If it wasn’t crystal clear, we’re pretty big beer guys over here at Cool Material. That’s why we launched a new publication a few months back called Hoppist, which is an email newsletter devoted to beer news and stories. If you’re a beer lover, we think you’ll dig it, and to give you extra incentive to sign up, we’re giving away a bottle of 2017 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout before it even hits shelves. That’s right, sign up for Hoppist and you’ll automatically be entered to win this year’s BCBS before its release on Black Friday. We’ll also toss in a special 2017 Bourbon County Stout collectors glass so you can achieve #properglassware status. All you have to do to enter is sign up for Hoppist before 10/26/17. Then you can read an issue of Hoppist while sipping one of the most incredible stouts ever brewed. Cheers!

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
