Sprocket Growler. For beer enthusiasts, growlers bridge the gap between the tap and their table. The refillable half-gallon jugs allow brethren of the brew to roll up to their favorite brewery or artisanal shop, get a tap-fresh flagon, and enjoy their specialty pints of the good stuff in the comfort of their own homes. When poured days later, these hoppy suds taste just as crisp, and generously sized growlers help extend the amount of time drinkers can savor seasonal, limited edition, or just tap-only brews. Hand-crafted in Portland, one of the world’s biggest craft beer hubs, this growler is a vessel designed specifically for beer. The hand slip-cast stoneware is coated with food-safe glazes, and since the container is opaque, a sunlit room won’t threaten to skunk its tapped contents. The wide-mouth ceramic flip-top locks in flavor and fizz with an airtight rubber seal, and the sprocket-shaped handle offers a bold and practical way to get a grip on the good stuff .
Snowboard Bottle Opener. Whether a snowboarder spends their day hitting the slopes or just taming mountains of paperwork in the office, there’s no better way for him or her to chill than by cracking open a favorite drink, cozying up by the fire, and imagining future adventures.

Each unique piece is slightly weathered from catching extreme drifts in its past life.
