The Rack by J. L. Lawson & Co.

J. L. Lawson & Co. is a third-generation machine shop out of Joshua Tree, CA, that specializes in high quality stainless steel, steel, and brass goods including rings, spinning tops, belt buckles, and bottle openers.

I recently purchased a belt from J. L. Lawson & Co., so I can attest to the quality, and you can get a feel for the craftsmanship by checking out this video, which shows the process they go through to make a single copy of The Rack, a cold rolled steel bottle opener & key rack:

If you’re looking for a bottle opener that will last a lifetime, then check out J. L. Lawson & Co., because it doesn’t get much better than a tool that was hand made by a single craftsman, right here in the US of A.

Hoppy Press Makes Art For Homebrewers

Hoppy Press

Hoppy Press is a new online store that’s working on a unique line of beer art for homebrewers, beer lovers, and anyone with an appreciation of fine craft brews.

Hoppy Press was founded by Paul Finn and Greg Elizondo, two homebrewers, beer lovers and software craftsmen working out of the beautiful seacoast region of New Hampshire, USA.

Being homebrewers, they are passionate about quality ingredients and creating the best product possible, so when they started looking for beer art that represented the homebrewer community and found only cheap glossy posters that were mass-produced, they decided to take matters into their own hands, and Hoppy Press was born.

Hoppy Press makes their art using only the highest quality printing methods, and all screen prints are hand-pulled using only environmentally friendly, soy-based inks. Plus, the rich, heavy paper they use is manufactured in the USA using 100% renewable electricity.

Their debut is a limited edition print, called Brew Debut, which features bold colors, contrast and detail that bring the word “Brew!” to life with a large, 18″ x 24″ design.

Though this special first edition is limited to just one-hundred prints, you can sign up for their newsletter to receive exclusive sneak peeks and upcoming special offers.

As an added bonus, each print is packed by hand and ships for free, so you’re not getting nickel and dimmed with added costs. Just another example of why Paul and Greg have something special going here. If you’re looking for something to spruce up the walls of your home or bar, then definitely check out what Hoppy Press has on offer.

Cuppow: Turn A Canning Jar Into A Travel Mug

Cuppow

The Cuppow is a replacement lid for canning jars that turns them into spill-free travel mugs.

Cuppow Drinker

Made in the USA using BPA free plastic, it’s dishwasher safe, and 100% recyclable if you decide to get rid of it.

According to Joshua and Aaron, the inventers of Cuppow,

The canning jar already makes an awesome platform for a travel mug: it’s easy to clean, made of heat-resistant glass, cheap, durable, and when sealed it doesn’t leak. The only problem is that with their large openings, canning jars are not great for spill-free sipping while on the move. So we adapted it – made a new lid that lets us drink like a boss from virtually any wide-mouth canning jar. It’s a simple eco-friendly alternative to poor-performing and messy disposable hot cups, and over-built and expensive travel mugs.

You can get the Cuppow for just $7.99, directly from their site.
