Beer, cigarettes, and a barrel of crude oil

IMG00004-20090603-1332Not sure if this is what the founders of the City of Long Beach had in mind when the started building oil derricks like they were going out of style.

Damnson, Daniel Plainview needs to chill the fuck out. Have a drink, not a milkshake, perhaps a tasty bevy from the local Oil Patch Liquor store.

Now all those oil derricks have successfully been converted to liquor stores like the one above and the City of Long Beach continues to have a thriving economy.  We all win.

The Return of the Tasty Bevy

Fitz’s Bottling Company in St. Louis makes some of the best Root Beer and Cream Soda in the nation. What’s great about these guys is that they produce much more than the classic sodas, Strawberry Pop being one of these non-traditional flavors.

This stuff is right on par with their classics. If you could liquify a strawberry starburst, carbonate it, and throw it in a bottle, you’d have Fitz’s Strawberry Pop. If that doesn’t sound appetizing to you, then you aren’t patriotic. Stop letting the terrorists win. Thanks.

Scottish Gangsters Drink This

Sexual bottles are always limited edition.

For its 100th birthday, Johnnie Walker Black Label is coming at us in this beautiful design for only £100. Only 100 bottles are available, individually numbered of course, and they are not available Stateside.

If you can track one down and are willing to drop $200 on a bottle whose contents normally would cost you $30, then go for it, I won’t stop you.

Tasty Bevvies: The Undisputed Cola Champion

Posted in Tasty Bevvies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2009 by Production Team

Delicious. Textured. Spicy. Strong & Natural.

Yes, Natural.

Just to silence the skeptics, take a look at the ingredients in this new King of Colas:

  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Natural caramel flavor
  • Natural flavors from plant extracts (0.37%): galangal, vanilla, mustard seed, lime, kola nut, cocoa, liquorice, cinnamon, lemon, ginger, coca leaf, orange, corn mint, pine, cardamom, mace, clove, and lemon juice concentrate
  • Caffeine from coffee beans.
  • If you’ve ever had a Coca-Cola in Europe or Mexico, you have tasted the stark difference between Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. The taste of Red Bull Cola is similar, but with a deeper spice than Coke, presumably because of all the plant extracts (mace! yummmm….). It’s got the same carbonation sting you’ve come to love from all the name-brand sodas, making for a thoroughly enjoyable Colaxation experience.

    The one stinkin’ gripe is the name. Why, oh why, Red Bull, did you have to associate an all-natural cola brand with your chemical wasteland energy drink? It would have done dreams for this beverage to call it something else. Instead this fantastic product is probably going to be off shelves before anyone realized it was on them.

    My advice to you is to try one, and spread the word like it’s swine flu.

    Orgy Preparedness in a Bottle

    Posted in Tasty Bevvies with tags , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2009 by Enrique Enfuego

    img00156-20090316-0327Bacchus-D, this energy drink rolls deep. Balls deep actually.

    Despite being a product of South Korea, this erection in a bottle is named after the infamous Greek and Roman orgies of centuries past.

    I had myself one of these on Friday night and was ready for some hardcore couch-sitting.

    (Side Note: This product contains royal jelly, which has a reported side effect of inducing asthma. I can attest to this claim.)

    I think we all know what the D stands for.

    The Roots Come Alive

    I was graciously included in a blind root beer tasting this past weekend, and I thought it would nice to share some of the results with you.

    The above bottles took the top three spots in the tasting.  The two on the outside were more of the creamy fare and tied for second.

    In the middle, Fitz’s, took the top prize. It was just the classic, well-balanced root beer taste. Highly recommended.

    There will be more tasting results coming your way in the near future, so look out.

    Devout Birchgoer

    Recently I have been on quite the Root Beer kick. Not to say that it has replaced my affinity for Ginger Ales and Beers, but I have been opened up to a whole new world of soda pop.

    As I delved deeper into this world, I discovered Root Beer’s closest family members: Sarsaparilla and Birch Beer. If you like them sweet and sharp, Birch Beer is for you…

    From the always solid bottling company of Boylan’s… the Creamy Red Birch Beer. With a hint of vanilla, this stuff is sweet, smooth, complex, and of course, creamy. It is described as “entry level” so I can only imagine what the Original Birch Beer tastes like. Soon enough.
