The Bottlesuit is a great little bottle cover that zips closed to keep your favorite beer cold, with the added benefit of protecting the brew from the warmth of your hands:

What group has not brainstormed about how best to raise money for a worthy charity? Take a lesson from the Lady Nelson Trafalgar 200 Grand Charity Auction held in Nelson, New Zealand this past weekend.
The practical "Dinners for Two" and boat cruises brought in a fair amount of interested bidders, but the thing that got the place jumping was a little case (12 bottles) of hand-crafted homemade ginger beer brewed by MP Nick Smith of Nelson. The beer brought in a hefty sum and helped contribute to the $6,000 raised for the Nelson Region Hospice Trust and Nelson Cancer Society.
Craft Brew of the Week Award:
Ipswich Dark Ale - Mercury Brewing Co. Inc., Ipswich, Massachusetts, USA
Style - American Brown Ale
Deep brown body, brushed hazy like nighttime madness, with a creamy, ample head and spotty lacing. Aroma rises to the nose, filling it with malty notes of roasted caramel and fruity sweetness. A yeasty fresh bread characteristic is touched with lemon citrus, pine, and fresh orange rind. Bitterness hovers above, but never overpowers the smooth mouthfeel. Finishes round.
