Quarantined In A Bar With the COVID-19 pandemic spread throughout the US, most areas like ours have been given a stay-home order by their government officials. We were provided 30 minutes to locate our quarantine location to hunker down in for 30 days. We were smart enough AND fortunate enough to locate 4 bars within a 30 minute drive. The problem we ran into, was each bar was sold out of all alcohol options except three. Limited choices and limited time. Which bar would you spend your social distancing days in? Tell us on our facebook page!

Murder Mystery | Who Poisoned Boozin' Bob Play along with us! This Halloween brings us a BoozinGear original murder mystery. Figure out the mystery and you will receive a $200 gift certificate from BoozinGear.com as a reward! That’s plenty of dough to cover your Halloween costume and get some Christmas shopping done early.


Our top service representative, Boozin’ Bob was found dead yesterday morning outside of his uptown condo. Upon initial investigations, it appears Boozin’ Bob was poisoned. After 36 hours and no leads, investigations are at a standstill and it’s now up to you to help figure out the mystery! What we currently know about the situation, is that Boozin’ Bob had recently invited a few colleagues and alcohol brand owners for a business marketing proposal to his current home state of Michigan. His guest list included:

-Justin Timberlake: Owner of Sauza 901 Tequila, a partner of Sauza Tequila. He had cut his trip home to Memphis short upon hearing of his invititation to the “mitten state”.
-Bethenny Frankel: Owner of Skinny Girl Margaritas. She was conveniently in the state of Michigan looking for some new lakefront real estate on both Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.
-George Clooney: Owner of Casamigos Tequila. Preferring to keep his tequila private, Bob convinced him to appear to hear a pitch on a potential Oscar winning beer pong movie and series pilot.
-Sean Combs: Owner of Ciroc Vodka. With the success of Ciroc once joining the team, Boozin’ Bob was looking to bring him in to join the Boozin’ Gear, Inc corporation to broaden the brand.
-Bruce Willis: Owner of Sobieski. With his experience as a spokesperson, Bob was hoping to get Bruce on board with the next marketing plan.
-Dan Akroyd: Owner of Crystal Head Vodka. He started this brand from the ground up and that same drive was desired by the team at Boozin’ Gear, Inc.

The location of the meetup with everyone was a secret, just as much as the meet itself. A few locations that had been known to hold an event for BoozinGear and usually ensure Bob and everyone who joins him will have a blast! A few possible bars that the meetup was:

-A.J. Bailey’s Bar: 304 Salzburg Ave Bay City, MI. A small local bar known for its bar leagues, mainly darts (both steel and soft)
-Hill’s Bar: 7304 Gratiot Rd Shields, MI. HILLS FOR THRILLS. A small dive bar set for small town entertainment and great service
-MI Slinger’s Bar & Grill: 11791 Farmington Rd Livonia, MI. Full of non-stop excitement and entertainment daily
-Bay Lanes Tap Alley: 4243 N Euclid Ave Bay City, MI. Attached to the bowling alley with over a dozen craft beer options
-Hennessey’s Pub & Kitchen: 42012 Hayes Rd Clinton Township, MI. An Irish Pub with vast food selection as well as tvs all around the bar
-Lumber Barons & Stables: 804 E Midland St Bay City, MI. This facility is a brewery, restaurant, bar, banquet facility and most notably, stables (like stables for your horses, but quaint cute rooms to enjoy your company)

Lastly, we need to find out which drink was slipped the poison. Boozin’ Bob has been known to drink whatever his companions are indulging in (unless it’s Tequila~). These are some of the adult beverages that potentially brought about his horrific death:

-Jack Daniel’s - a whiskey on the rocks
-Coors Light - a 12oz bottle
-Fireball Whisky - a cinnamon whisky shot chilled
-Bud Light - a 16oz draft
-Veuve Clicquot - a flute of champagne
-Pabst Blue Ribbon - a 16oz tall boy can
-Corona Extra - a 12oz bottle w/ lime wedge
-Guinness - a two part slow poured pint

Use this Mystery Clue Card to try and figure out who murdered Boozin’ Bob? Which drink did they successfully spike with poison? At which bar did this happen? Answer all three questions and you will have solved mystery! Follow our facebook (www.facebook.com/boozingear) for your chance to submit your answers, where we will announce the rules and details on solving the mystery.

Midwest 5K Showdown Prediction | Pro Beer Pong BoozinGear.com is sponsoring another professional pong tournament; the MIDWEST 5K SHOWDOWN. Senior analyst Conman brings us his 3v3 predictions after selecting the seeding (randomly) for preliminary match ups. This is what he envisioned happening:


After a day of tight preliminary rounds and good ponging, team “Ya Know” locked up the overall number one seed with a perfect preliminary record of 5-0 plus 24. The most competitive game was against team “Flawless Victory”, who wrapped up the second overall seed. Beating the early favorites by 4 with great team shooting led by Brittney Harness from Bay City, Michigan, Sweet Lou (all the way) from New Jersey, and team captain Nick Trupiano from Detroit, Michigan. These two teams may be destined to meet again.

3rd - Tim Tina and A Boy Named Sue

4th - Pawng Patrol

5th - Ain’t No Laws While Drinking Claws


Double Elimination Playoff Pods

After cruising to a number one seed team “Ya Know” takes a loss in the winners finals to “Pawng Patrol” after Nick getting cocky taking a blind 2-rack shot to try and impress the ladies. Timing is everything and team “Ya Know” learned that lesson the hard by making mistakes this late in the tournament. They quickly regrouped and came back to beat “Laws and Claws” in a grueling six overtime game to get to the finals. In the finals of their pod, Trupiano and Lou assert their dominance on the table and shoot a combined one hundred (perfect game) in game 1. With the tournament on the line they needed to find a way to continue their precision. Brittney closed out the game by making some huge clutch shots to put an end to a very confident “Pawng Patrol” in game 2 to win bracket A.

