Huski Chills Your Brew

Huski Beverage Chiller

For those of us who like to nurse our brews, but not after they turn room temperature, we cannot wait for this prototype to come on the market. Invented by 22 year-old Kent Hodgson, the Huski Beverage Chiller can ice up your beer in a few seconds with CO2 and costs about 7 cents apiece. At about the size of a pencil, it forgoes the need to pre-chill drinks or carry around extra ice. It works with plastic cooling cells in a dock that houses the carbon dioxide that expands and becomes dry ice. Hodgson is hoping that his dream will become about a $50.00 realty in time.

Beerbelly

Once you become a male over the age of 30, if you enjoy a good brew often, chances are you will develop a larger midriff to show your indulgence. Get a head start with the Beerbelly, an 80 oz. polyurethane “bladder” and an insulated neoprene “sling” that you can strap on before the next scrimmage. The gadget was devised by 3 men who wanted to sneak beer into a movie theatres and ball games. The device will hold hot or cold drinks and one size will strap on up to 40-inch waists. You can either pour the liquid into a cup or drink from the tube/nozzle. The Beerbelly carries a MSRP $39.95 and the company also offers a Winerack for the ladies.

BevyProtect your iPod shuffle with this original Bevy case that also allows you to wrap up your earbuds, carry your keys and, after removal of your PMP, pop the top off a brew.

Blue Collar Comedy TourJust what the world needs: another beer. Git-R-Done beer had been launched by SchillingBridge Winery& MicroBrewery, a company in the small town where Larry the Cable Guy grew up. Git-R-Done is a light beer with plenty of flavor and body, according to brewery spokespeople. The Cable Guy visited the brewery in July 2005 to approve these beer efforts. The phrase “git-r-done” is a catchphrase popularized by the comedian, who uses a particular brand of “redneck” comedy and jokes to get his funny messages across. Larry the Cable guy first shot to stardom thanks to The Blue Collar Comedy Tour, a movie as well as a series on cable‘s Comedy Central, but it’s his catchphrase that everyone remembers and repeats - endlessly.
