The Big Hurt: The week in booze

By DAVID THORPE  |  November 2, 2012

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver is auctioning off a guitar to benefit a cultural center in his home town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Yo, but here's what makes it sooOOooOOooo Bon Iverey: the guitar is crafted out of white oak barrels once used to age Bushmills whiskey! Beard.

Vince Neil is coming out with his own brand of vodka! Fans of the Mötley Crüe man's bad-boy boozer lifestyle — which famously includes repeatedly getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while intoxicated — should keep an eye out for the official launch of Tatuado Vodka, the perfect complement to a rad night of hard partying, heavy metal, killing the drummer of Hanoi Rocks in a drunk driving crash, wild women, great times, and paying $2.6 million in restitution to the victim's family. Hell yeah!
