Frost a Beer Glass within Seconds

beer-glass-froster-00

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.

Sustainable Drinkware by Dryad Coffee

sustainable-drinkware-00

We never really think about the toxins that come with drinking a beverage out of plastic cups, plastic bottles, etc. When we came across Sustainable Drinkware from Dryad Coffee we knew it was time for a change. Their new line of drink-friendly products are carefully crafted using olive wood and white oak. By utilizing these highly dense and low porosity woods, it maximizes the cup’s durability and maintains the flavor integrity of your beverage, while also making it free from the harmful chemical additives found in most plastic and metal cups. Dryad’s main goal for this campaign is to not only produce sustainable drinkware, but to meet the standards for certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) – a non-governmental, international organization “established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.” The full line of drinkware consists of mugs, travel mugs, and coffee collars, but who knows what the future holds for Dryad, I know we can’t wait to find out.

Revitalized Airplane Trolley’s Hold Your Whiskey

refurbished-airplane-trolley-00

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.
