“I don’t always drink beer…but when I do, I prefer…...anything that’s cold!” I’m not a wine drinker, so I’ve never understood the need for bottlestoppers. But I thought I would try a few, since they seem quite popular (with carvers and turners, at least). It struck me that there should be a market with drinkers of beer and other bottled beverages and libations. They are very handy for keeping bugs out of your beverage of choice! And there is the safety issue also. Cmon, we all know how difficult it is to screw those caps back on, after consuming most of the bottle. Wouldn’t a simple stopper make your life much simpler? And popping one of these in your beer down at the local micro-brewery would help you identify YOUR bottle from all the others standing around on the table! And we never even knew we needed these?

So here’s a few, made from the little carvings I whittle on in my spare time. The guy in the blue shirt is a member of that most secret of societies, the clandestine organization known as the “Hair Club for Men”. They look just like everyone else; you never know who might be a member. It is rumoured that Shakespeare was a member (“Toupee or not Toupee, that is the question.) and of course Donald Trump has long been suspected. This would be a great stopper for a hangover drink, the “hair of the dog” of your choice. The skull would probably work well with rum, and the holiday ones would be good for eggnog! I think the others could be considered for Jack Daniels or any other guy that you could think of! You could probably even use them for wine! Maybe I’ll make one like a rocket ship, that you could use launch with diet Coke and Mentos! What a deal! Thanks for looking

If I drank beer I’d need one just to be different.
Fine job.

Great alternative use idea and I, for one, enjoyed the witty prose.
