Wicked Weed Coolcumber bottles debut for the first time

Wicked Weed Coolcumber

Wicked Weed Coolcumber, a draft offering in the past, is now available in bottles as of today.

The beer is exactly as it sounds, a golden ale brewed with cucumber. Take our word for it – it really does smell and taste like cucumber. (Plus basil and juniper berries of course.)  Face it, the South is hot. This beer is like air conditioning in a glass.

Summer in Carolina is a time when days grow long, life slows down, and friends draw near. Gardens burst with brisk basil and fresh cucumbers, fireflies illuminate the night sky, and warm days leave us lounging late, our glasses brimming with golden nectar. Summer in the South is best served cool.

Wicked Weed Coolcumber is a 12 ounce bottle offering.

Style: Golden Ale (w/ Cucumber, Basil, Juniper Berries.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: 7/11/16

5.5% ABV

Drunk reading. Barnes & Noble to sell beer & wine

Barnes & Noble

Starbucks has branched out into beer and wine with moderate success. Taco Bell has tested alcohol on their menu as well. Now, Barnes & Noble looks to be placing a bet on beer and wine.

At an investor meeting on Thursday, Barnes & Noble announced that on premise beer and wine will be available at at least four of their new stores opening soon. This move? To compete with Amazon.

Amazon is the biggest enemy of Barnes & Noble, which has been posting losses as of late. The Nook reader isn’t doing too hot either, as people still love paper.

The move to sell beer and wine is one to hopefully lure people back into the store for their purchases/reading, and sometimes cramming for finals, over ordering in a matter of days with Prime.

In the meantime, I still haven’t had a beer at a Starbucks. Perhaps tonight is the night.
