Having a hobby is good for you. People would go insane if they didn’t have interests outside of work, as it gives them a way to express themselves and indulge in something fun. That might translate to Zumba classes or woodworking for some, but there those in the world who just really love beer. So much so that they can not only tell slight differences in brewing practices, but also can’t stand not to have it a specific way.

Enjoying ipa’s, brown ales, stouts, porters, lagers, and more is done best through having it directly from the tap. The way you store and pour this liquid will determine the experience you have when you drink it. If you can’t get an entire keg hooked up at home, this Fizzics Waytap Beer Dispenser will at least give you a better aroma, flavor and mouth feel out of a can or bottle.

To use this device, you only need to put in 4 AA batteries, a 12-25 ounce can or 12 ounce bottle, and pull the handle forwards gently. This will pour your drink under pressure, and uses sound waves to convert the natural carbonation into delicious, creamy foam. This is a $90 purchase that is for beer lovers alone, coming in black or white (the latter version costs $129.99). For those that love beer and drink a lot of it, there’s also a $359.99 version for growlers.

This Bottle Lock makes sure the holidays don’t get too merry Tue, 13 Dec 2016 18:30:10 +0000 bottle-lock

The holidays are a time where we’re all supposed to set aside our differences as friends and family to come together and celebrate. Regardless of what you do to observe this time of year, there’s a warmth and cheer in the air that is absolutely contagious. The parties at the end of the month are also pretty stellar, but for those of you that have little ones coming over, you need to be wary of how easy it is to access the spirits for that extra-merrymaking in the evenings.

You can put your booze on a high shelf, but for families with minors who are old enough to understand how to use chairs to get to things they’re not supposed to touch, this won’t be enough. To make sure that no one is going to get their holiday spirits up without your say-so, you can get this 3-pack of polycarbonate Bottle Locks. It’s the sort of thing you would find in a liquor store, but will make sure your troubled cousin or alcoholic uncle can’t bust into it.

This was designed to fit just about any size bottle, and the key will work with any of the locks that come in this set. This isn’t terribly expensive at around $24, but will be cheaper than the hospital trip associated with alcohol and will let your family avoid becoming another statistic. That being said, everyone is a statistic of some sort or another, so the comparison isn’t completely fair. Either way, tis the season, so drink responsibly.

The Crafthouse makes your cocktail taste like a professional bartender made it Fri, 25 Nov 2016 19:30:51 +0000 drink-smoker-crafthouse

Everything can be a hobby if you want it to be. There aren’t really limits to what you can do in your off time, so if you want to collect and organize stamps, build a hydroponic garden in your home or spend your hours crafting the perfect cocktail, that’s up to you. As it is with anything, there are gadgets and gizmos you can buy to streamline some aspect of your hobby, and it’s up to you how much you decide to spend on it.

If drinking is your favorite thing to do, then you likely have your favorite spirits, atmosphere to partake in, and accessories to make sure the experience from the first sip to last drop are divine. If you like a bite of wood smoke added to your beverage, then you’re going to love the Crafthouse by Fortessa. This is a glass and stainless steel chamber in which you set your drink on top of a black walnut base and use real wood chips in a smoking gun to infuse your drink with some vapors.

This is obviously for those who can afford the luxury of smoking their beverages, as this setup costs $200. If you do have the disposable income, or are looking for a very fancy holiday gift, then you’ll be pleased to know this comes with 2 small jars of smoking chips. Of course, this can also be used for more than drinks, as cheese and other smaller foods could be smoked in this as well to get a little more bang out of your buck.

The Mystic Pint will tell you about your future, and give you beer Sat, 29 Oct 2016 18:30:20 +0000 mystic-pint-glass

While we know that the Magic 8 Ball won’t actually tell us if someone likes us, whether we’ll win the lottery, or if we’ll finally get into clown school, the novelty is fun. There aren’t actually a lot of times we ask questions like that unless our normal social filters are down, such as when we’re inebriated. Lots of very deep conversations can be had with friends when you’re a few drinks in and are starting to get a bit introspective.

