Beer Drinkers Get A Grip

Monday, March 8, 2010 18:16 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beer drinkers – especially those who like suds in a can – should really get a grip.

The Can Grip is a plastic handle that attaches to a beer can so drinkers can hold their brew like a mug.

Co-creator Peter Engler – a CU-Boulder alum who’s living proof that drinking in college really does pay off – says the Can Grip serves many purposes.

For starters, it prevents hands from freezing while holding a cold one and gives folks a sturdy handle on their brew after they’ve had a few.

Engler, who’s “never been a fan of the koozie,” thinks the handle also makes cans look classier, no matter how crappy the beer.

The bottom part of the gadget not only locks a brew in place, it also acts as a mini coaster.

Although hugely popular with college kids, Engler says it’s for anyone with an honest love of beer.
