No beer is impervious to light — even if the brewery is right down the street. The Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Growler ($50) protects your suds with double-walled stainless steel construction and a BPA-free cap, ensuring that it gets from point A to point B without a flavor transformation. The 64 oz. capacity? Just icing on the cake. [Scouted by Andrew]
Carnival-style labeling meets microbrew mastery in these Coney Island Craft Lagers ($TBA). These award-winning beers include a traditional Lager, Mermaid Pilsner, Albino Python white lager, Sword Swallower IPA-style lager, and the seasonal Barrel-Aged Human Blockhead American bock. They're worth picking up if for no reason than the labels themselves (and the 10.83% ABV in the Blockhead).
While it's not as dangerous as the name might seem, Death Wish Coffee ($20) is serious stuff. Two times as powerful as your typical coffe shop cup, it's made from beans with an especially strong amount of caffeine, roasted to a medium-dark level for a strong flavor, and then ground to a specific level for maximum potency.
It's true that moonshine isn't the first thing we'd think of mixing with wine, but one taste of Spodee ($9) and you'll be a believer. Based upon the Depression Era drink of the same name, this 36 proof drink contains a delightful mixture of wine, herbs, spices, fruits, and 'shine, all packaged in an appropriately down-market milk bottle container. Drink it straight, or mix it with cola or OJ for a full-on cocktail.
Celebrate the history of fine Kentucky bourbon with some Jim Beam 1795 (€140; roughly $175). This eight-year-old, 95 proof bourbon is sourced from the top floor of a five-floor rack house, and is limited to just 200 flint glass bottles. The real kicker? It's only available in one place — the Heinemann Duty Free store in Frankfurt's (yes, the German one) T1B Schengen lounge — so you'd better be prepared to travel if you want to get your hands on a bottle.
