This concept Lolo Lid is basically a special lid that grips a beer can—allowing it to be hidden inside a coffee cup.
The lid, which is currently the focus of a Kickstarter campaign, will not only provide an air barrier that acts as an insulator for your brew, it will allow you to drink beer where you probably…definitely shouldn’t be drinking beer.
Check out the project video after the break…

Of all the fun Hi-C juice boxes from my childhood, Ecto-Cooler was definitely my favorite. The spirit of the Ghostbusters-themed drink has been resurrected into a beer by Tired Hands Brewing Company.
Tired Hands has an experimental lab where the Ecto Cooler-inspired brew, dubbed “Necto Cooler” was created. Infused with grilled nectarines and hopped with Simcoe and Citra, the beer stands at about 4.5 percent ABV without any ectoplasm aftertaste. Probably.
For folks outside of the Philly area, we just missed the release. Maybe if we ask really, really, nice with a cherry on top, Tired Hands might bring back the brew to share with the rest of the class.
This mug, aside from featuring cool images of everyone’s favorite Star Wars characters, also plays a number of sounds when lifted—including the hum of a lightsaber being turned on, R2-D2 beeping away and Chewbacca roaring. Yep, I think Chewbecca roaring would get me pumped for my first cup of joe in the morning.

I know you’re thinking this kiss lid is the most awkward way to drink coffee, but is it really? I have a very intimate relationship with my coffee. It makes me happier when I have it and my day is fueled by it. Simply put, I can’t live without it.
I might as well just make out with my coffee.
South Korean designer Jang WooSeok totally gets people like me with these mouth shaped coffee lids. They’re only in a concept phase now but plans are underway to make the disposable lids a reality.

Are you a trucker or a hardcore gamer with little regard for your health? Is Freddy Krueger hunting you? If the answer is “yes” to either of these questions, the Juggernaut Travel mug might be the answer to that pesky need for sleep.
It holds 52 ounces. Fifty-Two! That’s six standard cups of coffee. Or perhaps you would prefer four cans of Mountain Dew. How about an entire X-treme Gulp from 7-Eleven? Hell, you might be able to take a bath in this thing.

San Leandro based brewery, 21st Amendment has unveiled it’s Toaster Pastry India Red Ale in a massive 19.2 ounce can. It’s the first beer produced in their new location which appropriately used to be an old Kellogg factory.

21st Amendment revealed some of the secrets to SFGATE in a recent interview:
“Biscuit malts give the beer a slightly nutty, crust-like flavor, while pale and dark crystal malts create the mouthfeel and flavors reminiscent of strawberry jam.”
The breakfast-y brew is 7.6 percent alcohol by volume and 74 IBUs (seriously hoppy and bitter). The hops used include Citra, Chinook, Simcoe, Mosaic, Azacca, and Calypso.
Thirsty yet? Mark your calendar for their grand opening celebration on August 29th.
How badly do you need coffee in the morning? Are you willing to tangle with a Weeping Angel to get your fix?

If the Merc with a Mouth had a thing for chocolate instead of tacos or pancakes, then he’d probably love this Marvel Deadpool Silicone Tray. You can use the tray to make chocolate or gelatin treats and ice cubes that look like Deadpool’s lovely face (try not to think about old avocados having sex).

Lately Australia’s milkshakes have become increasingly outrageous, but photographer Alana Dimou has brought them to a whole new level of insanity. She created three ridiculous milkshake concoctions: S’Mores Chicken, Bacon Burger, and Coles Baked Fresh Today Bakery Aisle. The last one is basically a family sized breakfast, in a milkshake.
On her blog Alana explains what these extreme shakes are all about:
“Be inspired. Eat marshmallows and chicken. Milkshake flavours are irrelevant now, the duty falls upon whatever lies on top. May God have mercy on us all.”
These towering treats are not for sale, but they are amazing to look at. Check out close-ups after the break.
