Drinking Gadgets

We seem to be finding more and more gadgets related to beer and drinking. As drinking is an activity everybody at CG seems to enjoy we thought it was only sensible to have a drinking gadgets section.


Box Wine Dispenser helps you maximize every single drop

by Edwin

When it comes to drinking wine, this can be a very subjective experience. There are some folks out there who strongly subscribe to the belief that since it is them, and not you, who forked out the money to drink that particular bottle of wine, how they drink it, as well as the kind of instrument that they use, is none of your business, never mind the fact that it would be a sacrilegious idea in the first place. Ah well, you can leave those to their own devices, as for those who prefer to enjoy their wine the right way, especially boxed wines, you might want to consider getting the $100 Box Wine Dispenser.

This is a wine dispenser that is different from the rest in the market, where it basically enables you to squeeze every single last drop out of the economical and environmentally friendly boxed wines, and yet comes in a functional and stylish countertop form factor. All that you need to do to get started is to place the inner bag of any standard 3 liter boxed wine in the dispenser, and you get to enjoy a personal “wine bar” which ensures your vintage remains fresh for up to six weeks, as it further enhances the function of the wine bag’s design. The dispenser itself will apply upward internal pressure in order to serve the wine above your glass, instead of from the counter edge which is the way standard issue gravity-fed wine in the box works. This ensures there is no fumbling involved as you no longer need to tip the box or squeeze the bag.

French Cuff Bottle Openers helps executives quench their thirst in a jiffy

by Edwin

cufflinks-openerSo you have been working hard the whole day long, and cannot wait for the clock to strike five so that you can take off from the office and head to your favorite watering hole to spend some much needed time, unwinding with the rest of your colleagues and bar friends. If it is happy hour, so much the better for your wallet, although the bartender might be a wee bit too busy serving all of the customers at once when it is packed. Fret not – the next time a bucket of beer bottles head your way, just wave away the server so that other customers can be served faster. You do not even need to borrow a bottle opener, not when you have the $49.95 French Cuff Bottle Openers in your possession.

These cufflinks will be able to open up bottles as easily as they secure French button cuffs, and it does make me wonder just which of the two are they better at. Not only are they suitable for boardroom negotiations, they also do well when it comes to having off-the-cuff drinks with coworkers. The cufflinks themselves are made from polished stainless-steel, where they sport rigid teeth that will be able to quickly lift the cap from a bottle-conditioned Imperial Pale Ale. Perfect for the gentleman who believes form should always follow function, it is also the ideal conversation starter – especially with your new colleagues. Road warriors might want to check out the Wi-Fi cufflinks, too.

Dubstein helps bring beer and music together

by Edwin

dubsteinI do wonder whether the celebrations in Germany has ceased, especially after the country picked up the World Cup slightly more than 24 hours ago. Surely the carnival-like feeling in Brazil is far from over, although tourists there over the summer must be making their way back to their respective countries already. If there is one thing in life that will make it a whole lot more bearable, you can be sure that beer is the answer. Of course, other folks will not agree with this particular statement, and would prefer to mention that music is the answer. I say why not include both as part of the equation? This particular Kickstarter project called Dubstein certainly falls within such expectations.

The Coolest Cooler is REALLY Cool!

by Julie


If you look around a bit, you can find a great cooler that can keep your summer libations frosty cold. Look some more, and you can find some great bluetooth speakers to pound the tunes during your weekend soirees. An even harder find, would be a portable blender, so you can be whirring up some Pina Coladas during your next camping trip. Imagine now, that you put them all together, into the Coolest Party cooler on the planet. Never mind, someone already did.

The Beer Slushie Maker – for Really Cold Brew!

by Julie


What could be better on a hot summer day than an ice cold beer? After a day in the sun, or a round of golf, it almost doesn’t matter what kind of beer it is, as long as it’s very, very cold. I’m not sure how great a beer popsicle would be, but a beer slushy? Yeah, that could be something worth trying.

Build-On Brick Mug now comes in a shade of blue

by Edwin

blue-brick-mugThe Build-On Brick Mug has been spotted in the past, but that arrived in a boring shade of gray which is not exactly the most cheerful of colors to spruce things up, don’t you think so? Having said that, here is the $19.99 Build-On Brick Mug that now arrives in the color blue, and it is not one shade that intends to make you feel the blues, but rather, to add a bit more spice to the entire drinking experience. This is a ThinkGeek exclusive, where it will play nice with most of the other construction bricks out there including the likes of LEGO, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O or K’NEX Bricks.

You will be able to decorate or dress up the Build-On Brick Mug in any way you like with your collection of building bricks, but do make sure that your creation does not end up being an eyesore, and more importantly, stop you from actually using this as a mug simply because it has been dotted with all sorts of pretty useless add-ons. Do take note that this particular mug is made out of BPA-free plastic, and it is far from being dishwasher or microwave safe.

Chill Maintaining Pilsner Glasses for beer lovers

by Edwin

chill-maintaining-pilsner-glassWhere serious beer drinkers are concerned, warm beer is a big no-no, and even more so when the glasses or mugs that those beers are served in are not chilled in the first place. Basically, the entire experience goes to shot, especially if you are in a bar and would love nothing better than to knock back a few pints of the finest brew on offer. While we have come across a Chill Maintaining Wine Glass recently, beer lovers are not forgotten, thanks to the $79.95 Chill Maintaining Pilsner Glasses.

The Chill Maintaining Pilsner Glasses are pretty much self explanatory – these happen to be pilsner glasses which will ensure your favorite brew of beer remains chilled between 32° F and 36° F for up to 30 minutes. How is this made possible? The answer is pretty simple – it boasts of double-walled glasses that have a viscous cooling liquid right smack between both layers which takes an hour to freeze, hence letting the glasses chill a room-temperature libation to 36° F in a short 2.5 minutes. Made out of durable, borosilicate glass which can withstand temperature extremes of -22° F to 482° F, your hands won’t be freezing either when handling this since the double-walled construction helps prevent that from happening. Of course, there are also other alternatives out there to this, so take your pick.
