From Pop Culture Beer Branding to Legendary Video Game Booze

 - Feb 25, 2013
If this pop culture beer branding is any indication, today's top trends signal a high interest in all things booze related.

For example, drink creator Clint Slowick put together a variety of cocktails all inspired by the legendary Halo gaming series. While it's not recommended this is drunk while playing the game, it can be used to cleanse the pallet after beating one's opponent.

Other top hits of the day include fashion editorials inspired by the 1960s hippie movement, as well as leggings with a futuristic feel. Designers are looking both to the past and coming times for sources of inspiration.
