Pretty Much the Best Beer Koozie Ever

This is pretty much the best invention ever- or at least the best NHL team branded hockey glove beer koozie of all-time.

The fine folks over at "Game on Glove" have sent us a couple of these bad boys to give away. Yep, that's a hockey glove beer koozie. I would make the obligatory Jayson Werth fist reference, but since he hurt my heart, I'm not going to do that. We'll just assume Carts endorses this, or at least will endorse you if you wear it.


You can get one for $29.99 on their site, or you can tell us your favorite micro brew in the comments. The best two (be creative, basically I'm looking for suggestions for my next trip to the beer store) will get a Game on Glove. I'll choose the winner next week. This shit is real subjective, yo.

Speaking of beer……… last shameless reminder for our Super Bowl party at McFadden's Ballpark with FREE BEER during the first half. Send your name to if you want to go.

Comment for the koozie.

  1. I was drinking DFH’s White Squall during the comeback vs. Boston last year, can’t go wrong with that.
    Other favorites:
    Bear Republic’s Racer 5 IPA
    Lancaster Milk Stout
    Flying Fish Exit 6

  2. DogFish Head Bitches Brew – If you like dark this big bottle is worth a try. Its gonna be a little hard to find but its worth it. Pours dark and heavy but it drinks very smoothly.
    Rogue Chipotle Ale – If you are looking for something thats a little different from the norm this ale has a sweet taste with a smokey/mild pepper flavor.

  3. 21st Amendment- Hop Crisis
    Long Trail-Double Bag
    Both above are strong but smooth!
    Goose Island- 312 Wheat, Chicago’s amazing version of Blue Moon! Fucking Delicious
    And something that i think Kyle Scott would like:
    Mikes Hard Raspberry Lemonade (jeff carter special)

  4. Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout or Highland Brewery Cold Mountain Ale. Found the Cold Mountain Ale in Boone, NC and bought a case back because you can’t get it around here. I’ll trade you a koozie for a bottle.

  5. In the last three months, I’ve have 84 beers. Here are some of my favorites (in no order):
    Blue Mountain Brewery’s Full Nelson
    Southern Tier’s Choklat Stout
    Legend Brown Ale
    Green Flash West Coast IPA
    Bell’s Expedition Stout
    Lefthand/Terrapin Oxymoron
    Full Sail IPA
    Rogue’s Yellow Snow IPA

  6. “Tire Bite” by Flying Dog Brewery.
    It’s a golden ale that goes down smooth with lots of great flavor. Also, the bottle and case artwork are done by Ralph Steadman (did a lot of the classic illustrations associated with the works of Hunter S. Thompson) and look really cool on top of an already excellent beer!

  7. DFH Raison d’Etre is delicious, award-winning (Beer of the Year 2000), intoxicating (8% ABV) readily available, and relatively inexpensive ($35/case).
    Why are you still reading this… go get it!

  8. Oskar Blues Gubna, can’t beat it if you enjoy Imperial IPAs. 10% ABV, so many great flavors. And the best part…it comes in a can.

  9. Dogfish head Indian Brown ale. It has a great taste, high alcohol and you can drink a lot of them before falling over.

  10. Intercourse Paradise Pale Ale. Because after a long day of work who doesn’t like coming home and having some Intercourse. Sometimes I’ll even have some Intercourse when I wake up or even as an afternoon treat. Because really, is there such a thing as having too much Intercourse?

  11. Miller High Life – Best everyday drinking beer
    Delirium Tremens – Best Beer Summer
    Philadlephia Brewing Company, Shackamaximum or Joe Coffee Porter – Best Winter Beer

  12. Elysian’s Avatar Jasmine IPA – the jasmine is subtle (don’t let it scare you away), a very easy drinking beer
    Fisherman’s Navigator dopple bock

  13. My only question is…. Is there a hole on the bottom of the koozie fist as well… Just wondering……….. :\

  14. Best by far is “I’ll have what the gentleman on the floor is having” that ones by Mcguires…delicious and strong. Followed up in close second is Old Leghumper – Thirsty Dog Brewing Co… both are great.

  15. Weyerbacher – Old Heathen Imperial Stout
    It’s a Russian Imperial Stout, dark, but not too heavy. It’s great.

  16. Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian IPA
    Sly Fox Instigator <--Perfect for Hockey PBC Fleur de Lehigh <--Shibe Park on Label

  17. Michelob: Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale
    Hard to find in stores here in Delaware, but if you find it, grab a sixer for sure!

  18. Best Micro Brew?? EASILY
    Stone Lucky Bastard. It’s spelled 13ASTARD, for their 13th annual special ale. It’s a blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale. PHTW!!!!!!

  19. Aventinus Eisbock is a great beer if you can track it down. Nothing beats a beer thats frozen to make it more concentrated and give it a higher alcohol content. Also Weyerbocker’s Merry Monks. It’s a local brewery, a Belgium style beer, and again, high alcohol volume.

  20. Stone Lukcy Basartd (and no I didn’t spell it wrong) is very good. It’s a mix of Arrogant Bastard, oaked Arrogant Bastard, and Double Bastard.
    Rogue Dead Guy Ale is good too!

  21. Victory 12 – it’s 12% apv and comes in a wine bottle
    Terrapin Hopsecutioner – it’s got a picture of a turtle executioner on it. nuff said.

  22. If you’re a hops guy, go with Troegs Nugget Nectar. If you’re only sort of a hops guy, Troegs Hopback Amber Ale, that, my friend, is heaven in a bottle.

  23. You won’t find this beer in the philly area, but the next time you’re in New England you have to try “Shabadoo” by the Berkshire Brewing Company. It’s a great black and tan. It only comes one way…22oz bottles.

