    MIRA Beer Growler Keeps Beer Cold for 24 Hours

    It feels like we cover a lot of beer growlers on this site, but barring some huge innovation in beer growler technology or an irresistibly stupid gimmick, this one might be the last. That’s because the MIRA Beer Growler appears to be the top of the line, not least because it can purportedly keep beer […]

    HefeWheaties Beer: The Breakfast of Champions

    I don’t know what’s going on over at Wheaties HQ, but someone must have decided that the brand’s commitment to physical fitness and health was only taking them so far, because now we have the officially licensed HefeWheaties beer from the Fulton craft brewery in Minnesota. HefeWheaties mercifully doesn’t have any actual Wheaties cereal in […]

    Angel’s Cup: An App for Coffee Obsessives

    There seem to be two types of coffee drinkers out there – the kind that is satisfied with their own brand and won’t feel right until they’ve had a cup of that specific stuff, and the more adventurous type who’s always on the prowl for new coffee flavors and sensations.

    Movieo: Sort Movies to Watch by Critical Consensus

    One day, all of us will die, and on our deathbed as we reflect on the events of our lives, I’m guessing that a lot of us will realize we spent way too much time trying to figure out what movie to watch. To avoid, or at least ameliorate, this fate, you might want to […]

    Bucardo Apple Watch Pocket Watch Attachments

    I’ve been wondering for a long time if the pocket watch was ever going to come back.  It seems like a natural fit for the smartphone era, and now there’s a company that’s whipped up a pocket watch accessory specifically for the Apple Watch. It’s Bucardo, now raising funds on Kickstarter. Bucardo has introduced a […]

    I didn’t know this until today, but apparently there’s entire subculture out there of people who are really into chewing ice (I don’t know why I’m surprised, but I am).

    Nebia: A New Kind of Shower (Video)

    Showers have been roughly the same for, I dunno, 75 years or so at least, with few innovations in the field really taking off in the mainstream. But evidently people are craving a new kind of shower experience that doesn’t cost a fortune either upfront or in wasted water, since the Nebia has already cracked […]

    Whiskey Island: Famous Prohibition Hideout For Sale

    The Prohibition era is one of the most romantic in American history, but even by that standard the story of Whiskey Island is pretty exciting. It’s a 3.1-acre island located in the southwestern end of the Thousand Islands of New York, and was used by bootleggers in the 20s and 30s as a way to […]

    ‘The Hateful Eight’ Teaser Finally Here (Video)

    For a long time, it seemed like Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight was never going to see the inside of a movie theater.
