This St. Patrick’s Day, make the perfect Black & Tan with your very own Brolly from Bass Ale. What is it?

From BoingBoing Gadgets, Joel Johnson gives us the run down on this home draft beer dispenser from Heineken.
From the pictures it looks great and serves bar quality drafts. Still at $300, bottles may work just as well for your next party.

One of the many product we had the pleasure to try in Vegas is Stoli’s newest flavor, Blackberi. I don’t think it is available yet, but trust me it will be worth the wait. I tried it over ice with soda, a what a delightful twist to straight vodka. As with many other Stoli flavors, the blackberry flavor does not over power or taste too sweet. It is almost an essence of the fruit.

Tao Night Club in the Venetian Hotel is amazingly decorated with an Asian theme. Think lots of candles and lots of Buddhas, kinda like a Temple. This three-story behemoth of a club was ranked one of the top 100 bars and clubs in the US for 2007. (The photo above is from the balcony. Nice view!)

To help celebrate Valentine’s Day, Maker’s Mark sent along a few love poems to include with a box:… Read more
Pinky is a new vodka from Sweden. Made by master wine tasters, it is a super premium vodka distilled 5 times. Pinky is then blended with 12 botanicals (most notably wild strawberries, rose petals and violets). Each of these botanicals is distilled separately prior to being blended with the vodka. This gives Pinky its namesake hue and vibrant flavor. Unlike other flavored vodkas, the Pinky process yields a ton of flavor but no excess sweetness.… Read more
OK, so the name suggests that this should be the last stop. However, being the farthest away from home, we made it our first. I also chose the Final Final because it is one of my favorite sports bars in the San Francisco. It has tons of good quality flat screens, pool tables, some decent bar food and good strong drinks! It is also complete with all of the essential sports bar paraphernalia, … Read more
