Beer Tea Bags Enhance Cheap Brew Flavour

beer-hops-1

Sometimes being on a budget means you gotta get the cheap beer, instead of the premium beer. If your palate is refined enough to tell the difference, know that there may soon be a product on the market whose goal it is to enhance fully brewed beer. Hop Theory: Beer Enhancing Sachets are little tea bags that contain a mixture of hops, fruit peels, and natural flavors that, when steeped into a recently poured pint of beer, improve on its flavour enough to make you forget you only bought it because you might not be able to make rent this month. Or, maybe you like to customize your beer and the idea of steeping little packets of flavour is appealing to you. Either way, the first mix is called Relativity, and contains “cascade hops, orange peel, coriander seeds, and natural flavors.” Each bag is made from a soilon woven mesh filter that is derived from corn starch and is 100% biodegradable. One bag will infuse up to 4 beers, and at $25 for 24 packets, it’s a fairly inexpensive way to liven up your malted beverages.

Yeti Colster Keeps Your Beers Colder Than Any Koozie Ever Could

yeti-colster-1

Cold beer tastes great as long as it’s cold. There are foam Koozies designed to help keep the heat away from your bottle and extend your low-temp taste window, but let’s face it, they sort of suck. Enter the Yeti Colster, an insulating container that accepts a standard beer bottle. Featuring double-walled vacuum insulation, and a rubber ThermoLock™ Gasket that locks in the cold, the Colster is able to keep that beer frosty for hours on end. The “no-sweat” design keeps your fingers dry and un-frostbit so you can keep on high-fiving your bros with impunity all night (or whatever it is you do when you drink beer).

And ok, yeah, at $30, it’s pretty damn expensive. But if you’re the beer-by-the-beach kind of person, it might be an investment worth considering.

‘Handle This Cup’ Lets You Carry More Beer Than You Can Handle

Handle This Cup

There was a time when my lifelong goal was to carry ten cups of beer across the room and to the table–to share with friends, to drink myself, to offer to a random stranger. After all, beer makes life a bit more fun and parties infinitely better. Unfortunately, few are blessed with the gift of balance, and it would take a major balancing act to get everything to the table without sloshing beer all over… or does it, really?

Handle This Cup wants to change that. It’s a cup holder with a slot by the handle so you can stack another one on top of it. Keep stacking more cups–well, as many as you can handle–and you can carry all of them with ease.

It’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where you can get one of your very own for $10.

The Hottest Cold One: Sriracha Hot Sauce Flavored Beer

Sriracha Hot Sauce Flavored BeerA beer that’s hot and cold at the same time? Well, that’s got to be Rogue Brewery’s Sriracha Stout. Hot on the heels of bacon, it seems like people are adding Sriracha to all sorts of stuff where it normally shouldn’t be– Sriracha cookies, Sriracha salt, and Sriracha chocolate, for instance. And now, there’s Sriracha beer.

ROGUE Sriracha Hot Stout Beer, made from Huy Fong original hot chili sauce and sun ripened Rogue Farms ingredients, is ready to drink with soups, sauces, pasta, pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, chow mein, or anything you’d like to wash down with a spicy kick.

You should probably go for something else if you want to sit back and relax while sipping your booze instead of running around the house, looking for some milk to neutralize the spiciness.

A bottle of Rogue Sriracha beer costs $13.

The Knockout Is A Beer Shotgun, Water Bong, And Gravity Bong All At Once!

beer-bottle-bong-conversion-kit-640x533

So here’s a product that will do well. The Knockout is an attachment that goes onto your beer bottles and allows you to chug one in a couple of seconds, shotgun style. It does this by creating an air-tight seal around the mouth of the bottle, and inserting a tube all the way to the bottom; this lets air in and allows the beer to escape freely when tilted over. But that’s not all this product does. There’s an attachment (a one-hitter bowl) that lets you light up some herbs and use it as a regular bong as well, if your beer bottle is filled with water (or beer, we don’t judge). But it gets better. Fill it with water, fill the bowl with party herbs, turn it upside down as you put some fire to it and the vacuum will draw smoke in: it’s a gravity bong! And if you really want to kick things up a notch, do “The Knockout”. That’s when you do a gravity bong with beer. In other words, chug your beer as you light your herbs, only to do your hit once you’ve downed the entire thing. It’ll get the party started in a hurry.

As you can imagine, the product is sold out since they’ve had a viral week on the Internets. They’re trying to get shipments going out in January, and it’ll cost you $30 to pre-order it now.

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.
