    This article is the second of four in the Daily Dot’s series on the future of booze and how Americans’ relationship to alcohol is shifting amid the coronavirus pandemic. Hide Before the novel coronavirus caused sweeping lockdowns and stay-at-home orders across the country, most Americans relied on bars and liquor stores to take care of their alcohol needs. While pre-COVID-19 America had already taken to food-delivery services like Uber Eats and Favor, alcohol-delivery apps such as Drizly and Minibar had not yet integrated into the nation’s day-to-day—or weekend-to-weekend—routines.  Hide But as the coronavirus pandemic began wreaking havoc on the economy, it also boosted the sales and name recognition of alcohol-delivery apps as people confined to their homes searched for the...
    As a twenty-something woman, I remember my middle-aged relatives complaining that they’d had to all but knock drinking on the head, as they just couldn’t handle how it made them feel the next day. At the time, I thought they were lightweight wusses. Today, I am one of them. Like so many middle-aged people, I’ve found that it now takes relatively little to give me a crashing hangover the next day. Worse still, they seem to linger for an age. The last red-wine-induced hangover I had was so bad that I banned myself from drinking it. But what if there was a magic potion that could enable me to have a couple of glasses of wine and feel no ill...
    PHILIPPINES’ President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered citizens to disinfect coronavirus masks with petrol if they can’t use alcohol.

    At 10 p.m. today, July 23, an executive order issued on July 21 by Governor Jared Polis will take effect, and all alcoholic beverage sales at establishments with on-premise consumption licenses must end at 10 p.m. for the next thirty days. That order made already struggling bars and restaurants very unhappy, and today Polis issued an update to his executive order that is unlikely to make them any happier. "Rather than applying to all who are licensed to sell alcohol," his office announced, "the Executive Order has been amended to apply to only those who are licensed to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption. Alcohol may still be delivered and grocery and liquor stores may continue alcohol sales after 10:00 p.m."...

    Nicole Karlis July 18, 2020 6:00PM (UTC) Most hand sanitizers contain some form of alcohol, a disinfectant; yet as any distiller will tell you, not all alcohols are created equal. Inexperienced or unscrupulous chemists may accidentally create toxic alcohols, including one which can cause blindness.  Something like this appears have happened during the production of some hand sanitizer, a hot commodity during the global pandemic. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that some hand sanitizers that are labeled as containing ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol, and what is in spirits) have tested positive for methanol, also known as wood alcohol. According to the FDA's recall list, there are 69 hand sanitizer products that they advise consumers not to use. On...

    Ben Roethlisberger’s NFL career, chock-full of on-field accomplishments that one day will land him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has been sprinkled with off-field trouble. The 38-year-old Steelers quarterback on Sunday addressed some of those weaknesses.

    Airlines are cutting off booze sales during the coronavirus pandemic. According to CNN, Delta, American, as well as European airlines, are turning off the alcohol spigot during the pandemic.

(RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) It’s not clear when alcohol sales on the airlines will resume as usual. What an absolute joke. Airlines banning alcohol sales is just spitting in the face of freedom and everything we love here in America. Look, I think we can all agree flying is a pretty miserable experience. I don’t think that’s a hot take at all. Flying is awful. Whether...
