FBBF 2015 Pint Sleeve

Oowee branded leather pint glass sleeve with detachable lanyard holder.

For the previous four years, Oowee had sponsored the French Broad Brew Fest (Fall Festival) by releasing a new product at each event. Oowee has offered festival guests the first look at our new products. In years past we have revealed our full color metal badge sleeves, double-stitchedpint sleeve, stainless steel pint sleeve, mason jar sleeves and now this year we are proud to announce the new Oowee Pint with Lanyard necklace.

The Oowee lanyard makes it easy to go hands free around the festival. Your beer goes where you go, no setting it down and walking away. Best of all, this lanyard fits on ANY Oowee leather hugger. This is a must have for you craft beer lovers and festival goers.

Chicago Bound!

Monday started an eight day marketing trip from Asheville to Chicago. Monday was a bit damp with lots of rain and hail, made the drive along one.

The first event Oowee is attending is a trade show for promotional products companies. This is our first time displaying our products for this group so it is very exciting. We are promoting our ethically manufactured products made right here in North Carolina. If you can’t buy local, at least buy American made!
