I'll pass on the Uranus, but the Neptune sounds good!
From Bells Beer:
In the same tradition as our Batch and Wheat Series,’ we are proud to announce The Planet Series.
It will feature seven different beers each inspired by a different piece of music from the composer Gustav Holst. Each beer will be limited and released both in six-packs and on draft according to the arrangement of Holst’s composition across all areas we distribute to.
The first Planet beer will be released this August with each successive entry debuting about every two months after. The final beer is scheduled for release in July 2015.
“Our two most successful brands come from a couple of my great literary references. This time, I took inspiration from a great piece of music,” said Larry Bell, Bell’s President and Founder.
Holst conceived the idea for “The Planets” in 1913 with the first complete performance occurring in 1920. Each movement of the suite is named after a different planet and its corresponding astrological character
"Mars, The Bringer of War" – Double IPA
"Venus, The Bringer of Peace" – A Blonde Ale brewed with honey, apricot, vanilla and cardamom
"Mercury, The Winged Messenger" – A Belgian Single

From Reddit: You can get these at my local pub, costs $2
Holy shit, the lazy coworkers make Closing Time a Nightmare too. >.>
Like the guy closing our bar who left a HUGE mess in all of the condiment dispensers and tried to pin a bunch of it on me.
Fortunately, the supervisor took one look, (I pointed out exactly where I had cleaned,) and she knew I didn't do it.
That same night, I was closing off the dining room area and one of my fellow closers in there was bitching that I wouldn't help indoors. Here's what I did that night: cleaned all of our outdoor seating area. That means wiping the tables with cleaner, sweeping, and cleaning the metal trash cans, of which there are five outside.
I then came inside and cleaned EVERY can inside the building except for two, leaving me with a grand total of about fourteen for the evening, plus I cleaned a few more tables while inside.
What'd he do? One area's worth of tables (about 3/4 of what I had already done outside) and taking down the trash (he still missed a bag that I had to take down at the end of the night myself).
The other girl wasn't much help, to be fair, but at least she wasn't bitching and she worked nonstop. She's just slow. I'm so glad I've already had my last day there.
From Laughing Squid:
In 2011 the Ardbeg Distillery in Scotland partnered with Texas space research company NanoRacks to launch a vial of unmatured malt and charred oak pieces into orbit. The vial was launched on a Russian Soyuz rocket later that same year while an identical vial was kept as a control in the Ardbeg distillery. On September 12th, 2014 the vial is scheduled to return to Earth so the two can be compared. The hope in the experiment is to see how microgravity conditions affect the maturation process of whisky.
After being distilled, whisky needs to be aged or matured in a cask that is typically made of charred oak. It’s this process that gives whisky its color and much of its flavor as the whisky interacts with the charred wood over a number of years. Interestingly, despite originating at a distillery in Scotland, this space whisky cannot be called scotch whisky, because by law scotch is required to be aged in an oak barrel in Scotland, not space, for three years.
