Sinuous Guitars

Ah, wood. Nature’s metal. Perfect for making things: coffee tables, dressers, even guitars. ESPECIALLY guitars. Most guitars are made from the bones of sinners and the sinew of liars. Sinuous Guitars ($1750+) thought that this was a bit dramatic, and opted for poplar bodies, hard maple necks, dual Humbucker pickups, and a spectrum of finishes. If none of this sounds legit to a world weary thrasher like yourself, just note that the founder of Sinuous forges the Herman Miller’s Eames line of furniture for fun. Duel the devil in style!

Guinness Black Lager

Guinness’s latest concoction, Black Lager, may sound like the quintessential diesel-like beverage we’ve come to expect from Guinness. But Black Lager may actually appeal to a broader range of drinkers who prefer their beer on the lighter side. Black Lager has 4.5% alcohol and still packs a punch with hints of chocolate and coffee, so loyal Guinness fans won’t be disappointed. Contrary to the traditional way of drinking Guinness, Black Lager is designed for straight-out-of-the bottle, ice cold consumption, making it the perfect year-round brew.
