Food news: Lululemon stretches into the beer business

Lululemon has gone from outfitting yogis across the globe to satisfying their thirst. The Vancouver athletic wear company is getting into the beer business.

While flavored water may have been a more natural choice, they recently announced that they are teaming up with Stanley Park Brewing to offer Curiosity Lager.  

"Just because you're a yogi, doesn't mean you won't have an occasion for beer, and we're certainly interested in talking to that crowd," Doug Devlin, director of marketing for Stanley Park Brewing, told the CBC in an interview. (CBC)

Also coming from Canada's waters is a new take on caviar from Manitoba. Ringing in at about $40/kg - much cheaper than the hundreds of dollars charged per ounce of beluga caviar -  this local delicacy is made from the roe of whitefish and the northern pike. (Modern Farmer)

Just in time for summer road trips: McDonald's has finally admitted to having a secret menu. A manager in Scotland confirmed the menu's existence, which includes outlandish combinations like the "Land, Air, and Sea Burger" - a Big Mac, McChicken, and Filet-O-Fish thrown together. (Eater)

One Pennsylvania artist is re-envisioning the way we see fruit with his Tree of 40 Fruit. Syracuse University art professor Sam Van Aken grafts his selection for over 250 varieties of stone fruit to a tree, producing a stunningly colourful result. We can't wait to taste the results. (Epicurious)
