    The fight happened when the woman "[D]id not receive what she believed to be an adequate amount of Sriracha sauce," Seattle police reported.Sriracha on pizza? It's a divisive issue. Some people think Sriracha on pizza tastes great, but some pizza purists think it's heresy. A woman solidly in the pro-Sriracha-on-pizza camp got into a fight over the issue at a Capitol Hill pizzeria early Monday morning. The woman was irate after employees at Sizzle Pie apparently refused to give her an "adequate amount of Sriracha sauce." The woman, age 36, called 911, telling the dispatcher that the employees were yelling...

    A former ombudsman at one of Canada’s big banks has been tapped to investigate complaints of a far more frothy nature: beer. The Beer Store has appointed Charles Dougall as Ontario’s first beer ombudsman. The foreign-owned consortium, which operates more than 470 retail outlets throughout the province, says Dougall will be responsible for mediating operational disputes between the Beer Store, its customers and brewers. He has been appointed to a three-year term, beginning Jan. 2, and will report annually to the Beer Store’s independent directors.

    This radio personality gets more than he bargained for when he decided to punch a set bear trap. We don’t really know who pitched this idea, but these radio personalities at Rover’s Morning Glory in Cleveland decide that Dieter should put his arm in a bear trap. Bear traps are mostly in disuse now, and the bear trap itself was made as a huge hulking trap to hold a half-ton-bear or more. A 200-pound man is definitely no match against the raw power of the double long springs that power this beast of a bear trap from the past. See...

Anyone try this for real? The setup: shotgun, carrot, string and a turkey to simulate the wabbit. Depending on which loads you use for the shotgun, in this take they were using No. 4 Shot high brass (big bb's). Here's what happens to the barrel. Yeh, you would need to replace the barrel. And here's what happens to the turkey (wabbit) Not good for...

    In more than 20 years of writing for this newspaper, I’ve learned plenty. For instance, I now know that Election Day is a newsroom holiday, and the company will feed you scrumptious snacks, even if you write outdoors stories that have nothing to do with politics. Also, I’ve learned that coffee exists as its own food group …. and that after waiting for six hours for a single callback from a source, that source will finally phone you while you’re in the men’s room. And today, I’ve learned this: Don’t chase bears. Especially with a dull hatchet. Super-duper especially if...

    Columbia? Taken. Mississippi? Taken. Sacramento? El Niño? Marlin? Grizzly? Sorry, they're all taken. Virtually every large city, notable landscape feature, creature and weather pattern of North America — as well as myriad other words, concepts and images — has been snapped up and trademarked as the name of either a brewery or a beer. For newcomers to the increasingly crowded industry of more than 3,000 breweries, finding names for beers, or even themselves, is increasingly hard to do without risking a legal fight. Candace Moon, aka The Craft Beer Attorney, is a San Diego lawyer who specializes in helping brewers...
