Alcohol. It’s awesome. End of story. But, how about paying $8 for it at the ballpark? Totally not awesome. That’s why people need flasks. And if people need flasks, let them get one with style. Like, the Kickass Flask ($99) by Owen & Fred. Stainless steel makes up the flask, and it holds 9 ounces of delicious liquor. That’s equivalent to 6 shots , or just about what it takes to get the party started. There’s a solid screw top to prevent leakage because no one wants leakage. No one.

Jacob Bromwell + Winter Session Flask: Old School Like It Oughta Be
Gear By on Jun 4, 2013
The flask has been around since… well, we’re not sure, but it’s been a damn long time. Point is, chugging booze out of a Smart Flask — now with a built-in heart rate monitor! — just sounds silly. The Great American Flask ($195) is anything but silly. It’s hand-soldered out of pure copper and lined using a traditional hot-tinning method. It’s made in Chattanooga, TN, and holds nine ounces of the stuff that cures what ails ya. Save the tech for the phones and watches–leave the flasks alone.
The Macallan x Oakley Flask: For God’s Sake, Protect Your Liquids
Gear By on Mar 11, 2013
We’ve covered our share of flasks here, but this one may might take the job of Booze Protector the most seriously. The Macallan Flask ($900) is a joint venture between The Macallan distillery and Oakley (yes, the sunglasses company), and the result is this incredibly rugged specimen. A stealthy blend of steel, carbon fiber, and aerospace-grade aluminum oughta keep those liquids safe, no? A rubberized bottom and a subtle air vent on the side make this flask ready for the most important job any container can have–besides of course, the nacho cheese dispenser.
Red Stanley Flask: From Thermos To Belly Furnace
Gear By on Mar 7, 2013
Masters of the thermos for decades, Stanley knows sometimes you need something smaller; something more discreet; something ready to revitalize your Friday night should that rom-com you were dragged to not cut it. The new red Stanley Flask ($24) is made of stainless steel and holds 8 ounces of whichever brand of firewater you prefer. Heck, go nuts and put some Game of Thrones beer in there. Then wobble back to your seat and derive as much pleasure as one can from sassy dialogue and a shirtless Matthew McConaughey.

Pouring out a beer through your pants is the kind of attention-getting move that previously had been too cumbersome to attempt. Now with Freedom Flask ($26.70) you can hide up to two liters of refreshing drink in your crotch area, then simply unzip your fly for liquid refreshment. Between this and the BevBuckle the other day, we are officially declaring this Drink From Your Groin Week. Enjoy!
Hydro Flask Growler: Vacuum Insulated Growler
Gear By on Sep 10, 2012
Straws are dainty. You’re not dainty. Reinforce that fact with the anti-straw: the 64 oz Hydro Flask Growler ($50). Seriously, the mouth on this thing is wider than Steven Tyler’s. Plus it’s cast from double wall, vacuum-insulated, food-grade 18/8 stainless steel, so it’s resistant to bacteria and odors–perfect for storing a large quantity of an aromatic beverage in. The insulation technology means your spiked hot cider stays hot and your, uh, cold spiked cider stays cold. Ain’t nuttin’ dainty about hot or cold spiked cider, my friend. Especially with a gargantuan gulp out of this growler.
J.Crew Leather Drinks Flask
Culture By on Nov 4, 2011
This is no ordinary flask. The J.Crew Leather Drinks Flask is for the sophisticated man, a man with refined tastes, a man who wants to look good while drinking on the go. I never thought I’d refer to a holder of booze as elegant, but this sleek flask is just that. It can hold 240ml of your favorite adult beverage, so the man behind the flask can indulge in his drink of choice for more than a few delightful sips. The J.Crew Leather Flask has a smooth leather exterior, stainless steel body, and it’s curvy in all the right places for a comfortable and effortless fit. Am I talking about a car here or a flask? For $43, this flask is well worth it to be able to drink in style.

Culture By on Apr 25, 2014
Remember bringing a flask to work and hiding in the bathroom to down it? Oh what, that’s just me? Whatever. Now you can leave the flask at home and bring these Beer & Wine Lollipops instead. Lollyphile gives you 6 flavors to choose from: Cabernet Sauvignon, IPA, Lager, Merlot, Chardonnay and Stout Beers. Stash a handful in your desk drawer and pull one out whenever that cubicle mate next to you starts chit-chatting too much.
