Benjamin Franklin is good for more than poppin’ bottles. In fact, he was a much bigger fan of the hoppy variety of liquor. So big a fan that he once went on record saying, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” And you thought he was only good for electricity. We agree with Franklin which is why we’re never more than a few feet from a cold one and that means having a bottle opener handy at all times. The CXXVI Sea Rope Bottle Opener performs all necessary beer related functions admirably and it also looks like the kind of opener your grandfather would have carried during his Navy days. Each one is individually forged and hand hammered on an anvil five times older than you. In this instance, the 6 1/2″ is adequate and the sturdiness is second to none.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
