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!

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
