Beer on a stick

beer on a stickWhy? Because we can.

And this is America, fool.

That's why.

Here is a link to the official Beer on a Stick site, where you can purchase this incredibly innovative yet strikingly simple accessory. It comes in different colors, too!

I also enjoy Beer on a Stick's motto:

"It's how you hold that keeps it cold."

Truer words are seldom spoken.

Also, if you look to the sidebar on the right side of this site, you'll see a new category called Drink-ology. I'm putting all the posts about weird drinking gizmos there.


Also, if one of you ends up buying Beer on a Stick (Evan, I'm thinking about you), I want you to take a photo of Beer on a Stick in action and send it to me.

does it come with a monocle and top hat?

lol. My dad made up something like this and won a prize!!!

…and you can hold a corndog in the other hand!

It probably does what it is supposed, but the execution is weird. It might feel natural if you spent the summer eating roasted marshmallows.

It doesn't exactly shout sophistication. If your out to impress, use of a beer stein or mug would seem to be the better way to go.
Somewhere about now we need objective opinion on how to drink from this and not look like a dork.

Calling Colleen!

I don't get it. I actually like my beer a little warm. Does that make me crazy?


If your crazy, this isn't the indicator.
Liking beer a little warm* by US standards may be a bit un conventional, but people I know who have to England used to complain about them serving room temperature. This may no longer be true as this recent.

* There is a point where the it is so cold, it almost doesn't which brand, as you lose true taste of it.

correction, should read
