North Drinkware is known for their custom molded Mt. Hood glass that catches the light at the bottom of a pint, and creates a beautiful nucleation point for bubbles. The glasses are designed in Bend, and hand blowin in Portland. The special limited edition glasses in this kit are etched with the official Baerlic Brewing badge monogram logo.
“The Oregon Pint is our handblown, 16 oz pint glass with USGS data of Mt. Hood – Oregon’s highest peak at 11,250 feet – molded into the base of the glass. The glass that started it all backed by over 5,620 backers on Kickstarter. The icon of mountain glasses known the world around.”
Also part of the Baerlic/North Drinkware collaboration is a commemorative label for their “Dad Beer” Pre-Prohibition Lager label showing off the topography of the west coast’s most charismatic mountain.
Dad Beer “I’d Rather Be Drinking A Beer Right Now” koozie.
“When you’re busy in the yard or getting jumped on by the kiddos—or any of that more risky ‘Dad Stuff’ you get into—you surely don’t want to risk breaking that beautiful Mt. Hood glass. So we designed up the ultimate outdoor drinking apparatus that also doubles as a beer glove.” – Nick Perry, Dad
Dad Bag “I’d Rather Be Full of Beer Right Now” canvas ‘totes’ bag.
“Research has shown that most dad’s have stuff. And if you’re anything like me, that stuff’s gotta go somewhere, right? That’s why we’ve formulated the ultimate Dad “totes” Bag that not only holds your stuff, but it also holds beer. Like…enough beer to last almost a whole day.” – Stephen Helwig, New Dad.
If that wasn’t enough, the Dad Beer Survival Kit comes with a stick of the classic Summer Sausage from the world famous Olympia Provisions and a Salt’N’Nib Chocolate bar from Charley and his chocolate factory Woodblock Chocolate.
“I don’t know much, but what I do know is that Dad Beer, sausage and chocolate are all dangerously delicious in their own right. I’m no scientist, but I wonder if we’d be playing with fire if we purposely chose to combine all of that into a single flavor experience. I mean, can there be too much of a good thing? Seriously…think about that for a second. That’s just not a risk I’m willing to take.” – Eldon Farlow II, Dad
