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.

Aluminum-based antiperspirants can cause all kinds of health problems while natural deodorants like this one leave out the aluminum and contain ingredients that are actually good for you. And the herbal blend of Lavender, Sage, and Rosemary essential oils smells great and neutralizes odors. Jojoba oil is also part of the mix, a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory that's easy on sensitive underarm skin.
Move the party from inside to the great outdoors with ease thanks to the Alpina Mobile Beer Bar ($11,000). Mounted on four sturdy wheels, the stylish bar can be carted anywhere you need, and thanks to a specially-designed refrigeration system, it will keep your keg at its ideal temperature for hours without needing an electric current, so you can use it wherever you'd like. Other features include changeable side tops with an optional 31,000 BTU cooking top, 8Kg of ice storage, a gas cylinder compartment which can be used to house a spare keg if the cook top isn't in place, and an integrated tap system with compressor, CO2 cylinder, drip tray, and tap.
Carry your beer with brewmaster-like care in The Bräuler ($TBA). This virtually indestructible, lifetime-guaranteed growler is made from shatter-, chip-, and crack-proof food grade stainless steel, and features a wide, 1.75-inch mouth, a deep-thread cap to hold carbonation and freshness longer, a light-proof enclosure to keep away skunkiness, and a machined exterior collar that's compatible with multiple accessories, include a basic cap, handle, bail top, and even a CO2-chargeable draft cap system. Be careful when you take it to your local micro brewery for fill up — you might not get it back.
With its signature sophisticated, minimalist look, the Autobahn is undeniably part of the NOMOS family, but there's something about it that is more dynamic than the rest of the watches in the legendary brand's portfolio. That playful attitude is drawn from the designer's inspiration, created not only with the famous German highway in mind but also from the 22-minute Kraftwerk song of the same name. The theme is most evident on the dial — where smooth, rounded corners rise to the edge like a steep curve, only to dip at the recessed subdial just above the elongated 3-date window at the bottom — while a light gray luminous ring glows blue in low light, bringing to mind the dashboard of a car at night. It all sits beneath sapphire domed crystal, which is also found on the back of the watch, to showcase the in-house built caliber DUW6101 movement — used here for the first time with a date complication. Despite all the traffic, it remains quite thin and wears comfortably on the wrist and is finished with a waterproof blue-black textile strap tailor-made in France that features the NOMOS winged clasp that is polished by hand.

Perhaps the most iconic piece of clothing worn by James Bond in Skyfall, the traditional peacoat from then under-the-radar Alabama-based Billy Reid developed a story and cult status of its own. After learning Daniel Craig had purchased the same coat for himself prior to filming Skyfall, a small, in-house team at Billy Reid began an effort to have the coat placed organically in the upcoming Bond film. Successful in that mission, the peacoat went viral in the 007 community, selling out countless times, backordered for over 2 years, before finally being placed in the brand's core collection. Now available again in the same heavy 80% wool / 20% nylon blend as used in the film, it's not quite bulletproof, but you might feel that way slipping it on. Ideal for clandestine missions and polar vortexes alike.

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.
