Father’s Day

Dad Pint, leather pint koozieFather’s Day is just around the corner! I have to admit, I think that mothers and fathers should be celebrated many-a-day and not just on a single designated day. That being said, I was just honored for Mother’s Day and I thoroughly enjoyed the love!

Here’s a little history about Father’s Day:

The day came about in 1910 by daughter, Sonora, who thought that father’s should have a day to be honored as well as mothers. Sonora’s father raised six children as a single parent and she wanted to show her appreciation. Thanks to her efforts, we now know the 3rd Sunday in June to be a nationally recognized day to celebrate fathers!

Oowee Products has been working toward giving you more options to honor your husbands, fathers or baby daddies with unique leather koozies! We know he loves craft beer and could dig a cool new koozie that gives him a special shout out! Check out our ready made section to order, or create your own through the custom section!

These guys don’t mess around!The group bounced from there to Catawba/French Broad around 10am.Sunny Point and Oyster House were the noon time stops and great places to grab a bite to eat. Sunny Point was kind enough to have some delicious food ready for the RateBeer group. Next breweries in the line up were Pisgah and Wedge and they capped the night with some dinner eats back downtown at Mamacitas.

rate beer, burialOkay, so you think whew, that’s a long day of brewery love, right? Well, for these guys it’s just the beginning! On Saturday the action doesn’t start up until 11am… peeps gotta’ be able to sleep in after such an awesome Thursday and Friday! So, after some shut eye, they began with a bang at 11 at Wicked Weed for a tour and some sampling of specially crafted brews. Next on tap was Burial and Green Man; everything was in easy walking distance. The Grand Tasting was from 3-7 which left plenty of room for folks to take their time enjoying the south slope of downtown. That Grand Tasting was located Asheville Music Hall and had a fun array of bottles and kegs!

RateBeer really knows how to put together an eventful few days. Getting all this to come together has got to be a lot of work! All for the love of craft beer!

Thanks to Travis Nevill for supplying photos!

Wedding Gifts!

Need some wedding gift ideas? Personalized leather sleeves are the perfect, creative and functional way to honor yourself and friends for your wedding events!

Custom koozieI got hitched this year, April 20th in fact. I know, I know 4.20. We really didn’t plan that… I promise. We wanted the wedding to be rather low-key. We didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen. Instead, we just had our nieces proceed down the aisle before me.

Sticking with the low key concept, my fianc and I decided to have a co-ed bachelor/bachelorette party. Our buddies constructed a local pub crawl for a lovely spring weekend afternoon. It was a perfect way to celebrate tying the knot! We had friends come in from out of town and all our local buddies helped create an awesome vibe for the “Scrawlz Pub Crawl”.

We felt so loved and appreciated that we had to come up with a way to show our gratitude to our buddies. We had personalized 4.20 Scrawls (Scott and Ralz) leather pint glass sleeves made and gave them to all our friends with a pint glass in it ready to be filled.Wicked Weed

The day of the bike crawl, Scott and I donned our matching MMJ t-shirts. Yes, we are dorks! We packed up our wedding party gifts so everyone would have a leather pint sleeve to represent our little pub crawl tribe. Everybody loved them!! That was a great way to unite us for the daily activity of libation intake!

We met up with some of our West Asheville peeps on bikes at Sunny Point and headed toward the Wicked Weed. The Weed was the first stop. The rest of our bike crew met us there. Good thing we had a time limit because those beers are so tasty that we could have planted ourselves there for the afternoon. Next stop was Thirsty Monk. That was a nice downtown interlude before pedaling Custom koozie with Wedge

down to the Wedge. We lingered there for a bit and I could tell we all needed to get a bite to eat. I called the WALK and let them know that there was a group of 20 bikers with a bit of a buzz headed their way for some eats. They treated us great and gave us some highly important alcohol absorbing substance. From there, we headed to my house to enjoy a fire, some tunes and our day of beverage bliss.Custom koozie

We all carried the leather pint sleeves around to all the breweries that day and I am proud to say that those custom leather sleeves are still showing up at parties and on porches. We kept a couple for Scrawls kooziesourselves, of course, as a little memorabilia from our wedding. I keep one on me at all times. You never know when you might stop for a brew!
