Real world problem… You can’t make it to Oktoberfest this year, and all you have in the fridge is a thirty-pack of PBR cans.

Thanks to Das Can-in-Stein, you can now drink as if you’re rubbing elbows with genuine Bavarians. Simply take your 12-oz. beer can of choice and slip it into the pseudo-pewter tankard. Prost!

A 99-Pack of Beer Exists

99-pack-peacemaker

Twelve-packs of beer are now for little nancies, as Austin Beerworks has just unleashed what appears to be the world’s first 99-Pack.

The monstrous package has been designed to hold Peacemaker Anytime Ale, with the idea that it’s “always a good time for a Peacemaker”… assuming that you have a few friends and a car big enough to help carry the 82 lb. seven-foot-long case home.

Yes, this is very real, and available for $99. However, the 99-pack is available in limited numbers for those who follow Austin Beerworks on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. You must also live in an area where it’s available for delivery. Find out if you can get a whole mess o’ beer here.

The Hobbit Beers For Precious Drinking

hobbit-beer

If you’re looking for one beer to rule them all, you now have your choice of three. BevLink and Fish Brewing have entered a fellowship to bring us a trilogy of beers inspired by The Hobbit movies.

Gollum Precious Pils starts the series off with a strong Imperial Pils, that will certainly go over well at the Shire. Smaug Stout is in the middle with a Russian Imperial Stout. Bolg Belgian Tripel, inspired by the white orc chieftain, concludes the series.

The Hobbit series will start shipping this week, beginning “in the West,” and should make its way throughout the land shortly.

Beck’s Beer Boom Box Packaging

When New Zealand-based Think Packaging was asked to create a music-inspired box to hold a series of Beck’s Beer bottles, the result was a vintage boom box.

Housed in the retro music player are six bottles of beer — each label inspired by a particular music genre. So, grab a box, throw it over your shoulder, and head to your next 80s party. Your neon-clad friends will thank you.

Synex, A Single-Serve Home System For Dispensing Craft Beer

Synek1

The enormous growth of the American craft beer industry is nothing short of extraordinary. But, as we all know, beer drinkers and Americans are all about convenience. Coffee drinkers have their lives made easier by Keurig, and even tortilla-maker’s get some love. Now, it’s the beer lover’s turn.

Synex is a system designed for the home, that will dispense the beer of your choice at the pull of a tap. No longer will we have to drive all the way to the liquor store and buy a whole six-pack or 750ml, only to see its quality diminish if it sits around too long.

The Synex, via vacuum-sealed cartridges, deliver the fresh beer of your choice, one beer at a time. The package-o-beer will keep a gallon of beer fresh for up to 30 days — significantly longer than any bottling, including that enormous growler taking up space in the fridge. The Synex is currently in Kickstarter phase.
