Takeover to see a world of very average beer combining

Anheuser-Busch InBev, who happen to be the largest brewer in the world, are looking to do a takeover of SABMiller, which means, between them, they'll make around a third of the world's beer. Together, they'd have a market value of roughly $275 billion, and they'll make a killing in the growth markets of Latin America and…

Outrage as McDonald's are dropping Heinz

McDonald's have announced that they are ditching Heinz after a 40-year partnership, all because the company is led by someone who used to run Burger King. The massive, massive babies. "As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time," McDonald's said in a…

Italians drink like Scottish tramps

Italy! A place of sunshine, fine wines and rich food! A country with fashion houses, tailored suits and sexual potency! However, Italians aren't all great. Aside from the whole 'fascism thing', they also don't know the first thing about good beer. This is neatly underlined by an establishment called 'Old Bear' which, on the chalkboard,…

The end is nigh for Special Brew?

Delicious, maddening, best friend of the bus-stop boozer - Special Brew - could be coming to an end, along with Tenant's Tennent's Super, Kestral Kestrel Super Strength and other beers and ciders with an alcohol volume above 6.5%. And it all begins in Suffolk, where the police want to stop shops from selling the drinks. Tesco…

Spot the inexplicable body part...

As noted by @graemelambmedia on the internationally-recognised Twitter service, "McDonalds, why you have penis on your Monopoly promotion poster?" It's a valid question.

A King Size with your Big Mac? The McDonald's hotels in Switzerland

We'd never seen this video before until today and judging by the viewing figures, few people have. So how many of you knew that in 2001, McDonald's opened two hotels in Switzerland? At a time when the fast food chain found its stock declining, the CEO of McDonald's Switzerland spearheaded an attempt to diversify the…

What? Bailey's makes you fat? What do we do now?

Here at Bitterwallet, we like to be drunk. We offer no apologies for that. 75% of us are 85% drunk right now. But there's a price to pay, and we're not talking about forking out for the acquisition of the drink in the first place. All of us are getting fat and sluggish and it…

Bitterwallet reader draws a blank at McDonalds

Avid Bitterwallet reader Rob has spent the last decade spending thousands on the McDonalds menu, in the vain hope of scooping a star prize in their regular Monopoly promotion. It doesn't matter how much Rob spends, however - he wins free medium fries and a flimsy voucher or two, and sod all else. He's lost…

Can We Still Trust The National Trust?

People, you should never assume anything. Ever. For example, never assume that you know how to correctly set up a mouse trap. Also, never assume that the pipe-smoking man you call Dad doesn't spend his Friday nights in a niche-appeal nightclub fannying about on Vermouth while dressed as Eartha Kitt. Likewise, if you're going to…
