Hermetus Bottle Opener Pops And Seals Your Beer

Outdoor folks have more bottle openers than we know what to do with. We have one on every knife and multi-tool. We have a stack of freebies from every trade show and sports festival we've ever been to. We have the "damn I forgot to put one of those five dozen bottle openers in my suitcase" collection from road trips. We have the one that some gear manufacturer decided to put on a random piece...

Liberty Bottleworks Offers Customizeable Aluminum Beer Growlers

If you've been anywhere near the water bottle aisle of a sporting goods store lately, you probably already know: The water bottle market is about as saturated a market as there is. In the end, a guy or gal really only needs so many water bottles (one?) no matter how many shapes, sizes and materials they come up with. Not surprisingly, water bottle makers are moving into other segments. One popular recipe combines two trendy...

Lifetime Guy-Cred Award: Guy Survives Alaska Wilds On Beer (And Probably Weed)

Photo: dyobmit As reported by the Anchorage Daily News  , 52-year-old Clifton Vial became stranded in Nome, Alaska last month after deciding to leave town and see how far north he could drive on a road that doubles as a snowmobile trail in winter. Vial hit a snow bank before he could properly find out and became stranded in the isolated Alaskan outpost. No phone, no food, no blankets-- light, $30 jacket and jeans, family...

Apr├Ęs Sport: Gifts For The Outdoor Alcohol Enthusiast

Outdoors living and beer (sometimes wine, margaritas are good too) are nearly inseparable. You imbibe around the campground, after skiing or biking, during fishing trips, and on and on. Alcohol really never tastes so good as when it's the punctuation on a great day spent outside. Unlike sport-specific gear that can be difficult to shop for (what does she have, what does she need, is this a solid-performing item, etc.), nearly every type of outdoorsman...

The Brauler: Stainless Steel Growler For Your Drinking Pleasure

  Certain products may not be all that practical or necessary, but become successful thanks solely to sheer awesomeness. I think the Brauler is one of those products. I'm guessing "the world's first stainless steel modular growler system" is going to be more expensive than the usual glass growler. And since there really doesn't seem to be a problem with glass growlers, I don't know that a stainless steel version was something the market was...

Beer And Bikes With 6 Pack Cinch

  Ever since biking became ultra-fashionable, there have been all kinds of weird bike accessories.  Back when biking was all about sweaty, Lycra-adorned cyclists and dirty, bloody mountain bikers, carrying beer around on a bike wasn't really enough of a priority to design a product around. But now that cycling has grown to include eco-loving commuters, having a strap to carry your beer back from the grocer is actually viable enough to command an Etsy...

Handy Camping Tool? Bottle Opener With Integrated Garbage Bin

  I don't know how many times I've laid down on the couch only to shower myself and my upholstery with a hailstorm of bottle caps from a recent camping trip or BBQ outing--or maybe just from sitting on the couch two minutes before. You see, nine out of 10 times, I don't have a garbage bin handy when I'm popping a beer. Sure, I could get up and throw the bottle cap out, but...

Backcountry Beer Gets Bubblier Thanks to Stanley's Carbonated Bottle

So I was reading through Skiing magazine when I was reminded of a product that I've been meaning to post about. It's the Stanley Carbonated Drink Bottle. And like its name indicates, it's not just another water bottle: it's made for carbonated beverages, unlike other bottles that aren't recommended for CO2-infused liquids. So instead of lugging a cooler-full of inefficient and clinking beer bottles around, pour a few brews in your bottle, keep it on...

Beer and Mountains: Mountain-Town Oktoberfest Celebrations Across The U.S.

Beer. Mountains. Two of the things that make our worlds go round. Whether enjoying a beer while watching the sun set at my campsite, or drowning away the pain of a nasty mountain- biking fall, beer and mountains are two of the most harmonious elements of the outdoors. I can't say for a fact that this simple truism is what inspired Germans to start guzzling barrels of beer in late September back in the 1800s,...

Backcountry Brew?

I've long coveted a way of bringing an India pale ale or lager on a long backpacking or biking trip. Unfortunately, the average backpack or pannier doesn't accomodate a six pack very well. That's what makes these new Beer On The Go pouches from the Beverage Pouch Group so damn hopeful. While bottles or cans are large and clunky, these seem like they could easily slip into an empty backpack compartment and provide a needed evening drink....

Beers on The Fly (Works for Soda too)

If you've ever lugged a big cooler down to a favorite campsite or fishing hole, you've probably dreamt of a better way to have your beer and drink it too. This handy Track Pack fills that niche. Strap your beers to your back and you're ready to ramble. Not only will it disperse the weight a lot less awkwardly than the straight-arm lug, you can pop a beer (or 2) out of the side and keep right...
