Kebo Bottle Opener

Kebo

The Kebo bottle opener (derived from “Bottle Key”) was inspired by the Theodore Law bottle opener from the 1930s, and is designed to open bottles one-handed.

It’s also cast of stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish, so it makes a great gift for anyone you know that is still in search of the perfect bottle opener.

Beer-y Christmas

Beer-y Christmas

If you’re like me, you’re still a few days away from cleaning up this year’s Christmas, which means that next year’s Christmas hasn’t even entered your thought process yet. For those who like to get a jump start on the gift giving however, an interesting product called Beer-y Christmas has just hit the scene, and looks like an interesting way to celebrate the holidays next year:

To use the Beer-y Christmas, just fill it with 12 of your favorite brews, then open the appropriate tab on the appropriate day, and enjoy:

If you’re feeling especially giving, you could even load it up with 12 of your favorite beers, and then give the box to a special someone so they can unwrap and enjoy a new beer each day of the 12 Days of Christmas.

If that doesn’t put them in the holiday spirit, nothing will!

Beer: A Genuine Collection of Cans

Beer Can Book

Beer: A Genuine Collection of Cans is a coffee table book that features beer cans ranging from the iconic to the obscure to the downright bizarre.

From long-forgotten brews to classic brands that have changed their look but never gone out of style, Beer offers a peek into the last century of beer culture, exploring what we drank, how we drank it, and why we picked it off the shelf.

The book actually started as a Flickr Set, when on a whim, Lance Wilson and Dan Becker started shooting Dan’s stepdad’s beer can collection, and uploading them to the photo sharing site. The response was greater than they had anticipated, with more than 180,000 pageviews in just a few months.

Realizing they were on to something, the pair re-shot the entire collection, more than 1,400 in all, and then spent the following year curating, writing, editing and designing the book.

The result is an impressive look at the history of the beer can, both from a design perspective, and as a historical record of beer brands and styles that have come and gone over the years, and would make the perfect gift for the beer geek in your life.
