Could a diet of nothing but water actually be healthy?

From the Archives: Although they're monstrously strong and typically expensive, Russian Imperial Stouts push the flavor intensity spectrum, offering a look at the sultry, heady, muscly side of beer. For those willing to experiment, they offer a variety of smells, flavors and textures found in few other styles of beer.
Some chili peppers are more sweet than spicy, better suited to date night than a chest-beating contest with the boys. To learn more about the tamer varieties, we took a walk to the Chelsea Fruit Market. These are ones that interest us and our admittedly fragile tastebuds.
We sit down with Eric Wallace of Left Hand Brewing and Brett Joyce of Rogue Ales to talk about brewing technology, stout glasses and Miley Cyrus.
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.
From the Archives: Consoles don't provide much in the way of portability (anyone else ever own this masterpiece of engineering?), and grown men carrying Gameboys often attract the wrong kind of attention, but mobile games offer interactive experiences on the devices that most of us carry every day. They allow us a bit of serenity when we need it most -- in the airport, on the subway, at a questionable mid-life Bris. Here, we've provided a list of 50 of the best games made for iOS. Play at the risk of your relationship.

It's almost summer, which means that you'll finally have some time to finish the dog-eared copy of Infinite Jest that you started (with best intentions, we're sure) four years ago. Though if you wanted to read one of these instead, no one blames you.
First impressions go a long way in this world, and Jeff Carvalho knows it. The 39-year-old cofounder of the men's style and lifestyle site Selectism presents himself like a real-life version of Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark: intelligent, well-dressed, confident. People listen when he talks. Or maybe they listen because he tells great stories. Or because he's the kind of guy that can go out for a night of karaoke and wind up sitting in Big Boi's living room.
This week in culture: new Freddie Mercury vocals, a secret Freemason's lodge, the world's worst waiter and much more.

'Tis the season for lazy Saturdays, day hikes and easy drinking saisons, session IPAs and pale ales. Put some fire to that charcoal and crack open a cold one -- one of these six would be fine.

NASA's newest spacesuit, the Z-2, departs from past designs and even used crowd sourcing (for a few minor bits). We break down its features.

Back in 2011, when Lytro introduced the Light Field, critics gasped in amazement at the camera's ability to refocus pictures after the shutter snap... and in horror at the angular, boxy design. Lytro updated and repackaged their technology as the Illum, which represents their first real foray into the consumer market.
1800 Milenio represents a departure from the traditional tequila aging process: instead of white oak, 1800 lets the Milenio spend five years in French oak Cognac barrels. Is it a victorious marriage? Si. Or is it oui?

Thanks to contemporary authors like George Saunders and Jennifer Egan, short stories have recently been getting the attention they deserve. Here are five more authors who honor the form.
We visited the New York Antiquarian Book Fair with a single question: in an age of $1.99 Kindle Singles, why would a book cost thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of dollars?
Since 2010, several iOS games have tried to match Infinity Blade's incredible combination of artistry and narrative, our favorites being The Room and Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP. On April 3rd, 2014, a new challenger stepped into the arena: Monument Valley, an M.C. Escher-inspired puzzle game made by indie developers ustwogames.
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.

In our own beer cellar, we've got a couple bottles of Brooklyn Black Ops, a Firestone Walker Parabola and a Perennial Abraxus -- all great beers, but we could use a few additions. For some new suggestions, as well as some tips on beer aging, we contacted our friends at The Cannibal NYC, who run extensive cellaring collections, both personally and professionally.
While running is by nature a sport with minimal gear requirements, having a combination of the right soft goods plus some accoutrements for comfort can make the whole experience more enjoyable. Pick from this Kit and you’ll be furnished with everything you need to succeed -- minus grit and determination. That’s on you.
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.
From the Archives: GTA V heralds a new era of gaming, one in which top studios will attract gamers by focusing on their interactions with the digital landscape -- i.e., by creating more immersive worlds.
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.
