Imagine a world where your boss gave you free beer… where you filled your mug with ale that flowed from the public fountain… and where a good brew was made accessible to all (provided they are responsible drinkers of legal age, of course). That’s the world that Henry Weinhard — a true craft beer pioneer — envisioned, and his legend lives on today in his simple, uncomplicated brews.

Henry Weinhard began brewing back in 1856, creating his own brewing company in Portland, Oregon. That bit about free beer on the job? Totally true for his employees! And he made a dead serious offer to pump beer into the city’s public fountain, but Portland officials declined. His philosophy, that everyone has the right to good beer, rang true in everything he did.

Today, Henry may not be with us, but his spirit lives on every time someone takes a swig of one his craft beers. Whether you prefer Woodland Pass IPA, Redwood Flats Amber or the Private Reserve brews, you can expect a consistently satisfying beer drinking experience every time.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
