As far as Guinness cans go I can’t imagine that you would find too many larger than this. The only problem that I can see is finding a fridge big enough to put a slab, or even a six-pack of these in.

Frankly, I’m intrigued! Who in their right mind came up with the idea of cupcakes made with beer? But by the look of it they are going to worth a go sometime. Apparently this is a slight adaptation of a Nigella Lawson recipe, which uses Guinness in the sponge mixture and cream cheese icing.

While that is strange, it kind of makes sense – Marmite and Vegemite both use the left-over yeast from the brewing process.
What is really strange is a new Japanese “innovation” in the brewing technology – Milk Beer! Reuters[^] have an article about a Japanese liquor-shop owner who is now making beer from milk – called “Bilk”. Apparently public interest in the 30% Milk brew has resulted in it selling-out. Since there is milk in there, does that mean that it’s good for you?