Meanwhile in bracket B “Flawless Victory” stumbles often down the stretch and proves everything but flawless, but maintains being undefeated all the way to the finals. The loser final bracket was a match-up of teams “Tim, Tina, and A Boy Named Sue” taking on “Going To Paris”. This was definitely one of the most entertaining match-ups of the day. Multiple overtimes and all around great shooting for both teams fueled the excitement of the day. Former WS champion, Nick Syrigos and his team shined and took down the opposing team confirming why he is a champion. “Going to Paris” took on “Flawless Victory” in their pod finals. Carrying forward their momentum, “Going To Paris” won game 1 against Donnie Jones and crew. Michigan native Tyler Spencer seeming to be off and struggling to hit shots, Abby Cadabby really stepped it up while Donnie began to struggled down the stretch. After some misses from Trupiano, and a huge swat attempt by Josh Schwent that knocked out 5 cups from the rack, “Flawless Victory” won game two and will now get a chance to meet “Ya Know” in the finals for a much anticipated rematch.


Battle for third place | Best of 1 Game

Pawng Patrol vs Going to Paris

Adam Gallup, Faxon Townsend and Sara Schauman couldn’t find a groove after their poor performance in the bracket finals; blowing a 6 cup lead to “Going to Paris” who was also struggling after their earlier swat debacle. They just couldn't get their heads straight. “Going to Paris” finished strong under the encouragement of their captain and finishing up in third place.


Finals - best 2/3

Team “Ya Know” started hot out of the gate, shooting 15/18 and steals game 1 by 4 cups. Lou PG’s (doesn’t miss) and Brittney capitalizes on her nearly all 4th ball attempts.

“Flawless Victory” rebounded and Donnie reemerged, being the best player in the state since Dane Ellis. He locked in and didn’t miss. He shot an 8 cup perfect game in regulation and didn’t miss in overtime. Game 2 went to 1 OT and “Flawless Victory” ran all 4 cups in the first turn. Very clutch shooting by Abby and Tyler as they took game two.

Game three was a match to remember. Both teams could NOT miss (figuratively). Trash talk from each side of the table was flying in all directions. Lou continued to get into Donnie’s head, but it did not shake him. “Flawless Victory” was just that… FLAWLESS. Trupiano and Brittney made a two cup rebuttal to save their tournament lives but they just couldn’t keep up with Abby and her dominant performance in each overtime round. “Flawless Victory” wins the Midwest 5k Showdown and becomes the 2019 3v3 champions!!!!

Final standings:


2nd place YA KNOW

3rd place GOING TO PARIS

4th place PAWNG PATROL


We can't wait to see who ACTUALLY takes down the championship this weekend and gets their hands on these over sized trophies. Good luck to all those who are competing!

The Future Of Beer Cans Beer packaging especially beer cans are undergoing an innovation renaissance right now and slim cans are leading the way to a new look and feel for our favorite beverages. Breweries and beverage companies have been listening to their customers and are releasing more uniquely packaged drinks.  These new cans are “slim” and elegant and align with the healthy lifestyle trend that is on the rise.  Lighter beers now look lighter because of the way they are being packaged in tall “slim” can and they stand out on a shelf at the store making you even more likely to grab can of fun.  Companies shifting to these new designs say they are more cost effective to make, save space in the cooler, and they look sleek.

Regardless of these and other explanations for this transition, we found out this change in cans also means people are ending up with warm beer because they don’t have a coozie that fits! NOOOOO!!! We at BoozinGear do not support warm beer.  To make sure that you can keep the party going no matter what can shape and size you have we now care your go to place to find SLIM can coozies.  Nearly impossible to find, the custom sized SLIM can coozies are available at www.boozingear.com!

The Perfect Father's Day Gift Father's Day is this weekend and everyone is scrambling looking for a unique gift that the special father doesn't already own. I have found the perfect gift, similar to the lately popular steel insulated coolers, the BruMate Hopsulators are the latest evolution to the beer koozie. These can coolers keep your drink TWENTY times colder than the high quality neoprene cooler which could be beneficial for those big beers that tend to get warm if you aren't on a mission...

This sought after Father's Day gift this year is the Hopsulator Juggernaut! Available in a couple color options, these high end can coolers will hold the "fathers" tall boy and keep it ice cold to the last drop. These are an amazing koozie with great use and purpose, unlike those tiny beer koozies made of scuba foam. BruMate has these custom sized for the 24 or 25 oz cans; you will ensure your special Father has cold beer for years to come. (he probably deserves it)

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day With Mans Best Friend I'll be spending St. Patrick's Day 2019 at home with my dog a Blue Pitbull named, Lambo. Drinking a car bomb alone doesn't have the same appeal as with five of your best friends at the bar. Lambo ruined St. Patrick’s Day for me this year when he got sick. I didn't believe it was possible for dogs, but he caught a simple cold and needs a little extra love. With temperatures still below freezing this March, I decided to stay in and keep warm with Lambo. I was able to make the most of the Irish geared celebration. Here is how the day has been spent...

After my Bailey's and coffee for breakfast, I decided to begin sipping on a bottle of my favorite, Jameson Irish Whiskey. Lambo gave me a pouty look, and I realized that despite us doggy cold he wanted to celebrate! I gave my four legged friend the entire selection of  DRINKING DOG TOYS and let him narrow his choice down to three. Of course, he wanted to get in the spirit and grabbed a matching toy; a bottle of BLAMESON. How ironic! He may be to blame that I am not out at a pub or kissing the Blarney Stone but we are both having a great time. I hope you are too.
