In a story you’d almost wish was made up, a drunken Taiwanese man cut off his own penis in a fight with his girlfriend. The 46 year old man got into a brouhaha with his girlfriend, and thought revenge means cutting off his penis AND testicles with a pair of scissors. Pause for sympathy pain. Just wait, it gets better.
He then flushed the severed willy down the toilet. (Yeah, why stop while you’re ahead right??)… Read the rest

Left Hand’s (Longmont, CO) Belgian tripel is back after 4 years. 2009 was the last time you could but St. Vrain- named for the river the flows near the brewery in Colorado. This tripel is light bodied, fruity, and of course, chock full of alcohol. The artwork (seen above) has been updated for 2013′s release.
