Bullets2Bandages .50 Caliber Bottle Opener

The guys at Bullets2Bandages recently reached out to me to see if I was interested in field testing one of their signature products, the .50 caliber bottle opener. Clearly, they look totally badass so I said, “Of course!” and prepared to launch an offensive on the arsenal of craft beer bottles waiting in the fridge.

Founded by a couple of former Navy bomb technicians, Bullets2Bandages is committed to donating at least 15% of its profits to veteran charities on an annual basis–and for the co-branded products featured on their website, they donate 40% from each sale to the respective charity.

Bullets2Bandages .50 Caliber Bottle OpenerThe bullet bottle openers are 100% made and sourced in the USA, from once-fired military grade .50 caliber® brass casings and demilitarized projectiles. They are available in a variety of finishes and can be customized with up to two lines of text, each with up to 25 characters. Mine came with a durable matte black powder coated finish, engraved with my web address. (BONUS!)

So anyway… on to the beer drinking! The opener feels nice, heavy in my hand. The notch cut in the side of the bullet fits snug against the cap and it comes off easily, with one swift pull. Pour, drink, repeat! Not only that, but my husband, a former Army man and avid hunter, is totally jealous… so there’s that.

If you’d like to snag one of these for yourself, head over to their website, www.bullets2bandages.org, and browse their selection of unique designs, or create your own. As a special bonus, enter promo code CHEERS10 for 10% off your order!

Got Suds? Swag Brewery Does!

A few weeks back, I came across this post on Aleheads about Swag Brewery, which is not a brewery at all but but actually a Craft Beer Outfitter, carrying a variety of craft beer related gifts and, well… swag!  (Who doesn’t like a little swag now and then, AMIRIGHT?)  So anyway, after reading that they make beer soap (with real hops!) I left a comment about how I’d like to try the Beer Soap with Lagunitas IPA … well, Max Arndt, Swag Brewery co-founder and obviously a nice guy, saw my comment on Aleheads and sent me an email asking if he could send me some!  (Of course he also asked if I wouldn’t mind plugging it on my site, that cheeky monkey…)

[Clearly, I told him I would gladly accept free swag in exchange for publicity on my site.  Any breweries out there want to send a sixer my way? Feel free.]

Beer Mine, Valentine.

Beer Mine, Valentine | a beer lovers gift guide.

Ahh Valentine’s Day… love it or hate it, it’s coming.  You know all the angles… For some, the day of love stirs up memories of scorned hearts and lonely nights, others loathe this “Hallmark Holiday” for giving flower shops an excuse to jack the price of long-stem roses.  Yet, for the seemingly few that actually enjoy Valentine’s Day, those lucky in love fools, it’s a day to celebrate love and affection with that special someone.  And although gift giving may not be the central theme of the day, it comes in a close second.  Each year, on February 14th, we bestow flowers, jewelry, and the iconic heart-shaped box of chocolates upon our sweethearts, in an effort to show how much we care.  But it’s not always easy to find that special gift, the one that speaks your true feelings, the one that really says “i love you.”  So I’m here to offer some help to all the lost and confused lovers out there.  If the one you love, loves beer… here’s a list of Valentine’s Day gifts for the beer lover in your life.