If you are the type of person who asks one too many questions, to the point where you annoy your friends, why not get this Mystic Pint? This BPA-free plastic cup can hold 16 ounces, and at the base of the cup has a die like a Magic 8 Ball that will help you sort your life out. It may not give you a concrete answer about anything, but if it doesn’t give you the answer you want, you can always pour another round and then try again.

This is going to be a cup that you’ll have to hand wash, as the bottom section may not do too well with heat in the dishwasher. While it only costs around $13, it’s pure novelty, which makes it that much more appealing. If you don’t have many friends over for drinks, a little bit of the fun might be lost on it as silly toys are best enjoyed when surrounded by others. Then again, this would negate the need for conversation, so it’s really up to you.

Zing Anything – The only time water will ever taste good Mon, 22 Feb 2016 18:30:23 +0000 Zing Anything

Only on a hot summer day after you’ve been engaging in non-stop physical activity does water ever actually taste like much of anything. You do start to notice the differences in the “taste” of water from one restaurant to the next, but that usually has to do with the quality of the pipes it’s running through. It doesn’t really taste like anything, but it is mandatory that we drink it so we don’t shrivel up and die.

If you’d prefer to compromise with your tastebuds over how much bland liquid it’s willing to deal with, then the Zing Anything might be the way to do it. This is a 54 ounce pitcher with a citrus reamer and an adjustable fruit muddling wand which will infuse whatever liquid you put into it with fruits of your choosing. You’re basically just going to make watered down juice, but hey, whatever puts more H2O into your body, right?

Of course, this isn’t just restricted to water, as you could use this for lemonade or tea at summer cookouts, family gatherings, and more to make your hosting prowess seem way more impressive than it might actually be. While all the pieces are dishwasher safe, the fun part will be picking bits of fruit from the strainer that keeps the pulp in the pitcher and out of your glass when you’re done with it. This is a $39.99 purchase that would likely see more use for cocktails, but once its yours the purpose for it is up to you.

The Ravi Instant Wine Cooler – Why wait if you don’t have to? Mon, 25 Jan 2016 19:30:16 +0000 Ravi Instant Wine Cooler

When you want a cold glass of red or white to end the day, you want it to be exactly to your specifications. Some people are fine with room temperature, but if you like your beverage chilled, you’re usually stuck waiting for it to cool down in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Of course, this is the future, and if you have the money just about anything is possible anymore.

If you want your wine cold, but also want to make sure to keep its flavor integrity, then the Ravi Instant Wine Chiller might be able to lend a hand. Rather than chilling the entire bottle, this is inserted into the bottle neck, and all you need to do is pour your drink. The inside of this device is a stainless steel tube that you’re meant to freeze so as the wine passes through, its temperature will drop. The important part is making sure you remember to put it in the freezer in between uses.

Since not all wines are the same, you’ll want to mess with the valve control, which will change the rate at which the libations flow. This means you can have it range between chilled and straight up cold if you prefer. You will need to hand-wash this item, though hopefully you’ll remember to take that step before putting it back in the freezer after you’ve had your fill for the evening. This is a $28.90 purchase, and will hopefully be of some use to the lushes of the world.

The Log Liquor Dispenser gives a natural feel to drinking Wed, 06 Jan 2016 18:46:45 +0000 Log Liquor Dispenser

Some days seem to last forever, with more challenges and obstacles than you ever thought could be jammed into a 24 hour period. Of course, every bad day has the chance to become amazing, but it’s always going to need some help from you to become better than bad. Whether it’s going on a bike ride, eating ice cream from the tub, or sitting down with a drink, we all have our own pick-me-ups, and it’s important to have those options available.

This Log Liquor Dispenser will let you pour a fresh glass of whatever your favorite libation is directly out of a log. Nick Offerman would be proud. By turning the bottle upside down, gravity will take care of making sure the booze keeps flowing until there is no more. While this can hold most 1.75 liter bottles, keep in mind that once you pour it, you’re committed to that bottle unless you want to deal with a spill. The liquor will be contained in food safe PVC, and will make contact with a brass spout on its way out.

