Nine Ladies Dancing

Wood-aged beers are awesome. In fact, many of the most sought after brews in existence are barrel-aged imperial stouts. With the Paglione Oak Bottle, you can imbue any beverage you drink with the smoky, woody flavor of a barrel.

The Oak Bottle recently cleared its Kickstarter goal by a muscular $80,000, and it couldn't be simpler to use. You pour your favorite beverage into the Oak Bottle, let it sit for 24-48 hours and voila! It imparts its oaky flavor into whatever drink you poured into it. Now that’s good wood.

Eight Maids a-Milking

Some wardrobe options and clothing accessories are made for hiding beer. Jackets? Their numerous pockets are perfect crannies for surreptitious swilling. Women’s handbags? Even though she can’t find anything in there, you know exactly where you hid that spare brewski.

However, heading into the office with a hidden beer can be a taxing endeavor. Why not hide it in plain sight with The Beer Tie!

While its website mentions tailgates, barbecues and sporting events as the perfect venues for The Beer Tie, donning one on the job might be the perfect use for it. A blend of both style and substance, The Beer Tie has something for every tie-wearing beer fanatic.

Seven Swans a-Swimming

Everybody loves brackets. No, I’m not talking about the blocky piece of punctuation, but rather the stylish and hugely popular way of organizing tournaments. The 64-entrant bracket has been most successfully employed by NCAA Basketball’s March Madness tournament, but what if there was a fun way to transfer this extravaganza to drinking and rating beer?

Luckily for you, there is! The Brew Bracket (whose slogan “Two Hands. Two Tasting Glasses” pretty much sums up their ethos) was recently kicked on Kickstarter and units should begin shipping in December – just in time for the holidays.

The Bracket comes complete with everything you’ll need to start your own craft beer tasting bracket party, including pitchers, tasting glasses and a helpful “host guide” for those pioneering drinkers who want to find the best beer via good old-fashioned competition.
