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.

Chill Puck. The Next Generation of Can Coolers

On the hot days of the early tailgating season, if your drinking pace slows down, you run the risk of having a warm beer at the end of your can.  The Chill Puck aims to combat this problem.  The Chill Puck consists of a freezable plastic disk and a Chill Band that holds it to your can, giving the can a sweet base of ice to sit upon.

As you can see from the pictures, the band helps keep the puck in contact with both major sizes of beer cans, the traditional and the slimmer Coors Light can.  These will also fit tightly into a standard collapsible coozie.

Freezing the pucks is a quick proposition.  Toss in the freezer overnight.  When you are ready for action, just press your can down into the puck and the Chill Band will grab hold.  I'd recommend having two of these bad boys, so you always have one in the cooler staying cold for its chance at glory.  If your beer isn't cold, don't expect a miracle.  This won't make it ice cold, but it WILL keep a cold beer cold longer.

The Chill Puck currently comes in white, gray, black and glow in the dark green.  For an additional fee, you can get a custom design of your very own.

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.
