uKeg

Pressurized growler for fresh beer. With vacuum insulated stainless steel, and a VPR Pressurization Cap, your beer stays deliciously cold and perfectly carbonated. It also has a keg style tap handle for easy pouring. A sight glass lets you know just how much beer you have left, while a gauge just below tells you how much pressure your pint is getting.

Remote Control Beer Cooler

With room for six cans or bottles and ice, this remote-controlled cooler can roll across a patio, rug or kitchen floor to deliver a well-timed beverage to party guests. The compact cooler rolls on four sturdy underside wheels up to 60′ from the host at the controls. The radio remote’s simple controls send the cooler forward, backward, and left or right.

Beer Aroma Booster

Any seasoned beer drinker knows to savor the first few sips of a proper pour—once the beer’s head is gone, the brew loses its distinct aroma. Using ultrasonic vibrations and two teaspoons of water, this innovative design revives the beer’s head throughout the drinking experience, so you can enjoy freshly poured taste until you’re ready for your next pint.

Das Horn

With this drinking horn in hand, you are going to storm your next tailgate party like a viking. The horn holds a heroic 24 oz. of beverage. It not only comes with a convenient stand, for when you’re busy taming the flames of an epic, but it also includes a neck strap, allowing you full, two-handed gesturing as you regale your eager listeners at your next campout or Best Man’s toast. The BPA-free horn is also dishwasher safe, for when your last adventure of the day is clean up.

Beeropoly 

Beeropoly, a hopped-up drinking game, invites players to quaff their way through a series of beer challenges. Players take turns rolling the dice (included) and moving their bottle cap pieces around the board. They complete the beer challenges along the way and risk elimination. The last man or woman standing must drink the Community Cup. Cheers!

The U.S. is Ripe for Hofer Beer

Two brewers from Hof (Bavaria) and a neighboring city, Fattigau deliver their first beer to The United States. One of the partners of Zelos Trading lived in Hof for eight years & decided to bring his favorite Bavarian beer to The United States.

This started about 13 years ago when Behrad Ashayeri moved to Hof from Washington D.C where he worked as a Logistics Manager for MultiTrans AG. While living in Germany, he met his wife and learned perfect German In 2008 he moved back to Washington D.C., visiting Hof frequently. Upon going on vacation to Hof in 2013, the idea of importing Bavarian German beer to D.C began surfacing.

After a couple of tasting parties with friends and family, the feedback was better than expected. Behrad was so confident, he flew back to Germany to meet with the Brewery “Stelzer.” They went over the details of American laws for the beers they were planning to import. What Behrad was not ready for was the complicated and lengthy American process and requirements to become a beer importer. These requirements is where MultiTrans AG came into play. Due to the heat treated pallets, white colored cartons and all the numerous permits required by the U.S Government it took almost a year to organize the first container. Owner Christian Stelzer states how U.S. law requires new bottles, so they had to be manufactured in Ukraine and trucked to Fattigau.

All of the leg work is done and the container is leaving in the next few days to Hamburg on its journey to Baltimore. The first shipment from Fattigau to the United States will include the following beers: Bio-Perle, Ritter Trunk, Export, and UrtypHell. Zelos Trading is hopeful that the second container will also include beer from a brewery called “Meinel.” Stelzer is considered a pioneer of Hof since this is the first time in the town’s history that our beer is going over the Atlantic.
