In an effort to keep our mountains blue, we have purchased our fair share of Igloo coolers in our day. Most of them have ended up getting left in a muddy parking lot after a tailgate or have withered away out on our deck in the blistering sun. For our next purchase, we’re looking at upgrading to this wooden cooler that happens to be far nicer than any red and white plastic number or simple Styrofoam supermarket offering. Available from Cold Creek Brewing’s Etsy shop, the rustic pine cooler keeps your cold ones cold and your parties classy.

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.
