    120 Minute IPA, Dogfish Head beer

    Drinking craft beer has become more than just a hobby — it's a conquest, especially when it comes to limited edition beers that can be as scarce (and as alcoholic) as some wines.

    Some of these beers have huge, cult-like followings, with release parties and wait lines that queue up 24 hours in advance. And vintage bottles of the ones that age well can sell at auction for thousands of dollars.

    In honor of American Craft Beer Week (May 11-17), we've rounded up the 17 most coveted craft beers in America, based on availability, release schedule, and desirability.

    17. Bourbon County Series (Goose Island Brewery)

    Goose Island's "Bourbon County" series includes the Bourbon County Stout, Coffee Stout, Barleywine, and Proprietor's Stout. Goose Island releases new batches each year, but with variations in recipes. 2014's Vanilla Rye, a new addition to the series, is a boozy, 13.8% alcohol by volume (ABV) stout aged in rye whiskey barrels from four different distilleries.

    The Chicago-based brewery distributes to most states, but the seasonal release of the Bourbon County series means bottles can be harder to find, not to mention that the Proprietor's Stout is only available in Chicago, and the Vanilla Rye is a limited edition only sold in 22-ounce bottles.



    16. Nugget Nectar (Troëgs Brewing Co.)

    Nugget Nectar is a seasonal, hoppy amber ale from Pennsylvania-based Troëgs Brewing Company. It's citrusy with a malt backbone, boozy at nearly 8% ABV, and, as Deadspin's Will Gordon notes, would probably be called an "imperial red IPA" if it hadn't already been released before the huge IPA craze.

    It's fairly easy to find if you're in one of the 11 states Troëgs distributes to (and when it's in season), but if you're not, you may be traveling to get ahold of Pennsylvania's best beer.



    15. Utopias (Samuel Adams)

    Utopias is an insane barleywine that Samuel Adams has been experimenting with since 2002. It claims to be one of the first barrel-aged beers and ranges in absurd alcohol contents from year to year, from 24% to 30%. It comes in a unique, kettle-style container reminiscent of a genie lamp, and with only about 15,000 bottles released each season (and usually only on odd-numbered years), they often sell for around $200 a bottle.

    Thirteen different states actually prohibit the sale of such a high-alcohol beer.

    Facebook staff, happy employees

    Sacrificing great pay for a job you love — or vice versa — is a thing of the past, especially in the tech industry.

    Business Insider teamed up with employer-information website PayScale to find US companies that stand out in pay, happiness, and more for our list of the 50 best companies to work for in America. We broke out the tech companies from the list and have presented them here.

    Facebook and Google, our No. 1 and 2 companies, respectively, on the main list, rank first and second here, with Cisco coming in third.

    To create the list, companies in the 2014 Fortune 500 list were ranked using PayScale's salary and survey database. Final scores were determined by multiplying six criteria: high job satisfaction, low job stress, ability to telecommute, high job meaning, experienced median pay, and salary delta. Because we think pay is a very important factor, it had double the weight in our calculations. Read the full methodology here.

    Here are the 25 best tech companies to work for:

    Clue CEO Ida Tin

    Germany's thriving startup scene is one of the most unique in Europe.

    The capital Berlin is home to a mixture of hackers, privacy experts, scientists, and video companies that are making waves in the tech scene.

    Here are some underground companies as well as more established names that are worth watching. 

    17. Foundd

    Foundd is a site that recommends movies based on what you like, as well as what your group of friends likes. That's different to services like Netflix, which just look at your own viewing history.

    The company earns money when people click through to buy movies on iTunes — so it want to make the recommendations as good as possible.

    Mashable reports that Foundd raised a $350,000 (£223,000 round) of funding in 2013 from investors including JMES Investments, Lars Dittrich, and Tao Tao (a cofounder of GetYourGuide). 



    16. Crate

    Crate offers an impressive technology that lets startups and companies easily set up distributed data centres. Why's that important? Well, startups don't want to put all their data in one place. With Crate, companies can spread their data around, and Crate handles all the hard work. 

    Crate raised $1.5 million (£957,000) from investors, including Sunstone And DFJ Esprit, in 2014. It also beat out other companies to wn a £30,000 prize at TechCrunch Disrupt Europe in 2014.



    15. Plinga

    Plinga is a Berlin-based video game developer that creates social games for a wide audience. Founded in 2009, the company has launched a series of games, including Family Barn (27 million players) and Dragons of Atlantis (13 million players). 

    Unlike its competitors, Plinga makes it games available to embed around the web, so they're not just playable on its own sites. That's different to how rivals like Zynga and King work.

    Plinga began as a direct competitor to Zynga, featuring a game called FunCards ("Like UNO, just better!"). It received investment from Rocket Internet, the investment firm run by German entrepreneurs the Samwer brothers.

    3930 Las Vegas Boulevard South

    The restaurant bills itself as the "ultimate burger experience and more."

    Jack Griffin, high schoolFrom finding a new way to treat breast cancer to raising awareness about mental health issues to earning gold medals at the Olympics, this year's crop of high school seniors already boast impressive resumes.

