Mt. Hood Pint Glass Is Classy, Because Oregon

oregon-pint-glass

Look, if no one had told us that this pint glass has a perfect replica of Oregon’s highest peak, Mt. Hood, molded in its base, we probably would have never noticed. But now that we have, we think it’s kind of neat. Made by North Drinkware in Portland, Oregon (where else?), this pint is an American-made, custom blown 16 oz. glass.

Using United States Geological Survey (USGS) data (depicting ridges, canyons, and peak) a 3D model of Mt. Hood is integrated into the mold so your beer cascades around the mountain when you pour it into the glass. The Oregon Pint delivers a connection to the mountains that surround us, and the satisfying experience of drinking a local crafted beer out of a local crafted glass – all made here in Oregon.

We suppose this will be particularly popular to Oregonians, though it has a certain artistic appeal beyond that state’s borders. We can’t imagine that it’s all Portlanders who ordered $160,000 worth of glasses (as of this writing), at $35 a pop. It’s on Kickstarter with the funding goal well in the rearview mirror, so head on over and pre-order your own if that’s your thing.

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.

Coffee Mug With Integrated Pipe

Coffee-Mug-With-Pipe-In-Handle

If the first thing you want to do when you get up in the morning is smoke up, we might want to suggest you could have a problem. Then again, we don’t judge and if that’s how you chose to live your life, then all the power to ya! So wouldn’t it be great if you were able to take a sip of your morning Joe and have a little toke at the same time, from the same vessel? That’s exactly what the Pipemug lets you do. They’re intended for tobacco use only (wink wink), and feature a fully functional pipe, with the mouthpiece on the handle and the chamber sticking out like a mushroom on the side. Prices start at $49 and don’t seem to go much higher than $60.

The Whisker Dam Protects Your ‘Stache From Dipping Into Your Suds

whisker-dam-7

It’s the little inventions that get us excited. Tiny doodads that can make a world of difference in some settings. Take the Whisker Dam for instance. It’s a metal object whose only purpose is to keep your moustache dry while you drink beer. This is a problem any self-respecting moustachioed man will know about: suds-infused hairs following a good sip of a properly poured beer. Well, the Whisker Dam attaches to almost any drinking vessel and creates a smaller opening through which your beer can flow, but which keeps your face adornments nice and dry.

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

Granted, you may also miss out on the head itself, which beer aficionados will tsk-tsk you for, but if all you want is to get some liquid cereal down your gullet without making a mess of your facial hair, we totally dig the $20 purchase.

Deal Of The Day: 14% Off On BACtrack Vio Keychain Breathalyzer

redesign_BACtrack_MF1_1014

Going out for drinks always means of thinking about a safe way to get back home. We wouldn’t suggest using this device to determine whether you’re legal for driving, just in case. But it’s also cool to see where things stand. It’s called the BACTrack Vio, is small enough to fit on a keychain and can tell you your blood alcohol level in seconds. We’ve been using it for the last few weeks, and I can attest that it works quite well. It has a small flip-out straw through which you blow, and the results are displayed on your smartphone. The app will tell you how long it should take you to sober up, as well as give you the ability to share your drunkenness level with your friends… if that’s your thing. It doesn’t use fuel cell technology, so it’s likely not as accurate as police-grade breathalyzers, but it’s still accurate enough for entertainment purposes. And it’s on special for $43 today, down from $50.

B4RM4N Smart Shaker Hopes To Take The Guesswork Out Of Making Drinks

146523-KSFront4-7578d0-large-1414234846

Not everyone is adept at making tasty libations. You have to look up a recipe on your phone, measure each spirit using little tumblers, you end up spilling some every time… heck, it’s harder than it looks. Ok, not that hard, to be honest, it’s pretty simple but it can be even simpler with the help of B4RM4N. This is a cool cocktail shaker laden with tech: there’s an accelerometer, a bluetooth module, and a weight sensor. Once connected to your smartphone, simply load up the recipe you want and start pouring the ingredients straight into the shaker. It’ll tell you when you stop pouring, when to switch ingredients, how much ice (and which kind) to put, and even how long to shake (or whether you need to stir). There are social features that let you share the recipes you develop yourself with other users, add well as the ability to share online.

It’s a Kickstarter project at the moment, with expected delivery in time for summer 2015. A $119 early bird pledge will get you one.

Whisky Wedge Perfects The Drinking Experience

whiskey_wedge_1

When drinking whisky, you want to chill your liquor as much as possible, while diluting it as little as possible. There are many ways to accomplish this, from using chilled metal pucks to shaping your ice into a giant ball. You can now add the Whisky Wedge to that list. It’s a combination tumbler and silicone mold that shape your ice into a wedge that perfectly fits the glass. This way your liquor rests against an inclined surface of ice, but not more, preventing the melting of too large a volume of water and the diluting of your drink. It also looks kind of slick. It’s $15 and comes with the glass and the mold.

Classy: Bev-Bag Is A Booze-Carrying Purse

bev-bag

The only thing that’s classier than pouring wine out of a cardboard box is pouring it out of a purse. And that’s exactly what you’ll get to do if you buy the Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. It’s a normal-looking purse that just happens to house a 28 oz. flask with a hidden spigot on the outside. If you’re at a park, say, and the fancy strikes you, you can easily access your libations just by opening the spigot, tilting the bag and pouring. And when you’re not drinking, the bag itself does have space to carry all the normal… things girls carry in their bags.

It comes in four colours and costs all of $36.

MittenFlask Is Perfect For The Slopes

FLSK-4548

Winter is just around the corner, and you’ll be wanting to booze up on the slopes, we know. No, you’re not? What kind of a person are you? And you call yourself a man…

Ok, whatever, we won’t judge. But if you do want to liquor up a bit while carving some snow, the MittenFlask seems just about perfect. One of the two mittens features a flask, connected to a bite valve so you won’t have to try to unscrew a top with mitten hands. We don’t know how much liquid it fits, but at $15 it doesn’t matter; some liquor is better than none.
