untitledDo you ever feel bored with your go-to booze? When you’ve grown tired of that mundane drink order, we’ll be here to talk you through what’s new and noteworthy this week…

Marijuana and alcohol are pairing up together. A mix of the two could be happening soon, says Constellation Brands CEO, Rob Sands. Despite having no immediate plans for cannabis infused beverages, he said it would make sense for the company to produce the mix given the potential positive impact it could have on the industry. Stoners and drinkers unite!

There’s a beer that’s been brewed from a shipwreck’s 220-year-old yeast microbes. This could be the oldest beer ever brewed. Scientists have recreated this two hundred year old recipe, using live yeast recovered from a bottle found in an 18th century shipwreck in Australia. Inspired by the island’s name, Preservation Island, the beer will be called Preservation Ale. “Some people have described the taste to be like a cider or a sweet, fresh taste,” said project leader David Thurrowgood. So all you adventurous beer drinkers, this one’s definitely for you.

The first ever self-driving Budweiser truck delivered 2,000 cases of beer. The uber-owned start up company, Otto, made it’s first autonomous commercial delivery by driving 120 miles across Colorado. A trained driver was in the truck the whole ride, but never had to intervene. The future is here, guys.
