Minnesota Man Invents Beer-Powered Motorcycle

A Minnesota inventor who gained a following for his unusual vehicles has unveiled his latest creation: a beer-powered motorcycle. Ky Michaelson, whose previous inventions include a rocket-powered toilet and a jet-powered coffee pot, said the beer-powered motorcycle he created in his Bloomington garage has a 14-gallon keg with a heating coil instead of a gas-powered engine. The coil heats the beer to 300ยบ, which then becomes super-heated steam in the nozzles that propel the bike forward. Considering the fact that the price of gas keeps going up and Michaelson doesn’t drink, he said he couldn’t think of anything better than to use the beer for fuel. He estimated the bike could reach speeds of up to 150mph. He hopes to take it out to a drag strip sometime soon to test its capabilities. The bike can actually run on almost any beverage, including Red Bull.
