This is no ordinary koozie. Created for travel and the outdoors, the Brümate Hopsulator Bott'l Insulated Bottle Cooler is built tough with triple-insulated stainless steel to keep your beer 20 times colder than standard neoprene while standing up to even the most rugged drinking terrain. A locking mechanism holds the bottle tight — ensuring your beer stays in the cooler and doesn’t land on the ground. Bundle up a bunch of the 21 different colors to get a great multi-person gift package for your family or beach house crew.

Sometimes, all you want is a cold beer at the end of a long day (or the start-we’re not judging) but you forgot to throw some in the beer fridge. Never fear, the Cooper Cooler is here to quickly cool your beverages down from 77 to 42 degrees. Simply add water and ice and you’ll be in business in one minute for a can, 3.5 minutes for a 12 oz. bottle and six minutes for 750ml of wine. The cooler chills by rotating the container while spraying it with ice water then shuts off automatically when it’s ready. The extra setting takes the temp down to 34 degrees — though we don’t recommend drinking beer colder than 38 degrees — and the cooler includes a car adapter so you can bring the party with you.

A super fun take on Monopoly, this is for beer capitalists who want to get their (board) game on. Players follow Monopoly rules to circumnavigate the board of real OG craft brewery brands (think Alaskan Brewing, Full Sail Brewery, and Victory Brewing) and collect rent on properties they’ve bought and developed with taprooms and production plants. It’s easy to get sentimental over old-time favorites, and the laughs occur easily with cards and board spaces that pose beer trivia questions and award (paper) cash prizes for singing four verses of “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.”
