Bottle Blaster Review

Bottle Blaster
Bottle Shotgun Device
Typical Price: $14.95 (Buy One)

We've always been fascinated by the concept of shotgunning from a beer bottle. We flirted with ideas for how to do it, including using a drill to make a hole at the base of the bottle. We always held off, however, because even in our most drunken state we were pretty sure we'd end up bleeding externally or internally. That's why we were excited when our Bottle Blaster arrived...it promised the coveted ability to shotgun a bottle of beer without coming away looking like Andrew WK.

Bottle BlasterWe have three pieces of information for you about the Bottle Blaster. The first is that it's incredibly easy to set up the shotgun...you just slide the gadget down over the neck of the bottle until it's snug, and...well, that's pretty much it. The second piece of information is that the diameter of the hole you drink from is big...it's like an inch across. The third is that there is a carburetor on the side that lets you more or less control the flow of beer as it comes out of the mouthpiece.

And we have to say, that's a good thing. We've been around the block when it comes to shotgunning beer, but the first couple times we tried the Bottle Blaster, we had a hard time keeping beer from shooting out of the corners of our mouths like a lawn sprinkler. We learned to keep up through a mixture of fierce chugging and a thumb over the carb hole, but it took some practice. Intern Doug, who took part in the review, called the Bottle Blaster's rate of speed "aggressive." We call that an understatement...it's more like frighteningly awesome.

Once you master the Bottle Blaster, it's one of the coolest toys we've played with for massive beer consumption, right up there with the Shotgun 2.0. Of course, you can't hang this one on your keychain and it's a little more expensive, but it fills people with the same wide-eyed wonder. You pull out this little gadget that looks like a combination medieval torture device/periscope, slap it on top of a bottle and shotgun it, you're going to have friends lining up to try it.
