Biographies have come a long way since we were all forced to read them in school. But as much as we like reading about the influential people of the past few decades, they don’t hold a candle to bourbon. Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit is a three hundred year tour de force of our favorite corn liquor, as told by Dane Huckelbridge. From Columbus to Congressional resolutions to it’s evolution, Huckelbridge tells a story of bourbon and its ties to America that is almost as fun to read as bourbon is to drink. Almost. It’s so good that Bill Samuels, Jr., president emeritus of Maker’s Mark and a fourth-generation Kentucky bourbon maker, considers it “a must read.”
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
