Nerdy Bits: Nerd Bastards Beer, Worst Mega Man Cosplay, Nerdy Cakes, and George R.R. Martin Smashes a Guitar
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOVE: Nerd Bastards has it’s very own beer. Unfortunately, this isn’t for purchase. It’s just something I brewed here locally in Boston, MA and had our very own Jeremy Hudson whip up the sweet label you see. Bitch’n Bespin Brau is a Saison style beer, which is a french farmhouse inspired brew. It’s rebellious, yet FORCEful. Maybe we’ll have to organize a fan meet-up so that y’all can try it.
