Everyone has it—that one bottle of alcohol sitting in the back of the freezer or tucked away in a cabinet somewhere, so old you can’t even remember when you bought it. It sits largely unused, aside from the rare occasion you find yourself pulling it out from its hiding place and wondering, Can this really […]
Known as one of the finest bourbons in the world, Pappy Van Winkle is a rare find these days. It’s unknown how many cases are available each year, and prices have risen to insane amounts (we’re talking $1,500 a bottle). So if you happen to get your hands on one, or even a taste, it’s […]

When Budweiser announced it wanted to be the first beer on Mars back in March at South by Southwest, we’ll admit we were skeptical.
