These are brews you can use.
Train late again? This brewery is helping commuters grin and beer it.
Long Island’s Blue Point Brewing Company will begin selling cans of Delayed Pilsner in Penn Station during the evening rush on Aug. 14 to raise the spirits of NYC-area workers who’ve been railing against constant service disruptions.
“Whether it’s 2 minutes or 2 hours, it’s scientifically proven that delays are the bane of any New Yorker’s existence,” the brewery posted in a Facebook announcement. “But fear not, we’ve brewed the ultimate beer to get you through the Summer of Hell.”
The Delayed Pilsner boasts a creamy malt body balanced with slight honey notes. “The result is a crisp, drinkable Pilsner that will make your crowded, frustrating, too-much-body-heat-filled delay just a bit more bearable,” according to the release.
The Brewery told Moneyish that the train beers will be available exclusively in Penn Station, kicking off with a release party at the transit hub’s Shake Shack from 4-8 p.m. Monday before being released to other vendors later in the week. Prices will vary, but bottles of beer hawked at the Grand Central Shake Shack run $5 a pop, and draft beers at other NYC locations go for $5.79 to $7.79.
But brewers have been hopping onboard the crazy train lately.
Feeling peckish? Virginia’s Vail Brewing Company dished its first batch of Fried Fried Chicken Chicken last month with New York’s Evil Twin Brewing. And yes, the finger-licking double IPA ($18.50 for a 4-pack) was made with trace amounts of fried chicken in the mash.

Politics are a total buzzkill lately, but Mexican and American brewers at Casa Cervecera Cru Cru and Epic Brewing teamed up to craft a batch of suds poking fun at President Donald Trump and his designs to build a border wall with Mexico. The Amigous Cerveza – a New England Indian Pale with a dash of mango – has a label with a scowling Trump wearing a sombrero – and mariachi pants up by a swastika belt buckle. Reuters reports the original batch of 1,200 bottles sold out within days last May.
Canada’s Northern Maverick Brewing Company also began bottling a 16-ounce “Fake News Ale” this spring that it says pairs well with “with small hands, striking comb overs, HUUUGE egos and all things Mexican.”
This ale pairs well with small hands, striking comb overs, Huuuge egos and all things Mexican. #MakeBeerGreatAgain Clearly no American president has endorsed this beer. 🍻For each can sold of this beer we will donate 5 percent of sales (which we estimate at this point to be 20 to 25 percent of this beer's profits) to help reverse a questionable policy.🍻
If you think those are pissers, California breweries have been making sustainable suds with purified waste water. Both Stone Brewing and Ballast Point have been promoting toilet-to-tap beers.
And Copenhagen’s Nørrebro Bryghus is pouring out “Pisner” pilsner made with 54,000 liters of piss taken from special urinals at Denmark’s Roskilde Music Festival in 2015.
