Police say a man broke into a Clinton, Mississippi, restaurant where he poured himself a beer before escaping out the back door. Only problem was that the place was right across the street from the police station. Police apprehended Gordon Edward Jensen and charged him with commercial burglary. Mississippi is a conservative state when it comes to alcohol, so we can definitely understand if all this guy wanted was a beer.
Cigar City and GWAR Make a Beer

Port Richey home brewer Rob Chalmers loves GWAR so much that he wanted to make a beer based on the band. After receiving permission from the metal band via Facebook to use its art, he set up a meeting with Cigar City President Joey Redner, members of GWAR, and himself. Thus, GWAR beer was born. GWAR-B-Q is actually the second in a line of beers based on the band and will be ready for the August festival held annually in Richmond, Virginia. Gravity Brewlab's Robert Tejon had a hand in making it too.
