We love our craft beers here at Uncrate, but there's nothing quite like tasting something you cooked brewed yourself. Brooklyn Brew Shop Kits ($30) offer everything you need to make your own ale, including a one gallon glass jug, an airlock, tubing clamp, thermometer, and more, all designed to be displayed with pride — unlike that Mr. Beer kit you picked up at Big Lots oh so many years ago.
Is the trip from the couch to the fridge hindering your binge drinking ambitions? Check out the BrewTender ($60). This tabletop marvel keeps up to 80 ounces of your favorite brew cold, thanks to a central removable ice chamber that's separated from the beer to stop the watering down process in its tracks. A bar-style front tap keeps things flowing, while an internal illumination system lights your way when the sun goes down.
Pour like a pro with the Creamer Action Chrome Faucet Head ($21). The standard-looking keg faucet consistently delivers draft brews with a rich and creamy head. Pull the lever forward for beer, then push back to top it off with the foam.
There's something extra cool about furniture born of reused parts from airplanes, and the MotoArt 747 Cowling Bar ($TBA) is a prime example. Made from an authentic cowling that once covered the Pratt & Whitney jet engine of a Boeing 747, this unique bar features a half-inch tempered glass counter, mirror-polished aluminum braces, a hardwood bar counter, bottom shelves for storage, and more. It's a perfect match for Ejection Chair barstools, and while pricing varies, expect it to be more than a R/C 747, but less than the real thing. [Thanks, Clay]
Keep your drunks houseguests amused with the Tavern Puzzle Collection ($100). This set of four classic games — the basic Bottoms Up, intermediate Clef Hanger, difficult U-Turn, and "complex" Long Island Catch — is made from 6mm steel, including some wooden beads, with the goal of each to remove the metal ring from inside the puzzle. Includes a 4-hook perch for displaying the games, and a solution sheet for the truly wasted/lazy.