These are handmade, and every log is eight inches tall, with a 4-7” diameter. Since they are made of wood, each one weighs in at around 5 pounds, and no two of them are going to be the same. These are all harvested from Ohio hardwood trees, and are finished with a waterborn clear finish. One of these will cost you $89, and is going to look rather posh in your living room. There’s also options for wine bottles in the same price bracket!

These Light-Up Champagne Flutes will bring in a bright new year Mon, 28 Dec 2015 18:30:30 +0000 Ivation Light-Up Champagne Flutes

Now that Christmas has passed, everyone is anxiously awaiting the New Year. Maybe this past year was the best of your life, but for others, we’re already putting up streamers and stocking up on booze to send it on its merry way. Far, far away from us. To ring in 2016, those who are throwing a party will want to pull out all the stops to impress guests, and that means awesome music, mood lighting, and lots of weird but fun snacks.

If you’re all about presentation and parties, then you’re going to love these Ivation LED Light-Up Champagne Flutes. These are made of hard plastic, so you won’t have to worry about being stuck with broken glasses throughout the night. Not only will they add a fun touch to your party, but you shouldn’t need to worry about charging them as there are batteries embedded in the base, which will light up only when there’s liquid in the flute.

This neat light-up trick happens thanks to two steel pins at the bottom of the glass that react to liquid. Since the battery is only being used up when the pins are in contact with your drink, it should hopefully last for some time, assuming you understand what moderation is. Each glass can hold 5.1 ounces, and there are color options of blue, green, yellow, red, and orange. You can buy a pack of 6 for $29.99, though you’re likely going to need quite a few more if you’re throwing a big shindig to welcome in a fresh new year.

The Right Cup tricks your brain into thinking water is delicious Mon, 14 Dec 2015 19:40:11 +0000 The Right Cup for real

Our bodies, much like our planet, are made up primarily of water. That being said, it makes sense that we should be drinking enough of it to keep ourselves happy and healthy. The big problem is that other things like soda, juice, tea, and coffee taste much, much better. Just because water is an aspect of those drinks doesn’t mean you can skip drinking it by itself. Drinking everything but water is as solid an argument as saying you’re eating legumes by consuming vanilla bean ice cream. If you want to drink more water, but need help getting to a point where you can stand it in its flavorless form, then why not trick your brain into thinking it’s far more delicious than it is?

Putting artificial flavoring in your drink also means adding sugar, or using dyes that can be bad for the ole bod. The Right Cup uses the fact that your sense of taste is directly linked to to your sense of smell. This is a plastic cup that has been infused with food grade flavors so your mouth will get hints of sweet while your nose takes in the aroma of whichever flavor you picked out, making you think your water has a taste.

While this isn’t a coating on the cup that will wash away, the overall effect will wear off over a period of about six months. That being said, this would likely be a great way to wean yourself off of sugary drinks during that time. Handwashing is going to be the best method to try and preserve the flavor as much as you can. Two of these cups will cost you $49, and there are flavor options of mixed berry, orange, apple, lemon lime, peach, and cola might be an option down the road.

Mature Your Own Gin Kit appeals to the rebel in you Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:00:46 +0000 diy-ginThere is nothing wrong in having a slight tipple at the end of a particularly stressful week at the office, or even at home, as it might help to calm down your soul and soothe those jangled nerves of yours. However, purchasing alcoholic drinks does add up over time where your bank account is concerned, so why not save some money with the £99.99 Mature Your Own Gin Kit? After all, at least you know what goes into your drink for sure.

The Mature Your Own Gin Kit comes with just about everything one requires to make your own cask-aged gin. It will be accompanied by a pair of 50cl bottles of gin and a 1L freshly toasted oak barrel, making it ready to drink straight out the barrel. Those who give it a go would realize that this is far from being a complicated process, where all that you need to do is to pour said gin into the barrel using the slinky stainless steel funnel provided, leave it alone for a few days or even weeks, and let time do its dance before you get high on your own effort. The barrel is good for about three uses, so do take note of that.
