Corkcicle’s ever expanding lineup of drink accessories grows on with the Corkcicle Tumbler. Looking to dethrone whatever vessel you’re currently lugging your coffee/beer/tea/etc around in, this tumbler is made of stainless steel and features triple insulation to keep your beverage cold for 9+ hours and hot for over 3, a non-slip bottom, a shatterproof drink-through lid, and flat sides for easier grip. Available in both 16 oz. and 24 oz. variants in a variety of colors including brushed copper and steel.

Flask meets Thermos meets premium materials, the Kole Thermal Flask is as practical a way to carry around a few shots of liquor or espresso. Instead of the typical flattened shape, Kole bears a unique cylindrical design made of a stainless steel core surrounded by genuine oak, the former hand polished and the latter sealed with several coats of lacquer for a stunning finish. Its cap also doubles as a cup, making for a classier image over drinking straight from the flask, and each Kole includes a stainless steel funnel for easy, mess-free filling.

Breakfast beer has a whole new meaning. Introducing 21st Amendment’s Toaster Pastry, an India Red Ale that’s crafted with a Pop-Tarts-inspired taste and, perhaps not coincidentally, brewed in a former Kellogg’s factory. Interestingly, the 7.6% beer also boasts an IBU of 74 to balance the sweet with some bitter, though with our extensive Pop-Tarts experience we’re pretty certain the former will prevail. Each can also contains 19.2 oz of the brew, more than enough to sip through a pack or two of the actual snack for a particularly sweet breakfast (or any meal, really).
Arriving on August 29th. Check it out then at 21st Amendment – $TBA
The Japanese are exceedingly good at making things. Little did we know cast iron goods were amongst them. The Iwachu Cast Iron Omelette Pan, for instance, is handcrafted in Morioka, Japan using traditional nambu tekki techniques that result in a durable, aesthetically unique pan that’s also both low stick and highly ergonomic. Curved sides make flipping omelettes easy, though the pan is versatile enough to fry up eggs differently, or for unrelated foods like bacon, sausage, french toast, stir fry, and more.

Make insane sandwiches over an open fire with the Poler Sandwich Maker. This cast iron sandwich-press-on-a-pole fits one sandwich, so go crazy with grilled cheeses, tuna melts, ham and cheeses, or whatever else your stomach desires. It’s a good change from the usual all-too-easy canned goods.

Think of the MIRA Insulated Beer Growler like a giant Thermos that was designed specifically for lugging around beer — lots of it. Made of double walled vacuum insulated 18/8 stainless steel, this 64 oz. growler will keep your beverage ice cold for a solid 24 hours, though it’ll even keep a boatload of coffee or cocoa piping hot for half that time as well. A wide mouth spout fills and pours easily, and it goes without saying that it’ll handily outperform standard glass growlers when it comes to blocking out UV light to preserve your beer’s intended taste. It’ll even spare you the need for ice and a cooler when hitting the beach or a tailgate.

Finding the perfect coffee mug isn’t easy. Plastic eventually imbues with flavor, bare glass and porcelain are too fragile to be practical, and other materials don’t feel great on your lips. The Cortiça Cork Coffee Mug was created to address just these issues. As natural as a mug can hope to get, Cortiça is crafted from porcelain and wrapped up in a removable cork sheath that both insulates and protects the stoneware below. And if you need to head out, an inset BPA-free plastic lid locks in your drink, retracting in a manner that keeps it from ever actually touching your mouth.

Compact, lightweight, and extremely portable, the Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill is a solid workhorse for grilling at tailgates or at camping. The grill’s triple-plated stainless steel legs — which double as a lid lock when closed — pivot open to prop up the grill’s enamel-coated steel cooking box. It offers 160 square inches of cooking surface, large enough to fit up to four medium sized steaks, more burgers, or a ton of hot dogs. And when you’re done, shut all four air vents to suffocate the fire, lock the lid, and lug it out with its glass-reinforced nylon handle.

Never lose your can again, no matter your levels of intoxication, with ThinkGeek’s Nite Ops Can Cooler. This ABS plastic beer koozie fits standard 12 oz. beverage cans, adding both a tactical flair as well as a fully functional LED flashlight that turns on with a twist of the Can Cooler’s base. Notably missing is a Picatinny or any sort of MOLLE webbing, but for only ten bucks we’ll let it slide.

Drinking on planes is a must. While you may already be familiar with their old fashioned kit, now the Carry On Cocktail Kit moniker has expanded, adding the Moscow mule to their repertoire.

Just add in-flight vodka, club soda, and a slice of lime.
