Move over BrewDog, you have some competition. Last Friday, we introduced you to what we think is either the greatest beer in the world or the best publicity stunt of 2010. Either way Brew Dog's "End of History" was the strongest beer in the world at 55% ABV. That was last week. This week Dutch Brewery 't Koelschip has released "Start the Future". At 60% ABV, it is the new reining champ in the battle for the highest alcohol content. The price tag on the new champ is a mere $45, making it a tad more attainable then its predecessor.
Did Someone Say Cheesecake?
It's National Cheesecake Day. (Who comes up with these?) Baking a cheesecake can be a bit of a challenge. You need special pans and they are always cracking and they just never come out like the picture. That's why we are taking the easy route with a no-bake recipe. Fail proof Oreo Cookies and Cream No Bake Cheesecake. Enjoy!