    Based on reader nominations, news stories, and word of mouth, we found 20 incredibly impressive students graduating from high school this year who are already accomplishing more than most adults.

    Amara Majeed is eradicating stereotypes about Muslims and empowering Muslim women.

    High school: Towson High School, Baltimore, Maryland

    Majeed started a global initiative, The Hijab Project, in order to promote the understanding and empowerment of Muslim women. The project encourages women from all backgrounds to try wearing a hijab the next time they go out in public and share their stories of how they feel they were treated by others. Global News and The Baltimore Sun interviewed Majeed about the project, and she was also featured on MSNBC.

    She also recently published "The Foreigners," a book which chronicles the lives of Muslims around the world. "I wanted to show the world that the majority of Muslims aren’t corrupt leaders of organizations that steal, rape, and sell girls on the market," Majeed told BI. She also writes for CNN, The Huffington Post, and Bustle.

    Plans after graduation: Majeed plans to double major in international relations and philosophy at Brown University in the fall, and conduct research on conflict resolution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.



    Andreas Pavlou used gene therapy to test new ways to treat breast cancer.

    High school: Sewanhaka High School, Elmont, New York

    Last summer, Pavlou had the opportunity to research the long-term effects that night-time light exposure has on breast cancer patients, and identified a gene that showed abnormal expression in triple-negative breast cancer, and in patients exposed to light at night. Using new gene therapy concepts in conjunction with a common cancer drug, Pavlou and his lab mates noticed mainly negative growth in cancerous cells, rendering their experiments a success and pointing to new ways gene therapy can be used to treat cancer.

    Pavlou is also the editor-in-chief of his high school's newspaper, the president of the student council, and the co-president of the mock trial program.

    After his father died in 2014, Pavlou began helping care for his family, and recently earned the prestigious Questbridge scholarship for low-income students, which grants recipients a full ride to college.

    Plans after graduation: Pavlou plans to attend the University of Pennsylvania and study international relations.



    Andrew Jin created an algorithm that's helping us understand the genetic causes of diseases like schizophrenia.

    High school: The Harker School, San Jose, California

    Earlier this year, Jin took home the First Place Medal of Distinction for Global Good from the Intel Science Talent Search, along with a $150,000 prize, for crafting a machine-learning algorithm that analyzes massive data sets of DNA and identifies adaptive mutations in them.

    His algorithm discovered over 100 mutations related to metabolism, brain function, and disorders like schizophrenia. Not only do these findings help researchers better understand human evolution, but they can potentially be used to help develop new vaccines and treatments.

    Before that, Jin and a friend created a new chemotherapy treatment that increased potency, reduced toxic side effects, and prevented drug resistance, earning him second place at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and third place in the Siemens Competition. 

    Plans after graduation: In the fall, Jin will start at Harvard University, studying computer science and biology. He'll also spend the summer interning at Facebook to work on machine learning with the search team.

    A strong network, affordable tuition, and campus location are all important factors to consider when choosing a business school. But these aspects don't matter much if you're not getting a solid education.

    Online grad school guide GraduatePrograms.com surveyed over 10,000 current and former business school students about their programs to find which places offer the best quality of education — schools where students have access to relevant, interesting, and challenging courses taught by qualified professors.

    Students ranked their schools on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being a perfect score. The scores for each school were averaged together and then ranked accordingly.

    These business schools earned top marks for quality of education:

    Brigham Young University students

    Most students graduate from college with lifelong friends, but some find a partner for life along the way.

    Our friends at Niche, a database of school information, rounded up the places where you're most likely to meet your future spouse by combining their lists of the friendliest students, the smartest students, and the most attractive students, with an emphasis on religious colleges. 

    We rounded up quotes from students on Niche to illustrate the dating culture at each school. 

    50. Skidmore College

    Saratoga Springs, New York

    "Plenty of diverse, attractive, and fun guys and girls here."

    "There are bros, there are hipsters, there are straight-up average people, there are nerds, and everyone hangs out with each other. Not clique-y at all — very easy to show up at someone's house and make a friend."

    Visit Niche for more information on Skidmore College.



    49. Dallas Baptist University

     Dallas, Texas

    "[The students] are good looking people with great interests that include religion, sport, and the arts."

    "There are so many different girls and guys here."

    48. Vanderbilt University

    Nashville, Tennessee

    MasterCard pride paradeFrom banks to credit cards to handling student loans, the finance sector is full of great job opportunities. 

    We partnered with compensation and jobs database PayScale to find the best companies to work for in the US, and singled out the top finance companies here. 

    MasterCard took the top spot with a 78% job satisfaction rating, followed by TIAA-CREF and Freddie Mac with 75% and 60% satisfaction ratings, respectively. 

    To compile the list, companies in the 2014 Fortune 500 list were ranked using PayScale's salary and survey database. Final scores were determined by multiplying six criteria: high job satisfaction, low job stress, ability to telecommute, high job meaning, experienced median pay, and salary delta. Pay was weighed double in the calculations because we believe it's an extremely important factor. You can read the full methodology here.
