Willway-Forge-Blacksmith-Bottle-Openers

We literally had no idea that there were still practicing blacksmiths around. Something about putting on something a little less comfortable like a heavy duty apron and getting down to the business of hammering raw materials into something useful has always appealed to us, but we were never quite talented enough to make it happen. At Willway Forge, that isn’t an issue. Using the standard tools of the trade (we’re not blacksmiths, but we’re assuming it’s an anvil, hammers and a really, really hot fire), Etsy seller Willway Forge creates custom, one-of-a-kind bottle openers with everything from railroad spikes to socket wrenches. Available in styles ranging from geometric patterns to dragons, these openers will make you want to buy more beer just so you can use them.

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.
