Drinking Gear

It never seizes to amaze me at all the ways people have of drinking while tailgating. While there are many accessories available, here are 3 items that I think are pretty cool, unique, and a great addition to your tailgating setup. 

  • BeerSquad Beer Tower – A fun accessory to any party, this tower holds up to 7 pints of beer on tap and keeps them cool with an integrated ice tube. The tube will help keep your beer cold for hours and is large enough to fit standard sized ice cubes for quick refills. Another option is to fill the tube with water and freeze the entire tube full of ice. The base is sturdy enough to ensure the tower never tips while its pouring beer. Rounding out these great features is the ability to easily clean the tower. This is a great gift idea for any beer drinker.

  • GoPong Das Shotten Ski – Gather yourself and 3 friends to socialize with your favorite shot to jumpstart your day of tailgating. The Das Shotten Ski offers 4 shot cup holes for little shot cups and is collapsible, which ensures easy transport from place to place. I can speak from personal experience that a shot ski is a great conversation starter and something that everyone wants to try at least once!

  • TrailKeg Half Gallon Growler – This awesome growler is great for all the beer drinkers out there who want to have their favorite local craft beer from the tap at the tailgating lot. The TrailKeg is a vacuum insulated and pressurized growler that helps keep your beer cold for up to 24 hours and your hot drinks warm for up to 12 hours. It also does a great job of keeping your beer well carbonated for weeks. And not only can you use it for beer, you can fill it with nitro coffee, homebrews, and other cocktails. With a dual stage regulator for perfect pours, stainless steel build, and a chrome tap that can be removed during transport, this growler is one of the more durable and versatile systems available.

What I like about FANCHEST and their gift boxes are the variety of types that are available. From a basic offering, a box geared towards babies, father’s day, and signed memorabilia boxes, they cater to a wide sports audience. For more information on these, I’ve written up a product review and created an unboxing video for you to check out if you’re curious to see how these boxes work and the kinds of items that come in them.
