uxvyp3Do 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…

Women are drinking almost as much as men, new studies show. The analysis was done on 4 million people and there were some interesting findings. Before, men were more than twice as likely to drink alcohol in comparison to women. Now men are only 1.1 times as likely. Raise your glass ladies, this world isn’t just for men to enjoy!

Iraq’s parliament passes a law banning alcohol. The import, production or selling of alcohol is being banned in Iraq. The population’s response to the unexpected news is mostly negative given that many people depend on it for their business’ profit. The fine for breaking this law is up to £17,000. You won’t find us traveling there any time soon.

The last Craft Beer Race of the year will take place this weekend. For those who don’t know, the East Coast race is 5 kilometers long (a little over 3 miles) and is followed by a craft brew festival. It’s the perfect for those who love booze but also love to be active.
