The season of scarves, mittens, and inhumanly puffy jackets is here. No matter now you bundle up, it seems like the cold some how finds its way to intrude upon our lives. Despite the cold, our desire for alcohol seems to burn hotter than ever before, especially when it comes to a nice refreshing bottle of beer. It’s not often we find ourselves drinking outdoors, especially in the cold, but when we do, the cold bottle forces us to choose between a refreshing drink or freezing our hands off. You can wear slippery gloves or mittens, but with those you risk losing your grip on the bottle.
As you can probably imagine, Iceland seems to have mastered the cold and introduces us to a mitten specifically made for drinking. The Hanskie Drink Mitt has connected the mitten’s thumb and fingers to create a circular pouch for your beer. It may look funny, but for those occasions when you’re outdoors in the winter, there’s no better way to consume beer without losing your fingers to frostbite.
You may not use the Hanskie that often, given its unique design and very specific use, but for those rare occasions when you need to drink outdoors, you’ll be thankful that you’re hands are in good mitts.
