Libations fit for every man.

Growler on Board

Growler On BoardSome would argue that a growler full of delicious suds is just as precious as a newborn.  If this sounds like your position on home-brew, then you need the Growler on Board ($30) Beer Transfer Unit (BTU). Forget about laying your growlers on the back seat (or even worse, your trunk!), this BTU holds standard 1/2 gallon growlers, as well as 2L swing top style growlers with handles. Made from low density foam, your growlers will enjoy the smoothest clink-free ride they have ever experienced.

Stu’s Sour Pickles

Stu's Sour PicklesWe’re not sure if it’s the delicious taste of the pickles, or the clean packaging that draw us to Stu’s Sour Pickles ($11), but we are fans regardless.  The product of Stu’s Heritage Foods, these pickled cucumbers provide a delectable blend of sweet, spicy, and sour.  Get them for snacks, or appetizers for your next bro-party, either way, you will enjoy. Oh yeah, Stu also makes a fine Bloody Mary mix.

Tequila Buffet

Tequile Buffet

If drinking tequila is more of an artform than a pastime for you, then you need the Tequila Buffet ($100).  Hand crafted in Asheville, NC from beams of wormy chestnut salvaged from dismantled barns and homes of the southern Appalachians, the Tequila buffet is less an exception, and more exceptional. The inch thick board holds four shot glasses, a cutting board for the limes, a 350ml bottle of tequila, salt bowls (included), notches for your limes, and it comes with your own paring knife. Bottoms up!

Lil’ Reds Cups

Lil' Reds Cups

We aren’t sure exactly what they are supposed to be used for, but Lil’ Reds Cups ($11-$50) sure are useful.  These 1.75oz plastic cups are mini replicas of the infamous kegger counterpart: the Solo cup. Buy them in batches of 60, 100, 200, or 400 and enjoy oversized shots, impossible games of beer pong, confused faces on everyone at your next keg party.

Benny’s Bloody Mary Meat Straws

Bloody Mary Meat Straw
Contemporary Masculine

The meatiest drink of them all just got a whole lot meatier, and we love it.  Benny’s Bloody Mary Meat Straw ($22.95 – $97.95) might be one of the best food inventions we have seen since Cheez Whiz.  The Macho Man himself is sitting up in his grave wishing he could drink a meaty bloody mary through one of these meaty straws.  Made from 100% USDA beef, these meat straws are the perfect complement to your celery and olive in the meatiest damn bloody mary you have ever eaten drank.

Drinkwel Daily Multivitamin

Contemporary Masculine

We have all been there before: too much to drink leads to too many hours in bed the next day.  For those of you who like to stay healthy, but often occasionally enjoy a few adult beverages, drinkwel ($39.95) is the most appropriate daily multivitamin for you.  Designed to replenish nutrients, support liver health and process alcohol induced toxins, drinkwel guarantees that you will feel better, or your money back.  Too bad we didn’t find it before St. Paddy’s day… (via)


Keg Skins
Contemporary Masculine

Tailgate season is over, but warm weather is on the way, which makes for some great kegger outdoor party weather.  Avoid the hassle of dealing with oversized trash bins and ice, and invest in a KegSkin ($39.95 – $49.95). Made from high quality, performance-tested Neoprene, this keg sleeve wraps your keg up like a burrito and keeps it cold for over 5 hours.  The Kegskin stretches and zippers to fit on any 1/2 keg shape.  They even offer customized colorways and logos so you can rep your favorite team or brand the KegSkin for your seasonal company keg parties. The best part, it pays for itself after two uses! (Found by Kelsea. Thanks, Kelsea!)
