It’s 91 degrees and humid in NY today – and nothing sounds better than jumping in a pool and drinking some cold beer. While you enjoy (or don’t enjoy) the summer weather, keep your favorite brewed beverages cool with a new cooler. This steel 80 qt cooler features a rolling cart, drain, and cap-catching bottle opener. Happy outdoor boozing!
This is the third bottle-opening related Kickstarter project we’ve posted recently, but eager beer drinking entrepreneurs keep reaching out to us – and they continue to be cool and innovative. The Beer Claw is an ergonomic yet sturdy beer bottle opener made from aircraft-grade aluminum and also is available in additional variations – Beer Claw Mini, Beer Claw Light, Beer Claw Elite (shown above with it’s walnut grip).
If you thought the Crystal Skull Shot Glass was cool, but slamming shots isn’t your thing – check out the Hopside Down Beer Glass. While it’s obviously fun and novel with an upside down beer bottle inside – it’s also functional too. The double-walled glass will insulate your beer keeping it colder longer, which is always plus.
Recently, I had another hard night as a blogger. Our friends at Tiger Beer invited us to an event at PIPS, a cool place in Williamsburg Brooklyn that was both an art space and table tennis arena, where there was ping pong, unlimited Tiger Beer, chicks, and free food (tough line of work I’m in, I know). While I was looking forward to playing some ping pong, I quickly noticed that everyone playing would totally kick my ass, so I stuck to downing Tiger Beers, eating dumplings and watching the games from a distance. All of which translated to a hell of an evening for my guest and I.
If you like to entertain and your friends like to drink beer – this Rolling Beer Cooler will certainly come in handy. When not in use the cooler separates from the base making it portable and easy to store, and when you’re ready to rock it’ll keep up to 100 beers cold for three days. I was recently at a holiday party with one of these and the built-in bottle opener with a cap-catcher was definately a great finishing touch. Also, it has a drain spout, so you can just wheel it over to where you want to empty out the ice water when you’re done.
We don’t often think of “pairings” when we drink beer, and if we do it usually involves yellow fizzy beer and buffalo wings. Our friends at Tiger Beer were kind enough to take us out for something a bit more sophisticated – a pairing of Tiger and Curry. We enjoyed Indian pancakes dipped in red curry which was quite delicious and washing it down with some Tigers was equally as enjoyable.
If you have the opportunity to visit a beer garden (beirgarten) this October, it’s a great way to kill an afternoon. It may be hard to come by – but get a pint (or liter if you’re feeling ballsy) of Ramstein Oktoberfest if it’s on tap. Brewed by High Point Brewery, the Ramstein Oktoberfest is a 6% alcohol recreation of an authentic German Oktoberfest beer from the early 1900s. This amber lager has a rich malty aroma, a smooth toasty palate, and subtle noble hop finish. Only made for draft, this seasonal brew is only available Sept 1 – October 31st so hurry up unless you’re willing to wait until next year.
Tiger blood may help you to get in the tabloids and lose your TV show, but Tiger Beer will reward your taste buds with it’s world-acclaimed suds. First brewed in Singapore in 1932, this Lager is now distributed in 60 countries worldwide. It first premiered in the US in 2006, and if you haven’t had one in the last five years, definitely give it a try. It’s crisp and refreshing taste is a result of being a truly global beer – made from European and Australian malt, American and European hops, and Dutch yeast. Tiger Beer has won over 40 international awards and after a few sips…. you’ll see why.
While a Bass Ale and Guinness are required for an “official” Black & Tan – Yuengling does a hell of a job making them in bottles and cans. Yuengling is America’s oldest brewery and there beer still does not disappoint. Their Black & Tan is a mix of their Dark Porter and Premium Beer. Rich and dark in color, with hints of coffee and caramel, a Yuengling Black & Tan is one scrumptious man beverage.
