Since his Twitter presence caused a ton of trouble for his company and forced him to step down as chairmen of Tesla, Elon Musk has a little bit of time on his hands. He's taken up the refuge hobby of middle-aged dudes everywhere: homebrewing. That's right, y'all. Tesla-branded tequila is coming.
Of course, this is no garage operation: You fix a project car; Elon launches a convertible into space. The mega-rich carmaker has already shared an appropriately futuristic bottle prototype for his new spirit, extending the pew-pew font of his brand for "Teslaquila."

Musk has not made it clear whether the bottles will be for sale or used as a promotional item for the company, though we'd have to question the logic giving away bottles of tequila with cars.
This is far from Musk's most outlandish idea: He notably sold $500 flamethrowers earlier this year. And Musk might be emboldened to pursue even more outlandish ideas because of his undying support from some A-listers. Kanye West recently felt so compelled to defend the magnate that he hopped on a table and shouted out a defense to anyone who would listen.
“Elon Musk? I don’t care who’s over at his house, leave that man the fuck alone,” Kanye told students at Detroit's College for Creative Studies. “Leave that man the fuck alone.”
