33 Books: The Hop Exploration Kit
Dave Selden at 33 Books has created the ultimate home hop kit for hopheads with The Hop Exploration Kit. This kit is designed to assist in understanding how hops affect beer. Just drop 2-3 drops of one of the included hops into a neutral beer, such as a Miller High Life and learn how the various hops can affect the beer’s aroma and flavor. The hop extracts also work great for adding to a cocktail, we especially like it integrated with a nice gin!

The Hop Exploration Kit includes beer tasting glasses, four varieties of hop concentrates, hop focused 33 Beers Beer Tasting Journals, a retro click pen, all inside a great packaged box.

The Hop Exploration Kit is $60.00 and can be ordered by clicking here.

The Chiller’s Pack by Chill Systems
One way of chilling down a few cans of beer or a 22-ounce bottle is with The Chiller’s Pack from Chill Systems. This new Chiller’s Pack is a bit more than your average cooler as no ice is actually needed to chill down your beer.

Chill Systems innovative pack is designed to perfectly insulate one Chiller unit. These units come in various sizes but the one we tried out holds up to three cans of beer or one 22-ounce bottle. The beer can be added to the previously frozen three can pack and the beers will chill down and will be ready to drink in about 30 minutes or so. This is handy when you have a few off the shelf beers and are heading outdoors.

The Chiller’s Pack retails for $89.00 and can be purchased by clicking here. If this is not of your liking Chill Systems also offers up a few other ways to cool your beverages!
