Well-made products should last forever — that's what the guys bringing us the Stout Bottle Opener ($35) think. Weighing in at a quarter pound, cast from stainless steel, heat-treated, tumble-finished and bead-blasted, it should last a while. Uniquely-designed to open a bottle without bending the cap, it has a built in magnet that keeps caps from falling away. Stout ships with drywall anchors, wood and metal screws, machine screws, and an adhesive pad, so you can attach it to pretty much anything. All you need to bring is the beer; we recommend something malty.
If you looked at the title and thought "Chillsner? Sounds kinda like pilsner." then you're on the right track. The Chillsner ($30) is a new beer-chilling gadget that promises to keep your drink cold from the first beer to the last. To use it, you simply throw it in the freezer, and once it's good and cold, crack open your beer and put it down inside. Thanks to openings in the top, you can drink straight through it, or use it to chill your beer as you pour it into your favorite mug. Either way, it sure beats watering down your suds with ice.
There's an old adage that says you should never drink alone. With the Sasquatch Cocktail Shaker ($50), that shouldn't be a problem. This massive 110 oz. shaker is made from food-grade stainless steel, stands over 15" tall, and features a built-in strainer. Considering that 110 oz. is enough to make oversized drinks for over ten people, you'd better not be caught drinking alone with this thing — or people will think you're the one with the problem.
