Thinking & Drinking is made up of six decks of cards with 54 cards in each deck. Each card includes a question designed to spark conversation, as well as the profile of a craft brewery and one of its beers.
A gift of six hand-selected beers deserves to be carried and presented in something a little more special than a used six-pack holder—especially for special occasions. That’s why Ashley Edmonds created Beer Greetings.
You know those ubiquitous tree-shaped auto air fresheners? HopNose is similar, only it looks like a giant hop cone and smells like Chinook hops—still piney, but with a more resinous hop smell than Christmas trees.
Hydroponic growing techniques have existed since the early 17th century. These methods have already changed the way vegetables can be grown across the world, but why hasn’t anyone tried to grow hops this way?

Think of the packets as mini beer Randalls. Bobby Gattuso, who studied biology in college, invented Hop Theory beer sachets as a way to enhance beers and start conversations about different flavors in beer.
Known for pioneering canned beer packaging, Oskar Blues was looking for a new way to push the aluminum container’s limits while solving some of the glass growler’s inherent downsides. They ended up with the Crowler.
The Magic Opener’s whimsical bottle shape, while fun at rest on a fridge, bike frame or counter top, is ergonomically designed with a rubberized grip to make every opening task gentle on your hands and easy to accomplish.
