Your home bar might be lacking a freezer big enough to hold your many varieties of beer glasses and since summer is right around the corner that’s completely unacceptable. Good thing Hammer Schlemmer is stepping up to the plate and offering an alternative to that lack of a freezer: the Beer Glass Froster. In about 10 seconds you can transform your room-temperature glass into a frosty, cold, delicious-looking glass. It works by using a carbon dioxide canister that releases CO2 onto the glass and turns it into an ice-cold glass instantly, and we say instantly because we know you can’t do anything in under 10 seconds. Add this touch to your home bar now and we promise you’ll be thanking us when summer hits.
You might call it “out of control” when drinking glasses are being made for particular types of beer, but we like to call it “classy.” Like the Spiegelau x Dog Fish Head glass made just for IPA’s, Left Hand Brewing Co. and Rogue teamed up with Spiegelau, only this time for a glass made especially for stouts. Of course, there is a reason it’s made just for stouts – it claims that the base drives foam up into the large top part of the glass and the wide opening helps amplify the aroma of your beer. Basically, it’s the perfect addition to your home bar shelves and your Friday nights.
You’ll most likely not want to ride this above 99.999% electro gold-plated skateboard after you pay the hefty price tag that comes with it. But, it would definitely be a great addition to the dedicated art room in your mansion. The fully gold-plated skateboard is from New York City’s very own skateboarding company SHUT NYC. Polished to a mirror finish, this rich-man’s skateboard is assembled to be fully functional from the highest quality components, while 100% cotton archival gloves are provided so you won’t get your dirty prints all over it. Probably doesn’t fit an average skater’s budget, but who knows? Maybe Tony Hawk or Rob Dyrdek will pick it up, or something.
Putting the Airplane Trolley Whiskey Bar in your house, garage or wherever you see fit is something your guests will be raving about all night. A company called Skypak are the one’s behind the refurbishing of these authentic aircraft food and beverage carts. There are various carts to choose from and you can even customize your own, but our favorite of the bunch is the Barrique collection. These are the carts that replace the sides and top with old Jack Daniel’s barrels or old wine barrels. Each one comes with four matching barrique wood shelves, a high-quality stainless steel door and enough storage to store the massive amounts of whiskey you are buying at Costco. Since they are made from real-life barrels each one will vary in color and texture, but we never said that was a bad thing. But, we can definitely say they look better in your home than on an airplane.
Summer is approaching, which means hotter weather (of course) and more drunkin’ nights with more and more booze. East Coasters, If you’re looking for that perfect beer to get you through the summer, without getting your stomach pumped too many times, The Just Beer Project’s Just Summer beer is what you should be picking up off the shelves. A follow-up to their Anytime IPA, this seasonal beer is a lightly hopped, sessionable wheat ale, lower in alcohol content (4.2% ABV), which makes it perfect for the hotter days ahead. Just Summer is currently available in 12 oz. bottles in select areas throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia and Hartford, CT. West Coasters, we are sorry but you’ll have to head east to taste this well-crafted brew.
Have you ever descended deep into the depths of a Volcano? Probably not, but if you plan on being in Iceland soon you can book your trip 400ft down for a 6 hour tour priced at $325. Named Thrihnukagigur, the volcano is the only accessible magma chamber on the entire planet and for three months out of the year visitors are lowered into it. You’ll start by getting comfortable at your base camp that’s built each May with materials hauled in via helicopter. Start a two-mile hike to end up at the crater of the volcano, then walk the plank to strap yourself into the metal cage and start your descent down. Once inside the volcano you’ll spend about 30-45 minutes exploring the massive piece of earth and if you want to get real ballsy, there are passages that continue to a depth of 700ft.

We like beer. We also like filling up cool growlers with good beer. And by cool growlers we mean the one’s made by Shine Craft Vessels.
