Don’t Miss One Second Of TV With This Specially Shaped Mug

television-watching-beer-mug

What a time to be alive! The TV Beer Mug is a plastic mug with the top part shaved off at an angle. Why? Well, so you can still see the TV when you bring it up to your mouth to drink, of course! It’s not a problem I noticed I had, because I think my brain shuts off momentarily while I sip my beer, much like I don’t notice myself blinking; it’s just something that happens, and happens often. But not that I’ve seen this product, it makes me wonder how I lived.

Sadly it seems to be made for right-handed drinkers only, but for the sake of not missing a single millisecond of whatever it is you’re watching, you could always just suck it up and drink with the “wrong” hand. It’s $11.

magnetic-one-handed-bottle-opener-2694

The Throttle Opener is a small magnetic one-handed bottle opener. It automagically clasps your bottle cap and gives you just enough leverage to pop it out with your thumb. That’s it. That’s all it does. It’s one of those cool things to have when you’re drinking beer, because well, when you’re drinking enough of it you might find it entertaining. It’s a $19 pledge, and shipping could happen as soon as November.

Levitating Drinkware

Levitating-Cup-Drinkware-That-Defies-Gravity-image-2-672x372

You can drink alcohol to get drunk, or you can try to class it up and turn it into a whole experience instead. In your quest to do so, you might opt for high end liquors, fancy glasses and now, levitating drinkware. Levitating CUP uses a magnetic base and special glasses that float above it trough Electromagnetic Suspension, to awe your guests and give the evening that little extra flair that many people look for. There’s a permanently wired base, and a battery-powered one that allows you to carry the glass-base duo around your home. The drinking vessels are solidly anchored in place, so it’s relatively easy to transport without worrying about spillage. They come in different shapes accommodating all kinds of liquids, even mundane drinks like coffee. That’s right, you can get your cup of Joe to float, if that will somehow spice up your day. Prices start at $139 with Very Early Bird pricing.

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.

A PB&J Bottle Of Old Fashioned

pbj_old_fashioned_1

When it comes to putting things in our mouths, we’re big fans of big bold tastes. That’s why we are such big fans of bacon. But the tasty cured meat isn’t the only flavour that gets our buds going. The peanut butter and jelly combination is a staple in any kid’s lunch box, and for good reason: that stuff is tasty! Now that you’ve grown up, you might be interested in the Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned instead.

– Warming tasty bourbon with notes of peanut butter and jam
– Sweetened using homemade raspberry syrup
– Salted with pink Himalayan rock salt
– Each burly bottle is labelled and corked by hand in East London
– Dipped in a delicious raspberry-scented wax seal
– Even better than the legendary sandwich

It’s already mixed and ready to drink, either neat or on the rocks. Just do yourself a favour and enjoy this libation by itself and not mixed with some orange juice or some other monstrosity. You will be paying £39.99 ($56USD) for the privilege after all.

A Change Of Scenery With These Star Trek Glowing Coasters

star-trek-coasters-1

Everyone is freaking out about Star Wars, so of course the Intertubes are flooded with merchandise related to the movie. So here’s a nice, refreshing change in the form of a product tied to another pretty successful franchise: Star Trek. The Star Trek Transporter Pad LED Coasters won’t beam your drink to a faraway planet, but they will give it a bit of an ethereal glow. An LED in the base lights up when you put your drink down on them, and will give your libation a bit of a shine. That’s really all they do. Oh, and they play a “materialization/dematerialization” sound when you place your drink down or pick it up again. Please note: they won’t actually perform any type of teleportation, except for maybe $30 out of your bank account when you buy a set of 4.

Making Your Own Moonshine Just Got A Whole Lot Easier

tabletop-still

You might think it not worth your while to make your own hard liquor at home when you can just trip on the sidewalk and fall into a liquor store in most large cities. But then you’d be missing the point entirely: some people just enjoy making stuff. The Stainless Steel Alcohol / Moonshine Still makes the process as easy as pie:

This still makes it extremely EASY and SAFE to make your own alcoholic spirits at home. Comes with very EASY to follow instructions and, unlike most stills, there is no running water required. Constructed entirely of Type 304 stainless steel (the type of stainless used in premium cookware), ensuring a SAFE final product, untainted by any leaching or reaction that can happen with other types of metals. The compact 1/2 gallon capacity is the perfect size to get you started with distillation-not too large to make it unwieldy for a kitchen, but big enough to yield 7 to 12 ounces of liquor. And it’s all backed by an Ironclad 90 Day Money Back Guarantee. Try it for 90 days and if unsatisfied for any reason, simply return it for a full refund including the cost of return shipping. PLEASE NOTE: The hot plate in the photos is not included–it is only shown to depict a setup.

Now, we’re no experts in spirit making, but we’ve heard that if you do it wrong, you can make yourself blind or something. So make sure to follow the instructions to a T if you’re going to give this a go. It’s $250.

LED Beer Pong Table Amps Up Your Party

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 12.01.00 PM

Being 35, the days of playing beer pong are far behind, sadly. But I don’t remember it ever being so big of a ‘thing’ as it seems to be now. There are even tournaments for the questionable “sport” in places like Las Vegas (and plenty of others, I assume, I just don’t get out much)! So I shouldn’t be surprised to hear about the LED Beer Pong Table. It’s a pretty awesome looking table with an infinity mirror, and hundreds of LEDs that create an illusion of endless space beneath the surface. The lights change and flash to the music, and can be controlled with an IR remote. Seen in action, it seems to be just the thing that drunken frat kids would love. The full metal construction means it won’t easily break, and magnetic locks keep it closed when folded. It’s “regulation size”, so, you know, you can even do tournaments we suppose.

It’s a $629 pre-order.

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.
