Beer Drinker

BrüMate Hopsulator Trio Prevent the crime of warm beer with this patented 3-in-1 beer can cooler. Its 20 times colder than most can coolers and comes with a freezable adapter to accommodate a 12-oz. can. Or use it as a tumbler. Its leakproof lid prevents spills. $29.99, brumate.com

Patagonia Provisions and Dogfish Head Kernza Pils Rather than a specific pilsner style, Kernza is a perennial grain, pioneered by The Land Institute in Salina, Kansas. It develops roots that can grow up to 12 feet long. These stretching root systems improve soil structure while protecting it from erosion. Turns out, this special regenerative crop also makes delicious beer. A collaboration between Patagonia Provisions and Dogfish Head, the Kernza Pils is brewed with Contessa hops. It tastes crisp and snappy, with a lovely nuttiness added by the namesake grain. $13.99, see patagoniaprovisions.com for distribution

Yeti Hopper Soft Cooler Any weekend adventurer would appreciate this portable cooler protected by a durable fabric shell.
