The Immortal IPA – Elysian Brewing
Elysian Brewing recently unveiled a label refresh for one of its OG beers, which was first brewed over 25 years ago. As one of their longest standing beers, Immortal’s original label was inspired by Greek mythology, showcasing Zeus sitting defiantly on his throne as he harnesses heaven’s lightning into a vibrant scepter of power and fire.
Seeking to maintain a connection to the beer’s original roots, Elysian’s design team approached the Immortal refresh by looking at the original tagline ‘Power in Balance’ as a jumping-off point for new art. They had attempted to refresh the brand several times over the past few years, but nothing really clicked until this original narrative was introduced into a tarot framework – an idea that was first sparked last year.
To further build upon this framework, each of the designers were enrolled in a tarot class and the synchronicity helped to inform and illuminate this direction they’d ultimately charted. Individually, each designer created a tarot card that represents a different part of Immortality. Together all three cards tell an interconnected story, but individually represent a different part of Immortality:
Summer is just around the corner, and the best way to start the season off is taking a deep dive into Regard Magazine’s new summer issue. To celebrate the release of their new piece, Regard Magazine partnered with Burn180 to throw a night to remember at the breathtaking Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills.
As people entered the venue, celebrities were greeted with a VIP red carpet entrance. Some of the talent in attendance included the likes of Top Gun: Maverick’s Jay Ellis, ABC’s Lost Elizabeth Mitchell, and lets not forget Regard Magazine’s summer cover, supermodel and actress Tricia Helfer.
360 Magazine had the honor of interviewing Tricia about her career, and how she was able to yield the level of success. Some advice that she offered to any self-starting individual was “travel as much as you can. I know it’s not feasible at all times, but learning about different cultures and environments can really open your eyes to new things.” It was her way of saying success comes naturally when you have an open mind.
As the red carpet welcomed new attendees, the current patrons were relaxing on the building’s outdoor patio, mingling and partaking in spicy palomas made with Tepozan Tequila. The tequila itself was phenomenal and included benefits of it being estate grown, and 100% additive free. To complement the drinks, Burn180 had presented full-body workout demos with their cutting edge technology.
Safe-to-say, the night was one to remember, and the best part was nobody left empty handed. Public figures and media left with gift bags that had luxury products from brands like High on Love, Calyfx and Tiffany Scott Extensions. For more information on Regard Magazine’s Summer issue, click here!

This year tax refunds are expected to take record time to reach Americans, leaving many taxpayers distressed by the long wait. In response, Milagro Tequila is launching “Marga-Refunds” – its first-ever campaign delivering real time $10 CashApp payments to consumers who purchase Milagro Tequila this Cinco de Mayo. Available nationwide, these refunds are supplied by a newly minted division of Milagro Tequila – the Internal Reposado Service – whose singular mission is to make the wait for that refund a bit less taxing.
“Tax season is never easy and finding out that there could be a longer wait to receive your refund is not the kind of news you want to celebrate,” said Jill Palais, Senior Brand Manager of Milagro Tequila. “But – we don’t want delayed refunds to drag down Cinco de Mayo celebrations, so we’re stepping in with a small gesture to help people celebrate with the freshest, brightest 100% agave tequila – without worrying about their wallets.”
As tax season comes to a close, far more than 10 million returns have been submitted, with over 7 million of them currently backlogged, creating potential delays*. Even prompt tax filing can result in delayed refunds, many of which will not arrive in time for Cinco de Mayo. Whether you filed early, right on time or needed an extension, Milagro Tequila believes everyone deserves to celebrate on Cinco. That’s why they will deliver real-time payments to those who apply for the “Marga-Refund” program this year – quickly putting money into the pockets of tequila-lovers on this celebratory day.
On May 5, 2022, 21+ fans can get their $10 refund by visiting HERE, filling out the brief online form, and uploading a photo of the receipt for a Milagro bottle purchase. Milagro Tequila comes in six expressions – Milagro Silver, Milagro Reposado and Milagro Añejo, in addition to Milagro Select Silver, Milagro Select Reposado and Milagro Select Añejo. This offer is valid for one day only and expires at 12:01am May 6th, 2022. Before submitting for a refund, carefully review the Official Rules including all eligibility requirements which can be found HERE. For more on Milagro Tequila, their website and Instagram.

Milagro Tequila was founded in 1998 by two wide-eyed college friends who decided to take a chance and create a tequila that better reflected the bright, vibrant, artistic world of Mexico City. Milagro Tequila is truly defined by its ultimate balance of fresh agave taste and exquisite smoothness and is made from 100% blue agave from the Jalisco Highlands, where the finest, sweetest blue agave in the world is cultivated. The Milagro Tequila range consists of six expressions, with Silver, Reposado and Añejo expressions of the core and Select ranges respectively. A bright, fresh agave-forward liquid by design, all Milagro Tequila expressions undergo a 36-hour slow roasting process in traditional brick ovens to extract all the nuances of the precious agave flavor before being double-distilled. Milagro Tequila’s unique double-distillation process uses both pot and column stills to retain the vibrant, mouth-watering flavors of agave and impart an exquisite smoothness that compares to the finest white spirits in the world.
Milagro Select is an ultra-premium tequila devoted to the essential elements of the liquid, and confidently lets them shine. With the individual barrel numbers printed on each label, you know you’re getting award-winning liquid; Milagro Select Silver was awarded a Gold Medal in the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The premium bottle is inspired by the clean lines and work of renowned Mexican architect and engineer, Luis Barragán and the sophistication of modern-day Mexico. All Milagro Select expressions have an ABV of 40%alc./vol. and range from SRP $39.99 to SRP $54.99.

LS Cream Liqueur ($36): LS Cream Liqueur is an award-winning cordial inspired by cremas, an ancestral recipe native to Haiti with notes of coconut, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon mixed with a blend of fresh cream and neutral grain spirits. Since it was impossible to find cremas in stores, husband and wife Myriam Jean-Baptiste and Stevens Charles decided to launch their own cream liqueur, inspired by Stevens’ late grandmother’s handwritten cremas recipe which she left behind and that the family had cherished for decades.
Sorel Liqueur ($40): Born of the spice trade, versions of sorrel date back to the 1600s, when hibiscus flowers were first imported to the new world from West Africa. Valued for its medicinal properties, Jackie Summer’s grandparents carried this culinary tradition with them when they emigrated from Barbados to Harlem, NY in the 1920s. In 2012, Jack left a 25-year career as a corporate executive to launch his micro-distillery, Jack from Brooklyn. When Jack received his distilled spirits permit (DSP), he was the only Black person with a license to make liquor in America, and the first to hold this license post-prohibition.

Through Brough Brothers, the Yarbrough’s plan to make a positive and lasting impact through job creation and economic development within their local and global communities.
Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey ($59): In 2017, Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey launched in the United States.
