Tuned Pale AleEver thought that drinking beer, in and of itself, is pretty pointless?

Well, Tuned Pale Ale has come out with a beer that gives you a chance to do something constructive while boozing: whistle a tune. It's carefully calibrated so you know just what note you're going to hear when you blow over the top.

It's a gimmick, sure, but it's a good one -- and it also comes in a wooden case that you can play like the drums. And if there's one thing we know about being a little bit drunk, it's that the idea of hitting drum-like things with sticks is very, very exciting.

Oh, and the bottle has ridges, which can be handily played with a bottle cap, providing an extra option in the whole noise-making game. Apparently the beer's OK too, if you like actually drinking the stuff.

Unfortunately, it's just a concept at the moment, but with the attention it's been getting it'll be made into a buy-able product in no time, we're sure. In the meantime, check out the pictures below.

Here are those ridges you can play with your bottle cap:


And here's the instant drum kit–cum-box you get with the beer bottles themselves:
