Beeracuda Is The Perfect Drink Chilling Sling

beeracuda-1

Are you a beer lover? Well, who isn’t? I personally don’t know of a person who wouldn’t enjoy a chilled beer when offered one. The point, however, is to keep your beer chilled, always. Well, indoors it’s possible with a cool fridge, but what about outdoors? How do you keep your beer cold when you’re out and about? You definitely cannot carry an ice box along wherever you go. So what helps?

The answer is: a Beeracuda! It’s an insulated beer sling made by Burton that can keep your 6-pack of beers, or soda, chilled and cozy, stacked inside its insulated zippered tube. There also is a double-sized Beeracuda that has the ability to store 10 cans of your favorite beer. And, the shoulder strap comes with a koozie, so you have easy access to one chilled beer without having to open the entire sling bag. So, party whenever and however you want to with your Burton’s Beeracuda, which will only set you back $20 or $25.

The Beer Briefcase Is A Thing That Exists

beer-briefcase

Spending too much on craft beers might not be enough to make you feel like these beers are really special. What you need is to wrap them up in a special briefcase with a beer-shaped foam placeholder, so that way you can look like a true fancy pants beer connoisseur when you get to the party. The Beer Briefcase does just that, and it comes with 6 fancy pants craft beers already: Titan IPA by Great Divide, Two Hearted Ale by Bell’s, Hop Ottin’ by Anderson Valley, Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point, Racer 5 by Bear Republic, Indian Brown Ale by Dogfish Head. We don’t know the first thing about fancy craft beer, so we’re hoping they, and the briefcase, justify the $75 asking price.

If you or a loved one falls in the latter category, you’ll probably appreciate the USA Beer Cap Map.

MiniBrew Makes It Super Easy To Make Beer At Home

MiniBrew

Making beer at home can be fun, but it’s also a fairly complex process that takes time and know how. But these days there are enough sensors and tiny processors on the market capable of handling these types of tasks for you. The MiniBrew automates the entire brewing experience, making 5-litre batches of beer with literally no involvement other than getting the machine started. There is very little info on the device, other than to say that it will use “ready-to-brew Ingredient Packs produced by renowned craft breweries from around the world”, and will output a “portable keg that is chilled and ready to tap.” It’s currently in development and will set you back a cool €1950 ($2,175USD) to own, once it becomes available in Q2 2016.

Hexacups Bring Structural Superiority To Beer Pong

hexacup-1

Who knew that the venerable game of beer pong could use a little bit of structural engineering improvements? Yet, there you have it: Hexacups are undeniably better than regular beer cups. Their hexagonal shape give them a few advantages. For one, they’re much harder to crush. Drunk frat boys tossing ping pong balls around will sometimes fall over and screw the pooch. Also, they’re much easier to rack; just press them together and the straight edges will align themselves in 1/4 of the time it normally takes. Also, since the edges are touching, there’s no gaps, nor any way for a stray cup to just fall over or move around during play. At a $15 pledge for a basic set of 22 cups and 3 balls, it’s priced just right. It’s a Kickstarter that has yet to reach its goal, but they’re not far off.

Think Of Pico As The Keurig For Beer

pico-brew-1

Making your own beer at home can be fun, but it can also be challenging. It’s a multi-step process that requires a fair amount of know-how and equipment. The Pico brewer however takes all the legwork out of the equation, and can make an entire 5 litre batch for you from start to finish. All you have to do is pick an ingredient pack, add water, and wait. The company has already signed up dozens of craft brewers, so you’ll be able to make your own Rogue, Dieu Du Ciel, or Flying Monkeys beer right at home. PicoBrew, the company behind the device, will also open up a marketplace where brewers will be able to sell their own PicoPaks, creating what they call “an app store for beer”.

It’s a cool idea, and given the advantages, is totally worth the $599 asking price.

Protein Infused Beer is A Thing That Exists

photo-original

They’re calling it “Where your weekend meets your workout”, and as unlikely as it seems, this seems to be a real product: protein infused beer. It’s called Brewtein and Nutribeer, and one is a regular American wheat ale that’s had some whey protein mixed in, while the other is lower calorie lager with slightly less protein and almost half the carbs. Brewtein has 7 grams of protein, 13 grams of carbs and clocks in at 178 calories, while Nutribeer has 4 grams of protein and tips the scales at 122 calories. That’s… not a lot of protein when you consider a standard post-workout protein shake can sometimes have 40g+, but if you plan on swigging a six-pack by yourself, you’ll still get in that range. And you’ll be barely able to walk, which will only complement your already wobbly post-legday legs. It’s a win!

The makers claim you won’t notice the taste of the whey, and each one comes with some interesting rewards, since it’s a Kickstarter project that’s honestly unlikely to get fully funded. But hey, we’re doing our small part by telling you about it.

Draft Top Slices The Top Off Your Beer Can, Exposes Full Bouquet

draft-top-1

People can get passionate about beer; we drink it to get drunk and couldn’t care less. But if you’re the discerning type, you might enjoy drinking it off a can a little less, since you don’t get to experience the full bouquet and aroma of a good beer due to it being poured through a small opening. The Draft Top is a special tool designed to slice the top off a can, exposing the precious liquid inside. Once removed, no sharp edges remain so you can drink safely. The tool itself is small and easily carried, measuring 5/8th in. thick x 3.75 in. x 4.75 in. It’ll cost you a $45 pledge to own it.
