Looking to keep your beer stash cold -- we're not talking silly label on a can cold, but nearly freezing the refreshing beverages inside cold? The Cold Cavern Beer Froster ($900) is a spectacular way to do so. Based on a gorgeous stainless steel Summit freezer, the Beer Froster adds a thermostat to let you ensure that up to 120+ of your favorite beers stay at the arctic temperature of 24ºF, or right on the edge of freezing and exploding all over the place.
We like high end knives, and we love good wine. Both those interests have converged in the Code 38 Stealth Pro Wine Knife ($410). Featuring a variety of textures, vaporized titanium-based finishes, a grooved precision spiral, bottle opener, and foil-slicing blade, it's certainly not the cheapest bar tool we've seen, but it is one of the most stylish.
Truly wireless with a handcrafted tortoise brown acetate body, the MW07 earphones from Master & Dynamic strike an ideal blend of convenience, performance, and style.

They last for 3.5 hours, charge inside the included stainless steel carrying case for a total of 14 hours of battery life, and have an IPX 4 splashproof rating, making them capable, although unlikely, gym companions.

Foams and creams are great if you're going for a the clean shaven look, but your more modern face trim might require Baxter of California's Beard Line-Up Shave Gel. The clear, non-foaming gel allows you to see exactly where you're cutting, making your shaving routine a little less taxing. Perhaps more impressive is that this gel can be used with or without water, making it ideal to store in a travel Dopp kit when you might need to shave in a pinch. Aloe Vera, eucalyptus oil, and Vitamins C & E ensure your mug remains hydrated and irritation-free during your shave as well as after it's done. Cooling mint refreshes once you've finished that work-of-art-of-a-beard on your face.

Interested in getting into home brewing but put off by the complex, lengthy process? The WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery (NZ$5,700; roughly $4,500) was made for you. By keeping the entire brewing process inside a single unit, the WilliamsWarn is able to carbonate the beer during the first day of fermentation, keep it the correct temperature throughout the process, remove sediment, clarify the beer, and keep it pressurized while you enjoy ice cold beer directly from the built-in tap. Time from start to drink? One week, or as much time as it will take to recover from the hangover caused by the last batch.
In case you didn't know, wine's flavor can be seriously impacted by temperature — drinking it at just the right time can provide flavors and smells that are missing at others. But it's not exactly easy to keep tabs on the temperature inside the bottle. Unless you have a Vignon Wine Thermometer ($40). This plastic and metal band snaps securely around the bottle, giving you an accurate temperature reading in just a few minutes.
