2014 Beer Gear of the Year Coming to Reno’s CANFEST Festival

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

We cannot wait for CANFEST!canfest-peppermill-resort-reno

There’s been a lot of hype building around Reno’s upcoming International Canned Beer Festival, and Tahoe Mountain Sports is excited to be the only outdoor retailer sponsoring the event. We aren’t just looking forward to having over one hundred tasty brews to sample – although, that’s a bit of our motivation. We’re bringing out some really cool products that help beer lovers enjoy their favorite drinks outdoors! We’re calling it Beer Gear, and we’ll have several forms on display at CANFEST. Surely some will be put to personal use during the event, and we will happily give demonstrations, but here comes the best part…brace yourselves…

 

Anyone who attends CANFEST will qualify to WIN BEER GEAR

 

What is this Beer Gear we speak of? Here’s a peak at four of the outdoor products for beer lovers we’ll be showing off:

 
Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Bottles

hydroflask-21ozhydroflask-growlerHydro Flask makes top-quality, double-walled stainless steel bottles that come with a lifetime warranty. Literally. They “guarantee every Hydro Flask against manufacturer defects for one hundred years or one lifetime, whichever comes first!”  From the wide mouth Hydro Flask 64-oz Growler to the flip-lid, 18-oz to 21-oz Hydro Flask bottles, we’ve got what you need to keep your hot liquids hot and your cold liquids cold.

 

 

 

Oakley Jupiter Cooler Backpack

oakley-jupiter-beer-cooler-backpackoakley-cooler-backpackThis versatile Oakley backpack stores up to eight cans in a separate, insulated compartment. Compared to other cooler backpacks we’ve used, the Jupiter is actually quite comfortable with the added weight of beer cans. Stash all your goodies for a day at the beach, a concert at the park, or a hike to your favorite alpine lake. Upon arrival, unzip the cooler pocket and grab yourself a cold one…or three.

 

 

 

 

Klean Kanteen 16-oz Stainless Steel Pint Glass

klean-kanteen-stainless-steel-pint-glassklean-kanteen-pint-glass-bottomNobody likes warm beer. Well, maybe somebody, but we don’t associate with that person. We drink our favorite craft beers out of stainless steel pint glasses so they stay cold longer. Longer than a can or bottle will keep it, and much longer than a glass pint glass or a red keg cup. They’re super lightweight, safer than drinking from plastic, and they make a cool “ting” sound when you drum on them with your fingernails after a couple tasty brews.

 

 

 

Snow Peak 500-ml Kanpai Bottle

snow-peak-kanpai-bottlesnow-peak-kanpai-bottleThis delightful adult toy can keep a 16-oz can cold for six hours without a change in temperature. What’s that? You don’t drink tall cans? That’s cool, you can always stash your two favorite 12-oz cans in the 500-ml Kanpai Bottle. It comes with a “cold lid” and a “hot lid” for different uses. Freeze the cold lid ahead of time to maximize chill time, or, to keep hot drinks scolding hot for up to six hours, use the hot lid with the double wall vacuum sealed bottle and be careful not to burn your mouth.


*TMS is not responsible for injuries due to improper use of beverage containers. However, once you’ve repeatedly benefited from proper use of Beer Gear, we’ll take full credit via positive word of mouth :)

 

This next product is really, really cool and deserves to be included even if it’s not directly related to beer.

PowerPot Thermoelectric Generator

power-practical-powerpotpowerpot-generator-potPower Practical found a clever way to use thermoelectric technology so energy from camp stoves and fires isn’t wasted into the air. The Power Practical PowerPot is clever, to say the least. It’s a cooking pot that allows you to plug into the pot, boil water or make dinner, and charge your phone via USB in any environment (even winter camping). The pot and cord combined weigh only 14 ounces, and just 10 minutes of charging produces approximately 60 minutes of talk time.

 

Sound irrelevant? Well, think outside the box! There are countless ways a PowerPot can benefit beer lovers.

4 Quick Examples:

– Casually enjoy a single can of beer in the time it takes to charge an iPhone 5.
– 3-4 days into a trek, your phone dies. There goes your camera! Fortunately, you can charge it over dinner and still have time for one last inebriated “selfie” before the campfire burns out.
– If you were to run out of water while camping and required cell service to call for help, but your phone was dead, it would only take a few minutes to boil your beer and get enough charge for a distress call.
– Alcohol consumption slightly affects the memory, so in the odd case you forget to pack your other thermoelectric generator, the PowerPot’s got your back. Oh, and since it’s also a cooking set, it saves room in your pack for beer.

I know, I stretched pretty far to justify plugging this piece of gear. I just think the concept’s so great that I couldn’t help but share the news.

 

Score yourself some free Beer Gear:

In a recent interview with CANFEST, TMS Owner Dave Polivy said, “We look forward to bringing down outdoor products that also relate to the beer lover, including insulated growlers, reusable pint glasses, and bottles that will fully encapsulate canned beer.” TMS plans to make their booth fun, interactive and rewarding for all who stop by. “We will show-off recently released products and giveaway prizes on-site, host text to win contests, and utilize social media to engage with the crowd.”