  24. Gret Lakes Brewing Company – Burning River. tasted it at last years Beerfest in AC for the first time and it was love at first taste.

  25. Just go to the Grey Lodge on Frankford Ave and I’ll buy you a pint of their ever changing microbrews, but I’d go with Yards Brawler. Koozie!?

  26. Flying Fish brewery Exit 4 American Trippel. Brewed locally in Cherry Hill NJ, exit 4 is the closest turnpike exit to Philly and is also in my home town.

  27. New Holland Brewery’s The Poet, an oatmeal stout. Like our old friend Donald Brashear, it’s refined, but can drop you with one punch.

  28. Dudes, Rodenbach Grand Cru is the uber dankness.
    Sour mashy, lambic-esque, but belgian wunder-brah.
    Ooodles of other mad deliciousness, but I’m on a mad Rody kick these days.

  29. Troegs nugget nectar ranks high on my list; very well balanced beer with an emphasis on hops. And, just your luck they just recently released it, plus it’s a good local brew. If your in the mood for something darker, see if you can find Avery’s The Czar Russian imperial stout, delicious.

  30. The two best beers I’ve had this year are Long Trail’s Brewmaster Series Centennial Red AND Weyerbacher’s Winter Ale (both available at Wegmans.)
    Some might prefer the 55% beer dubbed the “End of History.” There is also the 60% ABV boozer that has a more uplifting name in “Start the Future.”

  31. Tactical Nuclear Penguin by BrewDog. The beer set a new record by weighing in at a ridiculous 32% alcohol by volume (ABV). The brewery was able to attain the high alcohol content by freezing the beer at a local ice cream factory, at temperatures as low as 21°F, for 21 days. A warning label on the Tactical Nuclear Penguin bottle states,”This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. It is exactly the same manner you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.”
    Oh…And Cindy Crysby is still a bitch.
    That is all.

  32. I’m going to have to go with some strong, hearty Canadian suds and say grab a 12 pack of Steelback Lager. Brewed in SSM, home for Carts.

  33. Surprised no one said Victory Yakima Glory. Just bought one of the last of two cases at my distributor for the year.

  34. Saison du BUFF- Collaboration between Stone Brewing Co., Dogfish Head and Victory Brewing Co…Thats a rotation that may rival the Phils…

  35. bavarian barbarian- square feet wheat dunkleweizen. full flavored easy drinking wheat beer and the tap handle’s an axe.
    and billy beer, ’cause I think it’s the best I’ve ever tasted. And I’ve tasted a lot. I think you’ll like it, too.

  36. If you’re looking for a new beer expeirience, I’ll offer not only a few specific brews, but an entire genre. Try a barrel aged “sour ale.”
    There are quite a few available at most craft beer outlets in the Philadelphia area.
    Be warned, this might not be a beer you instantly fall head over heels for. I did, but I’ve seen it grow on people.
    These are basically ales aged for extended periods of time in oak casks, or barrels. They give off a woody, smoked flavor, and follow through with a sour taste thats honestly hard to describe. Here are a few of my favorites.
    Rodenbach makes a “Vintage 07” which comes in a wine sized 750ml bottle. It’s one of the oldest of the sours available, and in my opinion, the best. It pours a smoky light brown, with little creme head. It’s extremely smooth.
    Russian River makes two different sours, my favorite being “Consecration.” it’s made with cherries, and gives off a more fruit infused taste, with a strong taste of the oak cask its aged in. It’s one of the higher ranked beers in the world.
    Petrus brews it’s “Aged Ale,” which was the first sour I’ve ever had. Very similar to the Rodenbach, it’s smooth and very drinkable.
    Ommegang makes a fantastic sour called “Zuur.” I rarely see it but it’s worth a try if you find it.
    Lastly, Philly’s own Monk’s Cafe has a beer brewed specifically for them which can be found in some craft stores. “Monk’s Flemish Sour” red ale is light, sour, and probably the cheapest of the above listed.
    I know this might not be for everyone, but it’s my favorite genre of beer, and I implore all to give it a shot.
    Now give me a fucking koozie.

  37. Best microbrews that I have ever had:
    1. BULLFROG BREWERY (Williamsport, PA)
    – Insane taste throughout all of their different flavors and types.
    …my favorite is their NUT BROWN ALE
    2. Arrogant Bastard Ale
    – Also a great beer and awesome finish.
    GO WITH THEM AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY…and maybe even a little arrogant!

  38. If you can still find a bottle: Brooklyn Black Ops, bourbon barrel-aged stout that is so delicious I would shower in it if I could. Expensive, ~20 for a 750ml, but worth the price for this annual release.
    Almost any beer by Full Sail Brewery, might only be available in NJ though.

  39. Southern Tier Choklat Stout. 11% abv and sold in 22oz bottles (which might require some level of finagling to fit in the koozie, but I’ll make it happen).

  40. Troeg’s Mad Elf Ale…super limited availability, brewed with honey and cherries that help to hide the 11.5% ABV, which will warm your blood and soul on the coldest of winter nights. Also, you’ll get trashed on a sixer, although many may consider that a waste…not me though. 😀

  41. Oskar Blues craft beer in a can. Try the Dale’s Pale Ale for some hop or a Ten Fidy for a can of oil. Taylor’s Lefthand suggestion is also a good one.

  42. From this day onward I will walk
    easy on the earth. Plant trees. Kill
    no living things. Live in harmony with
    all creatures. i will restore the earth
    where I am. Use no more of its resources
    than I need. And listen, listen to what
    it is telling me.
