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.
Indianapolis friends Ryan Coyle and Mike Sale created Brew Bracket to be a “beer tasting party in a box.” The idea started in 2011, when they founded a 400-person beer-tasting tournament in Indiana.=–km
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.
Those of us without a dedicated beer fridge are often faced with the puzzle of fitting our beer in with the rest of our food and drinks. Charlotte, N.C.-based design engineer Brian Conti designed a solution to that annoyance: the bottleLoft.
These days, most beer fans have devised a personal method for traveling with beer in their checked luggage. But no matter how many socks you stuff your bottles into, there’s always the chance that a heartbreaking (and messy) breakage will occur. That’s what inspired two friends to invent the BrewHug.
The idea for BottleKeeper came when two cousins improvised a solution to keep a beer bottle cold and protected on the beach: a beer bottle inside a koozie, then inside a stainless steel water bottle for extra insulation.
The things that make a shower beer so great are also the things that can turn it into a disaster: warmth, water and cramped, slippery surfaces. That’s why Phil Novara and Zach Walsh invented the Shakoolie—an insulated beer holder that safely sticks on a shower wall.
Beertone is literally, the Pantone of beer—Pantone being the self-described worldwide standard language for color communication. What Pantone does for color on everything from coffee cups to clothes, Beertone does for beer color.
If your beer cellar looks more like a disaster area, the Brewbicle might be just for you. Made of sturdy fiberboard, with leather handles and aluminum hardware, the Brewbicle provides a secure, stackable and attractive way to age your beer.
Hydro Flask is a company that makes beverage bottles—from 12-ounce single-serves to 64-ounce growler-sized vessels, with several sizes in between. Made from food-grade 18/8 stainless steel, these reusable containers also feature double-wall vacuum insulation.
In the early ’90s, two things happened: the rise of microbreweries, which started releasing their own “breweriana” into the coaster-sphere… and the internet. That’s when the “tegestologist,” or coaster collector, community really blew up.
The price of gas is soaring, and the warmer weather is encouraging you to get more exercise. Geoffrey Franklin was inspired by two of his favorite things—bikes and beers—to create three items that help the biking beer aficionado get from point A to point B.
With good looks that fit in with practically any décor, the Man Table inspired one fan to proclaim, “It’s an oasis of manhood in my wife’s living room!” Just don’t forget to put a coaster under that beer.
