If you’re a fan of beer, chances are that, at some point, you will have or are going to receive some beer over the holiday season. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, we love when we get booze as gifts (any of these bottles would be amazing, if you want to send a belated holiday gift to us). Another thing we enjoy getting from time to time are beer accessories. Whether they are light-hearted and fun, or serve a serious purpose, long after the beers have been consumed.
Below, you’ll find a little bit of both: some ridiculous ways to carry your beer around and some items that you can use time and time again.
Toast Leather Pint Glass Cuff – $24-plus
When you’re at a party with a ton of people, sometimes it may be hard to keep track of which cup is yours. Sure, you can do the old Solo cup and a Sharpie method, but we’re older now, so we should be of the mind of classing it up a bit. That’s where Toast’s leather pint glass cuffs come in. These hand-stitched leather wraps fit fourteen and sixteen-ounce glasses and come in a variety of colors. For a little extra, you can even get a pre-existing design, or you can go all out and add your own custom illustration.
Stubby Strip Original – $15
Carrying beer from one place to another can be annoying, especially if you and all of your friends have all brought different craft beers. This is a problem no more with the Stubby Strip. Perhaps the most laugh-inducing name on this list, the Stubby Strip allows you to carry up to seven bottles or cans at time. Simply slip them in and wrap them up. From there, all you need to do is grab the handle and go.
Beer Belly Stealth Drinking System – $30
Ever wanted to be able to drink what you want, when you want, and look like you have the perfect dad bod without having to try? Enter the Beer Belly. Like the beer can helmet of yore, the Beer Belly lets you load up on your favorite beverage (Who says you need to stop at beer? Why not an Old Fashioned belly?) and sneak it into wherever you’re going. Sure, you’ll probably look like an slob who has distinct opinions on who shot first — it was Han — but who cares? You won’t have to pay $55 for a large Coke when you go see the newest Star Wars. (They also have the Wine Rack for women, so there’s that.)
Kinkajou Bottle Cutter – $50
You can’t use this one to drink, but you need to drink to be able to use this accessory (this seems like the best kind of problem to have). The Kinkajou Bottle Cutter turns your normal bottles into glassware by slicing through them. Not only do you get to build out your collection with any number of cool looking beer-bottles-turned-glasses, but it also cuts down on the amount in your recycling bin (which will cut down on the amount of passive aggressive texts you’ll get from your neighbor about your “drinking problem”). Just remember to sand it when you’re done.
