Google Teams Up With Dogfish Head to Create Global Super-Beer

Categories: Beer

Google just can't help revealing its inner foodie. First, it bought the long-running dining guide Zagat. Now HuffPost Food brings news that Google is teaming up with Dogfish Head to create a Pangea-inspired beer called URKontinent.

Google employees from around the world were asked what they would want in an ideal beer. Then, rare ingredients from different continents were gathered and turned into a beer by Sam Calagione and Co. The dark, Belgian-style ale contains wattleseed from Australia for its chocolaty, hazelnut flavor, toasted amaranth from South America to give the beer a bit of earthiness, Myrica gale from Europe for bitterness, green rooibos from Africa for its floral aroma, and honey from Google's very own Hive Plex, because apparently Google is in on the beekeeping trend. If you don't know what any of those ingredients are, Google them!

The video above proves that tech nerds are, in fact, much nerdier than beer nerds. Also, they have a little tasting via Google+'s Hangout feature, which is probably the only time it has been used ever. The first lucky people to try the beer will be attendees of this week's Great American Beer Festival in Denver. The rest of you will just have to wait until Dogfish gets around to bottling it.

For years, studies of obesity have Air Force 1 found that soon after fat people lost weight, their metabolism slowed and they experienced hormonal changes Air Force 1 Shoes that increased their appetites. Scientists hypothesized that these biological changes could explain why most obese dieters quickly gained back much of what they had so painfully lost.

But now a group of Australian researchers have taken Air Force 1S those investigations a step further to see if the changes persist over a longer time frame. They recruited healthy people who were either overweight or obese and put them on a highly restricted diet that led them to lose at least 10 percent of their body Air Force 1 UK weight. They then kept them on a diet to maintain that weight loss. A year later, the researchers found that the participants’ metabolism and hormone levels had not returned to the levels before the study started.

I live close to the Dogfish Head Brewery, and I have only had one glass of this nasty tasting beer.  I know I will never buy any more again.  If I could have gotten a refund from the bar I would have gotten one.  I like some micro brewery beers but not Dogfish Head.

That is so awesome! I'm going to have to figure out a way to score a bottle of that down here in Miami. I swear if Google or Dogfish or The Village Voice can make it happen, I'll try to be as nerdy as I can possibly be with Google's tools for a review. Well, there's my plea.
