Headmaster Electric Keg Pump

headmaster_electric_keg_ pump.jpgHere's exactly what we need for our barbecues this summer - a keg tap we don't have to pump. We've experimented with all kinds of taps over the years, and one that we don't have to worry about some jackass overpumping sounds damned sweet. This one comes with a US sankey good for most domestic kegs, and needs to be plugged in to operate, but you can buy a battery pack that will let it run for four hours without charging or plugging.

6 Gallon Beverage Dispenser Bucket

beverage-bucket.jpgWhen some people throw a party, they want classy - crystal decanters, stemmed glasses, upturned pinkies. When we throw a party, we want volume - amped music, loud laughter, and six gallons of booze minimum. That's what you get with the beverage bucket - no frills, just a bucket with room for six gallons of hooch, and a spigot to pour it with. We might just keep one in the living room for when we're watching TV.

Remote Control Beer Cooler

rc-cooler-robot.jpgWith Father's Day coming up, we can't think of anything dad might need more than a cooler that he can drive around the house. Not only can he get the beer from point A to point B without getting off the couch, he can also get the empties back from point B to point A for a refill. Hopefully it comes with a horn installed for those living room traffic jams too.

(Thanks for the tip, Jason!)

Coleman: Cool, Cooler, Coolest

cooler_couple.jpgWe know it's not quite here yet, but summer is just around the corner. That means it's not too early to start thinking about how, exactly, you're going to transport all that delicious beer you need to drink to the beach, camping, sporting events, and parties. You could take the old "rip open the case and dump in some ice" route, but you'd rather go with something a bit classier than that wouldn't you? Wouldn't you?

Whether you're shopping based on capacity, durability, portability, or price, we've got you covered with our roundup of big-ass coolers from Coleman. Mouse over each link to see an image and price.

Coleman 62-Quart Xtreme Wheeled Cooler (Blue) - This Goliath holds 85 cans plus ice, and the claim is it can store ice up to five days in 90 degree heat. Between that and the portability factor added by the two wheels on the other end, you don't even need to bring friends wherever you go with those 85 beers.

Coleman 54-Quart Steel Belted Chest Cooler (Stainless Steel) - Some days, you need extra security for your beers. You can sleep easily knowing your cooler's contents are safe, even in bear country...or if your roommate's been trying to get at your beers. Plus, it's leak proof, rust proof, and "completely redesigned for today's active lifestyle," whatever that means.

Coleman 150-Quart Cooler Marine with Rope Handles (White) - Not quite so portable but nothing to sneeze at if you're on a boat, this bad boy holds 223 cans and over 50 pounds of ice. Plus, it's big enough to hold 2 liter bottles upright...y'know, for the folks who don't drink beer.

Coleman Stainless Steel Party Cooler - What you give up in portability with this bad boy is made up for by the cool factor...and the built in bottle opener. Plus you can use it to hold up to 50 beer cans/bottles, or you can fill it with over 10 gallons of liquid (read: punch).

Coleman 36-Qt. Electronic Cooler With Radio & Clock - This cooler doesn't hold as many beers as the others, maybe, with capacity for only 46 cans, but it makes up for that with its high tech appendage. This guy offers AM/FM radio with a weather band, plus an MP3 plug and headphone jack and internal speakers.

Virtuoso Reveo Gourmet Cocktail Tumbler

ReveoDrinkTumbling_low_res.JPGWith the skyrocketing popularity of flavored liquors in the past few years, everybody seems to be infusing spirits these days. Heck, we've even played around with infusing vodka and gin ourselves, to mixed results. It's not that it was difficult to do the infusion, we just didn't have the patience to watch a perfectly good bottle of gin sit there and soak up blueberry juice.

Enter the Reveo Cocktail Tumbler. Based on the same technology designed to let you marinate meat in a fraction of the time, the makers of this gadget say it'll cut your mixology time down significantly as well. We don't follow all the technical details in the release, but it has something to do with vacuums and whatnot. However it works, we'd love to experiment with infusing mint right into our julep bourbon or creating our own flavored vodka, or even just use it as a high tech replacement for our handy cocktail pitcher.

Virtuoso is the first automatic home marinator and vacuum tumbler to appeal to wannabe mixologists who can wow friends and family with infused beverages (from lemonades and teas to sangria and spirits) and marinade dinner items in minutes, instead of hours.
See the press release after the jump.

R2D2 Ice Bucket with Han Solo Ice Molds

r2d2_icebucket.jpgWe don't even have words for how much we want this thing. If we owned this we'd be cooler than Lando Calrissian bathing in a vat of Colt 45. We almost need it bad enough to take the currency exchange hit of ordering it from Amazon UK.

iBar: Turn Your iPod into a Bartender

ibar_software.jpgIf you're looking for a bartending advice and you don't have the time or inclination to like, actually read a book or something, look no further than your mp3 player. With iBar software for Mac and PC, you can transform your iPod into a mobile drink reference, complete with over 1,000 cocktail recipes plus "helpful tips, anecdotes, entertaining audio, toasts, and measurements." C'mon, you're only using the thing for music, photos, and Frisky Dingo episodes right now anyway...might as well make it useful too.

Faberge Martini Shaker

faberge_cocktail_shaker.jpgWe know that tax refund you just put in for is burning a hole in your pocket, so what better way to celebrate than by buying a mysterious cocktail shaker made by Faberge. It looks like it might be made of silver of some kind. All we can say is, for the kind of money they're charging, it better make our drinks taste like Scrooge McDuck's vault.

Mad Science Bartending Set

mad_science_bartending_set.jpgOK, so this thing is frickin' cool. We can just picture ourselves, wild-haired and dressed in lab coats, mixing drinks and cackling insanely while muttering about taking over the world. Oh, wait. That's what we do anyway. At least we'd have some test tubes and a beaker on hand to add to the realism.
