Friday Beer Blogging: Beer Tubes Edition

New beer technology is always coming along. Last time it was beer holsters and now I've discovered beer tubes. Well, on the internet anyway. I haven't actually seen or used one yet. In fact, when I first saw a picture of one I thought it was, well, a bong. But that was just my inner '70s brain doing the thinking.

What are beer tubes? One online retailer explains:

A Beer Tube is a 100-ounce beverage dispenser with a sports-themed base that keeps beverages colder than a traditional pitcher. The Beer Tube is easy to fill and easier to enjoy, with a removable tube for easy fill-up and a non-drip spout for easy dispensing.

Each Beer Tube is made of high-quality materials with precise attention to detail and is sure to add life to your sports bar, bowling league or tailgate party. Each Beer Tube also includes an area to place your team logo or custom message.

The Beer Tube stands approximately 3.5 feet high and the sports-themed base weighs between 4 and 8 pounds, depending on the design you choose. This makes these "power towers" of beverage extremely stable and durable.

Beer tubes are the 21st century pitchers but they still look like 20th century bongs.

Have a great weekend! And don't bogart that beer tube my friend.

Wings Etc. has these. After about a second of being amused it was incredibly obstructive on the table.
