Caffiend: Bawls G33K B33R
Anybody who ever attended a LAN party has seen Bawls, the Guarana-based drink of choice for geeks. This is a reputation Bawls clearly embraces, as they named one of their concoctions "G33K B33R."
G33K B33R is a high-octane root beer that tastes great, like old time Sarsparilla. And the energy rush is unbelievable, packing 100 mg of caffeine from the Guarana plant. But don't call it an "energy drink" -- unlike most energy drinks, Bawls G33K B33R contains no B vitamins. It's not designed to give people energy so much as just wire them awake for whatever purpose (usually video game marathons). This drink goes straight to the heart and head, slightly increasing the pulse and peeling the eyes open like a bottle of Vick's VapoRub under the eye. It's an intense feeling that sticks with you for at least two hours. It's perfect for getting your game on, cleaning your house, and maybe even kicking crack.
