Star Wars Beer Gifts

With the upcoming release of Star Wars: Rogue One (which we are super pumped about) we thought we’d revisit Star Wars themed beer gifts for Christmas. May the force be with you all.

Millennium Falcon Bottle Opener

bottle_opener_-_millenium_falcon_1024x1024If you’re expecting a ‘this bottle opener made the kessel run in 12 parsecs’ line – you’ve come to the right place! Who knew a Corellian freighter could inspire so much hope and happiness, especially now that it can open your brew!

Han Solo in Carbonite Beer Fridge

1caf_han_solo_fridgeThey say it holds ‘soda’ in the product description but that is just an old Jedi mind trick to drink more sugary fizzy liquid. We know what this fridge is for.

Wookie Beer Koozy

chewbacca-beer-kooziesPut your bowcaster down and grab this can Koozy for the ultimate in beer protection. It’s furry like a wookie and probably the closest we’ll ever come to petting a real Chewbacca… cuz Chewbacca is real, dammit. *makes a Chewbacca roaring noise*

It’s a Trap Beer Glass

il_570xn-329169721Etsy is filled with glorious items. We found this gem amongst many many many Star Wars themed items. I imagine every time you drink out of this mug you will utter Admiral Ackbar’s famous line numerous times. Who knows, the more you fill the mug, the more you may sound like the great Admiral?

R2D2 Beer Cooler

r2d2-cooler_flickrhivemindPretty sure you can’t buy this, but it was just too good not to post in this blog. Imagine this in your backyard? It combines the greatest Astromech droid of all time with BEER! Unreal. Too bad it’s not available at retail anytime soon.

LightSaber Bottle Opener

star-wars-lightsaber-bottle-openerSadly, lightsabers aren’t a reality yet. (my hands and arms thank you for that) and this may be the closest thing to opening your beer with the magical Jedi weapon. They say the force is an energy field created by all living things, but do they really mean that beer is the great connector? Will we ever truly know?
