Brewsday Tuesday: Beer Ants Gel Habitat

Last Tuesday, we shared an interview with Brooklyn craft beer brewer Dailey Crafton, and many Tuesdays ago, we highlighted a Singapore bar that serves a special drink with ants. Thus, we have decided to launch an occasional series on the intersection of alcohol and ants, Brewsday Tuesday. Today, we have a special product advertised on Amazon: A gel ant farm habitat in the shape of a glass full of beer.

  2. From “the literature”: Ant collectors have a number of choices available for killing,
    preserving, and storing specimens. Immersion in some type
    of alcohol has long been the most commonly used method… J.R. King and S. D. Porter
