"A collaboration between Levy’s Restaurants and the Texas Motor Speedway, this epic milkshake is made up of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager, bacon-infused maple syrup, whipped cream and forgoes the traditional maraschino cherry topper in favor of a bacon garnish.

"A product of Enviro-Cool Limited, V-Tex is an environmentally-friendly, efficient system that cools beverages in a matter of seconds. From wine bottles to soda cans, the unit is able to chill drinks in all types of containers without disturbing carbonation. How?
