    OTTAWA, Ontario (CBS Local) — A driver in Canada who allegedly strapped a toddler to a beer case instead of a car seat was charged with failing to properly secure a child, police said. The 22-year-old driver was pulled over early Tuesday at around 2:30 a.m. in the village of Atwood, near Listowel, reported. Ontario Provincial Police officers say a 2-year-old child was also in the car, sitting on a 30-can case of beer. The Wellington North driver, who was not unidentified in order to protect the child’s privacy, had allegedly put the case on the seat of his...

    July 8 (UPI) -- Vytatutas Kirkliauskas, with his wife Neringa, traversed a muddy course and won the annual wife-carrying championships in Finland on Saturday. It was the second consecutive victory for the Lithuanian couple in the international event, held for the 31st time in Sonkajarvi, Finland. They ran an 830-foot obstacle course, walking in mud and crossing waist-high water and wooden barriers in one minute and 6.72 seconds. Their finish was only one second better than the effort of six-time winner Taisto Miettinen and new partner Katja Kovanen, but enough to win the prize of the wife's weight in beer.

    A number of Democrats running for president are turning to beer to appeal to voters, hoping to boost their populist credentials and stand out in a large field of over 20 candidates. Candidates such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have livestreamed themselves on Instagram having a beer and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper regularly refers back to his past work as a brewer. “Hold on a sec, I’m gonna get me a beer,” Warren announced in a New Year's Instagram story, before taking a hearty swig on camera. Hickenlooper, who co-founded Denver’s Wynkoop Brewing, touted his work in a fundraising...

    You can go all over the internet and find all sorts of advice on how to keep your love and life alive. Here is mine. I argue, quite convincingly, I must add, that happiness can be had by any couple that enjoys fine food and drink. There is an old saying that goes a little like this… “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Oh, it might not be all that popular in today’s progressive reality of gender-less, role-less, lifestyle. But it is a very strong truth. If you want to keep a family strong, tight, and...

    LUCIFER THE DESTROYING ANGEL HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED! Inside the walls of Vatican City, located above the doorway entrance to the Gallery of Maps is a monumental display of Lucifer – the destroying angel! Vatican City is the headquarters of the largest denomination of alleged Christianity, with over 1.2 billion Roman Catholic Chruch members. This leaves us with one obvious question: Why is Lucifer inside the home of the largest denomination of Christianity?!

    A video of uncertain age (recently uploaded to Instagram by @504ollie) shows an unidentified man on a boat holding a gator by the neck, using its open mouth to puncture a can of Michelob Ultra. The man then slams the beer and tosses the gator back in the water, while a “Hell yeah” can be heard in the background. The @504ollie account changed its settings to private, but the video has been re-uploaded to multiple accounts, including Drunk People Doing Things, where it has garnered over 3 million views.

  • Israeli scientists brew beer with revived ancient yeasts

    Israeli researchers raised a glass Wednesday to celebrate a long-brewing project of making beer and mead using yeasts extracted from ancient clay vessels —some over 5,000 years old. Archaeologists and microbiologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority and four Israeli universities teamed up to study yeast colonies found in microscopic pores in pottery fragments. The shards were found at Egyptian, Philistine and Judean archaeological sites in Israel spanning from 3,000 BC to the 4th century BC. The scientists are touting the brews made from "resurrected" yeasts as an important step in experimental archaeology, a field that seeks to reconstruct the past...

    Belgian monks have revived a medieval beer recipe last brewed in the 18th century. The Order of Canons Regular of Premontre at Grimbergen Abbey in Belgium have begun brewing the ale again after rediscovering the original 12th-century recipe and methods in their archives. But be careful if you get to try the new ancient brew - at 10.8 per cent alcohol content it's likely to blow your cassock off.

    It’s been a little while since we checked in on New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s presidential campaign, probably because she’s been stuck in the trenches and polling in the vicinity of zero. But she’s still out there beating the bushes and trying to round up votes and campaign contributions. One of her latest campaign gimmicks involved getting out there with the regular people and playing some beer pong. No… seriously. This is a thing that actually happened. (Associated Press) Her first shot landed short and her teammate’s bounced away. But Kirsten Gillibrand’s second ping pong ball splashed home and she...

    The prices of beer and drinks containing beer rose by 3.5 percent across the board in 2018, well above the official consumer inflation rate. That’s according to data released by the Federal Statistical Office on Thursday. Pilsners, lagers and dark beers were hit the hardest, with a price increase of 3.8 percent. Meanwhile, beer-based mixed drinks, like shandies with added lemonade or cola, saw a price increase of 3.6 percent, while the cost of alcohol-free beers rose 2.7 percent, reflecting their growing popularity. The price of wheat beer and Altbier rose by only 1.8 percent over the same period. Germany...

    A thousand years ago, the Wari empire stretched across Peru. At its height, it covered an area the size of the Eastern seaboard of the US from New York City to Jacksonville. It lasted for 500 years, from 600 to 1100 AD, before eventually giving rise to the Inca. That's a long time for an empire to remain intact, and archaeologists are studying remnants of the Wari culture to see what kept it ticking. A new study found an important factor that might have helped: a steady supply of beer... Nearly twenty years ago, Williams, Nash, and their team discovered...

    How long have humans brewed beer? Patrick McGovern, the world's foremost historian of ancient brews, hints in Ancient Brews (2017) that this activity has been around possibly at least for 11,000 years based on vessels from Gobekli Tepe in Anatolia (Turkey). How sophisticated was brewing in antiquity? Since the ancient artifact ca. 100 CE known as the "Baghdad Battery" was discovered in the 1930's, the purpose for which it was used has been a mystery. Wilhelm Koenig, a German curator of the Baghdad Museum, discovered it near Ctesiphon - the Sassanid capital and previously in the Parthian Empire around 1936...

    Nothing pairs better with baseball—and its wild and weird stadium foods—than an ice-cold beer. But gone are the days of light lagers and limited choices. Major League Baseball’s ballparks offer an extensive list of draft and packaged beers, from big-brand standbys to hyper-local breweries and ballpark-only brews. Beer prices are wide-ranging, too, from a $5 can of Bud Light at a Twins game to $19.25 for a 22 oz. premium draft beer at Oracle Park. Some ballparks—including the White Sox, who will serve 77 different beers on Opening Day—have beer menus akin to that of a specialty beer bar.

    POTTSVILLE, Pa. -- D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. and Philadelphia Phillies’ pitcher Aaron Nola are teaming up. The collaboration announced Monday will make All-Star Nola one of the first active MLB players to have a partnership with a beer brand. “Yuengling holds a special spot in my heart,” said Aaron Nola. “I had my first Yuengling Lager after being drafted by Philadelphia and I haven’t looked back. The fact that America’s Oldest Brewery is family owned and operated is important to me as I value family over everything. I love cracking open a cold Yuengling whether it’s a day fishing...

    Next week, Samuel Adams is bringing a taste of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to its taproom. Set to be released next week, “When There are Nine” is a Belgian Brut IPA dedicated to the judge. The beer’s name is inspired by her answer to the question “When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court?” “We wanted to name it Brut Bader Ginsburg,” an event description by Samuel Adams reads. “But our legal team, uh, dissented.”
