Alcohol Beer Culture Feel Good Hit-Or-Miss

The World’s First Beer-Themed Hotel Will Have a Brew-Filled Hot Tub

Start planning your next vacation. The world’s first beer hotel is opening soon in Columbus, Ohio, courtesy of Scotland-based BrewDog — yes, the same brewery that gave us the beer stuffed inside a dead squirrel. Forget Disneyland — this is the Hoppiest Place on Earth.

This tipsy resort is set to have an IPA hot tub, minibars in the shower, beer on tap in each room, and beer pairings with every meal. It will be a brewster’s paradise — that is, if the project can raise enough crowdfunded money on Indiegogo. (Right now, they’re only $13,000 short of the $75,000 goal.)

“This hotel will provide a complete experiential environment in which to truly immerse yourself in the world of craft beer,” the Indiegogo campaign reads. “From waking up to a view of our sour beer foeders and the smell of freshly mashed malt, to hop-infused spa treatments and beer breakfasts, and even amazing craft beer on tap in your bedroom — this hotel will have it all.”

If crowdfunding is successful, the hotel will open sometime next year.

New York Dentists Now Offering Wine to Help You Hate Them Less


Everyone, at the dentist office: “Whine whine whine whine whine whi — wine? — WINE.”

In Manhattan, some forward-thinking dental practitioners have decided to catch clients with honey instead of scary drills. And by honey, we mean alcohol, of course. According to New York news blog DNAinfo, several dentistries have been offering patients wine in their waiting rooms to help “take the edge off,” say patients

At places like Park South Dentistry, visiting the dentist has become more like a day at the spa, with “cozy blankets,” and “warm scented towels” provided, in addition to bottles of red and white wines laid out in waiting rooms for patients to pour “at their leisure.”

“It’s an extra something that helps you dread the dentist a little less,” said a patient at another luxe dentistry Marini and Manci, DMD, “I don’t know why more places don’t do it, quite frankly.”

Part of the reason may be that it’s technically illegal, as none of the offices have been officially licensed by the New York State Liquor Authority.

That said, we can think of at least a couple more places that might be improved by at least a few glasses of bubbly (DMVS, post offices, jury duty . . .).
