a fire-fighter cleaning up the American airfield where the German airship exploded in 1937.  The bottle will be the most expensive ever bought if it meets its estimated price of ?Ǭ
