Sometimes the original is the best. Only modestly updated since it's debut, the Waring Professional Bar Blender ($95) is a true classic, with workhorse sensibilities. Available in stainless steel or bright copper, the Waring features a 40-oz. glass mixing jar, a powerful 390-watt motor, high and low speeds, a center cap that doubles as a 1-oz measure, and a heavy-duty build that will keep it running for years to come.
Enjoy the perfect pint with the Samuel Adams Boston Lager Glass ($30/set of 4 glasses). Designed with the help of sensory experts, the pint glass provides optimum full-flavored taste of Sam Adams (or any other brew) thanks to some unique features — a bead inside the rim creates turbulence to release flavor and aromas; a lip on the glass places the beer on the front of the tongue where sweetness is tasted; a laser etching on the bottom creates bubbles for constant aroma release; thinner walls and round shape maintain proper beer temperature longer; and a narrow grip reduces exposure from the heat of your hand.
