WilliamsWarn Is Personal Brewery For Beer Lovers

WilliamsWarn

The WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery is the world’s first all-in-one personal brewery that goes from ingredients to cold, clear, perfectly carbonated and commercial quality beer in just seven days.

With the right ingredients, you can make all 78 official beer styles, and you also have the option of developing your own if you’re feeling adventurous.

It’s not cheap, and will set you back a few Clevelands, but how many people can claim to own their own home brewery?

…Timbuk2 loves Pabst Blue Ribbin?

Timbuk2 Dolores Chiller

Timbuk2’s new Dolores Chiller messenger bag doesn’t just look like a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon, it’ll hold a 12-pack of them as well!

That’s because the beer themed bag is lined with waterproof and insulated material on the inside so that you can pack it with ice and keep some cold ones chilled on a hot summer day. Plus, there’s a bottle opener built right in so that you don’t have to use your teeth. (Again.)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: FAS Matiz?

FAS Matiz

With enough motivation (and time, money and beer), you can turn just about any car into the car of your dreams.

For Fourdin Auto Sport out of Belgium, that meant taking the 550hp, 7.0L LS7 V8 out of a Corvette Z06 and shoving it between the frame rails of a Chevy Matiz.

13 months and 1,500 man hours later, they ended up with the car you see before you, a pure-bred race car that will reach 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 162 mph. (For comparison, the stock Matiz takes 22 seconds to get to 60, and triple digit top speeds are out of the question without a long downhill road and a bit of a tail wind.)

Besides the engine, obvious modifications include a full roll cage, a SUPER wide-body kit, new suspension, wheels and tires, and a wing out back to keep the tail end planted on the track.

It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but when you dare to dream, the results of that dream can often come in the strangest of packages.

…Beer bottles make great dominoes?

Beer Bottle Dominoes

If you’ve got hundreds of empty beer bottles lying around and you’re not sure what to do with them, then take a cue from these guys and build an awesome beer bottle dominoes chain that ends in the drinking of another… you guessed it; beer!

…St. Pauli has a new Girl, and her name is Katarina Van Derham?

St Pauli Girl Katarina Van Derham

After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.

In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.

Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)
