Finnish Brewery Introduces 1,000-Pack of Beer

Apr 28 3:33pm Hungry Crowd
Sometimes a six-pack just isn’t enough. Hell, sometimes the 24 beers in a case just aren’t enough. That’s why some genius went ahead and invented the 30-pack. A few years ago, a brewery in Austin, Texas, even decided to joke around and release a 99-pack. But joke’s on them: A brewery in Finland has just blown the 99-pack out of the water.

Apr 28 2:45pm Hungry Crowd
America loves candy – chocolate in particular. In 2016, we ate 1.3 million tonnes of it, that majority of the global supply. That is one major sweet tooth.
