A pitcher of beer is what’s often used to fill up a cold mug. But what do you call a gadget that lets you pour beer from a can better than, uh, pouring beer from a can? Yes folks, an invention like this can only come from Japan, where you buy gadgets for things that don’t even need gadgets.
The name of this jolly attachment for post-work office hours can’t be any more way off the mark than Takara Tommy Beer Hour. You’d expect it to be marketed with a tag that’s connected with its use, but instead it implies being used for beer time. Then again, why pour beer from a can when you can just drink straight from a can?
Before you stop reading this article, hold on a minute for the punch line: the Takara has a built in stirrer that lets you pour with froth for that old school effect. Maybe you can even just pour it straight into your mouth. That would be rich. In case you’re [mildly] interested, the Takara Tommy Beer Hour is currently retailing for $29 at this location.
