The DraftBottle Story
I just wanted to cut my grass and have a beer!
Like most inventions or ideas, they are born out of a need to help solve a problem, and if it involves beer, you better believe I will be motivated to solve it! So, what is that problem? How do you enjoy your draft beer or glass beer in places where you don’t want plastic cups and/or you want the feel of holding a classic beer bottle? – That is where DraftBottle comes in!
A few years ago I was getting ready to do some yard work and I wanted to enjoy the beer I had on tap in my kegerator. There were a few problems, the plastic cups are too open, and grass and bugs fall into it, it gets warm, it spills easily, etc etc etc. Then I thought, why isn’t there a beer bottle that opens below the neck so I can fill it up with draft beer?? DraftBottle was born!
Design Patent Approved and Issued
In March of 2019, I was informed that our 2 design patents for a screw and snap together convertible container were approved, we immediately went to work finding a manufacturer and began the process of making production molds and putting together a launch budget.
I purchased it because of the curious construction – it is both a bottle and a cup, a transformer bottle so to say. It keeps your drinks warm for a long time and no spillage. I switched to this bottle after I stepped on the glass shards I didn’t clean properly after I dropped my mug.
We are outdoors all the time – biking, fishing, camping and have finally found the right beverage holder for us, keeps the drinks cold, no matter what.
The bottle is one of my best food/drink related purchases. I got it for work, but I guess it will do just fine for outdoor activities too. It keeps my ice-tea cold for a long time, a breeze to wash and looks supercool. Can be used both as a cup and as a bottle and comes in many colors, I got grey.
Well I use it not for beer, but for camping and it’s fine by me. It’s really important that there are no leaks, or my whole backpack would be ruined. Took it two times with me, so far no issues, easy to use. I mean come on, what issues could you have with a steel bottle apart from leakage? 5/5, would buy again.
Had this bottle for a year now. No issues, everything is as described – dishwasher-friendly, keeps my water stuff warm. It got some scratches on the surface after 1 year, but I guess it is to be expected.
The bottle is great for keeping your beverages cool. I use it mostly for fishing trips. A pro tip: pour your beer into the bottle (or any beverage for that matter) and put it in a lake or near your boat somewhere (remember to fix it with a rope or smth). This way your beer will be cold FOREVER!
It is easy to clean, compared to other bottles, because you can just turn it into a cup and wash all the parts separately from each other. I had a solid metal bottle before and it was tough to clean. Whoever came up with this idea is a genius or something…
Bought for beer with my bros, but my wife begged to get her one for her yoga or pilates or whatever stuff she’s doing at the gym…
LOVE the bottle! I’ve been thinking about getting a metal one instead of plastic or glass bottles…It’s eco-friendly and safe to use and I really love how cool it looks. Draft bottle was recommended to me by a friend and here I am… Easy to wash, can be used for literally any beverage and keeps the temperature like no other.
