The metal-as-hell mad scientists of Three Floyds created yet another brew-tal beer for one of their favorite bands. Viking metal masters Amon Amarth were given their own beer, ‘Ragnarok Porter,’ which is flavored with honey and smoked malt. Alcohol percentage? A respectable 8.2 percent!
I'm sure ‘Ragnarok Porter’ is a perfect brew to smash in enemy heads with, but unfortunately, Amon Amarth’s signature porter is out of production. Despite this sad fact, I am still able to treat myself to the beer’s awesome artwork

Coors Light has a history of drawing attention through the innovations of their beer cans, which are becoming more and more like the Swiss army knives of beer. The latest addition however appeals to a very specific demographic, binge drinkers. The Coors Brewing Company has announced that they will be releasing a Coors Light in “Shotgunnable Can” that feature a special tab at the bottom to allow drinkers to easily shotgun their beer.
For those unaware, a “Shotgun” is when a hole is popped at the bottom of the can followed by the drinker popping the top of the can and drinking the entire beer from the hole. This releases the pressure and shoots the beer down your throat. Shotgunning is a popular party trick that many have perfected during their time at college. This new innovation is meant to solve the problems that come with shotgunning which usually consist of the tedious act of finding a sharp object and an air bubble in the can in which to puncture. There is also the mess. Puncturing the can without a good air bubble in place usually causes a spray of foamy beer.
The Coors Light’s can also feature double vented wide mouths, a frost brew liner, cold activated mountains, and 2 stage cold indicators. It also holds beer in case you were wondering.
Innovations like these are always welcomed and no one particularly enjoys the spray of puncturing a beer can. All in all it is a nice novelty that may be worthy of a field test.
