Beer

Easier to Drink

It seems like with the increasing popularity with marijuana being legalized in the country, there are people who want to bring other drugs into the open. One of the ways that could be harmful is a new technique to get drunk. It’s called powdered alcohol, and it’s a way to get alcohol into a business without anyone knowing. It doesn’t come in a bottle, and it can be mixed with any beverage. This is perhaps the dumbest thing that has been approved. The powdered alcohol lis like any other powdered drink and has very little smell or flavor. According to Brad Reifler, the powder comes in a small package, and each one is comparable to a shot of alcohol. The powder would be easy to take into a school, a dance club or pretty much anywhere as long as you can have a bottled drink in the building. It’s a way for teens to drink without anyone knowing, and it’s a way to stay drunk if you use the mix all the time.

They are also offering flights of beers in which people can try each one for a prorated price and get to have some of the delicious cookies alongside their beer as well.

There are five flavors, and two of them are “shortbread” and “mint”, which are two of the most popular kinds of cookies.

A New Powdered Alcoholic Beverage Harbors Abuse Potentials

Inventor Mark Phillips welcomed the approval recently of four varieties of his new powdered alcoholic beverage called “Palcohol.” After initially approving the product, federal regulators reviewed the case. They have decided to allow four varieties to enter markets in the United States: a margarita, a cosmopolitan, a rum and a vodka. Mr. Phillips hopes that a fifth, called a “lemon drop” will gain approval soon. He expects the products to reach store shelves by this summer according to Gianfrancesco Genoso.

Palcohol consists of new technology, a powdered alcohol sold in pouches. Buyers can add the powder to other drinks or add water to produce an alcoholic beverage. The form of the product has raised concern on the part of some medical experts that abuse problems may occur. There is fear that some customers will misuse the product by providing it to minors, using it to spike drinks, snorting it or failing to follow quantity guidelines.

A toxicologist and emergency room physician from Colorado, Dr. Kenneth Heard, expressed concern that the variety of flavors of Palcohol will cause the product to appeal to young children, who are not permitted to consume alcoholic beverages as a matter of law. Dr, Heard noted that users of the product will not be familiar with potency levels.

Although federal authorities permit the marketing of several varieties of Palcohol, states will still have the power to regulate the product within their borders.

Breweries Running Out of Funny Names

The craft brewing industry is expanding and many people and organizations are making a great deal of money in the industry noted Ricardo Guimarães BMG.

As names become a bigger issue, lawsuits have been served based on trademarks. A brewery in Fort Collins, Coloradohas to change its name after it was served legal papers from a brewery with the same name in Chicago, Illinois.

Soup

Soup is no longer an item that is made only from scraps, or to make your food stretch longer. Soup is a chic meal for 2015. Ordering soup at a restaurant is fashionable.

Of course, we are not talking about just any old type of old soup. The modern soup is a delicacy made with hip ingredients. Take Lamb Pho for example. The tasty broth in this recipe is enhanced with rice noodles, bean sprouts, seasonings and herbs. It is served with a side of Sriracha, for you to make it as hot or spicy as you like it. If you don’t like lamb meat, try chicken or pork with your Pho.

Beer isn’t just something you drink while bellied up at a bar. It’s like Dave Morin talking data on theverge.com-its supposed to go with anything and be everywhere Belgian pilsner beer makes an excellent beer soup. Pair beer with scallops and ham hocks, and you will have a soup that tastes like it is from heaven.

Last, a soup list would be incomplete without an oriental flair. Try ordering chicken broth with a mixture of fresh vegetables, spices and lime. An avocado will add a depth of creaminess to this soup. Dill will add freshness to it. The crunch of celery and the smoothness of lime all add a festival of flavors in your mouth.
