It wasn’t timed for happy hour, but Gov. Nathan Deal on Monday made sure to please fans of craft beer and liquor.

The governor signed Senate Bill 85 into law, which for the first time allows beer and liquor manufacturers to sell their products directly to consumers from the manufacturing plant.

A Danish brewery is taking recycled beer seriously. 

Copenhagen craftbrewer Norrebro Bryghus is putting out "Pisner," a beer made with human urine.  The urine doesn't actually go into the beer. Instead, the waste from urinals at a huge music festival were used to fertilize the barley that goes into making the beer.
