Taking Beer Seriously: The Beer Briefcase

beer_briefcase_1

You could show up to the party with your 6-pack of beers nestled comfortably inside a cardboard box. You know, like common people do… Or, you could show up with the Beer Briefcase. Watch your friends realize that when it comes to beer, you mean business. Each bottle is individually wrapped and protected from clanging up against its neighbour, and the hard exterior saves them from accidental knockage. At $45, there are much more expensive ways to make less of an impact.

When A 6-Pack Of Beer Isn’t Enough, There’s A 99-Pack

99-pack-of-beer

We’re not sure why you wouldn’t just buy a darn keg of beer, but if you absolutely must get your malted beverages in a cardboard box, you should know that an Austin brewery has you covered. Austin Beerworks is selling a 99-pack of beer called the Peacemaker, and it’s going for $99. Our math skills put that at $1 a beer, which isn’t too shabby a price. The monstrosity weighs 82 lbs., is 7 feet long and presents logistical nightmares that are of little significance to people who are just looking to get hammered, we suppose. It won’t fit in your fridge for instance. And you won’t be able to carry it alone, for another instance. But hey, it’s a 99-pack of beer, and how often do you come across that? Check out their website, instagram and other social media to find out how to get your own.

Leather Beer Caddy For Bikes

beer-caddy

Making a beer run in the middle of the party can get annoying, but not so with the Fyxation Leather Bicycle Carrier. Instead of stuffing that six-pack in your backpack or bringing it back (gasp!) in your hands, just put the beers in this cool-looking brown leather carrier. It’ll fit right beneath your top post, making it super convenient. Ok… we’re sure some of you will complain that you have to take the extra step to remove each beer from its box and individually insert it in this carrier. It’s true… but just look at it! If you don’t have a backpack, this is still the superior option.

But hey, if you’ve been drinking, maybe it’s better to walk after all? Cycling while intoxicating is no better than driving, so be safe.

The caddy will cost you $57, from Amazon.

Every Beer Pong Tournament Needs A Ball Washer

clean-cup

If you’ve been to college and haven’t participated in any beer pong related shenanigans, you haven’t been to college. Like it or not, it’s a staple drinking game, but it is also one in dire need for a product like the The Clean Cup. Yes, many beer pong sessions involve a “wash cup” to remove the dirt, dust and crap that sticks to your wet ball every time it falls to the floor, but how effective is a simple dunk in the water? The Clean Cup goes a few steps further.

“Using a combination of a high pressure stream of water and bursts of air to ensure full cleaning coverage, the ball is then returned to the user, “floating” on a stream of air as if it was sitting in the regular wash cup. The entire cycle lasts only five seconds, perfect to get a good rinse in before your next turn.”

There’s a filter that removes the hairs, crumbs and other particles that normally remain floating in the wash cup, so that every rinse returns a fully clean ball. Granted, when you’re drunk you may not really care. But if you’re organizing an evening where you know people will play this, maybe getting a Clean Cup isn’t such a bad idea. You’ll have to pledge $60 to get your hands on one, which is a tall order given its marginal utility. Still, if you take the game seriously, it might be worth it.

Need a Job? Brew Some Resume-Ale!

Resum-Ale

 

Traditional resumes just don’t cut it anymore. Oftentimes, those who get the job are the ones with credentials that stand out from the rest. However, aside from qualifications, here’s one other thing that you could do to up your chances of getting hired: come up with an unusual or creative resume that’ll get people talking. You know, like interactive resumes that play out like a game or LEGO resumes that you can build, brick by brick.

And then there’s Brennan Gleason’s Resum-ale. It’s a resume that comes in the form of a four-pack of the graphic designer’s special homebrew, something that prospective bosses will love for sure. Brennan explains: “I’ve seen beef jerky business cards and really weird stuff like that. So, I really wanted to do something along those lines.”

Weird? Yes. Cool? Definitely. So weird and cool it was that Brennan landed a job as a result with a Vancouver-based digital marketing agency. Sounds like a good fit, doesn’t it?

Synek Countertop Beer Tap Is Kind Of Like A Kegarator Without Being One

synek-craft-brew-dispenser-970x0

The Synek Draft System pictured above isn’t a kegerator for the simple reason that it doesn’t use any beer kegs. These are large and unwieldy anyway, and you’d have to be seriously committed to beer drinking to set a system like that up in your place. Instead, Synek uses special 1 gallon pressure pouches that are capable of handling up to 30psi of pressure, and block out UV rays. Simply fill them up at any local tap (if you know a place that’ll fill up a growler, they’ll fill these bags up too) and insert it in the device. Just like that you’ve got cold beer on tap, in quantities that are reasonable for any household. You won’t lose any carbonation on account of the special pouches, and once opened they’ll last for months and not days like a growler.

The device is doing the Kickstarter dance at the moment, and a $300 pledge will get you one machine plus 5-10 bags.

An Out-of-this-World Kinda Cool: Star Wars R2-D2 Can Cooler

Star Wars R2D2 Can Koozie

 

R2-D2 is a bot of few words–okay, of many words–but few of which we can actually understand. The pleasure that comes from having your brew of choice kept cool in this R2-D2 can cooler though, needs no words because silence speaks louder than words ever can. Whether you’re a fan of George Lucas’s epic franchise or not, this particular can cooler is a sight for sore eyes and will keep the temperature of your booze cool, just like you like it.

The R2-D2 can cooler is currently on sale for $5.59.

eCool Beer Cooler Uses The Earth To Keep Your Suds Frosty

ecool-beer-cooler

Warm beer is as appetizing as cold soup (sorry, gazpacho lovers), but keeping the temperature down on your malt liquor does usually use up some electricity. If this thought rubs you the wrong way, take a look at the eCool Beer Cooler: it uses the coolness of the earth to keep the temperature down. Dig a deep hole, place the eCool in there, and you’ll have access to 24 beers that will be as cold as your ground is. Granted, if you live in a really warm climate, this may not be that cold. But in campgrounds and other places far removed from the grid, the eCool seems like a fantastic, if not ideal, solution. Also, the beers will allegedly not freeze in the winter, which could make this work year round.

Beers are shuttled up and down through a crank-powered conveyor belt, and installation procedures are described thusly: ” It’s advised to use a garden drill, but can be installed with a shovel as well, if you’re a real man (emphasis ours -Ed.). The earth cooler’s top is very well isolated and maintains about the same cooled temperature throughout the whole container.”

You’re going to have to be a “real man” with a deep wallet as well if you want to own the eCool, as the asking price is around $285.

Drunk for Justice: Justice League Beers

Justice League Beer

Ever wondered what superheroes did to unwind? They probably went out on trips or pretended to be mere civilians for a change. Or they could be huge beer fans and brew booze whenever they get the chance…or not.

These Justice League-inspired beer bottle designs were created by graphic designer Marcelo Rizzetto. Each one features a superhero’s iconic logo and is given an appropriate name, based on who inspired them. For example, Batman’s is dark ale beer with his bat logo splashed across the bottle, while Superman’s is pale lager that’s dubbed “Super Strong Beer.”Continue Reading
