B.O.B (Bottle Opener Board) Cutting Board & Bottle Opener

Here's another great kickstarter project for the tailgater who likes to have multi-purpose items.


The Bottle Opener Board, or BOB, is a cutting board product by Pablo Baquero and Josh Lochner.  Made of sustainable bamboo, the BOB comes in two sizes: the standard size and the travel size.  Both would work great in a tailgating situation where space can come at a premium when packing up a vehicle.

 Here's how the BOB came to be.

B.O.B was dreamt up over 2 years ago at one of our frequent visits to Chipotle. We ordered beer to complement our lunch, but unfortunately they were still capped. Josh quickly reached for a beer and popped the top off with the tray the food was on. Pablo was intrigued by this, but knew there had to be a better way. The rest of lunch consisted of ideation with high-tech napkin sketches. We don’t know if it was the delicious burritos or the cold beer, but something just clicked that day and from then on we both knew the Bottle Opener Board must become a reality.

First thing was first, we searched the web for days to see if anyone has ever attempted to merge a cutting board and bottle opener into one. What we found were sandals, sunglass and other novelty items that had built in openers, but nothing that merited practical everyday use. Next came the design process, our first concept featured a bottle opener that was removable from the cutting board itself. This was a failure as it scarified the strength of the cutting surface and quickly found that this would be impossible to manufacture in bamboo. Our next concept was closer to the bottle opener you see today, consisting of a metal plate that would be mended between the layers of bamboo and secured in place with fasteners. What we ended up with was clunky and not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Months and multiple concepts later we added another material to our line-up, ABS plastic. With this we were able to finally design the bottle opener around the board, while having a minimal impact on functionality and integrity. The bottle opener component consists of three parts, the two outer rings and metal insert. Both rings thread together, clamping the metal insert in place (like an Oreo). Since we designed the outer rings to thread into each other it only requires a tiny drop of adhesive to keep them from coming undone. This design allowed us to place the opener virtually anywhere. The results are simply extraordinary, especially when compared to other cutting boards on the market.


So check out the BOB board on Kickstarter campaign, which runs until Sunday, March 30th:

Bevometer, The Can Cooler That Counts

Have you ever wondered just how many cold ones you've tipped at the tailgating lots?  I know I have, and now there is a solution to this age old question.  Bevometer!

The Bevometer is currently in a Kickstarter campaign (click here!) with hopes to launch spring of 2014.

Created by Justin and Jenny Richmond, the Bevometer does 3 things:

  • Keeps drinks cold
  • Counts drinks "this time"
  • Counts drinks over the lifetime of the koozie

The inspiration for this project came from Justin's father.  Noticing the old ancient koozie he had, conversation turned to how many drinks has been in it over the lifetime, and that sparked a fire to create the Bevometer.

As you can see, the inspiration and the prototypes that came from it.  Progress indeed!

This is one of those products that just screams awesome.  Having a way to see how many shastas have been had, reminising about all the good times.  Can't beat it!  Join in while you can.  The campaign runs until 10:30 AM on March 15.  You can get it plain, or with the Bevometer logo on it.  Plans have been made to allow custom logos as well.

Can Grips and Bottle Grips

The Can Grip and the Bottle Grip are a pair of tools that are a great addition to anyone's tailgating arsenal.  The grips snap solidly onto either a can or a bottle, and keeps your hand warm and your brew cold.

These are made out of plastic, and when they click onto the can or the bottle, you can feel how solid the mount is.  There is no concern about spilling at all. 

Both the can and bottle handles gives you a firm grip, and feels like a well built mug handle in your hand.

They both come in a number of colors.  The can grip also comes in 12, 16, and 24 oz, as well as the european 330ml.

The Ultimate Beer Shotgun Opener Keychain

Here is the ultimate beer shotgun opener keychain.  This 3 in 1 device is great for opening bottles, opening can tabs, and putting a nice shotgun hole into a beer can.

Click for larger viewOpening a bottle was not a problem, nor was opening a can.  The one concern I had was using the shotgun portion of it on harder cans, like Heineken, but that worked great too.  You can store this easily on your keychain.
