So you're minding your own business when all of a sudden, a nuclear bomb goes off, there's a shock wave, fires all around, general destruction and you, having somehow survived, need a drink. What can you do? There is no running water, not where you are. But there is a convenience store. It's been crushed by the shock wave, but there are still bottles of beer, Coke and diet soda intact on the floor.
So you wonder: Can I grab one of those beers and gulp it down?

Hal, Such great information. I have a Lootable Convenience Store across the alley but boy, I also like the basement idea☺ Thank you for such a caring article.

I would like to see a study of the life expectancy of radioactive beer tasters. Kind of like that John Wayne movie shot in near the Nevada test site.

Given the overall circumstances that might lead me to drink radioactive beer, it’s probably not going to be the beer that does me in.
