Barnyard Brews: The Best Saison Beers

Originally brewed in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, as a summer treat for farmers who spent hours under the hot sun, saisons often taste spicy, earthy and yeasty, and contain ABV levels that typically run between 4% and 8.5%. Other than a glass of ice water, they’re about as refreshing a drink as you can get on a hot summer day. Here are seven favorites.

Rewind: Malted Madness 2014

There's a time for relaxing with a good craft beer, but this year's Malted Madness tournament was not one of them. It took a great deal of humility, but we shelved our self-proclaimed beer snobbery for the sake of a single question: what's the best mass market beer available? It wasn't easy, but we got an answer, and some other cool articles, besides.

Release the Titans

Redefining the Single Player Experience… With Robots

Titanfall starts with some 1960s stock footage of rockets. There is a voiceover. From what we can understand, a group called the militia is battling a group called the IMC. Then we're in the game, running on walls, and that stuff doesn't matter anymore. This is Titanfall's big bet: that players, so intent on shooting really big weapons at really big robots, won't care that the game lacks any sort of discernible plot or campaign. And it works -- to an extent.

The Quest for Affordable Pappy

Hacking Pappy: An Experiment in Home Whiskey Blending

At night, when bourbon connoisseurs go to bed, many dream of Pappy Van Winkle, a line of three exquisite bourbons (15, 20 and 23 years old, all of them colloquially referred to as "Pappy") distilled and bottled by the Sazerac Company at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Much of Pappy's legend comes from its high demand: when it's released, liquor stores dust off month-long waiting lists to decide who gets a bottle. At the end of last year, Bourbonr Blog made headlines in the liquor community by posting a recipe for "Poor Man's Pappy," a mix of two mid-range W.L. Weller whiskies that they claim, while not being able to emulate Pappy Van Winkle completely, "comes close." But does the recipe hold up? With $50, a postal scale and a mason jar, we decided to find out for ourselves.

We Test 10 Huge Imperial IPAs

Doubling Down on IPAs

Over the past 20 years, the way to make a double IPA (otherwise known as DIPA or “imperial IPA”) hasn't really changed: roughly double the ingredients that would go into a normal IPA and you get a double IPA. As the weather changes, more and more stores begin cellaring their heavy winter stouts and replacing them with these hop- and malt-forward beasts. For those looking to expand their palates, doubles offer the citrus hop and bready malt flavors of regular IPAs, but amplified, and with plenty more complexity to spare. We tasted ten of our favorites.

Guide to Life: Pack a Suit

You have a job interview. Or maybe it’s a wedding. Either way, you need to pack a suit. Unfortunately, they’re not the easiest things to fold — not well, anyways. Any schlub can throw one in a bag, but keeping it wrinkle-free requires a little extra work. Sure, it’s a hassle. So is tying a double windsor knot. But if you want to keep a prospective employer (or the cute redhead at the reception) focused on something other than wrinkles, it’s a hassle that you’re going to have to own. Stay crisp and professional with these simple steps.

And if so, how does it hold up against more traditional counterparts? To find out, we put ten gluten-free beers to a blind taste test.
