Twinkies are coming back. After falling apart in bankruptcy, Hostess Brands Inc. has emerged as a new company, Hostess Brands LLC. Buried in this news is an interesting tidbit.
From the WSJ:
But Mr. Metropoulos and his son, Daren, the co-CEO of Pabst Brewing Co. who is also heading up the reborn Hostess’s marketing strategy, expressed confidence they would be able to find skilled, nonunion workers near the four plants, which are in areas with high unemployment.
That’s right, Beer Twinkies! Finally, we can stop trying to make our own.

Nobody like a flat beer, right? Well, shake things up with the Takara Tomy Sonic Hour. Pour a little water into the base to get it going, set your non-foamed beer on top and watch the action bubble forth. And to distract those that think an exaggerated head on a pint of beer is not a desirable thing, the beer gadget also features some groovy flashing lights to help set the mood.
For further proof that the future of beer drinking is full of cold air, the beer foam maker is part of the Beer Hour Series which also includes the Jokki Hour Sparkling Beer Mug and the Handy Beer Server, both of which serve similar purposes. Cheers!

Say that five times fast: “The Shakoozie Shakoolie Original Shower Beer Koozie.” Or better yet, sing it. In the shower. With a beer.
The product is the Shakoolie, the company is Shakoozie, LLC and you should accept no substitutes! Proof that there are solutions to all of mankind’s greatest issues, the Shakoolie is exactly what it sounds like it is: a shower koozie. And here you thought Velcro was just for shoes.
Want a Better Shower Beer? One night, we asked ourselves “what if you could just stick your beer to that shower wall?” It was glorious friends – one of those “aha” moments. We combined a simple foam koozie with industrial grade velcro to create shower beer awesomeness. Not only is your beer now hands free, it also stays ice cold in a steamy shower. Now, you’re probably thinking to yourself – “is it really that good?” Of course! The shower beer is the most relaxing thing on the planet. It’s great before going out. It’s great after work. Plus with Shakoolie, that hands free experience allows you to relax and enjoy your shower. We all love a good beer in the shower, and we’re just two guys who set out to make that experience better. So go ahead and pick up a Shakoolie today!

Oh noes! It’s Super Bowl week and you forgot to stock up on officially licensed merchandise for your football party! It’s the worst nightmare for any sports fan — even worse than running out of bacon-wrapped li’l smokies or having the port wine cheese ball fall on the floor. Simply put, one cannot have a Super Bowl party without having the proper gear.
Perhaps there is still time. Here is the Superbowl Super Bowl XLVII 47 Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers NFL Football Dueling Pint Glass to the rescue! Maybe.

Whether you say coozie or koozie, coosie or kozy, one thing matters most and that is if it keeps your beer cozy and kold, err, cold. Oh, and that it comes in a BBQ apron.

Claim your rightful title of grill master with this well-equipped apron kit! Apron features the classic Budweiser bowtie logo screen printed across the center chest and comes with a detachable bottle opener, padded oven mitt and towel.
