From Argentina comes the latest innovation in beer vending, Rugbeer. You have to tackle it, hard, to get the beer. But don’t worry, American consumers, thanks to our overlawyered, liability-mad culture, you’ll never have your manhood challenged by a novelty beer-vending machine.

On the first day of Christmas….A gift suggestion

My true love gave to me …… a bee-eee-eee-eeee-eeeer!  Or maybe a pouring spoon to make black and tans.  Now, I do not receive anything for this post, have never gotten a free spoon, but I think this a great item, very cool, and from a small operation trying to make it.  So, buy one, […]
